I know i haven't posted in a while.
Life has been drowning me for a while.
I have been sick.
Physically and Emotionally.
Life is about ebb and flow.
And i am trying to sail between the two of those.
While still having faith it will. get. better. soon.

I see the light at the end of the tunnel.
It may even have a cupcake at the end of it.
I have faith and hope, and trust that I will feel better soon.
Everyday helps.
Even when it doesn't.

I hope you are all well.
Are having a lovely holiday season.
Stay healthy!
Stay optimistic!
And be patient.
Life is unfolding as we speak.

It is and will be glorious!

Glorious Atomic Bazaar! Glorious weekend!

I had an art show in Sarasota this weekend called Atomic Bazaar. I got the privilege to stay with my friend Chip and bring my friend Lindsey to help me. I express HOW imperative it was to have a weekend away from Orlando. It was good for my soul, my heart, and my business.

I have the best friends ever. I really really appreciate the two of you so much. I appreciate all the amazing people i met at the show. [[I'll post another post about all of them!!]]

Let's just say i was really blessed. I had amazing encouragement, more sales then i realized, and lots of love from friends and strangers.
I hope you all get the chance MANY MANY TIMES to feel the love i have felt. I really do.

Blessings to all of you.

life lessons for today.

These are mine.
What are yours?

much love,

My being.

Every being of my body wants to be okay.
To be healthy.
But knows i'm not.

Every being of my soul wants to body and mind to know it's okay.
It's okay i don't have it figured out.
It's okay that it's taking longer then expected.
Longer then expected to heal.
To be healthy.

Every being of my mind wishes it could just concentrate.
Keep on trucking.
Be motivated 'like before.'

But every being of my heart knows that i have to give it time.
Need to let my body heal inside out.
That i am very blessed to have friends, support, and doctors to help me.

The confidence will come as the healing continues.
The healing will continue as i give myself time.
Time to breathe.
Time to grow.
Time to turn into the person I'm supposed to be.

The person i've wanted to be all along.

The Creative Empire

I recently joined the brand-spankn' new community, the creative empire. It is AMAZING! I was lucky enough to join this community while they were still in their testing/trial phase. From the get-go this community has been informative, supportive, friendly...every thing small business owners like us need from an online community! The official launch of the creative empire is TOMORROW...I can only imagine how much more exciting and amazing this community will be as it grows.

If you are a small business owner trying to 'do it all', this community is for you! Help, advice, support, all from people who have been and are currently in the same boat as you.

Go, go! Check it out HERE!

Letting Go.

Hello friends!

Long time no visit...

I've been taking time to grow, create, heal, and in doing that [in real life] i have been taking a blog-cation.

It's been amazing, and reviving. I've reconnected with people. I've tried new foods. I've...slept. I promise to start posting again soon.

I hope you are living a glorious life!
Smiles to you!!

Foodie Friday: Operation: Waffles

My friend Courtney and I were in the mood the mood to make waffles from scratch. We used pancake batter and spread it inside the waffle maker.

Which...apparently there are some "special tricks" since our batter didn't seem to want to be INSIDE the waffle maker.

Eventually we did make some pretty "perfect" waffles.

Although...the 1st [broken] one, browned even more and had more waffle attributes we like, we still enjoyed our almost perfect whole waffles. :D

What fun cooking adventures have YOU gone on?

Anything come out FAB? Any flubs?

I'd LOVE to hear about it!

Have a creative, delicious day!

One Year Ago today...

was a really complicated day actually....

i'm very thankful that hearts have the ability to heal...
....and even sprout over time.
that we, as humans, are able to forgive; ourselves and others.
that things WILL get better.
that each time something unexpected happens...
that we DO heal.
that other things BLOOM.

Until all of those things happen though...
thank goodness for THIS math problem!

Thank you to ALLLLLL of those who have helped me heal, and loved me; even on my worst hour. It's been a roller coaster of a year and i'm so incredible blessed to have the support system i've had over the last 365 days. [and still do!]

I'm always incredibly amazed that people really love me. [even when i forget they do]. God is good, and keeps reminding me!! [over...and over....]

I am loved.
and SO. ARE. YOU!

Have a lovely Sunday,

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

Foodie Friday - Home Made Brusetta

My friends came over on Tuesday night for craft/cooking night. We made fresh brusettta. Twas delicious!


French Bread
Cherry Tomatoes
Mozzarella cheese
Oil and Vinegar

We got our produce and cheese from Whole foods and our bread from Publix.

First cut thick slices of fresh french bread.
Dice the Mozzarella and cut the cherry tomatoes in two.
Fill the bottom of a bowl with vinegar.
Add cheese and tomatoes to the bowl of vinegar.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Spread bread slices on a cookie sheet.
Add a decent amount of the cheese/tomatoes to each slice of bread
Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the bread is crunchy and cheese is brown'd.
And ta-da! Deeelicious!
As you can see, WE really liked it! :p

What fun things have you cooked this week?

Food and Love to you dear friends!
