The winter blues... I have a dear sister friend on my heart today, who lives too many states away. I have been isolating myself during waves of vulnerability and emotional turmoil, as I tend to do. I’m praying this morning for the courage to face relationships and take care of myself through the preciousness of friendship 🦉🦉

This is one of my all-time favorite little paintings. . Honestly, I’m not totally sure what about it has my heart, but it does. I think it’s the richness of the pencil patch on the left, the feathery texture of the watercolor at the top right.... maybe the fierce strength of the purple/red combo in cooperation with the strong but peaceful blue and the little bit of gold and white bits for some razzle-dazzle.... . It reminds me of the @brenebrown quote from Braving The Wilderness: “Strong back, soft front, wild heart”. . I almost sold it, in a momentary lapse of awareness, but thankfully the purchase never happened. Now it sits in my little pile of personal favorites that will one day make it to the gallery wall in my living room. . I’m wondering though, if this little guy should be made into prints available for purchase. (I love offering prints because they can also be blown up bigger. 😏😏) What do you think?? . Also, happy Sunday, folks! ☕️📚🥐🥂

Thought I’d share a finished shot of that #tombowdualbrushpens piece I shared a video of the other week! 😍 The colors feel very icy to me, which seems fitting since I am a human icicle right now after going outside in this cold (for those that aren’t on the east coast, the northeast is covered in snow, and while we don’t have snow in MD...it’s like 10° F outside and super windy 🌬)

I am in full nesting mode at the moment. I’m 33 weeks pregnant but also faced with the possibility of an early induction, we have to see what the doctor says in my appointment today. I spent the start of 2019 cleaning, gardening, painting, drilling, making, decluttering, looking for ethically made baby clothes, reading, cooking, relaxing, writing lists and considering what my life might be like in a few months time. I’m sure there is nothing I can truly do to prepare me for the huge change that is about to occur in my life but I do know that I am going to embrace and surrender over to this new adventure! I’ve discovered @use_ta for preloved children’s clothing and gotten so many wonderful things from there. The op shop has also been amazing. There were so many times when I wanted to buy things! But after a little bit of research I’ve been able to save money and lessen my impact and consumption. We’re going to be using cloth nappies and even getting some preloved nappies has saved me over $300! Please send me your favourite ethical baby choices! We’re going to be holding a whole month of sustainability workshops at @thinkthornbury in February. (My little March baby might even be here early to see @petalplum and join in on her amazing classes! 😂) I guess this is my first lesson in the unpredictability of having a child. I’ve been listening to a lot of the @australianbirthstories podcast and gravitating to the ‘I planned a natural birth BUT....’ stories in an attempt to mentally prepare for whatever outcome I’m faced with. Listening to other women share their stories has probably been one of best ways I could try and prepare myself for the birth. I taught my first macrame class for 2019 and my last class before I become a mum on Sunday and it reminded me to have confidence and trust in my own abilities. I’m sure this new little person will have a lot to teach me and I’m excited to share everything I know with them too. Much Love, Maggie May

emily.jean.benito. Are you the type of person who knew exactly what you wanted to do sinc

Are you the type of person who knew exactly what you wanted to do since you were a kid? Or are you still trying to figure things out? For me, becoming an entrepreneur in my 40’s was never the plan. I was financially “comfortable”, I had been in my industry for 20 years, and I figured this is where I’d end up retiring one day. Benefits, paid time off, all the things we’re told comes with a “good job”. . But if I’m going to be totally honest, I got all my value from my career. You see, I was a lousy student my whole life, but I was a rockstar employee. I climbed that ladder quickly and was pretty successful. So work made me feel good, it was my biggest accomplishment. . Here’s the thing- I was great at what I did- but I wasn't my authentic self. I was great at playing the part, but playing the part is not living your best life. . Twenty years into my career, with a 2 year old and one on the way- I discovered Young Living essential oils. We were always sick and I was desperate. Well this box of oils totally transformed our lives and I ended up falling in love with the company and our new lifestyle. So much so, that I decided to make a career out of it! The universe was listening; on October 16th, 2017 I was laid off. YIKES! Careful what you wish for! Or at least make sure it’s what you really want! . The first year was a total culture shock, no set schedules, days running into each other. Trying to figure this whole “work for yourself” thing. . But I can say the best part of it is the FREEDOM. I still hustle my booty off- but its for our dreams and goals. Every day is different and so many hats are worn as an entrepreneur; I’m always learning, growing, and stretching myself. I have cried and wanted to give up. But I always catch myself- because today my dreams are WAY BIGGER than my fears. . So tell me…Is there a part of you that thinks “I’m made for bigger things than this?” . #SavvyBusinessOwner #WomenWhoHustle #MyCreativeBiz #CreativeHappyLife #CalledToBeCreative #MyOwnBoss #TNChustler #TheEveryDayGirl #creativeentrepreneur #MakersGonnaMake #TCCTribe #WomenInBusiness

Here’s the thing about ethical fashion brands: while the market is flourishing, it’s still competing with a fast fashion landscape. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So how do you stand out amongst the cheaper brands that entice and persuade with an ultra low price point? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How do you get your dream customer to stop buying 5 cheap tops, and purchase just one of your organic cotton tees for a premium price? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You need to hone in on 6 core brand voice attributes to share your message — that’s how! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Find out what these are in my latest blog post. Link in my bio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸 @bayouwithlove, who make their jewellery from melted down computer software.

“I see gumdrops!” “I see rainbow mountains!” I love hearing what kids see in my paintings. It brings me so much joy to see their faces light up with excitement. My 2 large commissions are almost finished, and soon I will be starting some smaller projects including one to add to my Pacific Northwest series. Got any ideas? Let me know! Would love to hear from you😊 #acrylicpainting #bigsur #creativehappylife #bayareaartist #juliapfeiffer #pacificnorthwest #intuitivepainting #bigsurart

I’m trying to get better at working in stages. Layering paint. Being patient. Intentionally deciding what I want to do next... it’s freaking hard 😂 Back in school bc I only had short classes & worked mostly with oils I was forced to work slowly in stages. I imagined getting back into art as relaxing & natural. IT’S NOT. I have to work through some things & build skills again. But I love it. (Thanks Mom for helping me get back into it😘) So here’s to layer 2 of this bowl I have no idea how I’ll finish 😂🙃🥂! • • #creativehappylife #utahartist #utahphotographer #utahvalleyphotographer #peoplescreative #utahart #doitfortheprocess #calledtobecreative #creativelife #artistspace #artforthesoul #createdtocreate #makersgonnamake #livecreatively #alcoholinkartist

And here she is! This one was huuuge guys 😳 When you paint by hand, this is seriously no joke. Lots of paint strokes and plenty of love go into something like this.. and it’s always so special to hand them off to you after that! It helps when it’s such a beautiful wedding song too! 😍
