I need to catch up sharing my artwork. Each #do15for15 project is taking much longer than 15 minutes, but I’m SO glad I’m doing it and allowing myself this time to create something just for me. I’m learning a lot about my skills and pushing through that self-doubt and “imposter syndrome“ that everyone who’s anyone has to work through in order to be who they want to be. Even last year I couldn’t bring myself to call myself an artist... a “real” artist. With each painting my confidence gets stronger and I know I can do this! #kcartist #gouachepainting #tcctribe #twoturtlesgiftco #kcmaker #shoplocalkc #kcsmallbusiness #artistinkc #kansascityartist #crystalpainting #amethystpainting #crystalaffirmations
I think I found my new favorite medium!! I bought myself a set of gouache paints and I’m hooked!! This sweet horse is in her beginning stages. Soon she’ll be surrounded with flowers and leaves. #kcmaker #gouachepainting #shoplocalkc #twoturtlesgiftco #horsepainting #inprogresspainting

I love this saying SO much! First, learn your trade, become a pro and then tear down those walls that confine you and re-design the world around you! How have you "broken the rules like an artist" in your life? #creativebizowner #bossmom #bossbabe #creativetribe #twoturtlesgiftco #empoweringwomen #creativeentrepreneur #kcmaker
I love these delicate little bracelets. I wear this not because I AM fearless, but because I WANT to be MORE fearless when it comes to life and my business. What word would you wear as a daily reminder? #befearless #empoweringwomen #twoturtlesgiftco #creativeentrepreneur #creativebizowner #bossbabe #girlboss #kcmaker #bossmom #artjewelry
I wore a pair of these yesterday while out and about and got so many complements on them! They are so light and give the punch of color I wanted with my outfit. They're now up on my website and are the perfect fall accessory. #twoturtlesgiftco #creativebizowner #kcmaker #jewelrydesigner #accessories
Never give up! This is one of my favorite mottos. Some days it isn't easy, but it doesn't mean you've failed. Get back up and try again! #nevergiveup #empoweringwomen #girlboss #bossbabe #twoturtlesgiftco #inspired #getbackup #ladyboss #womensupportingwomen
My last natural canvas pennant just went out the door! I guess its time for me to make some more! Did you know that mine are handmade by me and are double sided? No raw edges on the back! These are canvas on the front and cotton on the back. I also offer them in black and with or without a design! #twoturtlesgiftco #creativebizowner #handmadepennant #pindisplay #displaypennant #wallpennant

For me, weekends are about spending time with my kids, doing some house cleaning and also playing around with new mediums and feeding my creativity. About 80% of my "just because" projects end up in a trash heap and never see the light of day again, but sometimes I hit a home run and come up with something exciting and new!! Like this necklace and earrings set... How gorgeous is she? 😍 I just can't wait to play some more!!! What color combo do you want to see next? Comment below and I just might make one! Everyone who comments with a suggestion will get put in a drawing to win this set!!! Tag a friend and get a second entry!! I'll draw the winner on Wednesday! 🏆
