Moonphase Creative: Fam Edition

Last week the world sent kids back to school without leaving the house. I say world, but I mean our little house–as well as many other homes around certain districts in our city and surrounding US. It was a huge deal; educators had to scramble to develop some kind of e-learning based strategy while facingContinue reading “Moonphase Creative: Fam Edition”

The Artist Mom’s Summer Adventure

Remember when I said the summer insanity was nearly upon us? Well—it’s here! And I have been fighting a ton of anxiety, mom-guilt, and a lot of pressure to 1) get my business better organized and continue the expansion and 2) prepare everything and everyone for our newest addition that will arrive in August. ThisContinue reading “The Artist Mom’s Summer Adventure”

The Summer Situation: When Summer isn’t Easy to Navigate

Spring has sprung. We are planting our gardens and planning graduations, coping with—I mean celebrating—Mother’s Day, and preparing for Summer.

I, for one, have felt overwhelmed as IContinue reading “The Summer Situation: When Summer isn’t Easy to Navigate”

Slowing Down for the Better

The first week of January is almost up, and it is hard to believe 2019 is actually here.

We’ve had an eventful few months, and unfortunatelyContinue reading “Slowing Down for the Better”

Moonphase in Holiday Mode

Priorities around the holidays feel like a game of Jenga—one wrong move and my whole tower of time management and work-life-balance threatens to topple.

For me, my creative process is part of my self-care, and I find myself wanting to escapeContinue reading “Moonphase in Holiday Mode”

Juniper Tree Natural Body Care

I am so excited to embark upon a new journey within Moonphase Creative. This new endeavor is so new and exciting, it deserved its own unique branding and a dedicated name.

Moonphase Is Growing!

Art+ Writing classes are growing and evolving and I feel so inspired by the work I see happening among my students. The classes serve as so much more than a lesson in writing and art (although there are those benefits too!), but a personal journey of self-expression and catharsis. I am looking to expand myContinue reading “Moonphase Is Growing!”

Moonphase Updates

I am excited to share updates and information about both my sales AND classes I will be teaching. I’ve updated my Etsy shop, and would love to ship some art to a good home. A lot of my art has been not only a joy to create, but a joy to share, and the processContinue reading “Moonphase Updates”

Let it Go

As the year winds down, and our lives slip into a colder state of being, I find it is the perfect time to focus on introspection. This is largely why I’ve chosen to focus on aspects of Moonphase that give me joy, and bring the buzz of energetic passion. I want to grow my businessContinue reading “Let it Go”
