FindingFaith: Surround yourself with Inspiration!

Hi friends! 
Hope all is well with everyone! Today I thought I would share some pics of things I have around my home that constantly inspire me. Some I have made, some my mother made, some are just positive words on my wall or decorations friends have gotten me. (Like the Faith sign from Shana I just got for my birthday). I hope you enjoy, and that it inspires you to find your own ways to surround yourself with positive affirmations!

Stay blessed friends! Next week I will share some of the fine art I have created!

Creatively yours,

Layering The Little Black Dress with Modcloth

Autum Layers with Modcloth

Hi Friends!

So Modcloth reached out to me recently to create my favorite layering pieces using their Fall and Winter pieces. Since I would normally be drawn to jeans I was pleasantly surprised how excited I got about this little black dress. I don't know if it is age or what but I feel like I have reverted back to when I was 8 and all I wanted to wear were dresses and sequins!

Modcloth if you guys didn't know is an online boutique with so many unique pieces...from vintage inspired to modern accessories, shoes, jackets, dresses and so much more. If there was a store that described my style it would be Modcloth. A mixture of everything, they carry really great quality pieces and some of my favorite brands like Seychelles! I always find something I LOVE! This Winter I am absolutely obsessed with anything plaid. The wrap coat with the faux fur could be my favorite I have found to date...and I am loving the cardigans..I live in Vegas so layering is a must since it could be hot or freezing! I have also decided I will be wearing tights this winter...I always love them but never find myself wearing you see the bears on these tights? haha I know..and let's not forget my love for cats...cats on shirts, cats on sweaters..and this scarf!! THIS SCARF!! I wearing more hats and accessorizing just a bit more, I am excited to layer it up all winter and really play with texture and print...and you MIGHT see me wearing that jacket... a lot...

Let's just say this could be a great BIRTHDAY wish list... What are some of your favorite layering pieces? Have you guys ever shopped on Modcloth? How would you describe your style? I am definitely a Vintage sporty Chic with a touch of modern...haha TODAY that is...we will see what I am tomorrow!

You can find all of these selections on the website   You can also find a huge selection of cardigans HERE Let me know what your favorites are!!

FindingFaith: Grateful

Hi friends! Hope everyone had a great weekend and holiday! Mine was amazing, but I'm not going to lie, I have had a rough week. But then I got these pics back from my 10 year anniversary/vow renewal. And realized how much I have to be grateful for...

We all need to be reminded to see the good sometimes. I am very blessed to have some amazing people in my life. Friends and family. As well as extended family. I was also fortunate enough to have attended a lecture by my art mentor Robert Beckmann at UNLV with another wonderful young lady, Sammy, that is like a daughter to me. I was blessed to have Robert introduce me during the lecture, met some of his amazing and talented friends, and had an incredible time after just catching up.

Another thing that makes me smile...
The magic spiral!! Thanks to my stepson Landon for that! Makes the perfect sweet potato chips!!
Just pop them in the oven on a cookie sheet with a little cooking spray at 400 till crispy! The WHOLE family LOVED them!

Creatively Yours,
