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
It may be a dark cloud but you are the sky.
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
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 💫
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."⠀

**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. Gotta love #slayingonabudget

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
