Welcome to Chickadee — a place to feel encouraged, inspired and celebrated.

You’ll find stories about creative women, artists and entrepreneurs who took the leap of faith to pursue their lives’ passion, who are living true to who they really are.

I’ll share the people, places and things that inspire to me to create, and how I replenish my soul when I need a boost, meaning there will be a lot of talented crafters, dogs, nature, books, pop culture and gardening.

In a world where creatives are constantly asked to change to fit in, I want Chickadee to be a place where we are all encouraged to sing our own song, to listen to our own voices, and follow our dreams. My wish for you is that you do one thing every day that makes your soul feel free and your life “your own“.

Success

To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people
and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child,
a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson
