Stef and Tim, Canon Digital Rebel

A huge congratulations to Stef & Tim who just had their baby girl, Kadison Violet on Monday! I so look forward to meeting her. {You may remember Stef and Tim from the lurking belly shot only a few weeks ago!}


Thank you for letting me know about the problem in the comments. All fixed now! My site went completely Zen yesterday and didn’t want us to “do” anymore, just be.

Also, thank you for all of your questions. I have some great stuff to think about now and will answer them in bits throughout the coming weeks. I appreciate the inspiration.

“If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.”

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    Welcome little Kadison Violet to this world that is full of wonders and miracles!! 🙂
    Good to hear that you fixed the “do”, it kept me from commenting earlier…
    Can’t wait to see what other colours you are playing with glass beadwise these days… 😉

    Speaking of comments…(:
    Wanted to let you know that the sabrina ward harrison link in your resources page is broken! It needs a period between sabrinawardharrison and com.
    And, thank you for your magical, succulent, beautious, stupendous, supercalifragilisticexpialadotious words and thoughts and pictures. I am always refreshed and my soul is healed when I visit.

    This was posed in the previous comments, but it wasn’t yet answered… What is that lovely shade of red lipstick donned by Marcia with the kiwi necklace?
    It’s wonderful.

    hey there,
    i was googling “land camera, film” and found your january 2004 post saying it’s easy to find 3000-speed polaroid film. i’m wondering where you purchase film for it since i’m having trouble finding it on ebay and such.
    hope to hear from you soon. thanks!
