Ah I totally understand Lisa. You're feeling the pull to get back to your roots. The same happened to me. I think the money thing, our limited beliefs about how artists can't make a decent living, is what holds so many of us back. 15 minutes a day is all it takes, it will add up and before you know it, you'll have a collection of art that you won't believe you found the time for. Best of luck to you my friend. Keep me posted on your creative journey! xo
I feel ya girl! It wasn't until I was laid off from my full-time job that I was able to really dig in and make stuff happen. I never would have quit because I needed financial security, but life made the decision for me with unemployment checks to keep me afloat. Your art is beautiful Pooja! Please stick with it, 15 minutes a day is all you need. Best of luck to you my friend. Keep me posted! xo

Working: on my art! I finally got over my creative slump and now our dining table looks like the aftermath of an art supply hurricane. It took me almost a year (wow) to really narrow down my focus and decide on a theme for my shop. Some things just take time I suppose. I'm aiming for an Etsy grand opening by the start of the new year. Yikes, did I just say that? Now that it's in writing means I actually have to do it!

Whether you believe you can or can’t, you’re right. - Henry Ford One of our most overlooked superpowers is the ability to transform our world with our beliefs. A belief is defined as something we personally choose to accept as truth based on information we have collected throughout our lives. Take the phenomenon of the placebo effect for example. This fascinating NPR video on milkshakes shows us how a nutritional label is just "a belief in tiny writing." Beliefs can fool our physical bodies! For years, scientists thought the placebo effect was just a figment of the imagination. But research... Continue reading

I know, I've never heard of such a treat before creating this post! Can't wait to try them :) xo
It was so much fun. Hard part is going through WAY too many photos and selecting which ones I want to blog... as you know from your travels! xo
Me too, that has always been a dream of mine! xo
My folks stayed in this one and my brother's family stayed in an Airstream! Hal and I were in a tent, ha. I wish there were more companies like this around the U.S.!

Ain't she a doll? When we went camping a few weeks ago, my family rented Country Rose, aka Pinky, from Vintage Island Vacations, a company that rents out Airstreams and Canned Hams to Orcas Island campers, delivering them before you arrive to your desired campsite. The concept is brilliant really - no need to own, store, haul or clean. Country Rose is the cutest little 1960 Aloha, rivaling the pink hotel room we stayed in at the Madonna Inn last year. My 2-year old niece was in heaven! Inside was everything you'd need to feel comfy, a feather duvet on... Continue reading

Thank you Renee! Yep, I hand-lettered them. Then scanned and turned them into vector images so the bride could re-size them for her wedding signs :) xo
Isn't it the cutest theme? So original and so perfect for the couple :) Thanks Annie! xo
Let me know if you want to learn Katy! With a little practice, it's pretty easy.. and very therapeutic :) xo
Cheryl, your comment just made my entire week! Thank you my friend! It's so nice to know that what I'm sharing actually matters :) xo

You guys, how is it already fall? It really snuck up on me this year. But no complaints - like many of you, it's my favorite season of all. We're having a brilliant October here in the Northwest. Sandals and SPF during the day, warm socks and hot casseroles at night. In the coming weeks, I'm really looking forward to pumpkin scouting, costume hunting and cozying up in front of the fire! Here are four things that get me excited to celebrate Autumn's arrival... Apple Cider Caramels Recipe We Love You Fall Print Orange Wool Blanket Coat Pumpkin Chai Latte... Continue reading

Oh thank you Crystal! If you want to learn, I'd definitely recommend Molly Jacques' Skillshare class - that's how I started: http://www.happinessisblog.com/happiness-is/2013/11/learning-calligraphy.html
Glad you like the round-up Allie! I'm surprised it took me so long to focus on mountains. They're so inspiring! xo
