throughout my life i was taught to separate media into two categories: the “imaginary” and “truth”. but what if it’s not that simple? what if there is truth hidden in films and fictional novels? what if there are lies hidden in “the news”? what if all this time i should have been discerning carefully between all the media i am inviting into my thoughts and life journey? what if, like an art exhibit, it’s all curated? should i be carefully curating a life of my own and what does that look like? does it take work? or should i simply allow others to curate my life, thoughts and views along my journey?
i also share about a recent “asherah” or heavenly mother commission: the process, the design, & the symbols included. it’s such a special experience creating alongside collectors, my heavenly parents, and savior. i’ll also share how my collector is including the piece in her holiday traditions -- inviting all to make new connections and revisit sweet things they’ve learned from their heavenly parents & savior. hooray for the holidays and this cozy season!

candy colored studio podcast episode #33: being an artist mama of twins - 10 things that surprised us
What's it really like having Twins? I'll be sharing 10 of the things that surprised us most about having twins...what it's really like trying to sleep with 2 babies, the crazy things we did to survive those first few years, the ups and the downs and the sweetness that only having more than one baby can bring.
I know, I know, you’ve always dreamed of having twins...or know someone else who has. My aunt has boy girl twins and 2 of my cousins both have twin girls. Still with that genetic factor in the mix, I had no idea we were the next ones down the pike. I knew it wasn’t a picnic but there have still been some things that have surprised us. From the complete lack of sleep, going out in public, quarantining our family that first Summer, jumping into Homeschooling, nursing 2 babies, potty training, swim lessons, riding bikes, kindergarten, #twinversations, & the unique relationships that come with being a twin.
