DIY String Art: Bright Red Balloon


Let It Go.

Those are three short words that make up a powerful phrase. There are so many different things that come to mind when we hear or say those words;

Disney’s Frozen
grieving a loved one
holding on to the past
living a life of fear
anger/resentment for a person (or people)
holding on to what could have been
expectations that others put on us
trying to control situations and outcomes
our plan for our lives (because God has a better one)

Oh my goodness, we could go on and on. One thing we know for sure is that it’s easier to say Let It Go than to actually do it, but we’re working on it. Now that we have our own DIY string art with a bright red balloon and those three little words under it, it’s top of mind. If we can practice letting go a little bit everyday, my will we soar!

Read the tutorial at Momtastic. It’s awesome DIY art because you don’t need a hammer or nails!

Motivational Gifts for Every Day Inspiration

mbartatudios_everything is going to be ok

Happy New Year! How’s your resolutions going so far? Hopefully your still going strong in week 1 of 2015.

This year, we hope to be more optimistic, try not to stress about all the little stuff and strive to be more fully present in our lives on a daily basis. How many times do we just live day-to-day going through the motions, without consciously living in the moment? We do it all the time. We are consumed with the past and the future – so much so, that we forget to live for today.

We understand that there are going to be bad, rough and not so pretty days when we just want to sit on the couch with a pint of ice cream or a bottle of wine to drown away our sorrows and frustrations, but luckily we have you covered from head to toe with 10 ways to stay positive and inspired in 2015 at Momastic.

Tell us how you plan to stay inspired in 2015. We can use all the help we can get.

apples & sunflowers

Jessica from Pink Champagne Events organized this beautiful shoot, inspired by apples & sunflowers. I love the idea!

If you are getting married this fall, this shoot is a great way to get inspirations and ideas. The colors are rich and gorgeous, and the tone is very country chic.
