No Backlash Backsplash

No Backlash Backsplash

Tweet It’s funny how nature’s perfection can inspire me to be courageously imperfect. Like doing my backsplash, for example. I’ve never done it before and I’m horrible and cutting straight. But when I saw things like this: It made me inspired to tackle a kitchen […]

The Secret to Success: Care Less?

The Secret to Success: Care Less?

Tweet I always believed if you work really hard and you really, really wanted something, you’ll get it. If I’m going to be honest, it’s how I’ve gotten everything I wanted or avoided what I didn’t want. It’s how I’ve accomplished the big things like […]

Love on a Monday

Love on a Monday

I’ve been busy writing these past few months. Business is booming, which is always a good thing. Look for my articles in Go Kapolei and the Star-Advertiser in the next several weeks. I’m also [*crossing my fingers] working on a few other magazines, an essay and what I hope to be a published fiction story one day. Now that I put it out there, you need to hold me to it!

In the meantime, I’ve realized the importance of prioritizing play, which explains this…

You are so loved

I know everybody has their own version and mine’s is a little on the childish scrawl version. But painting is so soothing and love? Well it’s a much needed reminder these days that it’s the most important thing.

Why You Should Never Give Up

Why You Should Never Give Up

Tweet We often hold back from our true potential out of fear. There is a small, but demanding voice that screeches at us and says, “No one cares about what you do. You’ll never be good enough. ” Like a mosquito, it buzzes in our […]

Crafty Friday: Sir Mix a Lot

Crafty Friday: Sir Mix a Lot

Since we’re still in the process of packing and unpacking, I haven’t had much of a chance to craft. But I have moved things around for a little fun. Exhibit A: The coffee table

I nabbed the napkins at a local Kailua store Kai Boutique, the flowers were from my husband. Everything else I already had except the photo in the frame. It was an iPhone picture taken of my own homemade art ala oranges and printed on our printer. The framed looked was created courtesy of my iPhone cover. In other words, completely by accident.

Forgive me, if you find that amusing at most. I really need to get back to real crafting. In the meantime, here’s an old post I did when I had more time. It’s just me putting paintbrush to canvas scared out of my wits whether it’d turn out or not. It sort of turned out like tulips. What do you think?

Floral Acrylic Painting

It was painted after another week of beautiful blooms bought for me by my husband. It’s part of my weekly splurge, a little happy pick me up and something to inspire me for the week. This week I got hydrangeas. Not sure if I can tackle them yet. But we’ll see…

When Creativity Stops

When Creativity Stops

Tweet You might have experienced a flow of creativity in the past. Ideas were popping. Creativity was flowing. And then zilch. Just like that the river’s run dry. Does this mean you pack your bags and fly toward a new career? Nope. Not quite. Like […]
