Something in my heart explodes when I see them working through the process and then walking away so proud of their work. And each one so different and unique and special and sweet, just as they are. #missionaccomplished #happybday #artists #create #creativebirthdays #weareallmadetocreate #mixedmedia

Nothing makes me more happy than hearing groups of women or girls creating and encouraging each other. πŸ˜πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸŽ‰#creativebirthdays #create #birthdayparty #thisisten

The healing power of art journaling. .
I took a leap of faith and when asked if I'd let them do a story on my workshops helping women heal from infidelity in their marriage I said ok. It's a vulnerable place to be putting this out there. But when I had to keep it quiet I remember how isolating it felt. And I want to help women know they aren't alone and they will come out of this stronger and better for it, no matter whether the marriage survives or not: .
Even doing this is a part of my own healing journey and a praise to God who truly does make beauty for ashes. .
Quoted in here is a reason for my favorite scripture - why i believe it all comes down to holding onto hope. The hope that comes not on this earth, but from the one who made you and me and is there guiding us all along the way.
.
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." - Romans 15:13. #mixedmedia #artjournaling #healingart #artistsofinstagram #betrayal #infidelity #scripture #faith #hope #lookup #everymansbattle #womeninthebattle

This girl has a story to tell. Lots of things on my drawing table today. #sketches #childrensillustrations #artistsofinstagram #glasses #vision #sketchbook #story #truth

Some Sunday art journaling inspired by the song 'I Surrender All' by Jadon Lavik. What do you need to surrender today? .
Because fear and faith can't walk hand in hand, I'm convinced it's about releasing it ALL and trusting the one who loves us so much that he gave his life for us - He will handle every little and big concern on my mind and yours. .
The reality is, control is pretty much a facade. My worry for my kids safety and future pretty much just keeps me in a state of worry. I've found it is when I let go and trust that He's got IT and THEM already that true freedom and peace is found. .
But it can be so hard I know... so I keep on looking up and keep on laying it back down at the cross. I surrender all. #sundayvibes #release #surrender #christianart #layitatthecross #blessedsavior #isurrenderall #artistsofinstagram #thecross #bible #easter #calvary #scriptureart #illustratedfaith

She's giddy .. a mom day all day with the other two gone. I forget sometimes how much extended uninterrupted alone time means to her. #momdate #youngestchild #intentionalparenting

On this day 15 years ago my first baby was born. He's now 6 feet tall and in a size 11 1/2 shoe...
I worked the day before and was set to have a baby shower that next day with coworkers from my station. I had no idea at that time how much that day he showed up three weeks early would change my life.
.
He doesn't want pictures posted so I'll respect that, but I sit here watching him out there thinking of all the phases we've walked through in this decade and a half. How as a toddler I wondered if he'd ever join the group and get out of my lap, how he'd build creations all over the house and cover himself in mud and negotiate for whatever it was he wanted like the most skilled attorney I've ever seen. How he spent hours at the baseball field, hours perfecting skate tricks and now hours at the beach. How he has this witty sly sense of humor and can make connections beyond his years. He holds a special place in my heart. I love him fiercely and pray the warrior spirit and determination I see in him he uses for good as he grows into a man. #fifteen

More patterns for #matsbootcamp2017 #makeartthatsells .. these are all in my yard. The previous owner was a contractor. When I was doing my walk through he wanted to show me how he repeated the diamond pattern all throughout the yard in different ways and I had to tell him I already noticed. My eye automatically notices these things and it really was part of what made me choose this house. I could see the great detail he took to make patterns and texture and little details everywhere. He shared with me he his daughter had cerebral palsy and for twelve years he worked primarily from home to raise her so he spent a lot of his time 'dinking' around the house on projects. I super appreciate all that he did that we now get to enjoy.

I was bitten by the #makeartthatsells bug with the children's illustrating course. Now it's time for boot camp. Five months of mini and big projects to build your portfolio. First assignment is to notice the patterns around you and capture what you like. I love the patterns in the fruit department at the grocery store! #mats #matsbootcamp2017

Too good not to share on this international women's day. We are all just doing this thing, one foot in front of the other. It doesn't mean you have to be all things to all people or jump when someone says jump. But you are a Wonder Woman for getting up, and doing the hard things, the little things, the memory making things, the selfless things, all the things you do. #overcomer #internationalwomensday #wonderwoman #wonderwomen
