Day 15 of My 30 Days of Creativity Challenge. This past year has allowed me to slow down, see what’s important, and who is important. I’ve spent a lot of time with my daughter this past year, not that I didn’t before because we do almost everything together. For those of you that don’t know, …

Day 9 of my 30 Days of Creativity Challenge! Short and sweet today because it’s my weekend to work. It’s so fun to collage in my journal. I realize my theme today centered around not being afraid, about having the courage to be unapologetically yourself. Up until recently, I’ve had some imposter syndrome when it …

Day 7 of My 30 Days of Creativity Challenge. I love journaling! I’ve kept a journal since I was a small girl, always writing, doodling, documenting, drawing … It’s amazing how much my writing and even my art has transformed since I’ve been keeping one.
