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!
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 ❤️
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! 🥂
You are the Sun

A definite favourite so far! But who knows I may change my mind tomorrow 🤷🏻♀️
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 a giant dinosaur for my son's birthday party.. what are you up to this weekend? 🦖💚
The sun is finally shining bright and it feels good to be outside again! ☀️
New June color... MUSTARD!!

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...❤️❤️
