I did that recently too! With maple leaves. We live in such a beautiful place, don't we? :) xo

Ha, this is me in a nutshell. Trying out new hobbies that I truly think are going to be my thing. Then finding out.. eh, not so much. That is the cutest little pepper I've ever seen!

Oh I've been wanting to go here for the longest time! Love your images. And that engagement shoot. I've seen a few others, it's the hip spot to get them done it seems!

Wasn't it? I hope we do it every year from here on out! ;)
Thanks Heather! Where are your favorite spots to go camping?
I'm so glad we did this :) Oh and I have to send you all the self-timer family shots! They're pretty goofy. Thought I'd save you the embarrassment by not posting them on the blog!
I hadn't gone camping in FOREVER! I hope you and your adorable fam will get a chance to go soon. Except you'll probably need to wait a few years since you'll be giving birth in the near future! When are you due? xo
Yes, I love Skillshare too! Took a few calligraphy courses and one on pattern design! I think I'm obsessed with learning :) xo

Vanessa, it is fabulous! I love that you have so many types of art to choose from, photography, prints, jewelry, housewares. That really resonates with me, since I'm a fellow multi-passionate. Bravo for opening a shop with your own domain! I've been reading about how important that is for branding. I hope to do the same. Thanks for offering your help and advice.. I may be coming to you for questions soon! xo

I have the fondest memories camping with my family as a child. My folks took my brother and I all over the Pacific Northwest in a tiny old truck camper. Singing songs around the fire, playing Cribbage with the grandparents and learning to ride our bikes with no hands. 20-some years later, now that my brother and I are both married, and my niece is two, we decided it was time to air out the old sleeping bags and go camping together once again. This time around, we arrive by motorcycle! My brother was kind enough to haul our camping... Continue reading

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
