Do fewer things. Do them better. Those six words are a healing balm right there.
Abstract art projects for kidliwinks care of Design Mom. I love love love art projects for kids… *I* want to do them, ya know?
Speaking of which, this little mermaid of mine is already into the paints.
The other morning we woke up, and the first thing she did was crawl out to the verandah where we’d left a canvas, pick up a paintbrush and start brushing away.
And this is what happens when you let babes play with your box of paints while you attempt to get your own painting in:
I’ve done it before, and I’ll do it again. Fuscia smeared baby feet = joy!!!

Business Goddess Corner
The Future of Blogs is Paid Access. I always love when these discussions come up, with so many ideas and possibilities of how to earn gorgeous dobleros, have a ding dang divine time AND help people. Free blogs will always be around. But micro products? They are exciting. Way of da future, baybee!
How to throw a kicking resource party. I totally believe in the powers of groups to make things happen. Whether it’s a resource party or a mastermind group or a Business Goddess Circle – we can get shinier, more productive & wiser when we can help and be helped by others.
Oh! And just this morning I was holed up in our laundry during a monsoonal downpour, doing a video interview for the Right Brainers in Business Summit. It’s free & is glorious… perfecto for creative business owners.
AND I should mention because I get asked every single week and now I’ve mentioned business stuff I’ll get asked again – when ze Business Goddess e-course is coming out… it’s coming, it’s coming! As fast as my little ducky legs can paddle!

Nursing You by Erica Jong is the most stunning poem. Makes me weep. See:
On the first night
of the full moon,
the primeval sack of ocean
& I gave birth to you

as my mother
me out of herself,
as her mother did,
& her mother’s mother before her,
all of us born
I so wish I’d found these adorable artist baby maternity singlets when I was still all gorgeously with chile!

Dude is a ukelele MAESTRO!
And I’ve been teaching myself herbs by watching Susun Weed videos on YouTube. Above & below is two of my fave interviews.
