Revolution of Love.

Revolution of Love.

September 15, 2015

I was so honored when I received an email from Bobbi of Revolution of Love asking if she could interview me for her Saturday Spotlight: Celebrating those who bring beauty into the world. I am a woman of many words so my answers are pretty lengthy. She asked me things like when did I know […]

I got back from Phoenix late on Sunday. Had two very successful workshops and got to witness the beautiful wedding of my clients in Tucson. It was a very hectic week so yesterday I spent Labor Day at the beach with my best gal pals. I have a back up of client work that needs […]

How to help Refugees.

September 06, 2015

We all saw the horrid photos of the washed up refugee boys. I was particularly moved by all of these illustrations. #DrownedSyrianBoy. #Syria have enough to count his death. pic.twitter.com/kXcQY7hyHa — HOPE SAROUT☆☆☆ (@HopeSarout) September 2, 2015 Yesterday I heard the plea of Pope Francis for all European Catholics to take in refugee families.

How owning my own business changed my spiritual life.

How owning my own business changed my spiritual life.

August 31, 2015

I used to get a paycheck deposited into my bank account every two weeks. I knew its exact amount to the penny and I was able to budget accordingly. It took a long time to find that job, but I was employed while searching for a new job, so I never went a week without […]

Brooklyn Hand Lettering Workshop.

Brooklyn Hand Lettering Workshop.

August 20, 2015

We had such a blast teaching a workshop in July with Cultivate NYC in Brooklyn. The studio was in Fort Greene, just down the road from where I lived with Heart’s Home in 2013 after returning from Brazil. I was seriously in awe of where my life has come since those days. Kelsea of East Olivia […]

Jet.

August 14, 2015

It’s Friday! Yay! I just got an email from jet.com offering 20 of my readers free one year memberships. So what is JET? A mix between Costco and Amazon. They sold me when I heard that–I love both of those. I first met them when I attended the BlogHer Conference in New York last month. […]

Why doesn’t the guy at the grocery store ask me out?

Why doesn’t the guy at the grocery store ask me out?

August 04, 2015

Dating is my favorite topic to write about—I always have a lot of stories, thoughts, observances whirling in my mind about other things, but dating is the one issue that compels me enough to open a new document and write it out. It fascinates me. I think it’s because it’s something that I can’t just […]

Custom Hand Lettered Helmet.

Custom Hand Lettered Helmet.

July 01, 2015

Last week, I was having a little jealousy towards my friend’s watermelon bicycle helmet. I thought I’d try to spruce up my helmet. I spray painted it navy blue and used acrylic paint to hand letter “bicycle” in different languages. I love how it turned out! I rode into the city last week to gather […]

Interrupt Anxiety with Gratitude.

Interrupt Anxiety with Gratitude.

June 30, 2015

(original artwork by Be A Heart Design) I’ve started a little thing on Instagram – Gratitude Tuesday. Gratitude has become my best medicine for anxiety. I use two main tactics when anxiety tries to creep in. 1) I have a discussion with the anxiety and tell it that “I don’t actually do anxiety any more.” My brother read […]

Father Richard Rohr.

June 29, 2015

This quote is from the June 28th, 2015 reflection entitled, A Different Consciousness, written by Richard Rohr and sent out by the Center for Action and Contemplation. Hand lettered by Erica. I currently cannot get enough of Richard Rohr. I discovered him over a year ago when my parish in Brooklyn (if you live there, you have […]

Overalls.

Overalls.

June 26, 2015

Last month I was in Phoenix after a family vacation to Mexico. Meredith Amadee and I were teaming together for a project for Leah Darrow (which will be released next week).  These days, I don’t really go anywhere without my overalls so I asked her if we could get a couple of shots of them […]
