Manifesting a New Money Mindset

Manifesting a New Money Mindset

We could be racking up promotion after promotion. We could be paid $10,000 a month to be making someone else rich. We know that we are masters of our craft, the ultimate professional and a highly valued employee. We are sure that we could “BossUp” and have our own kick ass company but something inside […]

Trust Your Soul to Know the Way

Trust Your Soul to Know the Way

As a Creator of Self, too often we look for a mystical sign to point us to our destiny or we look for the new novel idea that will get us to where we want to be fast…..but we overlook the truth. It sounds too simple. Too straightforward. Too sane.

Manifesting Everyday Wisdom: Perspective determines your reality

Manifesting Everyday Wisdom: Perspective determines your reality

Perspective determines what you see. What you see is your story in both photography and real life. I was with my photography group, we were in a parking lot, taking photos of motion and blur. My critical eye was searching for something pretty to capture. Everything was just so ……blah. I went to the far […]

Manifesting Me: with Etsy

Manifesting Me: with Etsy

I was excitedly telling my husband about a project that I was thinking about doing, when he burst out, “Its HARD being married to an artist….EVERYTHING is an art project!” We both cracked up laughing….but he’s so right! Every corner of my house, is designed in my head until the day I can make it […]

Manifesting everyday wisdom: Beauty in the Shadows

Manifesting everyday wisdom: Beauty in the Shadows

Wisdom is often found amidst the joys, heartbreaks and mundane of everyday life…. A friend and I went out taking photos. As we were walking through Washington Park, Springfield, IL…..I saw this picture. Through the deep recesses of a low bush, I could see the colorful azaleas’ vibrant color calling to be noticed from the […]

Manifesting Focus

Manifesting Focus

A friend and I were recently talking and we found that we’re both thinking about writing a book. I shared that I was looking to start work on my book in 2019. She looked at me curiously and asked, “What are you waiting for? Why don’t you do it now?” I replied, “I already have […]

Manifesting Everyday Wisdom: Family isn’t just bipedal

Manifesting Everyday Wisdom: Family isn’t just bipedal

Wisdom can be found in the mundane moments, all we must do is recognize and hear the messages. My beautiful dog, watching the freezing rain of a midwestern winter. Listening to the tiny pellets bounce off of the window pane. There is something very simply pure in being loved by an animal. They also can’t […]

Manifesting Activism

Manifesting Activism

I always wonder if my protest pictures should be shared on my website and social media. I second guess myself about if my causes align with my “brand”. I ask myself, will I offend any of my customers or readers? Does activism and protests somehow detract from my message to be yourself, strip away all […]

Manifesting everyday wisdom: The Laughing Orchid

Manifesting everyday wisdom: The Laughing Orchid

Everyday wisdom is a gift that can come to us from the most simple of moments. I was on my own, taking pics at a local hothouse when I was struck by some “everyday wisdom”. I was scanning for a good composition, then I turned and the face of this orchid jumped out at me. […]

EVERYONE asks me what kind of camera I use!

I constantly get asked by amateur and professional photographers alike what kind of camera I use and I’m happy to tell everyone who is looking for a good beginner camera because I absolutely love it! I love it so much that I bought it twice! As an example of the kind of images that my […]

In My World

In My World

Digging through some of my old poetry…….enjoy. In My World I live in a land stripped of God’s inspiration and glory Stone, metal and man orate their own story In my world, my senses are all polluted The rich wine of spirit, heart and mind diluted Does HE cry for our lost land? Or is […]

Manifesting Forgiveness

Manifesting Forgiveness

Every year spring bursts upon the scene with a song of life, renewal and resurrection. When the earth awakens beneath a cold blanket of snow, doesn’t  your heart yearn to do the same? Like the passing of the years, our hearts go through seasons as well. Like the bud of a spring flower, your heart […]

Photo by Vladislav Muslakov on Unsplash Digging through some of my old poetry…….enjoy. Solo Sleepy time…half dreams and you are by my side. White sheets….my cheek pressed upon the muscled warmth of your back. Eyes slit open….the curve of my lips fade. Caressing hand falling through empty air. Tears slide into the midnight river of […]

New Painting – The Cycles of Inanna

New Painting – The Cycles of Inanna

Life is magical in that when we are in the flow, often what we are ready for just appears. I created this blog in order to share my creativity. However, I noticed that I only made 7 posts in 2017 and as I planned for 2018, I committed to being more active in creating and […]

The Escalation

The Escalation

The Escalation If a cold criticism can be contained for a minute, Compassion can live for an hour. If a lie can be withheld for an hour, Honest men can be made for a day. If rage can be reigned in for a day, Reconciliation can reside for a week. To restrain for a week, […]

Manifesting Self-reflection

Manifesting Self-reflection

I don’t know about you, but just “being” isn’t enough for me. One of my core values is intentional growth. I have to strive to be my best and true self. To grow, to learn, to evolve, to have pride of character and to touch the lives of others and inspire them to the same. […]

Manifesting Solidarity

“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a […]

Digging through some of my old poetry…….enjoy. The Great Rift “I knew that I would love you since the moment that I saw you. I didn’t know your name but I knew that I had to know you. I didn’t know every experience that shaped you but I knew your essence like I know the […]

Manifesting Vicegerency

Manifesting Vicegerency

With the anniversary of the “Women’s March” here, I really wanted to talk about vicegerency. I love the word “vicegerency”. It sounds so antiquated, maybe biblical, definitely regal, like I bear the weight of a crown or a kingdom upon my shoulders. Maybe I do. Maybe you do. Maybe we do. When you google the definition […]

Manifesting everyday wisdom: Water Tower Woes

Manifesting everyday wisdom: Water Tower Woes

Inspiration and wisdom are part of our everyday life….we just have to hear the whispers. I was taking a lunch break and looked up to the sky. The massive clouds seemed as if they were going to engulf everything before it. For a moment, I thought, if a water tower could feel, I think I […]

Manifest 2018, what does the new year demand of you?

Manifest 2018, what does the new year demand of you?

I haven’t set a New Year’s resolution in like…a decade. I’m one of THOSE people that wake up chipper and bright, knowing that each day is a chance to plan, do and be a better, more excellent version of myself than I was yesterday. I awaken, excited to dive into each day expectant to see […]

Manifest a Christmas Miracle

Manifest a Christmas Miracle

I love Christmas time. The extra effort that goes into the festive decorations at the mall, the jolly music that makes me jiggle and giggle down the grocery aisle, a parent’s doting gaze as wonder spreads across their child’s face as the Christmas tree on Main Street is lit, the love that still sparks under […]

Manifest some “effing” fun

Manifest some “effing” fun

I was excitedly telling a friend about my long weekend that I spent writing. I finally finished a post for my blog that I’ve been procrastinating over, thus getting over my writers block and drafting 6 weeks’ worth of material! I heard myself talking as if I were outside my body and I exclaimed in […]

DIY-Weathered wood picture frames

DIY-Weathered wood picture frames

We bought our new house last year and I envisioned immediately how I wanted every room to look. I knew the house needed some work but I wasn’t prepared for how much. The projects soon became overwhelming and I didn’t know where to start. I wanted to design a dining room built in but we […]

Pretty. Just Pretty?

Pretty. Just Pretty?

I was an 11 year old girl, sitting on my bedroom floor, face to face with my reflection on the mirror of my closet door. My sketchbook was balanced on my knee, my charcoal pencil poised to catalogue the features of my face as I attempted my self-portrait. Who am I? I drew my heart shaped […]

Hello, world!

Hello, world!

As we begin a new year I decided to give myself a gift. I have been toying with the idea and design of this blog for the past year. No more procrastination and perfection paralysis for this lady….it’s time to jump in! If you knew me, that’s huuuge!

The last time that I saw someone leaping blindly, it was….
