Life is Moving at Lightning Speed

Moving day is fast approaching!  I have been officially self-employed for almost a week now and it is AMAZING!  Tomorrow my son is leaving for our new home with what is left of our “stuff”.  I have spent the past week doing a major purge, and it feels great to let go of so much “stuff”.  I have edited, and edited and edited my belongings to fit in my future “tiny home”.  Life is moving lightning fast and it is amazing.  I took the day off yesterday to enjoy the beautiful weather and take a bit of a breather.  I am feeling jazzed and ready to go today.

It feels good to shake things up and open myself up to new possibilities.  I am super excited to spend some more time with my Dad this year, he is an amazing man with a quiet and gentle soul, an incredible gardener and builder and I can not wait to learn from him and hang out with him!  Bonus, my son finally gets some much-needed Grandpa time too!  There are so many wonderful things to look forward to with this move that I can hardly contain my excitement.  Actually, I can not contain it AT ALL!

Last week was my last Creativity Class here in Fort Nelson for the next while, and we had a stellar time!  I am so grateful for all of the amazing people who can out to get creative with me over the past year.  I have learned so much from my AMAZING students.  Thank you all for sharing with me!

My course goes into beta testing this week.  I am so excited to launch it once I arrive in Rose Prairie.  I am slowly pecking away at getting this new website thing figured out, it has been a bit of a struggle switching to this entirely new program, but I will be able to do so much more with it in the end.  Tabitha, the ROCKSTAR, is coming to help me get it figured out this weekend!

If you have not already done so, please make sure to sign up for newsletters and updates from my new blog, Living UP.  For the next little while, this is where my main focus will be until I have it established.  The painting is taking a brief hiatus for the time being, but the creativity will never stop!

The Secret is OUT!

I have not been busy creating “artworks” for the past month, I have been incredibly busy working on another passion of mine.

Today is the day!  Today I am announcing to the world the project I have been working my ass off for the past month and a half.  Are you ready?  It is big!

I wrote a book!  And best of all, when it is ready, it will be a FREE ebook!  YUP, totally free!   While I can not share the book (It’s All UP From Here- Giving Life to Your WILDEST DREAMS) with you yet (it is in the hands of my editor)  it is only PART of the awesomeness I am working towards right now.

My latest creative project is UP.  UP is based on the aforementioned book, but it is so much more.  UP is about reaching your most incredible and freaking awesome goals, it is also about inspiration and living the best life possible for you.

The art will be slow coming over the next couple of months while I focus my energies on getting UP, UP and running.   By the spring, after we move and the book and online courses launch, I will have a bit of time to get back to my other passion, painting.

Please check out UP and join the facebook group to stay up to date on all of the INCREDIBLE AWESOMENESS that is going on there!  Make sure to sign UP on the website so that you will be the first to know when the ebook is available.  EEEEKKKK!  I am so excited!
