Kindred Collection #6 ~ You Choose Me

I’m sensitive, capable of opening my heart wide and sometimes letting too much out. I recently turned my heart inside-out to a friend, and bubbled over with self-judgement, and honest hurting. I probably let out too much, but I felt safe in the moment and I believe in NOT holding poison inside. When we scroll […]

Kindred Collection #5  & World Breastfeeding Week Specials

August 1-7 is World Breastfeeding Week – and August is Breastfeeding Awareness Month. I have only one true obvious photo of me breastfeeding my youngest son, and an ‘okay’ one of me nursing my eldest son. So sad. I was not in the world of BF sharing and awareness. I’m thrilled that the knowledge and […]

Kindred Collection #3 ~ Sweet Everything & Summer

Sweet summer skies, sweet nestled babe, sweet breezy feelings. This is everything. Crystal blue eyes, a cozy orange jumpsuit, translucent flowers and the relief of a downhill. This is Summer. I just returned from 6 days with 10 girlfriends in California… so much summer and so much kindness. Hiking, wading, talking, eating. All good things. […]

Kindred Collection #2 ~ Source Of Joy & New Mindful Mothering Project painting

Summer is fully swinging now, and we’ve been doing too much ~ my little family and I are hard-core homebodies, with a deep desire to be doing our thing, creating, walking, playing at home. It’s hard to explain that to others, though… to folks who like to go-go-go and want us to come along. Can […]

Kindred Collection #1 ~ Any Child

I’ve been thinking about the children being separated from their mothers at the border, I can only imagine the heart strings being ripped, the souls being tortured by separation. I pray that bonds will remain, challenged but unbroken, and that the children will very soon find their way back into their parents’ arms – what […]

Kindred Collection ~ something new is starting soon

Over the last week or so, I haven’t been able to shake the feeling that I NEED to start a new collection of mini paintings… so many collections have emerged over the years, and they are really fun.  But it IS summer, which means more mama-&-boys time and less mama-painting time… I really hope I’m […]

A LOT of stuff went ...

A LOT of stuff went away

When I’m stuck or close to a head explosion from TOO MUCH, a quick fix, for me, is to de-clutter. I adore the way I feel after I clean out a closet or a cupboard…  One day I went through my big hope chest, things I’d been saving since Kindergarten: photos, notes, haircut samples and […]

This Moment

This Moment

I’m sure you can relate: I lie in bed, tired and ‘done’ from the day, but just lying there… my mind stuck in an endless slide show of interactions, inspirations and ideas. I marvel at the crazy paths my brain takes, the thoughts it jumps between… weird.  A couple days ago I felt so drained […]
