Hello friends! Something that I’m hearing over and over again is that we can’t seem to find the time to organize our creative spaces much less actually make stuff in them. And that’s a shame, don’t ya think? This thing that’s so important to us and yet we never actually get around to doing it. I […]
Hello friends! I can’t believe I’ve been at this blogging thing for a little over a year now. Crazy. I can’t even begin to wrap my head around it. It feels like just yesterday that I purchased my domain and hosting and decided that I was ready to take my blog and business to the next […]
I know I’ve mentioned before that I still work basically full-time. 30-40 hours a week. Yep, and I do some freelance writing as well. I know, I know. I’m crazy. Obviously, I love what I do, though. When you start blogging, you work for months or even years for free or basically free. I mean, […]
Blogging is a tough job, especially these days. It’s over-saturated, which makes it hard to separate yourself from everyone else. And without being different, you don’t stand a chance.

Because […]

These are just a few of the things that might be standing between you and actually doing something creative. We all make mistakes when it comes to scheduling our creative time. I mean, c’mon. […]
It’s definitely been a while since I’ve actually created anything. You see, I’m a mama now and of course that means things are even more crazy around here than what they were before. Oh, and did I mention that I work full-time too? And then of course there’s the never-ending housework that seems to always need done. So much to do and so little time, you know?
I wouldn’t wish years of struggling to get pregnant on anyone – not even my worst enemy. It’s a horrible feeling to want something so badly and yet not be able to have it. It’s a painstaking process of broken dreams, doctor’s appointments, unanswered questions, and saving money. All the while never really knowing what […]
