Some have retail therapy — I have creative therapy. Making things makes me happy and is my outlet. Here are a few I did this evening. #recollectedpieces #pnwartist #pdxjeweleryartist #creativetherapy
I’ve been painting Christmas inspired pieces for reprint this season! I love Cardinals! 😍
I worked all morning on this flower swag and it kept me busy so that I didn’t have to think too hard about the anniversary of my sister’s passing being today. Then we got the happy news that my other sister had her baby this afternoon! * I couldn’t help but combine all these emotions into this photo proof for my customer. (Swipe to see) Photoshopped my new nieces’s name onto the board which is in memory of our sister who passed; Kaycee. * Celebrating life and respecting death today as I know I will see her again. Can’t wait to meet my new niece and present her with one of these pieces for her very own! #shareinspiration #lighttheworld #creativetherapy #creativelifehappylife #handmadewithlove #feltflowers
✨Merry & Bright!✨ #creativetherapy #allthefeels #diy

[MY SELF CARE] Clients tell me all the time “you’re just so calm all the time. You must really take care of yourself.” Yes, most of the time I am able to find moments in the day for myself. A trip to the neighboring coffee shop. Reading an inspirational magazine before bed. Enjoying a sugar free vegan brownie - yes, it is delicious @chocolatecoveredkatie 🍫 Snuggling with my kids while watching a movie. Other times, like the past few weeks, I have been neglecting those moments in favor of completing an online training program for my students. It is necessary for their momentum forward in the field of #expressiveartstherapy and I want to make sure that they get the best education possible. That being said, I have noticed that my eczema is slowly returning and my sleep patterns have become out of sync. It’s okay. Sometimes you push yourself for the common good or to achieve a long held dream. Just make sure that you allow yourself some time to recuperate and rejuvenate along the way. Today, I spent time chatting with a good friend. Make the time for your own self care, however that may look to you 😀 * Tell me about your self care ❤️👇🏼❤️👇🏼❤️👇🏼 #selfcare #selfcarethreads #selfcarefirst #selfcarematters #selfcaredaily #selfcaretips #wellnesswarrior #creativearts #creativeartstherapy #expressivearts #musictherapy #dancetherapy #dramatherapy #arttherapy #onlinelearning #candleseason #coffeeislife #youareworthit #loveyourself #counseling #creativetherapy #mentalhealthcounseling #mentalhealthmatters

What story do you tell yourself? Does it hold you back? I created The Doodling Colouring Questioning well-being workbook: A New Tale of Me, as a creative tool for confidence building. It’s used by home schooling parents, teachers, and life coaches to help kids write a better story for themselves. And as a bonus, it’s ageless! So you can use it too. For curious minds only!

This is Adeline! My first pillow named after a real person in my life, my mother-in-law. When I saw this print I immediately thought of her. The cross pattern just felt so Nina (the name she goes by) to me. It’s very ‘sharp’ she would say. I love this classic beauty. She is elegant, traditional and absolutely lovely, just like my incredible MIL❤️ . . #adeline #pillowbabe #pillowtalk #sugaranddirt #sugaranddirtdesigns #homedecor #handcrafted #handmade #handcraftedthrowpillows #handmadepillows #mudcloth #authenticmudcloth #mudclothpillows #makersmovement #momboss #creativetherapy #thatsdarling #ohwowyes #interiorlovers #instahome #homedecor #mybeautifulmess #makersgunnamake #dontquityourdaydream #creativepreneur

#Repost @dovetaildramatherapy thank you! So important- I come up against this all the time and never want to discourage anyone from doing something good for themselves but it is not a creative arts therapy without a creative arts therapist! #dramatherapy #imadramatherapist ・・・ Whilst it is great to promote self care or get involved in therapeutic activities for self-help, it is important to note that if you or someone you know is struggling with their mental health, being directed to a professional therapist will enable the appropriate space to be properly held and supported.

I dig this from our not-too-subtle punk prophet Henry Rollins. As I work as a sober coach with a team of scholastic-degree clinicians (who are way more “book smart” than I) the clients in our treatment center retain much more insight from them while I am in the room drawing my personal and relatable experience of the “mileage” which allows a powerful combination. It’s like if you became blind...would you rather sit and listen to your doctor on what life is going to be like or sit and walk with a blind person? Experience (with awareness and mindfulness) is the new PhD. (Thanks @shannanfiorenza !) #Repost @shannanfiorenza ・・・ If you haven’t walked the walk you shouldn’t be talking the talk 💫. • So many people these days are teaching about things they have never experienced 🤔. • Find someone who has traveled the path that you are on and has reached the destination that you wish to reach 💫. • Lead by your own example because those that are behind you need someone to light their way 💫

Mince pies were munched and the world was put to rights....but the most marvellous thing of all was that they all went home covered in glitter..it did make me smile 😁. Thank you ladies for a lovely morning.

Make a stand today. Quit while you are ahead. WE CAN HELP. Some laws of nature will never change. We truly don’t “have time”, as time has US and always will. Time is a gift. Abuse it and you lose it.

Stories, written and told, are valuable tools for getting to know ourselves and our eating disorders. Letter writing in particular can be a profoundly insightful and healing process and one that we often utilize in our program at Ai Pono.

The day after our cigar box transformation. The conversation was lead by characteristics of the transformational leader. Someone who inspires us and helps us transform with their authenticity. Our finished boxes were a reminder to perhaps be inspired or inspire others to find their awesome and be transformed! #create &innovate #transformationalleadership #heromakersatx #elevate &innovate #creativestudio #creativetherapy
Share your experience with a helping professional and how it impacted yourself as a mother.⠀ ⠀ "After about 6 months of struggling with PPD, I finally went to a counsellor. I found it SO HELPFUL. Once I added into my life the strategies she suggested and found I was still struggling on a daily basis, I knew I needed more help. I went to my family DR and was prescribed medication. It took about 4 weeks but slowly I started to feel so much better. It felt amazing to be able to cope with my life again and not feel like I needed to cry all the time. Shortly after that was the birth of my second baby and I was able to mamage motherhood SO MUCH better. I actually really enjoyed it. Also, the medication helped bring me to a place where I could embrace being a wife again and it really helped me get back to a point of being in love with my husband. I don’t know what could have happened if I hadn’t got help when I did."⠀ ⠀ EXERPT FROM THE POSTPARTUM STORY PROJECT⠀ ⠀ NOTE: Images and quotes are not necessarily related. #thepostpartumstoryproject #normalizementalhealth #seeksupport

A fitting reminder today after watering my garden ready for another stinker of a day here in Melbourne. So I just messaged a friend I studied Art Therapy with 10 years ago. She’s back visiting from where she now lives in Sweden and I haven’t seen her in a few years. She’s been back in town for a couple of weeks and I initially thought I wouldn’t bother contacting her because it’s just all too hard to organise, and also because there’s that mild anxiety that comes along with catching up with someone you haven’t seen for sometime. But then I remembered how close and connected we were and how I always felt good in her presence, so I sent her message asking to catch up, and I bet I won’t regret it! • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #infertility #pregnancy #motherhood #ivf #pregnancyloss #arttherapy #mindfulness #fertility #mindfulart #creativetherapies #infertile #arttherapist #mindfulartforwomen #kanmindfulartforwomen #creativetherapy #mentalhealth #women #depression #anxiety #women #girls #health #melbourne
Christmas Ornaments are listed and the website is updated with my new pillow designs. I’ll be closing shop at the end of the week until after Christmas. Any items that need shipping will be done on Friday Dec 14th so get those orders in by Thursday night please! 🙏🏻 . . I am beyond thankful for all the love and support my little shop has gotten these past 2 months. It’s been a crazy, busy and beautiful ride so far and I am looking forward to what 2019 has in store!
My wreath from my class earlier. Was so nice to make something I can keep 😀😀 #creativetherapy
**CREATE A STYLISH LOOK FOR UNDER $10!** Can you find ten extra minutes in your day? Ten extra dollars in your wallet? Do you need a new, inexpensive #styledlook ? Creativity, for me, is one of the most fun aspects of style. It’s inexpensive, fun, therapeutic, and overall, helps you to more fully express YOUR personal style. I purchased this super cute sweater from one of my holy grails for stylish consignment finds, @platosclosetcharlottesville . This beanie was a plain, but cozy one I found for around $2. I simply added some bedazzles from @michaelsstores , and in a matter of minutes, my inexpensive beanie was now a stylish statement piece that had people stopping me to admire.

😍 Loved tonight’s session! Painted our pebbles and told the young people the story of the “Magic pebbles”. How they can give you strength when you need it! Think we all need one 😊 Also did a yoga version of The 3 little pigs ☺️🧘🏻‍♀️ #creativetherapyforcayp #creativetherapy #yogaforkids #mindfulnessforkids #calmkids #creatingcalm #funforkids
Helping kids cultivate a mind-body connection gives them an opportunity to notice and accept who they are. Kids who have adhd, attachment challenges, a heightened sensory experience, trauma, or anxious thoughts are often misunderstood. They’re the ones getting phone calls home, “not listening”, lying, and “causing distraction” with their movements and silly-ness. Giving an opportunity for kids to notice their emotion and behavior and choose something to soothe themselves is one of my hearts passions. They’re not “bad kids”. They’re the status quo changers. - - I’m dreaming up some artsy kid therapy tools, share below if you’re interested! - - - - #kidtherapy #playtherapy #mindbodyconnection #adhdparenting #attachmenttheory #traumainformed #traumainformedschools #anxietysupport #sensoryintegration #selfawareness #mketherapy #mkemaker #mentalhealthawareness #creativetherapy #embodiment #alltheemotions

This morning I did some boring but soothing painting. I have done so much DIY over the last 2 years that I could totally get a van and be a one woman decorating success. However I'm going to stick to drawing, painting and talking mentalhealth. 🎄 Which I'll be doing this evening at @theorchardnorwich festive networking, they've been incredibly generous in giving me this platform to talk about what I do to a niche audience of creative therapist from around Norfolk. This evening, starts at 6:30 , check out their blog via the link in their bio for more info. 💛 #mhblogger #MyVillage #communityovercompetition #mentalhealth #mumpreneurs #recovery #trauma #traumarecovery #cPTSD #selfie #selfcare #selfaware #survivour #artist #artistsoninstagram #creativetherapy #survivourculture #cptsdrecovery #networking #painter #publicspeaking #mentalhealthawareness #norwich #norfolk #mumblog #norwichbloggers

Took inspiration from Mindful Christmas magazine for these homemade decorations. They're made with air dry clay which is very easy to use and low on mess/faff factor. I had such fun creating things and am pretty happy with how they turned out! If it looks like a child made them that's because they did; my inner child!! 😁🎄💖 #creativetherapy #innerchild #neverstopplaying #mindfulChristmas #christmaspresence #hygge #homemadedecorations

Day 96: Dandelion I usually prefer bold brush stokes or quick sketchy lines but the dandelion caught me out. I thought I'd honour it's lightness with my technique. I could sit here for hours drawing these lines over and over again. 🖤 #dandelion
