You can create space for anything you value. ✨ Do you value art - creating/ selling/ buying/ encouraging/ believing? ☕️ Today is the first time in my grief journey that I woke up before the rest of the house and decided to paint with my time. Before tea and emails there was 15 minutes of silence and color. The space was ready and waiting. Space is amazing like that — you can create the space you know you want when you have the energy and it will be there to support you when you’re ready.
Baby love ✖️✖️ Hard to believe this was seven months ago. I remember thinking there was no greater feeling than this moment. Now Alessandra will run up to me for a cuddle in the midst of playing and I think to myself, there is no greater feeling than this.

Snow days are a huge perk of being a teacher. Just saying... I'm soaking up every second to be cozy at home and knit! How do you spend a snow day?

Getting back into painting after not doing it for a while is an exercise in patience. I don’t like feeling like a stranger to my paints and my brushes, and it’s easy to want to pack it in for another day. Thankfully I’ve learned that fun mark making exercises with a bigggg brush like this help me get back over the hump. 🖌 Baby steps!
Love, Hate & Other Filters by Samira Ahmed hits bookstores today! I highly recommend you check it out 🌟
It has a sensitive portrayal of Islamophobia, terrorism and extremism, which makes it a very current and relevant YA book.
At the same time, I was blown away by how much it paralleled my own high school experiences. I think that’s because Singapore is a place torn between the East and the West, where cultural ideals can be quite conflicting. For Maya, an Indian American Muslim, she was faced with a similar dichotomy between her family and her friends.

Cozying up with a new read this week. ☕️❄️ Thanks for the recommendation @caroline_joy ! I’m only halfway through and already feel this incredible desire to realign my life and find more with less. Can’t wait to start the #10x10challenge next week but feeling more and more drawn to #project333 for the remainder of the season. Any #10x10friends out there who have tried it before or want to try it with me? I figure... there’s no time like the present to make the changes I’ve wanted to make for years. 💕 #bemorewithless

🎈DAY TWO: Re-ignite a sense of PLAY 🎈 Choose a material that makes you smile or grabs your curiosity. Spend 10 minutes just exploring it, doodling with it, moving with it, writing about it. It’s not about making a thing, and it’s especially not about making a beautiful thing. Just have fun with it!
Finding your style of painting and discovering that you're in tune with your inspiration too is the most exciting thing! Right now I feel all my ideas are just pouring out of me onto my canvases and paper exactly as I want them too and it's delicious!
This form of creativity is always developing and and organically growing - and you naturally jump from one idea to the next. I'm fizzy with arty ideas and new creations just now and thoroughly loving this part of the artistic process while it lasts!
I know I'll change direction and stall at some point while I hone those next ideas but for now every day in my studio is a party and I'm so thankful for it!
Ready to work! 😘🤓 So 2018 goal is to #crushgoals ... This started by finally writing all my goals down last night in Trello (love @trelloapp ). From there, weekly Monday meeting is set in stone with the team AND I'm doing this post for a little accountability.
The mini rainbow collection from @replayrecycled fits in pretty seamlessly with my fiestaware. 🌈😍
(There’s a white bowl too, but that was being used at the time of this photo.😂 Ps, White products are 20% off this month.)
