THIS WEEK I'M LOVING bright eyeshadow + the way I feel when I don't eat wheat or sugar + gently stretching past my comfort + a surprise package on my porch filled with beautiful, delightful things + taking things slowly as to not get freaked out + finally breaking through my plateau and releasing another pound.
My loves, it is Ash Wednesday.
And Valentine's Day.
And we are right on the cusp of a new moon eclipse (which happens to fall on my birthday.)
Sounds like the time for a Studio Talk if there ever was one.
I have always been captivated by St. Bernadette and the Lourdes vision. There is something so beautiful, so gentle, so fierce about it - the way the young girl doesn't know what she is seeing, but knows that she is compelled to return; the way Mary shows up again and again, revealing a little at a time about who she is, who Bernadette is.
Well, we've come to the end of this month, the Studio Love Letter went out this morning, and now it's time to round-up my favorite Instagram moments.
It's a snow day and instead of baking something (look, let's be honest, I'm not going to rule it out), I'm talking in the studio.
In this video - to which I've applied a warm vintage filter for maximum watchability - I'm explaining what I mean by Prayer Painting and Vision Painting and sharing a bit about that process; talking about an upcoming trip (Hey, West Coast, I'm looking at you!); and sharing a recent realization about how I've pretty much been waiting my whole life for someday to happen.
THIS WEEK I'M LOVING Oprah's Golden Globes speech + getting back to EFM + incredibly slow mornings + a little warm-up + Halo Top (not new to me, but I'm rediscovering it) + Beverly Hills 90210 on Hulu (Listen. It makes me feel young.)
I recently read a blog post about how the economy for artists and healers and coaches - online entrepreneurs - is changing.
It seems the old trusted ways of making money online aren't working anymore.
I have to tell you, this sent a jolt of joy through me.
As I stand here at the beginning of 2018, I am a working artist.
It's New Year's Eve, the last day of December and the last day of the year, and I'm rounding up my favorite Instagram images from the month.
I love Instagram because it's all about small moments and beauty.
THIS WEEK I'M LOVING Drinking coffee out of Christmas mugs + the released-from-time feeling of the week between Christmas Day and New Year's Eve + the TV Yule log + hotel shopping for our LA trip + my new peacock blue tuffet + relaxing my eating habits (I'm looking at you chocolate cake) then tightening them back up again.
