just like that they arrive. the grumps. they’re sneaky like that.

the truth is is that the last couple of days have made this week feel very very long. i’m a tad on the grumpy side, and a whole lot of restless. i start painting, i stop painting. i start reading, i stop reading. i start writing, i stop. and on and on. like one big giant unsatisfying circle of blah. you know how it goes. sometimes, it is what it is. even when we have nothing to complain about. even when life is going very well. even when a bad mood is just simply a bad mood without any complications attached. i’m trying to let. it. go.

the other truth is is that i’m learning a little bit about my boundaries this week when it comes to what i can (and want to) handle and what i cannot when it comes to the nitty gritty details of the business end of what i do. it’s very easy for me to get pulled in, when perhaps i need to let the reigns go. there it is again: let it go.
mixed in with all of that, i’ve been thinking so much about true love – how it fuels us, inspires us, motivates us, and how it plays into our success. i have a lot to say about it, but i’m saving it right now, writing about it, and will share soon.
in other news, i’m all about the twilight books at the moment. my bff sent the entire series to me for my birthday and now my head is undeniably engrossed in all things bella and edward. the drama!
more soon (without the grumps).
ps-we’ve had a couple of new sponsors join us…please take a peek to the right and check out the goodness of their offerings!

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 and nourish their creative souls.

A creative heart/life update

A creative heart/life update

I went to Portland couple of weeks ago and had an experience that felt like a mixture of grief, awakening, and creative bursts all at once. Intense, illuminating, and ultimately really really GOOD. First, the grief. It's been so long since I've been back and I wasn't...
