Dreams Come True

All Her Dreams Would Come True - wm

She wasn’t like the rest of the girls. But nevertheless, she was a princess and she was adored. This much she knew to be true. What she didn’t know was that one day, all her

dreams would come true, even though she didn’t believe she deserved them.

She would make a difference in people’s lives and shine her bright light for all the world to feel.

I started this sweet girl during my lesson at the Art of Sisterhood Retreat. The students were all busy making their own art based on an inner-child written exercise I had them do, and while they created, I began to let my inner child play and this little one emerged. I was limited on paint colors, as I had only brought yellows and blues with me that day. So she has blue hair and I don’t care. In fact, I love it!

Have the courage to believe that all your dreams will come true one day, friends.

There Is Always Hope

“There is Angel of Hope - watermarkalways HOPE”.

Through the hardest times, there is always Hope, assuring us that it will get better. Hope is what keeps us going day to day. During our darkest hours, Hope is the light that shines and pulls us through. We hold on to Hope when there is nothing left to hold on to. And when we feel alone, Hope remains.

Wishing you Hope in 2018.

Love and Acceptance

Love and Acceptance Girl - wm

“She just wanted to be loved and accepted”

I believe that love and acceptance are universal desires; part of being human. And I think the more often we give them, the more open we become to receiving them. Give love and acceptance freely and reap the rewards.

Have a blessed day, courageous friends.

I am SO VERY excited to share that The Traveling Art of Sisterhood Retreat is coming back in 2018 and I’ll once again have the honor and privilege of teaching among some of the most beautiful souls I’ve ever met!

I’m still feeling the magic of our experience together in November 2017. I can’t stress enough how unique and unbelievably amazing it was to spend a week together with a group of authentic, kind, loving, funny, and inspiring women – student and teachers alike. It was a phenomenal retreat and I can’t believe I get to do it again!!!

Our theme this year is Rise Above – Shine Your Light. We’ll be sharing stories, healing our hearts, connecting with one another, and creating art, and having fun!

Registration is OPEN!

Come join Kara Strachan Bullock, Jennifer Albin, Jennifer Bonneteau, Denise Braun, Sara Burch, Lauren Rudolph, Kiala Givehand, Tiare Smith Woods, Muriel Stegers, Ivette Newport, and me in Scottsdale, AZ – September 29 to October 4, 2018!!!

Hope to see you there!



Soul Friends Forever

“Soul Friends”

Soul Friends - wm

They have been together a lifetime. Actually, several lifetimes. Their souls travel together

from lifetime to lifetime, helping each other learn life’s hardest lessons. Together they hold on to the hard-earned wisdom that forgiveness is the key to peace. Together they hold on to immense gratitude and authentic joy for one another. Together they hold on to the belief that life is beautiful, no matter how difficult it gets.  Together they hold on to the love they share. Together they are blooming, growing, and soaring in this lifetime and will continue to do so in lifetimes to come.
