Hello Friends-

"Welcome back to this week's episode of, "The Cre8tive Life"- your weekly newsletter full of lifestyle tips, smiles, and musings.

This past week has been quite an intense one work wise for me. I had two of my big virtual event projects that I was producing back-to-back, and, am looking forward to catching up on lots of sleep this weekend. Aside from that, I haven't done too much else- except for try to stay warm.

How are things going with you? I'd love for you to drop me a personal line and let me know what's been going on in your world!

As always, I'm sending lots of love, hugs, and prayers to you all!!!


Random stories, pictures, video highlights, and other life musings can be found on my personal instagram page (@e101) and official brand page (@thecre8tiveartisan) throughout the week (when/if I end up posting anything).

*And, if you have missed any previous newsletters, feel free to check out the archive section on my website: HERE.

Continued prayers that you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy 

(mentally & physically) out there 💗.


My weekly (random) compilation of some of my favorite "cre8tive" things that I want to share:

  • FAVORITE WORD: Tittynope (n): a small quantity of anything left over, whether a few beans on a dinner plate, or the dregs at the bottom of a cup


  • ADVICE: "W.A.T.C.H." your words, actions, thoughts, character, and habits. ~Jim Kwik


  • MOOD MUSIC: This week's feature comes from Snarky Puppy and Chantae Cann with "Free Your Dreams." 


  • QUARANTINE RECOMMENDATION: I watched absolutely nothing this past week, but I have had  Jim Parson's "Hollywood" on my radar for a long while- and hope to tap into it at some point over the weekend.




  • FEEL GOOD SHARE: This inspirational story of Principal Darby, and his love for his students totally warmed my heart.




This week's challenge is:

A choose your own adventure pick. 


I am currently taking a pause on my community activations as my current bandwidth is a bit limited with work projects. 

 Also, if you haven't heard me say it lately, I want to thank you for your support and readership. It means a lot that you take time out of your day to take in my  little musings and life shares!

Lastly, if you happen to have any future topic ideas, or come across any events I should know about, PLEASE feel free to send those along my way. I always LOVE discovering and learning about new things! 

Have a great day, and be sure to take time to enjoy your life!
