“Life is good, Zoey!”, my friend’s father exclaimed to the dog after he got home from work.
Life, good! I was in Seattle to visit a friend and celebrate Thanksgiving like-in-the-movies and I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. I saw zero evidence of life being good. Yes, my life sucked. My parents had gotten a divorce, the business I had started as a notification philosopher wasn’t working, and, as always, I was short on money. I was utterly depressed.
You see, I always felt I had a thing or two to do in this life. But I didn’t know what to do to get it out. And despite tremendous effort from my side in reading books, hiring coaches and getting (freelance) jobs, I just couldn’t get clear on what it was that I had to do unfold creatively. I felt so directionless and SO stuck. If you’re reading this, you might know the frustration that goes hand in hand with this state of being.
Basically, I was lacking habits to support my creativity.
My creativity, that is so crucial on my mission to add beauty and meaning to the lives of others.
Underlying everything that I’ve been up to over these first 33 years of my life, I have been developing habits. And today I want to share with you 3 of my best habits. In the hope that you find them helpful. And if it doesn’t serve you personally, then I hope it serves your understanding of the needs of a creative & introverted friend, family member or lover.

Its gonna be a hat and its gonna have ears.
Love making it up as I go with gorgeous yarn from @dyehappyyarn. This is dirty sonshine in strength, and it is soft and beautiful and I cant wait to wear it.
I've been seeing a lot of posts lately how folks don't want to see or hear about anything pumpkin / pumpkin spice related because they're still drinking their margaritas in the sunshine. 🍍🌻🎃
For the record, this girl loves margaritas, sunshine and pumpkins.... ...and pineapples!
I always believe there's room for everyone at the table. I'll bring margaritas and pumpkin bread and they'll be something for everyone! ❤
Hoping you all find something to be grateful for today. And if no one told you today, you're doing an awesome job. Be you. Be kind. ❤❤❤
Ps. New neutral and fall items hit the @lazydogvintage today. Have a great weekend! ❤🍍

I have decided to start a fresh and create a new account for my illustrations! I haven't posted on here for absolutely ages because I started studying Illustration at university last year! Because of this I haven't had the time to create any portraits like the ones on this account, as they sometimes took over 40 hours to complete. While the posts on my new account will be a bit different, feel free to give it a follow to keep updated with my drawings, illustrations and uni work! Xx . .

Ciao from Italy! 👋🏻
We’ve been exploring Bergamo for a couple days and every corner of this place is a dream! The food, the views, the sounds, the stairs and hills...walking off all that pizza, pasta and gelato! 😋
You can still join us Saturday for Kosha Mapping with Reiki. You can get your ticket on Eventbrite or at the door. This is not a physical practice. This is a relaxing, exploratory workshop. You will experience a series of short meditations (no experience needed!) and get to draw/doodle/create on a life sized tracing of your body. Dress comfortably. You can bring your mat if you like. Exchange is $20. 💚☀️🤲🏻🌈

The new logo is designed, made into stickers, and ready for a training near you! The design is in honor of the Tuskegee Airmen my dad taught me about and captures my desire to help others and create quality content. I'm excited for what the future holds and the opportunities to create and share my passion for creativity and visual storytelling moving forward.

Our emotions are meant to serve us, to protect us and inspire us. Sometimes what we are feeling about a certain situation is based on our perspective of that situation rather than what is real. Take a step back and understand why you are feeling the way you are. 😊
Smith: ...you could be bought and sold and so could I.
Hero: That’ll end with freedom.
Smith: But what if it don’t somehow. Sometimes I get the feeling the heart of thing won’t change easy or quick.
Just over 3 years ago, I limped the planks with THE @sterlingkbrown , uttering the words of @suzanloriparks in FATHER COMES HOME FROM THE WARS (parts 1, 2 and 3)
