Issue 95- January 15, 2021

Hello Friends-

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

I'm in the midst of a big detox, and am only really only online for work and the barest of minimum things- so, I don't have a lot to say here in this particular portion of the newsletter this week...

But, 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: Irenic (adj): favoring, conducive to, or operating toward peace, moderation, or conciliation


  • ADVICE: "Do all things with love." 



  • QUARANTINE RECOMMENDATION: I really enjoyed binge watching the short series, "Lupin," on Netflix this past week. I highly recommend it for people who like mystery and suspense. (And, it's only 5 episodes- so, it's super easy to knock out in a week...or, a day *smile*)


  • KITCHEN CHRONICLES: I stumbled upon this 5 Minute Cake Recipe, and thought it might be a fun thing to try. Let me know if you end up making one!


  • LIFESTYLE TIP: Do you know your sleep chronotype? I recently learned about this, and found it to be quite fascinating.



Remember to protect your peace, and to protect your joy.


This week's challenge is: to make a 5 minute cake, and send me a picture! *smile* 


I will be taking a bit of a mini pause on my community activations as I gear up for some new projects that will taking up a lot more of my bandwidth. But, be on the lookout for some (very sporadic) events here and there. (As doing these events, and sharing in community really does bring me joy.)

 And, 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!
