Projects; Starving For Creativity


I’ve been an artist for as long as I can remember, but not in the traditional paint to canvas type, although I enjoy painting my skill level is about the same as my 6 year old. I have always had a huge colorful imagination and a dreamer mind to create more and continuously. I am always starving for creative time. Always dreaming and thinking of the next project or idea.

This idea has been in the back of my mind for years but I only started putting real time into it a few months ago. Once I started it was a snow ball of creative energy and ideas. But I need some balance and help. My best friend Brooke is also a photographer but also has some other amazing skills; like keeping me on track and is more of a researcher and good at some back end stuff for this new business.

Like all my logo’s they have a lot of backstory and key elements that have meaning. making it personal. The main mermaid is a mix of myself and Brooke, and the kids are our tribe of children. The brown haired mermaid is Haidyn and the merboy Ryker. The baby is Elinore, pink haired mermaid is Amelia, and the blonde Sassy mermaid is Adeline. We went with a mermaid theme mostly because my love for mermaids, ocean, and living in Hawaii.

This is a clothing and home goods online store geared towards Moms and children! Check it out: www.mermaidsandminis.com


Some of the clothing options we have are leggings (my FAV!) They are a little thicker because they double as yoga pants/capri and have the thicker waist band (perfect to help with shape! I’ve had 3 babies and need a little extra tummy support, so I LOVE this feature). T-shirts, tanks, and hoodies. We also have a line of matching sports bras, so if you use the leggins as active wear you can match the tops and bottoms. You can also coordinate, most of our Aloha line coordinates with the colors! Same with the mermaid and scales lines.

 Here is the Surf Board Line! Also available in a matching tote, kids leggings, and SHOWER curtain!

Kids Leggings!!
Cool thing about these, they are a tad thicker which is so useful if your kids are accident prone like mine. They hold up a lot better then some other brands Ive gotten over the years, plus they are cute, plus I can coordinate and match with them.

 Kids leggings, OMG. For real, my kids are going NUTS over these.

Home Goods. I want cool stuff for my house, but sometimes it’s hard to find unique stuff that not everyone has. When designing a lot of this stuff I would sit on my couch or in the bathroom and think about what items I wanted and what I would actually use, because lets face it; I shop online a lot and I don’t use at least 10% of the stuff I buy. So I created shower curtains, bags (tote bags, duffel bags and coming soon beach bags!!), towels both beach size and regular, pillows/pillow cases, and tumblers because I love reusable cups of all types. I constantly have my water/tea with me and I need lids because #momlife.


We also have a photographer line, because we wanted some awesome shirts but couldn’t find them anywhere!

 My fav is “what the F stop”
