I love it when my children wake me well before 7am, I love it....if I repeat it often enough, will it come true? 🙈 oh well, I had enough time to sneak into my craft room to take a photo of last nights work. I added a few of my favourite blossoms round the edge of the box. That means today’s job is varnishing ready for it to be gifted. I’ve got some great matte varnish from @folkit.co too which means I won’t lose the Chalky finish. I’m not a big fan of shiny varnish. What’s your preference? • • • #handpaintedgift #handmadeisbettermade #createsomethingbeautiful #craftingismypassion #creativetime #mycreativelife #mypaintingjourney #youcanfolkit #funwithfolkit #folkit #imagetransfer #imagetransfertechnique #happysundaymorning #myhappylife #orientalblossom #blossomflowers #folkartflowers #folkartinspired #folkartflorals #decoart #photoboardshq #handpaintedalways #acrylicpainter #acrylicpaintersofinstagram #creativity_love #instacreative #creativesofinstagram #selfcaresunday
Happy Sunday✨ We’ve made no plans for today so if the weather is nice we’re going to be spending the day in the garden. The boys can play and hubby is hoping to have a go at a tree that needs to be removed. We’re still working on the garden getting it ready for the boys new summerhouse and my new storage shed. I’m rapidly running out of room in my summerhouse, to the point that I almost dread going in there😝. What have you guys got planned for today? . . . #sundaymorning #sundaymornings #noplans #gardenday #homeday #lazydays #bee #bees #beehappy #myhomevibe #familydays #lifewithkids #mumofboys #mumoftwo #mumlife #craftymum #selfemployed #creativepreneur #businessmum #mumblog #mumssupportingmums #mumsinbusiness #mycreativelife #createmakeshare #creatingmemories #margaretcochranegifts
It's Sunday and I must say this is deceptive - I am not in the workshop, I am actually learning to Ski - see my Instagram stories. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This pic is from last week, myself piercing away at a deer ring. It's in silver, it's part etched to create the surface pattern - this is what the blue film on the silver sheet is for - to act as a mask for the areas we don't want etching. The deer is then pierced (cut) out with a saw blade that is only a couple of mm thick to ensure all the details of the deer and ferns are retained.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I like piercing, it's a satisfying feeling cutting through something as hard and strong as metal with something so fine and delicate.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #behindthescenes #intheworkshop #thejoyofmaking #amorajoyas #handmadejewellery #madebyhand #silverjewellery #madenotmanufactured #shopsmall #itsallinthedetail #inspiredbyart #inspiredbynature #mycreativelife #madeinlincoln #madeinlincolnshire #silverjewelry
So let’s continue with circles as they always have played a big part in my own art pieces—-Arriving to my house in Sweden and I’m waking up to the view of my favorite window. #creativelifestyle #mycreativelife #cirle #inspirationcircle #circles

The sky today was a brilliant shade of blue. It took r back to Sydney, I would see such type of sky color there with puffed up clouds ☁️ scattered here and there. Need to find this shade of blue in @copic_official various ink refills. Missing Sydney a lot today. #mycreativelife #artprints #artprints #sky #inspiration #inspirationforart #inspire #colorpallete #nature #singapore #singaporeart #singaporeartist #expatlivingsg #moodboards #painting
Dappled sunshine, a bunch o'blooms and a pretty townhouse. MATE. I could have claimed squatters rights if I'd posed in this gorgeous doorway any longer. Also, can we appreciate the colour pop purple and turquoise combo please?! Bringing colourful sunshine to my life!
Ogni tanto qualche intoppo capita! Niente di grave ma oggi non sarò in Ghiaia a Parma, niente Bio&Natura😔 • Ma non scoraggiamoci, facciamo come se fosse una bancarella virtuale: voi arrivate qui, mi fate un saluto, io vi abbraccio e se volete vedere qualcosa mi mandate un Direct 🤗 • Anche lo shop online rimane aperto (il link è nel profilo) • #vivereapiedinudi #mercatiniapiedinudi #animaspeziata #fattoamanoapiedinudi #handmadeapiedinudi #gioiellifattiamano #handmadejewelry #lokta #indianstyle #creativitylife #gioielliecologici #zerowaste #zerowastejewelry #mycreativelife #womanaccessories #fattoconamore #fattoamano #handmadebijoux #bancarellaapiedinudi #eventiparma #parmaeventi #piazzaghiaia
Qui lo chiamano "Iddu", il vulcano sopra le nostre teste. In questi giorni lo abbiamo sentito parlare, fumare nuvole nere, abbiamo sentito la sua energia sotto i piedi e nell'aria. Oggi lo salutiamo e lo ringraziamo per averci accolto anche quest'anno. È stato magico ❤️ #stromboliartretreat . . Grazie a Giulia Romano per la foto
Change the world, GIRL 💪🏼 As soon as I saw this, I knew it was the best affirmation to look at everyday. Being a visual journalist, we were told to take photos that change peoples lives. With Arbonne, our goal is to change peoples lives whether it’s to loose weight, clear up their acne, get rid of wrinkles, get healthier, eat cleaner, make more money, make more time to spend with their children, get time freedom for their real passion instead of a 9-5 that’s not what they wanna actually do but get by, but most important feel their best! I’m all about that. I love helping people so much and blessed I have this company that does just that. Life’s toooooo short to just “get by” with your job you hate. Do something that you love. Does helping people feel their best make you feel good? GET paid for it and change the world! 🥂

Hej. Dzień dobry. Cześć 🖐🖑 Jest dość wcześnie. Z resztą jak zawsze, gdy do Was piszę. Ale ja naprawdę lubię wstawać tak rano. Lubię cichaczem skradać się po mieszkaniu, tak by nie pobudzić reszty domowników. Zakładam ciepłe skarpety, robię sobie coś do picia i powoli rozkręcam tę machinę życia. Wolę to niż poranna gonitwę i walkę z czasem 😉 no ale każdy lubi coś innego 😊 A dziś najważniejsze jest to, ze mamy ważne święto. Święto wszystkich Mam. Jakoś nie lubię tej oficjalnej nazwy "Dzień Matki" i jak tylko mogę zamieniam na "Dzień Mamy". Pewnie większość z Was już przygotowała jakieś smakołyki i będzie oczekiwała gości 😁 u mnie jeszcze nie ten etap. Jeszcze ja chodzę w gościnę, a dla Mamy zrobiłam taki wianuszek na drzwi. Zdrówka życzę wszystkim Mamom i całej reszcie też 🤗 ___________________________________________________ #bziki_moniki #recznarobota #rekodzieło #recznie #handcrafted #handmadehome #handmade #diygifts #diyhome #wianeknadrzwi #wianuszek #wieniec #kwiaty #instaart #instafoto #artcraft #art #artist #kochamtocorobie #dzieńmatki #pasjatworzenia #mycreativelife #mama #rekodzielo_pl #handmadewithlove #handmadewithpassion #passion #kochamtocorobie#flowers #flowerstagram

Did you know that I was a high school dropout? 😮 ⠀ ⠀ It’s true! High school was rough for me and I hated every second of it. I loved the work and I loved learning, but I began skipping classes A LOT, and decided to drop myself out at 17. I have since finished my remaining credits to achieve a diploma, and finished 2 programs with 2 different colleges in my early 20’s, all while building a successful 6 figure business and working full time at a day job! ⠀ ⠀ I now have certifications in Office Administration and Website Design. ⠀ ⠀ At 17, when I left school and felt like a failure, I never thought I would be where I am now but life has a funny way of working out. And honestly, I wouldn’t change my journey for anything. At 33, I can now say that I am the best version of my myself and I am proud of everything I have accomplished. ⠀ ⠀ Never give up on your goals and keep reaching for the stars! 💫 ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #bossbabetribe #ladypreneur #makeitblissful #findyourtribe #dreamersanddoers #womenceo #babeswhohustle #womenwhohustle #bossladymindset #mindsetmatters #fempire #risingtidesociety #mindsetshift #livingmybestlife #createyourlife #beingboss #solopreneur #womenentrepreneurs #createdaily #creativehappylife #mindsetcoach #entrepreneurquotes #nevergiveup #fempreneurs #mycreativelife
You are the Sun 12x16 mixed media on paper . A definite favourite so far! But who knows I may change my mind tomorrow 🤷🏻‍♀️ . . . .
Throwback to the work all summer - no running water- grow your own food way of life. Tractors have a ton of character and personality. #photography #mycreativelife #tractor #farmlife #farm #alberta
You guys! This was my office about a year ago. Working cross-legged the floor, laptop on the couch, while June played next to me. 👶⠀ ⠀ I can't describe how difficult it was to work in snatches of ten-minutes here and there. Or how rewarding it was to be building my business while raising my babies. ⠀ ⠀ Just a year on and my business has grown and changed so much. Most days I'm grateful for daycare but some days I miss my cheeky little office mate.⠀ ⠀ If you're in a similar juggle right now I see you. This phase will pass. Lower your expectations of what is possible (clean house? PAH! Home cooked meals? Yah right!) and get help where you can.⠀ ⠀ 🤛 You're rockin' it. Keep going!

Painting my boyfriend from real life while he was marking assignments (he's a science teacher). He kept moving his face (not his fault that he is alive, very grateful that he is) so I am glad I was able to do something that kind of looked like him :) - I used a paintbrush that contained water in its tummy with acrylics. There was some muddying of colours as the brush could never be cleaned completely but it was still pleasant to use. I will keep using this in the future if I need to travel and paint :) - #artist #illustrator #instaartist #artistsoninstagram #doitfortheprocess #carveouttimeforart #paintpaintpaint #painting #artjournalling #sketchbook #drawnbyhand #creativelife #illustagram #illustrationsofinstagram #illustrationartist #mycreativelife #artoftheday #workinprogress #face #portrait #illustratorsoninstagram #illustration #drawing #artistsoninstagram
Trying to get it right. Sketch for another 6x8” in the revamped wildlife series. There will be texture on the mountains and the pine trees in front of them... but it’s missing something. Any ideas? #notquite #sketch #creativeideas
Even tiny nooks need a little colour and whimsy...especially on grey rainy days like today ⛈ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In typical Toronto style, our tiny apartment is filled with many tiny nooks...I’ve made it my mission to fill all of them with pretty things...much to the chagrin of my husband 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is one of my favourite nooks, just near our entrance way. Sometimes life is about the little things...like delicate ferns, happy Gerber Daisies, and slivers of sunlight 🌸🌿🌞 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you have a favourite nook in your house?
We chase and we cling and in clinging we are lost and find suffering. Just like a butterfly caught and cupped in our hands, it’s beauty is out of sight. Sometimes to see such beauty we need to set free whatever it is we are holding on to so tightly. What do you need to let go of today in order to find the beauty in it?
We had so much fun at Art in the Park today 🌞. This will be our show gig through October so if you’re coming up the mountain for the market, stop by and see us!

Quest’anno mi è stato affidato il compito importante del regalo per le maestre...un saluto speciale perché finisce un ciclo di 5 anni per mio figlio Michele e tutti i suoi compagni di classe alle elementari, tra l’altro una classe a cui sono molto affezionata come bambini perché li conosco tutti molto bene... Abbiamo creato un regalo totalmente “Handmade”...i bambini hanno fatto i cuori con le stampe, ci sono tutte le loro impronte e dietro le loro firme...io invece ho lavorato sul disegno in caricatura della classe, ogni bambino dimostra il suo proprio interesse che gli sta più a cuore, così le maestre possono ricordarli come dei bambini positivi e pieno di sogni. Un mio canovaccio stampato abbinato con il colore del cuore...ogni maestra la sua... • Un progetto che ho fatto volentieri con tutta la mia passione e ringrazio tutti che si sono fidati di me! Ieri sera alla consegna mi ha portato tantissima soddisfazione... Fare queste cose...questo sì, che è il mio mondo...❤️❤️❤️ • My son Mickey is coming to the end of his 5 years in elementary school and I was asked to work on the present for the teachers. A completely handmade project...the kids made a heart decoration with all their fingerprints and their signatures on it...I did a caricature drawing of the whole class, almost like a photo where every kid is showing what they love to do most...their sport, their hobby or interest...Together with this, my “flower pot” tea towel matching the color of the heart to go with each present for each teacher... • It was such a pleasure last night at the dinner when the presents were consigned...the teachers warmed my heart when they all told me that they’ve received many wonderful presents over the years, but never have they received anything so particular and original, something that truly came from the heart... Passion is what it’s all about...❤️❤️ #passion #handmade #teacherspresents #regalospeciale #specialgifts #drawing #sketches #mycreativelife #monikappa #disegnostilizzato #cuori #fromtheheart #specialproject #teatowels #flowerpots #ilovewhatido #special #fattoamanoconamore #creative #happyandsatisfied #lovemyjob
