Sydney, Australia: How to Travel to the Other Side of the World in Comfort

Sometimes there are those moments in life that are super unreal. They don’t come along often, but when they do they are amazing. I found myself one night unexpectedly at the top of the Sydney Harbor Bridge, dancing with my sisters and mom, while colorful animations lit up the Opera House and city behind us. I don’t even think I could put that experience into words. I didn’t know the bridge walk was a thing until we got there that morning, and we also didn’t know what Vivid was or that it was happening until the sun started to set that night...

How to Balance Your Confidence and Ego

We all want to be confident, but we also don't want to be those high-level managers who let their ego get in the way of working with people or making a decision that would benefit the company. Although having an ego and confidence is often synonymous, having a huge ego can really harm you. Having the confidence to support everyone else on your team, will only make your company and you succeed in the end...

Design Mash: Calming Living Room

This living room is in a house on acres of land. Maybe a farmhouse or an idyllic spot in the forest. Either way, it is an oasis to spend cozy nights in with family or hang out with friends during the day. I imagine french doors opening up to a giant wrap-around porch and fresh summer air. That warm sunny weather would be great right about now...

How to be an Extroverted Introvert

Merry Christmas!

As you might have guessed from earlier posts, I am more of an introvert. I like hanging out at home rather than going out and talking to myself rather than other people most of the time. So when I found myself at a wedding, where I knew a couple people, but wasn't sitting with them, I had a quick moment where my brain switched into some sort of survival mode. It must have worked because my boyfriend came up to me afterward and said, "look at you running around like a socialite!" A socialite!? I have never been called that before...

An Irish Adventure: How to Take Risks and Have Them Pay Off

It was quiet in a loud way. Where it was too noisy to talk, so nobody tried. The wind was rushing by us as we flew through the water around the Dingle Peninsula on the southwest shore of Ireland. It was almost the end of the journey to this place where I now felt like I belonged, even though I stuck out like a sore thumb with my American accent and giant neon orange rain jacket. I wouldn’t have it any other way....

Organizing your Information

A business won't run without some organization. At least it won't be as efficient as it could. But you don't have to be running your own business to need to stay organized, and for artists, this cannot be truer. For us, we are always creating, then moving on and creating something else. If we don't stay on top of it, we will forget about all the other hundreds of things we have made before this. Then when it comes time to apply to a show, or you're looking for an image of that old piece, you can't find it anywhere...

And the Best Family Member Award this Holiday Season Goes to...

The holidays are here! I have to say, Thanksgiving is my #1 favorite holiday by a landslide. No contest. First, the food is the best ever! We also don’t have to do any weird present giving, no thank you cards, no trying to think of something to get someone that they won't want to throw away immediately, and feeling guilty about throwing away unwanted gifts given to you. Thanksgiving also has the perfect weather. I’m from New England, and that means the leaves are changing color (I love stepping on the crunchy ones). It's cool but not freezing cold, Sweater, vest and boot weather, but inside with food and family, it's so cozy. I just love it. I am so excited...
