Weekly Reminder 3/31

This is your friendly reminder to:

  • Embrace imperfection — no one and nothing is perfect so why do you keep beating yourself about it? The asymmetrical bits, the town edges, the wonky lines … they tell a story filled with highs and lows, drama and adventure, human-ness and vulnerability.
  • Eliminate judgment — once you embrace imperfection you’ll realize that there is also no room for judgment. We are all, for the most part, trying our best … trying to be good parents, helpful coworkers, productive employees, responsible citizens. You do you … don’t judge others but also don’t judge yourself through other’s eyes. What you are and what you have to give us just as unique as how you do what you do. Just try your best because that’s all that any of us can do.
  • Enable kindness — before you start elsewhere, I implore you to begin with yourself. And then enable it in others…help people be kinder to themselves so the ripple effect can be felt by every life they touch.

You get just one shot at this thing called life.

Stay creative. Give yourself grace.

Hi there, I am Mansi, a self-taught artist based in Silicon Valley. I was a full-time communications professional for two decades, with a desk job and a six-figure salary until I decided to become a mom. Motherhood, as many will attest, can be extremely exhausting, especially in those first years. Art became my quiet place. It restored my sense of self. It gave me renewed energy. It helped me become a better mom. I was led down the path of creation by instinct and “discovered“ in early 2019 by a fellow kindred spirit at one of my art pop-ups who asked me to join her entrepreneurial venture. While I immersed myself full time in the role of CFO and co-founder of this women-led venture supporting local women makers, I missed experimenting with mixed-media. So, in 2021, I've decided to focus my energies full time in finessing my craft, producing more online tutorials and offering in-person art workshops for both adults and children. Thank you for joining me on this adventure as I experiment, learn and continue creating custom pieces of joy.
