Lots of things in the works ready for when I return from maternity leave in April. While I play the waiting game for bubs to arrive, creating has been my go-to for keeping my mind off things.
How cute are these rounded square metallic shimmer studs?! I did a bright version of these for Spring last year and they sold like hot cakes. With these being released in April, it’ll be right in the middle of Autumn and just in time for Mother’s Day 👌🏼 🍁 #perfecttiming
DJ is getting really fast at crawling. Or pulling himself on his belly, cuz he still doesn’t use his knees! He occasionally pops up on his knees - does a quick table-top pose, and then back down on his belly.
My favourite, though, is when I go into the kitchen while he’s playing, and he comes looking for me. It’s pretty cute!!! I realize I’m one small step away from not one but TWO kids following me to the bathroom every time I pee...but for now it’s cute. #himom#ifoundyou#cutebabiesofinstagram
If I had to split myself into a bunch of glossy pages and turn into any magazine in the entire universe, the choice would be easy: I would be Mantra Magazine. 📿
Opening a new issue feels like Christmas morning. 🎁
Each thoughtful article is like a gentle nudge towards my best self. 💫
The colorful graphics and photography are a vacation for my eyes. 🧿
Every issue has within it a warm hug and the opportunity to dive deeper into what it means to live a life of intention, wellness, and abundant creativity. 💕💫
~Im so honored to have my first print-published article inside on page 16 of the current issue! 🙌🏾🥳
@mantramag is available at Target, Ralph’s, Von’s, Sprout’s, Whole Foods, Barnes and Noble (and many other markets across the nation). 💕 It hits stands everywhere this weekend! 🤗
(If you don’t see it the first time you look for it, check back the next time you’re at the market. Different stores sometimes put out new mags at different times.👌🏾—It will be on stands until March.)
Thank you for your support! And THANK YOU to @mantramagazine for having me be a contributor in this AMAZING issue!
It’s a sandy feet, messy hair kind of sunday for us. . .
Thank-you to everyone who replied to our last post. Your feedback was so interesting, I can’t thank you 🙏🏻 enough. The insta community is full of amazing people, that post reminded me of this. However the struggle to be seen is increasing hard, some of my favourite feeds just don’t come up anymore. Hopefully you get to see this one!! 👀

We are our own worst enemy. As a creative sometimes we can get in our own way. In 2019 and beyond, let’s make a promise to ourselves that there will be no more self sabotage. You ARE GOOD ENOUGH. ONLY YOU CAN STOP YOU. * * *
You guys are awesome! My last premade logo I posted sold right away and to one of my favorite small shops. Seriously it found the absolute perfect home.
Sharing another premade logo I listed last night. I love the folkart vibe of this

〰️ COMING SOON 〰️ Sometimes you’ve got it and sometimes you don’t. I’ll be honest the past few weeks I haven’t had it. .
I’ve been missing the spark and the motivation. I also haven’t been diligent in allowing myself creative time, opting instead for lazy winter activities. .
But hey, I’m gonna avoid getting bent out of shape over it. Ive had ideas swirling in my head and hopefully they’ll make it onto paper soon.
This piece got a lot of love from my insta stories & is even dreamier in person! ◒ I’m fascinated by the balance of muted tones & deep texture in art and design.
DM me for details if interested
I’m sitting on the couch writing and reading enjoying this Midwest snowstorm. ⠀
It’s in the snow that find my longing for rest answered. When there’s nowhere to go, the roads unsafe to travel I find my heart and body able to relax. The world moves on without me because it doesn’t need me to move.⠀
I am free to enjoy. Free to soak it in. Free to step back and watch it move. Today free to watch the snow fall as I enter into another’s story.⠀
What do you like to do on a snow day?⠀
(Reminder I’m doing a giveaway! Don’t forget to put your entry in. I’m drawing tomorrow night!)

When you find something you love and have passion for it they say you should know your WHY. You should know what makes you on fire for your work. Your why may change several times throughout your journey and that's okay. 😊
I often think about my WHY. What is it that drives me and motivates me to get to top?🔝 Of course my family, and my kids are a big why. Wanting to have time freedom and financial freedom is a big why. I want to travel. I want to help others achieve their greatness so they to can make their dreams come true. I want to share this gift with others, because if you give it your all the possibilities are endless. 🙌🙌
But my WHY is me, I want have something that is mine, I want to be able to say wow, look what I have accomplished, look what I can do. And I hope it doesn't sound selfish, because I'm far from it. I hope others can see it's about finding the belief in yourself to go out there and make your WHY happen! I want everyone to find what makes them happy, go find your passion and be your own hero! ❤❤❤

Oh and can, @iriscarlomusto get any flipping cuter!?!? Nope. Not possible. 🔥 .

It is my mission to create art that brings JOY and COLOUR into peoples lives. This piece is an explosion of colour and texture, and I had the most fun making it. The best part is that I found a way to use up a bunch of odds and ends. Shout out to Jim Henson, as my lifelong love of muppets may have inspired this one. 🌈✨ #novamercury
The painting on the left was the third painting I did once I discovered the subtle watercolor wash technique... this is how the wash background has changed over time! I was so focused on staying in control of the brushstrokes because watercolors felt totally out of control and wild. The painting on the right here is he result of holding my brush (and my body/mind) more loosely, more fluidly—trusting the process rather than focusing on the result... phew that letting go took a while! ☺️
