My Life


I found out this week that I will be participating in the next I Heart Art: Portland’s Mixer Match on August 17th!  Yippee! The first couple of days after I found out, I was in shock and walked around in a daze.  Now it’s fully sinking in and I have much work to do!  I’m so grateful for this opportunity; this will be my first real experience trying to sell my product to others.  I’m also crazy nervous, but...

  "Not everyone's language is writing", Danielle Laporte When I heard Danielle Laporte say this at the World Domination Summit, I felt a huge weight being lifted from my shoulders.  It was really one of the most defining moments of the entire summit for me.  I instantly knew this to be true for me.     I've always had a disconnect with language.  This started when I was a small...

I spent the last three days volunteering at the World Domination Summit.  I can't express how much I enjoyed and appreciated all that I learned and the great people that I met.  I have lots of ideas of how I can apply the lessons I learned to my own life.  But I'm one who needs time to percolate my thoughts to articulate what the heck I want...
