On finding your calling

The YOSC: Entry #12 I’m doing something a little different this week, in honour of The 100 Day Project. This year’s project is fast approaching, set to start on the 4th (tomorrow)! The 100 Day Project is a great, big, global art project and celebration of creativity, shared through social media. It’s as simple as this – […]

On getting over imposter syndrome…

This post is about imposter syndrome. Specifically, mine! I’ve had a stubborn, recurring case for, oh, pretty much my life. As a grad student, parent, creative professional, um… person who cooks things people actually like…? And so on. But I am pleased to report that it seems I am finally kicking the old affliction! Hallelujah. So […]

What if our “deficits” are really our strengths?

Hey guys. So, today I want to talk about a gorgeous perspective shift that has made my life so much better. It’s an idea that comes from my occupational therapy (OT) school days, and like so much from that time steeped in the badass world of knocking down barriers, empowering and enabling people, it’s had a huge impact on my approach […]

Running.

It’s Saturday morning. 9 am. We’re sitting on the floor. I’m washing down a piece of cold pizza, still on the table from last night, with the end of my coffee. I scored the last of the cream. Alida’s nose is a slippery waterfall but it’s been the best night we’ve had in a week or so, with […]

Happy Birthday, Little Blog!

On January 14th this blog officially turned 1 year old! I am the shyly proud creator of 50 individual posts. My goal was to keep it up at least a year and then see, and although my upkeep has been a little spotty, I am pleased to report that my interest has surprisingly not been. I’ll […]

The 100 Day Project: Week 3

Week 3 – almost a quarter of the way through! I had a little fun trying out some different stuff this week – days 18 and 19 I particularly enjoyed. Notice that I got a new white gel pen? I love it! Ah, it’s the little things!

But what if I fail?

Today I’ve got a tidbit of sweet, serendipitous inspiration for you that’s been on my mind! Last week I stumbled upon Smart Creative Women – a podcast founded and hosted by artist/creativity coach Monica Lee featuring women in the business of creativity. She interviews super cool women (and some men) doing exciting, creative stuff and […]

Dressing to feel good

This is not a fashion post, exactly. Or a DIY post. But I am going to talk about clothes. And I am making myself a dress – I started it suddenly and without a pattern at about 10pm the night before last, but it seems to be miraculously working out! Rather, I wanna talk about feeling good in our […]

Do Something Different

A delightful Thursday to you! How do you like this week’s graphic? Achim wasn’t sure but I’m into it. But then, I also happen to be wearing aztec-print leggings with a red on pink striped skirt, a blue and white striped scarf and a t-shirt in a marvellously clashing shade of pink. I credit years of relating to Claudia […]
