2019 Affirmation Statement Painting

Hello and Happy New Year!

I want to share something here that I posted on my Instagram Story the other day.

I seem to spend most of my time there and not even posting to the regular Instagram feed. I definitely need to be better about doing that and about creating new blog posts!

So, here I am sharing with you this kind of momentous thing that I did!

This is the video I posted and I saved it to my highlights, so you should follow me there and you’ll be able watch it as long as I have it up.

The painting that I did is based off of a tutorial that was posted on Instagram by artist, Amanda Evanston. You can see the tutorial in her highlights here.

What is this painting, anyway?

The essential idea is that you write positive statements about things that you want to be the truth for 2019. And then you phrase them as if they are already happening. Like one of mine is, “I write letters to my friends.” Another is, “I have sweet and easy relationships with my mom, husband and daughter.” So, you get the idea. And Amanda goes into it in detail in her highlights.

So watch this video now, it’s about 3 minutes and then go watch Amanda’s highlights and either do something like this for yourself or commission me to do it for you!!!


Okay that’s it! I challenge you to create something like this for yourself or have me do it for you!!! Let’s all start 2019 off on the best possible foot!!!

P.S. I apologize for all of the “umms!!!!”


Squarespace Sales Page Created!

I just created a new page on my site dedicated to Squarespace Website Design. Here is a cool screenshot of the page.


I absolutely LOVE seeing pages from Squarespace laid out this way. You really get a great perspective of the design and layout.

Also, I’m a Squarespace Circle Member, which means that anyone I design a site for gets 20% off of their first annual payment to Squarespace + we have a free six-months trial period as opposed to the typical two-weeks everyone else gets (not that we’ll need it, of course!!!).

Finally! A Nose Piercing Story

Finally! A Nose Piercing Story

Notice anything different about me????

When I was 19 years old I wanted to get my nose pierced. Like really bad.

This was 31 years ago and no one I knew had a nose piercing and they weren’t very popular at all, but I had known a couple of women that had them and I LOVED the look of them.

When I told the guy I was doing that I wanted a nose piercing he said, “you’re too pretty to get your nose pierced.”

What the hell does that even mean??? Did he think only ugly people had their noses pierced? I

Why I Should Never Get Dressed

Why I Should Never Get Dressed

Six days ago I did something absolutely DEVASTATING to me. I inadvertently deleted the WRONG Instagram account!  I meant to delete my Maker account and instead I deleted the account that I've had for years that had all of my followers and photos. 

I did everything I could do to get it back, but in case you weren't aware, Instagram barely exists anymore since it was bought by Facebook. There is no email you can write to or customer service at all. So, although I tried a ton of things, it was pretty apparent that it was gone for good.

Well, it turns out that it might have even been a blessing in disguise. Now the people that decide
