a drawing of flowers in a vase on a table
There was a time when I'd sit for HOURS, wishing I could figure out the whole social media thing. The more I pushed, the more tangled it all seemed to get in my head, until eventually my account was taken. Then, I just threw in the towel and stopped making anything that i felt was worthy of sharing. Remember when Instagram and Facebook were more than just endless streams of ads? Back then, they were like digital scrapbooks, a place to share the little slices of life that made each day uniqu...

🌟 Finding Magic Amidst Adversity 🌟 It's been a challenging time for me, but despite facing some big health struggles I am determined to move forward on the days when i'm feeling well enough to! I woke up one morning in November with a pathological spine fracture, and it's caused me quite a bit of pain and frustration these last several months. While I'm awaiting an official diagnosis and treatment plan, I'm leaning on positivity and creativity to keep me going. 🌈I recently had a procedur...

a drawing of a woman with flowers on her head and the words, but without all that dark we'd men see the stars
✨Ode to The Beauty of Contrast ✨ "But without the dark, we'd never see the stars." 🌌 A question that i'd love to hear your answer to: When you step back to ponder the challenges and obstacles in your life, what would you say was your most transformative dark moment that led to seeing the brightest stars? I have a decision to make in the next bit. I have been struggling to make art for the last 3 years. I feel like it's more than just a creative block. I don't seeing a purpose in it with A...
a coloring page with the words you'll never be whole
🎨 "You'll never do a whole lot unless you're brave enough to try. --Dolly Parton" True story, Mrs Parton. 🚀✨ In my case, It's more like "Of course you haven't done a whole lot lately, it's because you never finish the damn things you start, woman."

🌟 I Struggle to Let My Light Shine 🌟 I've always had a burning passion for art, but self-confidence has been my constant nemesis.

LOL Today, I am focusing on creating art for myself first, no pressure. Let's see how it goes! #ArtistConfessions #L...
