Happy Friday Friends!

"Welcome back to "The Cre8tive Life!"- your weekly newsletter full of lifestyle tips, smiles, and cool things to check out

This past week was full of working on some projects with my new client, doing a little change-up with my hair, hanging out at the Spyscape Museum, and going rogue at a networking paint night (ie, not painting what I was supposed to in the group ūüėā).¬† We'll just say, I was definitely glad to have some much needed creative play in the midst of all of the madness-lol.

I am still on a bit of a social media hiatus (aside from the occasional scroll through the timelines)... But, you can always feel free to check out my pictures, video highlights, stories, and other life musings on my personal instagram page (@e101) and official brand page (@thecre8tiveartisan) throughout the week---I try to post some of my randomness there.

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

Have an AMAZING weekend and upcoming week!



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

  • FAVORITE WORD: Latibule (noun): A a cozy, safe, hidden away place. One where a soul can cocoon themselves and find comfort and solace. A¬†latibule¬†is a necessity if one is to keep their sanity intact and their heart strong.


  • ADVICE:¬†‚ÄúYou worry about the sail on the boat after you plug the holes that are taking on water." - Anonymous


  • MOOD MUSIC:¬†In a bit of a reflective state, and tapping into the beautiful and classic cover of "Over the Rainbow" that¬†Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo Ľole did.


  • RANDOM RECOMMENDATION:¬†Here is a list of 45 of "the best" Netflix shows to watch in 2020.


  • COOKERY MAGIC:¬†Hopefully this won't be of any use...but, you can CLICK HERE to see how expert cooks say you should stock your house for a potential long-term quarantine.


  • LIFESTYLE TIP:¬†¬†THIS is an EXCELLENT article that comprehensively breaks down EVERYTHING you need to know about the Coronavirus infection AKA as COVID-19-from symptoms, to prevention, to what do if you've travelled/are travelling to an affected area. It is also being updated as the situation develops.¬†¬†



Running a bit late today...but, I wanted to share a little inspirational graphic on something I have been learning and reading about- the importance of having a "Growth Mindset." I hope it encourages you as well!


This week's challenge is to think about a way you can shift your mindset around something that is holding you back.
