My Home Tour

It’s been a while since I have shared photos of our entire house. I was recently interviewed by Glitter Guide about our home and how to encourage creativity and playfulness, while still keeping things organized and stylish. The amazing photographer, Vivian Johnson, shot the photos and has beautifully captured the spirit of our home and play. Thanks for taking a peek into our family home. I’d love to hear from you and learn how you bring creativity and playfulness into your home!

Podcast interview -Art Made Easy: From preschool teacher to art entreprenuer with Megan Schiller of The Art Pantry

Do you listen to Podcasts?

Are you a fan yet of the blog, Deep Space Sparkle? If you’ve never heard of it, it is a fun, beautiful site packed with incredible art lessons and tons of great resources for teachers and parents.

I have been inspired by Patty’s blog for years and have always admired her- so of course I was thrilled when she asked me to be a guest on her new podcast, Art Made Easy.

Patty asked me to talk about my story of how I transitioned from a preschool teacher to becoming an entrepreneur and designing kids creative spaces. I also give tips on setting up art spaces in the home and putting out “invitations to create.”

If you’d like to check it out, click here to head over to Deep Space Sparkle and you can listen directly from the blog post or listen on iTunes or Stitcher.

Thanks!

Meet Rebecca Picker of Studio Sprout!

Rebecca Picker is a mother of 3, performer, costume designer, and founder of Studio Sprout, a children’s art studio and discovery garden in Santa Cruz, California. Rebecca and I have been friends since first meeting in college at UC Santa Cruz. When we re-connected at a college reunion a few years ago, she was super excited to hear about how I had started a toddler art studio out of my back cottage.  This got her thinking…
With a little encouragement from me and a lot of talent and drive on her part, she too was able to start a successful children’s art studio at home. I recently spent a morning at her art studio enjoying her amazing program and finding out a little more about how she managed to follow her passions and create a fulfilling business as a stay at home mom.
