12 years ago I went to Ireland for the first time, we were only there 4 days but I knew I had to come back.
I’ve been making more time for beauty and joy, creating for the sake of it in 2021. Focusing on drawing and painting flowers, buds and plants from places I’ve lived (Brisbane > Kildare > Galway > London) as part of a ‘Waiting For Spring’ series.
Over the summer, I decided to start going through my travel photos taken over the years and explore the process of making them into fine art prints. I plan to print them locally here in Ottawa, Canada (our current home) to send out to others who are seeking to add a bit of colour–and perhaps adventure–to their home and/or work space walls. A portion of sales will go to organizations which help others settle and find a home, when they are without one.
One thing I know about my past experiences with manifesting is you can’t predict how quickly or slowly it will happen, you need to be careful what you wish for and you need to be ready when it arrives.
Integrating intuition into everyday life. What works for me may not work for you but the secret’s out guys: we all have intuition but only some tap into it intentionally (like a maple tree) to let the good stuff flow.
Do you believe in signs and omens? I’ve been getting ample reminders of my past and now I am exploring how I have changed and what I can bring with me on the next evolution of my adventures!
Call it self-care, personal development, life or business planning…I call it getting back in touch with yourself and listening to the inner voice we so often question or silence completely. I use my experiences, storytelling and intuition to help others with self reflection.
It is based on the three-hour workshop I delivered for WordCamp Ottawa last weekend but will go into more detail, focusing primarily on idea validation, with the added benefits of weekly accountability, templates and resources, a bit of virtual community, a sprinkling of positive vibes (always) and gentle bum kicking (or motivation if you wish). I am really happy with the feedback on the content and my presenter style…5 out of 5 ***** from session attendees, lots of interaction throughout the live workshop and many staying on afterwards to have a chat with me and discuss their ideas.
I thought I’d share a bit of reading material I’ve been using to help with the past five months I spent hibernating during one of Ottawa’s coldest winters in a while. A recent book I’ve been reading is called ‘Broad Strokes: 15 Women Who Made Art And Made History (In That Order)‘ by Bridget QuinnContinue reading “Choose Yourself First: Women Making Art (And History)”
