I’m a huge fan of the Heartmade blog by Mayi Carles and for 2013 she put out a call for help to promote her Life is Messy bootcamp. I immediately thought of my default girl illustration writing out the message “I’m Messy and I Know It” – so here’s the final product!

I used my Wacom tablet (finally, getting more practice instead of scanning!) and really love the result. Drawing how I want to draw and just following my heart. Just like Marisa from Creative Thursday, Mayi helped me to learn that cute can be professional and successful. I used to be plagued by misconceptions, thinking I had to be serious and grown-up to be taken seriously. But it was all wrong, because it just wasn’t the authentic me.
Now that I follow my heart and create freely, I’m a much happier and more successful person. Funny how things work out. Thank you, Universe! I thought it would be nice to give back to the community, so please take advantage of this free art printable. Declare your messiness and know that it is a-okay! Be yourself and thrive! I hope you enjoy and don’t hesitate to Tweet or Facebook share – I would really appreciate it.
Let’s rock 2013 together!
I know that every day, something sad happens somewhere in the world. This holiday season we’ve all been faced with gruesome news and challenges of every kind. I know we all feel it somewhere in our lives.
Even though my hands are shaking with worry and fear at times, I wanted to share an illustration with all of you. Let’s think about peace on earth. Let’s cherish the time we have with our loved ones and live life to the fullest. Be kind. Be happy. Be you.
Yay! Today is a special day – 12/12/12 – how often does that come around, right? In celebration, I’ll be sending out a special preview of The Creative Entrepreneur Toolkit to my newsletter subscribers only for free! Ready to be inspired and pumped up for creative business action?!
Easter is near, so we can all use a cute little bunny image to play with. My little doodle turned into BIG ears, so I thought the sentiment really fits. What can you create with this image? A cool card, decorate a scrapbook page or another crafty project? Download the digital stamp below and let me know what you think. Feel free to post a link to your project in the comments below. Enjoy!
