It’s so rainy today. We’re staying inside. I don’t mind though - we’re baking chocolate cake and climbing our way through a mountain of laundry. Basically, we’re snuggled in like bugs in a rug. .

Day 21: Mom time

I have to confess that I took this picture just because I was charmed by the way my pink shirt matched the strawberry smoothie I got with my last Starbucks gift card! Harmony was with a friend and Adaline decided to sleep in the car, so we swung by Starbucks for a treat.

Honestly, I get a lot of time away from the girls, partly because of my job as a guitar teacher three afternoon/evenings a week, partly because I have freelance gigs as a musician, and partly because I have a very supportive husband who is much more introverted than me and who knows that I love to go out occasionally to hear or play music at night when the girls are asleep. We are both musicians, but he is far more interested in a quiet night at home during the weekend, listening to music on Pandora. I love staying in with him, yet he knows that for me, as an extroverted, performing musician, it's also important to continue to build connections with other musicians and learn music, so I am very grateful that I have such an understanding partner!

Day 22: Extracurricular activities

Harmony is learning how to play classical guitar from me. We haven't moved very quickly, mostly because she is so small that even with the tiniest real guitar we have, it's only been recently that she could hold it correctly on her own without me actively keeping it from falling out of her lap! She is positive about learning music, but it's such a part of her life, as Chris and I talk about music, listen to music, attend live music, and play music constantly, that I'm sure she views playing an instrument as just another thing everybody does as they get older, like taking a shower or learning to read.

However, Harmony has lately been wary of performing. She had asked (of her own volition) to play guitar at our end-of-the-year homeschool co-op expo, but on the morning of the expo, she panicked suddenly and told us she was too nervous. We were fine with her not performing, of course! But she asked us to bring her guitar to the event "just in case" she changed her mind, and she did. Afterwards, I asked whether she had enjoyed it; she said that she did, but it was still scary. If performing music isn't her thing, then at least she'll still enjoy music as we learn and play and listen to it as a family, and that's totally okay!

Happy Friday! I, for one, am overjoyed this week is over. My husband and I dubbed it "hell week" because it turns out being a sick mama with 2 sick babies to take care of is just the worst. I am looking forward to a long weekend! .

Packing day! 💌📫

That day you look back and say wow, look how far I've gone. These are my origanal vagina badges that are roughly the size of my hand. I had a vision of vagina plaques as trophies for all to see and admire. Unfortunately my trophy room was never executed.

Yoga inspires me to get to know myself, to move, to connect and to create... it’s a huge part of my life, and a constant catalyst in making my paintings. I love teaching and I love what the practices teaches me. My art is a reflection of this... happy weekend you guys ✨

I’ve listed this (and a few more) botanical rainbows in my stories! If you had your eye on one send me a DM. And thank you to all the beautiful people who love these as much as I do. It really means the world to me 🌞 xx

Way too excited about this not to share! I've been collaborating with @substationpaperie the past few months to bring sweet little packaging details to all my products soon because we both believe the little things really matter. If you haven't seen her work go check it out, she's just sooo good you guys!

When I started sewing my first vaginas, I got the idea to use one to make a woman looking creature thing with antlers guarding her vagina. The title was Get Your Armor.
