I’m obsessed with Instagram – it’s my favorite online home! Here’s a recap from the last week, and for those of you who aren’t on Instagram, come and join me!

Thursday, February 23

Current view. Reading Harry Potter to True who is snuggled up in Lulu’s dog bed by the fire. We are almost done with Book #1 and we both looove it.

Annnnnd we’re out. Goodnight, friends.

Hello, central Oregon!

Notes and doodles while talking biz lady stuff.

There are many connections and relationships that I have grieved and wished for in my life, but I will say that the one obvious and incredibly graceful thread – the thing that has so fortunately woven its blessings time and time again through my life – is a sense of belonging among women. They have mothered me, cried with me, laughed at my neuroses with me, challenged me, celebrated me. Sometimes they ebb and flow through like angels only for a particular season of life and sometimes we hang in for dear life, for life. Either way, I do not take our connected journeys for granted and I count my lucky stars for the ways grace has given me this blessing.

Thank you to these ladies for a weekend of biz/boss lady dreaming, questioning, and considering all the big things there are to consider when building lives of creativity and biz.

I can’t even. Ever.
Loving this new piece. It’s a bit different for me, a color combo I don’t generally use but I love it. Here’s to creative expansion, always.

Tuesday, February 28

Good morning from the land of Kelly Rae’s homeI refreshed this little nook with a painting that True and I collaborated on a couple of years ago (Sabrina Ward Harrison inspired, of course) and a large pink planter pot. Working from home has me falling in a new kind of love with our home. I am crazy grateful to have a roof, warmth, food, and a place to call home.
Yep. That’s Lulu lounging on top of True. About one second later True yelled, “Lulu! BOUNDARIES!”

Wednesday, March 1

Good morning from a cold Portland! Today it’s a Skype with one of my besties, a work date with Nichole, and the return of John who has been gone for over a week. Photo by @shesawthings
It doesn’t look like it, but Lulu loves being held. She insists on being a lap dog at 60 pounds. And I don’t mind one bit.
My journey of fitness continues. 4 solid months of consistent intense training. I’ve plateaued a bit with my weight loss (gonna start tracking my WW points more strictly), but my heart health, endurance, energy, and discipline have come VERY far. I am proud of myself for finding the time, for allowing myself all the feelings and doing it anyway, for not giving up, and for staying the course even when all I wanna do is eat pasta and take a hot bath at the end of day. Thank you @lynzeelynx for being my fitness buddy and for being in this particular journey (among other life journeys) with me.


Hi, I'm Kelly Rae Roberts!

Before I picked up my first paintbrush at the age of 30, I was a medical social worker. I followed my whispers and started playing with paint and everything changed. Now I’m a full-time artist, author and Possibilitarian, who helps women explore their creativity, nourish their souls and build a thriving creative business.

Happy Birthday, John!

  John turned 46 years young last month. To celebrate, we snuggled into a little cabin along the gorgeous Metolius River. We ate, wandered along the river, listened to music (Bob Dylan mostly), watched movies (Have you seen the Beastie Boys documentary? So...
