What Story are you Telling Yourself?I’m was listening to “The Spiritual Artist” podcast the other day. In episode 17 Chris Miller was interviewing Artist Jackie Fuch and she was speaking directly to me.
Right at about the 22 minute mark is says…..
When an artist says, “Oh, I’m struggling”, that’s not abundance, that’s lack. We always have a choice. Am I living in lack or am I living in abundance?
Am I a fountain in the world or am I a drain?
Wow, just wow.
She goes on talking about manifestation and how quickly what she puts out there comes to her. I was just wondering what my next blog post was going to be about when I started listening to this podcast. TaDa!
#FriendlyFridayShout Out Julie Shunick Brown
Julie Shunick Brown is a contemporary artist in Dallas, TX.
I love what she has to say about her process. “My painting evolves as life does. Currently, the process is intuitive - no preconception or idea of the end result. The work gets more deliberate and intentional as it progresses but it develops as a reaction to what is on the canvas. I focus on composition and color and the result is a surprise that often seems reflective of life.”

No one’s coming….NO ONEI stumbled across this reel on Instagram when I was avoiding work. It’s so powerful!
I have mixed feelings about it, not that I don’t agree with it, because I do. Knowing it all comes down to me is scary. Showing up for others is a cakewalk for me but showing up for myself is a struggle at best some days. That’s why when these beautiful, friendly reminders come knocking on my door, or rather in my Instagram feed, I pay attention and am grateful. Here is what Mel Robbins said.
#FriendlyFriday Shout Out Bluebell KitchenCharlie along with her mother Erica own Bluebell Kitchen. They create amazing botanical inspired wedding cakes and macarons. You’ll have to cross the pond to go to their shop and taste their goodies. I guarantee it’s worth the trip. Their cakes are a work of art. I’m so mesmerized by their talent. Even if you aren’t planning a trip to Kent follow them on IG @bluebellkitchen. You won’t be disappointed.
I’ve known Charlie for many years and she is as delightful as her creations.

LEAFIn my travels I’d seen stacked rocks. I’ve been told it was for other travelers to help them safely find their way. Trail markers if you will. Though at the time I never thought much of it as an art form. Well, not until my friend Laurence started posting about it did I ever think of stacking rocks as anything more.
