Yesterday was a chaotic rumble of turmoil where very few things went as planned. My brain was twisting in the fog, spinning wildly trying to make sense out of medical billing errors threatening to cost thousands of dollars because of other people's mistakes. Scribbles and splattered ink demanding their pound of flesh. So I did two things that sometimes help in the middle of panicked fury. I focused on what I could control and organized more things. Heavy things. Hard things. Things that could take all I had to unleash on their boxes as I pushed and shoved them toward a temporary resting spot in my garage
-
And then I painted. Not lovely perfectly detailed lines and loops but strokes that would jab and rip paper if it weren't digital ink. I knew I didn't have energy to wrangle actual supplies. My iPad became a contained place to explore the intuitive painting I am enthralled by that @christine.l.sullivan creates, and I not so secretly wish I could be beamed over to her workshop in Redding (RDD peeps check it out). Somehow the day all spilled out into pixels and color codes and textures and somewhere in the spilling my soul settled enough to chip away at the to-do mountain in my calendar. But only after my inner 5 year-old was done cherishing time on the grown up big-girl version of her etch-n-sketch

Sometimes the hardest part of anything is the beginning. Tho' beginning with coffee (or your morning bevvy of choice) certainly helps. We research and learn and plan and reduce risks and build a supportive team of allies, but at some point we just have to start
-
Tiders, let's start a little #TideTalkTuesday action going on here. Starting is scary and hard and beautiful and a tangle of so. many. things. SO. MANY. THINGS. Especially when we throw health uncertainties into the mix. Do we take a leap to teach that in-person class even though we may or may not be able to show up? Will the world judge our work and our worth differently because of disability or chronic illness? Do we stretch ourselves to do the in person art show even though we will likely have to deal with accessibility issues, not to mention art-show-people-hangover that takes a week or a month to recover from? How do we navigate a seemingly never-ending series of trade offs & contingencies? Some things are just more complex, beginning can be one of them
-
What tips, insight, thoughts or experience have you had with starting something new in your creative biz? Have you faced challenges unique to our #creativeandchronicallyill community? Share your story and wisdom in the comments, how we can be truly supportive community, as well as what you wish the creative economy realized about the art of starting

Rather, we gather online to serve creative entrepreneurs who are managing a chronic illness or disability. There are unique aspects of being a creative who is simultaneously managing health issues, so we want to be a community who can gather, support and cheer you on in the spirit of #communityovercompetition

Spent the morning staring at gorgeous moving art with this beautiful mama of mine, and meeting some of the kind and helpful people that work there. I’m SO excited to spend 5 Saturdays diving deep into poetry in this space. And I have to say this is the first time we’ve been out in a major public place and enjoyed a lot of it. We had to push through some sensory issues but I have to say it happened to be super quiet and we loved it. This is a gem in Jacksonville ✨

This week is a particularly busy week in the office with tight deadlines and long hours. Not to mention working after hours on my coaching business!
⠀
Queue stress and overwhelm? 😦
⠀
Not this time! I've purposefully scheduled in time and space to just be. Time to recharge and find some peace in the madness. 🧘🏼‍♀️
⠀
It's making such a difference in my stress levels this week. Seems counterintuitive, but my productivity is on point! 👌🏻
⠀
Leave 👍👍👍 if you make time for a little calm among chaos.

This friends. This. Confession time. I just finished watching @brenebrown on her Netflix special Call to Courage for the 4th time. Time 1: I bawled through half a box of Kleenex. Time 2: I listened while working on house projects. Time 3: I watched with Mom on my iPhone because our smart TV was having connection probs. This last time- I watched slow over several days & took 5 pages of notes. Sketch note style- or my version thereof
-
And here are a few peeks at them. I know looking at someone else’s homework is typically frowned upon but y’all lets just call this a team project. 😉😉 Because that’s what courage and vulnerability are, team sports, right? (Yup, mixing those metaphors like a champ) Huge thank you and shout out to @ashlynscarter for encouraging me to share them because I probably would have kept them tucked away
-
I have forever doodled. Even got in trouble for it on occasion. Understanding comes for me when my heart, head and hands connect. Writing it out forces me to slow and inscribe and see where the current subject reaches out to pull in relevant content already held in my soul. Note-taking can be both meditation & muse. I use shapes and colors and lettering styles to emphasize & synthesize content as I go. And y’all know me by now but it has to be pretty. Notes are where my enneagram 5w4 take flight together
-
The story I’m telling myself (love this line) becomes the story I live out of. So I want to recognize when the story is more aligned to where I’ve been than where I am or where I’m going. I’ll be writing a blog series on all this in the next few weeks... so consider this a lil’ preview 😊. Deeply grateful for each of you

My biggest dream is to get out of the corporate grind and serve amazing, creative high achievers.⠀
⠀
I've met SO MANY talented artists who have important things to say and create, but feel like they're not worthy of putting their ideas out into the world. It makes me so sad. 😞
⠀
It lights me UP to help these bad-ass creatives flip that narrative so that they feel empowered to share their art and passion with the world! I wake up in the morning excited to witness the amazing things my clients will create! 🤗
⠀
I ❤️ YOU more than SPAM 😄
⠀
🔥 What are you fired up about this week?

🔥🌱☠🦁 I often find myself returning to this journal entry from March.

I've just shared it with a friend who is beginning their own cataclysmic time of transition/shift/change/growth and I KNOW how fucking scary that can feel.

I share it here too, to maybe inspire some courage if you need it. //I used to wonder why you would chose to be brave when you could just be comfortable. But comfortable isn't always safe. And safe so often isnt that comfortable either.

As a hufflepuff I never understood why the Gryffindors so valued courage but I get it now.

I understand what it feels like to need to be brave. How much courage it has taken to examine what and where I need to heal// You can take the leap AND feel afraid.

I believe in you!

When I was grinding out two retail jobs, the last thing I wanted to do was network. As an introvert, I used up all my energy on the sales floor and needed to crash when I got home. 😴
⠀
Instead of trying to work up the energy to go to networking events (which I don't find enjoyable anyway!), I started reaching out to friends I hadn't spoken to in years. It rekindled a sense of community and belonging. 😊
⠀
In fact, one of the friends I reconnected with is how I got my current position as Creative Director! You never know who in your personal network could lead you to your next opportunity. 🙌
⠀
Leave ❤️❤️❤️ and tag a friend you can reach out to for anything.

When I found myself in a downward spiral, head full of a negative thoughts, it was hard to be creative and do work I was proud of. Everything felt dumb and pointless. Heck, I didn't feel like even doing anything! 😕
⠀
Recommended by a friend, I picked up Chop Wood, Carry Water by @realjoshuamedcalf It's a fun, quick read about falling in love with the process as you master your craft. This parable was the inspiration and motivation I needed to start my upward climb back toward my dreams.
⠀
📚It made me hungry for more personal development books; books that pushed negative thoughts aside and filled my mind with possibility and hope. The more I read, the more those positive voices quieted the loud voices of my anxiety and depression.
⠀
Now whenever I slide back down, I have a handful of books I can grab for a little pick-me-up. Some other favorites:
⠀
📘Basically anything by @brenebrown because she is amazing and her work resonates hard with me
📗The Big Leap by Gay Henricks
📙The Unstoppable Influencer: Be You. Be Fearless. Transform Lives. by @natashahazlett
📕An Audience of One: Reclaiming Creativity for Its Own Sake by Srini Rao @unmistakableceo
📘The War of Art by Steven Pressfield

What books give you a perspective shift and fill you with possibility and motivation?

It's easy to choose fear over courage, but it takes tremendous strength to face fears and choose courage. Wherever you are today, I pray you take one step closer towards courage. It isn't easy, but it's worth it!

One small step at a time!

This week I'm sharing how I got unstuck and on my way toward work that lights me up.
⠀
One of the first things I did after I got laid off from the game studio was start running. I had NEVER been a runner. I managed track in high school, but never participated, so this was a surprising turn of events for me!

Running gave me an outlet. It is a way to clear my head and shake off the darkness. A runners high is no joke! I always feel better after a run.
⠀
I know running isn't for everybody, whether for physical/health reasons or just personal preference. The key is finding some form of physical activity that you ENJOY! Something that gets your body moving, heart pumping, and brain releasing endorphins.
⠀
It's one of the quickest ways I know to change my overall mood!
⠀
What do you like to do to stay active?

Flashback to 2012
I was Lead 3D Animator on a mobile game at a start-up company. It was my first industry job out of college and I was using my freshly developed skills professionally. 🙌 It only goes up from there, right?
⠀
Wrong.
⠀
The project got cancelled weeks away from launch. 🥺
⠀
Although it had absolutely nothing to do with my skills, my self esteem took a huge hit. I was convinced no one else would hire me. After all, it was just a fluke these guys did, right?!
⠀
Unemployment. Check.
Retail job. Check.
Two retail jobs. Check and check.
⠀
The long days were draining and it felt impossible to create any personal art, let alone find another animation position. I was pretty much doomed to life of uninspiring, unfulfilling work.
⠀
❓Anyone else relate to that feeling?
⠀
Yeah? It's a soul-sucking place to be in, but it is totally possible to dig yourself out of that hole. It is possible to re-light that fire in your soul and step into a job that you look forward to every day.
⠀
Next week, I'm going to drop some tips that helped me out of the slump and toward work that gives me energy. Be sure to follow so you don’t miss them! 💜

@willsmith knows what's up!
⠀
Whether you think you can or can't, you are right.
⠀
Self belief is critical when chasing your dreams. Over the last few years, I've done extensive work to strengthen my belief muscle.
⠀
I went from keeping in the background, too afraid to speak up and offer my opinions to sharing my ideas and standing up for what I think is right.
⠀
I've taken a stand for YOU. The creative with big aspirations who's found themselves stuck in a soul-sucking job with seemingly no way out. The creative who knows they are meant for MORE, but can't seem to get unstuck from their current situation.
⠀

Over the last few years, I've done extensive work to strengthen my belief muscle. ⠀ I went from keeping in the background, too afraid to speak up and offer my opinions to sharing my ideas and standing up for what I think is right. ⠀ I've taken a stand for YOU. The creative with big aspirations who's found themselves stuck in a soul-sucking job with seemingly no way out. The creative who knows they are meant for MORE, but can't seem to get unstuck from their current situation. ⠀ Visit the link in my bio to schedule a Strategy Call where I will help you take the first step of saying I CAN and mean it! ⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ #wisdomwednesday #wisdomoftheday #motivationquote #motivationalqoutes #courageouscreative #courageouscreativity #artistsofig #girlsinanimation #womeninspiringwomen #creativeladies #minnesotaartist #minnesotamaker #heretocreate #chaseyourdreams #dreambigger #dreamchasers #fightforyourdreams #dreamlife #dreamlifecreation

Deep. I’m having so much fun playing with abstract expressionistic digital watercolor on my iPad. Love all the @procreate updates! Kid in a candy store

Does a lack of motivation mean something is wrong and you shouldn't do the thing you dream of doing?
⠀
Of course not!
⠀
Many of us tend to not take any action when we're not motivated. Many of us leave our dreams of getting into that major studio/having a successful freelance career/selling thousands of books/insert dream here... on the back burner because the spirit just isn't moving us today... or tomorrow... or the next day... ⠀
Motivation is finite. It is a spark. You need discipline and consistent action to keep that flame lit. 🔥
⠀
Even if that means just 5 minutes a day.
⠀
⏰ Try giving yourself permission to sit down for just 5 minutes to work on your project. You can quit after that, but my guess is you'll find momentum and keep going!
⠀
And if that's not the case, that's okay. Just do it again tomorrow... and the next day... and the next.
⠀
📆 Those small, consistent steps forward will add up over time.
⠀
Leave 👍👍👍, if you're spending 5 minutes on your dream today!
⠀

Kinda loving this new joy chair. Ok it’s a task chair but when you L-O-V-E what you do it’s ACTually a joy chair. Especially when it comes with a story of incredible creative customer service and a great deal
-
Office hack- want an armless task chair? Look at ones that have arms that are basically screwed on separately and don’t serve any other function- then leave them off. Free the arms- you got this 👊🏻

I'm still learning to trust my creative process. Those of us who are in a job setting where we are expected to create on a moments notice, know how hard it can be to create on demand.
⠀
Trying to force creativity is like trying to force a square peg into a round hole. Just doesn't work! We stare at a blank page until we need to rush and put out something less than our best.
⠀
For me, stepping back to take a walk allows my mind to wander and make connections on it's own accord. It is so counter intuitive when I feel like I need to be in front of my computer to do any work. In reality though, that's the best thing I can do when I'm stuck. Trying to force ideas to come only makes that creative block greater.
⠀
I trust that my time away from the computer will benefit me when I return to it. That once I sit down, the ideas will flow and I can execute faster than if I hadn't stepped away.⠀
⠀
Leave 👍👍 , if you're learning to trust the process.

I love traveling and experiencing all the unique attractions places have to offer. I don't travel as much as I'd like to though. As I step foot into my 30's, I decided it was time to do more of what sets my soul on fire.

A lot of people dread hitting these birthday milestones, but I honestly couldn't be more excited for what these next 10 years will bring! Starting with more adventure! Top 3 places on my bucket list are⠀
🛫 Iceland

⚡ Wizarding World of Harry Potter⠀😁

So for #FridayIntroductions I thought I'd share a peek behind the screen. Words and I have had a complicated relationship since the TBI last year. But I refuse to settle for where I am now. I will keep writing and reading and looking things up. I applied for a poetry writing seminar this summer. I'm starting to write a fiction concept. I surround myself and immerse myself in letters and word origins and wander daily through thesaurus.com
-
The story I tell myself is that the words are all still in my brain because they are. My brain and I just have to find the right pathway back to finding them. And I choose to believe that when the connections DO happen, it will be better than before. That the words will fit together in bold, beautiful new ways to form a language I would never have accessed any other way. I am writing my way back from the fog
-
Just because something is hard doesn't mean it isn't also beautiful. There's a reason we make movies about people who swim the ocean 7 or who free solo El Capitan. Because they push us closer to swimming our own race and climbing our own wall. What's your mountain? Some of our biggest victories are hidden ones

bloom
dm perry

they said:
bloom where you are planted 
which meant bloom where 
you are starved and strangled,
find peace amidst 
the ash heaps 
of yesterday,
break thru the concrete
of dried up dreams,
settle down into our system
and make friends with its bars

thank you for the offer
i said, but i can't become
who i am by staying 
where you are

so i lifted up my head,
turned,
and rode the wind

 #MothersDay... For so many of us it’s complicated. I made this print for my mama this year, who is every one of these words. But for those of you who have lost moms... I get choked up even going there. For the women who have lost babies or who are suffering infertility or who are trying to get pregnant, who have a complicated relationship with this day and all it brings with it, I want to say... you are seen, you are loved, you are celebrated and you are not alone
-
For any of you who need a last minute gift for a mama- this piece is live in my shop, an instant printable download 💕

Beloveds, yes you are so loved. These last few days have been blends of a push to launch a shop, mixed with a transformer blowing at 3 AM and shaking my house (the only thing damaged was sleep), taking things as slow as I need knowing this shop was not emergency (even though I'm inclined to push through and over a cliff), and deciding to go live with fewer finished products than I envisioned (but will be adding to quickly). Here's my fancy launch strategy: Doors are open, y'all come on in. Between now & Sunday at 11:59PM use the code for SHOPLAUNCH35 for 35% off your first order
-
In the shop you'll find: Thrive Guides™ (on wholehearted practical topics for creatives), Templates (Tools & Workflows- Coming Soon), Trello & Tech kits (coming soon), Toolkits (super practical deep dives into areas of creative biz strategy), & Prints (you can print at home). I chose getting started over getting it perfect. So let me know: What types of creative, business resources have you been looking for and unable to find? Either at all, or specifically meeting a certain need? PUH-LEASE pop them in the comments below
-
This Thrive Guide™ is 65 practical things you can do to get out of a creative rut. Or past a creative block. Plus I share my number one tool for cultivating a creative practice no matter where you are in the world
-
A huge thanks to @shaycochrane and her gorgeous stock photography from the @scstockshop and @socialsquares for giving me the visuals I need to make this shop dream a reality. {No one is paying me to say this- just wanted to give credit where it is DUE!}

These last few days have been blends of a push to launch a shop, mixed with a transformer blowing at 3 AM and shaking my house (the only thing damaged was sleep), taking things as slow as I need knowing this shop was not emergency (even though I'm inclined to push through and over a cliff), and deciding to go live with fewer finished products than I envisioned (but will be adding to quickly). Here's my fancy launch strategy: Doors are open, y'all come on in. Between now & Sunday at 11:59PM use the code for SHOPLAUNCH35 for 35% off your first order - In the shop you'll find: Thrive Guides™ (on wholehearted practical topics for creatives), Templates (Tools & Workflows- Coming Soon), Trello & Tech kits (coming soon), Toolkits (super practical deep dives into areas of creative biz strategy), & Prints (you can print at home). I chose getting started over getting it perfect. So let me know: What types of creative, business resources have you been looking for and unable to find Either at all, or specifically meeting a certain need PUH-LEASE pop them in the comments below - This Thrive Guide™ is 65 practical things you can do to get out of a creative rut. Or past a creative block. Plus I share my number one tool for cultivating a creative practice no matter where you are in the world - A huge thanks to @shaycochrane and her gorgeous stock photography from the @scstockshop and @socialsquares for giving me the visuals I need to make this shop dream a reality. {No one is paying me to say this- just wanted to give credit where it is DUE!} - #designedtothrivecreative #courageouscreativity #purposemeetsprofit #designedtothrive #designedtothriveshop #thriveguides #creativeatheart #creativepreneur #creativebusinessowner #risingtidesociety #calledtobecreative #creativityfound #communityovercompetition #jaxcreatives #wearethecreativeeconomy #beingboss #womenwhowork #createcultivate #madetomatter #soulcareforcreatives #thelittlevictories #dowhatyoulove #creativebusiness #illustratedbusiness #dontquityourdaydream #withgritandgrace #storymatters #goaldigger #shetheroar

"Those who cannot be tamed are disturbers of the universe, and without them we would be infinitely poorer." -Madeleine L'Engle
-
I read these words in the quiet this morning, mixed with memes and greetings of "May the 4th be with you." Because of course it is, and it's world Star Wars Day. And then the news from my twitter feed ricocheted through my soul: Rachel Held Evans slipped into eternity during the early hours of this day celebrating the story of a scrappy resistance that topples an unjust empire. Somehow it seems both a cruel irony and uncanny timing all in the same breath. And we are truly infinitely poorer
-
Rachel's words and humor and grace have given voice and language to so many of us who have found life-giving spiritual expression outside evangelicalism but still in community, calling us all to a larger narrative. Her words state it better than I can:
-
"This is what God's kingdom is like: a bunch of outcasts and oddballs gathered at a table, not because they are rich or worthy or good, but because they are hungry, because they said yes. And there's always room for more." —Rachel Held Evans
-
I'm still stunned by her loss. Time is the most precious resource we have beloved. May we live and love well, and steward it from the place of knowing we are deeply, tenderly, and relentlessly loved

Spring is here. What I love is flowers, the fresh air and the calm breezes. .
What I don’t love is the weeds that come into my garden. .
It’s challenging to sit outside and paint when they stare at me. 😱
.
Well, as artists we choose what our world can look like. Before it is art - it’s imagination in your head and heart ❤️ .
Here is what my potted plant as seen in my head. .
I’ll spare you the image of the weeds I’m now pulling out of him. .

I am feeling like a butterfly this week. Transforming. .
.
.
The week started out with my interview being published. Then one of my photos was featured online. .
.
.
Today I taught a watercolor class for special needs adults. .
.
2019 is coming through. I’m very grateful for what is happening. .

I’m thankful for what will come. .

Sometimes I write the things to others I most need to hear myself. Yes we need need to know our biz numbers, but we can’t let them determine our sense of self. It’s a trap I know I need reminding of regularly
-
I’m not defined by the numbers of my followers, or the numbers the scale says (that one’s the hardest if I’m honest), or my clothes size (tied with the scale), or my bank account or my IQ score (post TBI- I don’t have a new number & thank heavens I don’t) or my email list size or the bajillion combinations of metrics that try to define and decide my world and my worth
-
Had a little aha moment these last few weeks. I have been trying to fit this new business into the shape of the old business I lost last year after the accident instead of simply letting it become in new ways that embrace the season I’m in. I’m convinced one way I’m going to come back from the brain injury fog is to write my way back through it, so expect more writing and art/creativity to be showing up here. And one thing I’m SUPER passionate about is the intersection of creativity, story and soul care especially as it unfolds for creatives and entrepreneurs. I might just become a professional cheer leader after all, because I don’t know about you, but I can always use more genuine targeted encouragement 🎉✍🏻👩🏻‍🎨

Poetry on pillows... yes please. Give this girl an India ink marker and an empty surface and she can be dangerous. (As my momma knows all too well from when I grew up... #artistproblems)
-
I saw a pillow with the line, “I’ve found the one my soul loves” on it 2+ years ago... and loved the concept but not the lettering or the price... flash forward to last night... I finally found an empty pillow cover that was right and broke out a large India ink market. Some times experiments turn out SO much better than planned

Swipe to see who wanted to make sure I knew his opinion of who that line applies to ☺️

Wow. I am so excited the interview out today on @sdvoyagermag .
.
.
As I said to myself in January that 2019 would be the year I am focused on my art. .
.
.
I am so grateful for all the support I have from everyone. I’ve been a happy to have my paintings showcased at us @backfencesociety and the Vista Chamber of Commerce. .
.
.
I have started teaching regular classes in watercolor painting and beginning to see my tribe grow little by little. .
.
.
The watercolor painting classes I am teaching not only focus on art and painting but incorporating the lessons I’ve learned studying Yoga. I include meditation into the lessons I teach. .

Wow. 3 months have flown by. I hung my paintings back in February and in a few weeks, it will be time to take them down. .
.

They will be on display until May 7th at the Vista Chamber of Commerce. .

I’m very grateful for them to invite me to showcase my work. .

He crossed over the rainbow bridge last March. I’m so happy that I painted him. And of course, I miss him terribly. .

Life by design, not by default.  #FridayIntroductions about to go deep. Thought I’d share a few things that haven’t been shared here in a while or maybe at all
-
For 20 years, I worked in full-time, ordained, senior-level, yes-I-was-actually-a-female-pastor, organizational-church leadership. I met some of the kindest, most dedicated people, & I saw (& walked through) plenty of straight-up abuse. I saw beauty as well as profound dysfunction. I experienced the unexplainable. I also watched news of actual goodness be twisted into shame-based narratives that blame, bully, and build all kinds of walls
-
Yes, I was part of that system. Then my journey led me out of it into the wilderness. But this wilderness is filled with life and bushes that burn in ordinary places. I’m now unordained (legally speaking). Papers turned in (a long while ago). Jargon mostly weeded through (I didn’t realize it sounded so strange). With truer relationships & healthier community than I knew were possible
-
I can't honestly talk about thriving without the inner piece. I get it-- My perspective might not fit where you are. And if you've been hurt by the system, as carefully as I choose my words I’m probably going to blow it & say something triggering. Just because I’m an imperfect human. But if you’re a spiritual refugee or your soul story unfolded in ways you could have never imagined, I don’t just see you-- I’m WITH you
-
I’m going to do the exact opposite of what’s a safe biz decision. I’m going to start talking more about my personal, spiritual, if-you-need-a-term-probably-contemplative-would-fit-best journey as I write again. All in the context of creativity, entrepreneurship & thriving, but friend thriving is always first an inside job
-
Keep what fits, leave what doesn’t, never any obligation. Ever. Just freedom to be you, & to be wildly, profoundly & relentlessly loved. ‘K, I think need to go design myself a piece of avocado toast for dinner 🥑😘

With truer relationships & healthier community than I knew were possible - I can't honestly talk about thriving without the inner piece. I get it-- My perspective might not fit where you are. And if you've been hurt by the system, as carefully as I choose my words I’m probably going to blow it & say something triggering. Just because I’m an imperfect human. But if you’re a spiritual refugee or your soul story unfolded in ways you could have never imagined, I don’t just see you-- I’m WITH you - I’m going to do the exact opposite of what’s a safe biz decision. I’m going to start talking more about my personal, spiritual, if-you-need-a-term-probably-contemplative-would-fit-best journey as I write again. All in the context of creativity, entrepreneurship & thriving, but friend thriving is always first an inside job - Keep what fits, leave what doesn’t, never any obligation. Ever. Just freedom to be you, & to be wildly, profoundly & relentlessly loved. ‘K, I think need to go design myself a piece of avocado toast for dinner 🥑😘 - #withgritandgrace #courageouscreativity #purposemeetsprofit #designedtothrive #creativeatheart #creativepreneur #risingtidesociety #calledtobecreative #creativityfound #communityovercompetition #madetomatter #wearethecreativeeconomy

"New Adventures". Acrylic painting by Ana M. Bars.

Today. Along with much of the world, I watched 800+ years of history be engulfed in flames in mere minutes, reminding us all of the fragility of every thing human hands build. No matter how majestic or perfect or enduring. One day, everything returns to dust
-
Years ago, I stood peering up at the flying buttresses, pretty much in awe how such creativity and beauty could unfold with no iPhones or Photoshop or any of the techie tools that order my day. How brave artisans gave themselves to creating for creating's sake, because they were called to a laying down of their lives with creativity knowing they would never see the final result of their efforts, yet believing in the vision unseen nonetheless. That to me is a perfect picture of what faith looks like
-
I'm not sure if it was that, or watching fire devour generations of artistry, or that France and her strong, beautiful people stole part of my heart 9 years ago, but it's been a somber day over here. Tonight I'm reminded of the words of Antoine de Saint-Exupery, "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye." And it is with hearts seeing the unseen we can forge forward, seeing cathedrals in the middle of rock piles and hope in the midst of smoke and ashes

Nothing says #luxurywedding photographer like a custom handmade wax seal with your one-of-a-kind branding elements on it. @brandygraceweddings pretty much inspired my fave B design ever... putting this in the mail tomorrow as long as my head behaves itself #tbiwarrior

Courageous Creative by @jenny.randle was so much fun that I went through it twice!! This is a 31 day interactive journal that encourages the stretching and building of our creative muscles. I loved the reminder that, “you are made in the image of the ultimate creator. Creativity is in your DNA...You are chosen to partner with God in creative ways to influence our culture and reflect Him...to glorify and enjoy God.” I had a lot of fun doing the daily creative challenges while being encouraged to let go of perfectionism. “Perfectionists fixate in making flawless art, but our greatest pursuit is to find God’s perfect heart.” Allowing creativity to flow through me each day after meditating on The Creator himself was invigorating and freeing. Tying my creativity back to Him really opened up my mind and heart. Jenny speaks truth when she states, “placing your identity in our Savior will give you the confidence to try new things, pursue big ideas, and trust Him above all things.” .

A special project I’m super thrilled at how it turned out. (I can’t say more just yet but super fun things unfolding behind the scenes here 🙌🏻) And it’s so so true. There is no greater artistry that loving people well

Perhaps this should be a blog post friends. Maybe I’ll let it simmer & write a bit more. But I was thinking through Q2 with my #Powersheets & contemplating a word for this season. TOWARDS
-
Celebrating every step in the right direction. A celebration of where we are going instead of where we have been. An active, relentless choice to choose hope. A moment-by-moment contending for gratitude and joy no matter how simple, how small. A setting of our faces like flint moving determined in the direction of the dreams we are made for. A leaning hard on grace and compassion and all that is good and beautiful. I may not be where I want to be yet. But I am moving TOWARDS with every breath and choice and step. And I will raise the roof with gratitude and shatter the ceiling with fortitude because I have not arrived but I am moving closer… moving TOWARDS
-
Brave soul, what are you moving towards? So often we focus on and rehearse the very things we want to get away from. But what we focus on sets our direction. What can you focus on that serves you by moving you towards your goals for 2019? How can you celebrate every little step in the right direction? Because Beloved if the last 15 months have taught me anything... it is that celebration is a survival skill  #tbiwarrior 💚

Celebrating this lil’ gal’s adoption day over here. I had the privilege of meeting her in person and hanging out with her gorgeous mama @brandygraceweddings and precious family a few weeks ago, annnnnnnd designing her dedication stationery last November. (Get ‘em started young on loving paper, right?) Adoption has to be one of the bravest journeys any family can take and I am still so honored to have gotten to be a small little bit of celebrating theirs. Ahem having a totally self-proclaimed unofficial auntie who’s a stationery designer means some epic birthday cards though 😉🌸🌺🖌💕

Any traveling artists out there? It’s so easy to make a custom watercolor travel tin. All you need is a metal pencil box. I like mine deep enough to hold some other basics. Add pans with magnetic tape. Fill them with your favorite paint colors. I tend to stick with 1-2 main brands to keep it cohesive. Make a color chart, add a pencil, pen, eraser, brushes, pipette and paper towel and off you go. You have your very own grab and go kit!🎨🖌 paint: @mijello_mission gold, @danielsmithartistsmaterials Brushes: simply Simmons by @dalerrowneynorthamerica

It looks like these beauties were painted in real life with shades of quinacradone magenta and opera rose. Yep I’m over here color obsessed. Spring you are truly glorious

Sometimes the bravest victory of all is showing up... not waiting for when it’s all perfect. But showing up anyway
-
January 2018 my world changed. I used to feel smart... like my brain would fire on all cylinders as I learned and researched and studied new things. Then I was in a serious car accident and had a traumatic brain injury. And I haven’t felt smart since. Every day is a struggle to do things I loved that were nearly effortless before. Everyday I just want my brain back and to feel like me again
-
But (most) every day I make a decision to show up anyway. Even when I feel sluggish and slow and like a fraction of my former self. Even when my brain feels more like molasses than Niagara. Even when it feels pointless to even try. Sometimes the greatest victory of all is showing up anyway. Or at least that’s what I tell myself 100x before my toes hit the floor in the morning

I ’ve been wanting to try ink pouring abstraction for a while now. But I didn’t want the hassle of cleaning up a messy space. I spill pouring coffee let alone paint so… I poured pixels and created this on my iPad Pro with @procreate instead. I’m thinking it looks pretty ink legit 😆 and no mess after 🙌🏻✨🙌🏻✨
