So there is a lot in there that inspired me! First I have to say I love that Kiki carries glitter with her. I am thinking it could really diffuse some boring or frustrating situations in your day!

Also I think I need some pom poms!

Also consider your little creative work area as a safe space that you can create - no one has to be watching!

Don't take yourself so seriously - remember as Kiki says - It is your one and only life!

Put your hands on your supplies! You can't create anything if you don't!

Make something - share your true self!

Thanks Kiki it was such a joy chatting with you!! xoxo
