Issue 87- November 20, 2020

Hello Friends-

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

For those that care, I have kept my promise in bringing back the old format this week. *smile.* ---Which, if I must say so myself, I am quite surprised by- (because I feel like I am running on fumes from a project-filled work week (of both my regular full-time gig, and a separate BIG side project for another client). Nevertheless, I am super grateful!

Anyway, I'll keep this portion short- because I promised myself I would go to bed at a decent hour tonight.

As always, 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: Nudiustertian (adj): Of or relating to the day before yesterday


  • ADVICE: “Do small things with great love." - Anonymous


  • MOOD MUSIC: I actually haven't really been listening to much music lately...(although, I do always tend to have some sort of song in my head). The song in this particular moment has been Linda Ronstadt and James Ingram's "Somewhere Out There." 


  • QUARANTINE RECOMMENDATION: I haven't finished it yet; but, my rom-com loving heart is getting super caught up in the "Dash & Lily" series on Netflix. (It's definitely a great feel good watch for the cynical holiday heart as well!)


  • THE MORE YOU KNOW: If you're looking to incorporate more healthy food into your diet, you may find this list of 34 Superfoods extra useful.




Loved this, and decided to share it.


This week's challenge is to:

Think of a way to be a kind human to a stranger.


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!
