Artist Date – Botanical Gardens

As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve begun scheduling Artist Dates into my calendar each month.  For me, scheduling them ensures I make them a priority and I’m not  then inclined to move them ...

Cultivating Creativity

As you know I’ve been focusing this year on bringing creativity into my daily life.  But I’ve been feeling as though I haven’t been achieving this.  So I’ve done some investigat...

May Roundup

I’ve been a little MIA over the last couple of months.  Not all by choice but simply circumstances and, in all honesty, a little lack of planning and motivation on my part.   My day job has it’s...

Where’s the time gone?

I can’t believe it’s been 3 months already since I started the business.  Ok, it’s only 3 months but the time has flown by and I don’t feel as though I’ve achieved as mu...
