Weird is Beautiful

As you read this, I will be on the west coast, soaking up the sunshine and participating in a long planned reunion of some of my old music friends.

I am so excited for the opportunity to get to sing with the folks who were really my first foray into singing the way I dreamed - as a rock singer.

Singing is something that always made me feel like shooting star - even if it was in the dingy rehearsal room at the back of a old building in a little old suburb San Bernardino, CA. 

Something else that has always made me feel like bright and amazing is being weird.

What if...what if truely being a shining light, a city on a hill, a lamp to others means embracing that nothing is wrong with me. RADICAL.

I'm telling the rest of the story behind the art over on the Inside Out blog today.

Check out my feelings on being weird!

Peace, ya'll!

You Shine

Once again, I really am so in love with the newest kit from Inside Out - SHINE is just full of beautiful, warm, sunshiney papers and images.

I had such a BLAST with this theme...For this project, I was going through some of my old photos and came across these two old photos of me.

I'm over on the Inside Out Blog today with my You Shine project;

I was so inspsired by the kit and these pics that this project came together in less than 30 minutes...For me that is a serious record!!!

Is there a photo of you as a kid that shows your particular uniqueness and shine???? Does it make you smile to think of the moment or the person in that photo?  

I'm so interested in how you think of this topic! 

Head on over to the blog and check it out...

Peace, ya'll!

I Am Enough

Am I the only one here who suffers from the anxiety of inadequacy?  It feels like the pressure of life grows "out there" in the world.

I suffer from perfectionism - as in I want everything to be...Usually I'm quite aware...sometimes it creeps in on me.

But, as they say, knowing is half the battle...

I have to remind myself often - I am enough.

On the Inside Out Blog today, I'm sharing my final project - I Am Enough.

Because I am...and so are you.

Peace, ya'll!

I Am Capable of Big Things

Its absolutely amazing when the products in a kit do all the heavy lifting for you. That is certainly the case with the Simple Stories Thankful paper.

Don't get me wrong, I love to journal and I love to create.

But finding a product that has precisely what I need is kind of like finding my name on one of those tourist shop key makes me excessively joyful! (You've seen my name! they don't make keychains with that name!)

I'm over on the Inside Out Blog today, talking about my latest project form the June I AM kit.

Peace, ya'll!

I Am Becoming

Sometimes I find myself wondering how others work out the things in their live that need working out.

I've tried a bunch of different things...and if you've been reading these Stories Behind the Art for long, you know I take this stuff seriously...maybe sometimes a little too seriously.

Today I'm working through the Story Behind I Am Becoming over on the Inside Out blog.

Peace, ya'll!
