One of my dear childhood memories was when my uncle showed up at my front door with a bicycle. Today, a few decades later, I got to #payitforward to @amazingspidermann with a ukulele. Now she can watch all @doddleoddle videos all over again for like the 500th time, practice... practice… lol. Love your face!! see you soon xoxo
❤️❤️❤️ Text I received from Jimi as the letters are starting to arrive ! I just am blown away at our supporters. We share the story of Jimi & Matthew being sober and drug free for two years and getting into an apartment AND our fans send them letters filled with encouragement and love. I guarantee you that Jimi & Matthew will have these letters hung up in their apartment. I just cannot thank you all enough. From the bottom of my heart, I love every single one of you who follow our page and support our mission to help the homeless. Have an amazing day ! .
Trust yourself. You can do more than you think you can do.
Today I checked off Day 2 of our new program, I’m totally in LOVE with it!! Lots of lifting which is my Love!! Tomorrow is an off day, think I’ll run?!?! We’ll see! Love the options!! .
I once was a mom trying to figure out how to figure out how to find myself again after having kids. Once that limbo between being pregnant & not pregnant is over can be sooooo tough to get back into the real way of life. I gave my everything to everything & everyone but myself. I have learned that I need to take time to myself & that’s what these daily workouts have been for me, right here at my house, on my on time, when I want to, when it fits for me....hardly any time away from anything since I’m not traveling anywhere, helps with the guilt of not being home with the kids. Now, they join me if they are around. I wish I had found this way of life sooner. I have a momma of a newborn just Rocking it right now, makes me wish I had, had this after my kids were born. Community. Support. Encouragement. I LOVE it all!!! If you’d like to join us, please Reach Out!!! There is a whole community waiting to help you reach your goals!! ❤️

NEW STOCKIST LOVE: I am absolutely thrilled to be selling my handmade Australian Indigenous fabric pendants at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery's Museum Shop. Dunn Pl, Hobart, Tasmania. TMAG is Tasmania's leading natural, cultural and heritage organisation. It is a combined museum, art gallery and herbarium which safeguards the physical evidence of Tasmania's natural and cultural heritage, and the cultural identity of Tasmanians.
Located adjacent to the visitor information desk, the award-winning Museum Shop offers a range of gifts, home wares, books, toys, jewellery and artisan objects which showcase the museum’s collections and heritage. $1 from each pendant sold will be donated by me to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation to support education in remote Indigenous communities.
Just perfect! Please show your support to the Museum and Art Gallery of Tasmania whenever you're in Tassie!

It cost you nothing and gives so much. When we are kind to others, it's like a breath of fresh air. To acknowledge someone's existence, to smile at them, to engage in conversation with a stranger, to help someone (even when YOU are in a hurry), these are the types of kindness that truly matter.
Kindness takes courage because it opens up pathways where we might have been building walls. This might "feel" safe, but it blocks us from connection which brings balance and joy (along with vulnerability).
Just for today, take time to show a kindness to anyone, anywhere, at any time. It creates a ripple effect that you can't even imagine. It brings beauty to a harsh world.
We need your heart to balance the scales. We need your kindness to refine all the rough edges. Lead with love and it will follow you... #mooninlibra#waxingcrescent#astrology#usethestars#cosmichealth#bekind#payitforward#balance#beauty#love#libra
There is a shift happening where things are about to get REAL. I’m realizing that waiting on the “perfect” moment equates to the fear of unknown as well as wasted time and missed opportunities to grow & be great. That cycle ends now. Whatever it is that you’ve been wanting to do, DO IT. Take the first step because even when you fall, the only place you can go from there is up.✨ #liveyourpassion
Our first week of being open a nice man came into the store and asked if he could leave 10 $1.00 “pay it forwards” for people to use as desired. We thought it was a nice gesture so we put up 10 little $1.00 free donut tags. As people inquired about the wall, it quickly grew. Forgot your wallet? No problem! That damm parking ticket left you low? All good!
This last week, for the first time, the last pay it forward was used and there were no more on the wall. (Over 4 moths later!) The pay it forward sign came down, and we thought it was the end of the streak. On Saturday 8 individual people asked what happened and wanted to leave a dollar to have the wall go back up. So we did! We didn’t really realize that this little sign is a big part of our shop and community. North Minneapolis gets a bad rep. We can first hand tell you that some of the nicest people live in our neighborhood, and this is a great place to live! Thank you to all of our customers that keep this great little wall alive.

Theodore is an extremely gentle, soft spoken, elegant man- a beautiful human being. He lives all the way uptown in a homeless shelter and does not feel safe living there, so every morning he takes the subway downtown and spends his days near Union Square Park. I spent quite some time with Theodore on a beautiful summer day, hanging out on a park bench keeping him company. He has a friend that he travels with that stays on a different street corner, and together they combine their earnings to get something to eat. At the end of the day, they reluctantly travel back to the shelter, where they feel unsafe. (After Haircut):
I handed Theodore the mirror and he said," ohh. OHHH. My goodness! I didn't know. I didn't realize....Wow! I had no idea you were a professional."
