calling all creative women entreprenuers: are you ready to fly?


{journal by the talented Christine Mason Miller}

You already have your wings. You just need to fly.

I love that.

It’s absolutely true.

Joseph Campbell quote big question

I am loving reading the amazing ebook from sweet-as-honey artist Kelly Rae Roberts. It’s called Flying Lessons, The Whole Shabang.

I have been wanting to get it for years, and I finally took the plunge to invest in myself and my creative business. And, as soon as I did, doors started flying open for me.

When you set an intention to learn more, and grow, and make a difference through your life, your art, and your business — the world responds with opportunities.

“When you follow your bliss… doors will open …”

Joseph Campbell

First off, let me just swoon over how beautiful this colorful ebook is. It was designed by fellow artist Jessica Swift who creates these rainboots with inspirational hidden messages.


Aren’t they so fun? I love the aqua and orange color combo.
