What Would You Do - Cellphone Usage


My hope is this message rings true to a growing epidemic behind the wheel of our cars. Let's stand together fighting for the safety of our roadways and the safety of our attention for the needs of our children.

I am so happy you are here. May the Lord speak to you today encouraging you to shine a light before you advancing His Kingdom.

Remember you are loved, you are amazing and you are His!

Here is a blog post I wrote in 2015 in regards to cellphone behind the wheel, enjoy... http://ashleysartcloset.blogspot.com/2015/12/teamates.html

A Morning Treat: Annie's Cinnamon Rolls


So often we get busy in the hustle of life we forget ourselves. Now, I know we are not called to over indulge as self centered beings, but we must remember to treat ourselves. This can be by the simplest things, like such in this video. On a regular day serving my family, I tossed a pan of Annie's Cinnamon Rolls in the oven. Treating ourself isn't just by food. Other ways could be by a walk at a nature trail, listening to the birds from our front porch, watch a youtube video, spending time in the word or even a hot bath, etc. This keeps us present, creating us into well rounded self discipline, balanced servants. Here's to your day doings all for His glory.

Stay shiny,
Ashley Murphy

A Day of Work in the Life of an Artist


work day artist


This vlog provides a small glimpse inside one of my work days. From school drop off, getting ready for the day, book reading filming, creating the "you were made to shine" for this channel, tending to the elder dog-my co worker, watching the rain and school pick up. The absolute inside look of a flexible artist life. May you be inspire for what your work day looks like. We all have them being a service to others. Be inspired. Be you. Shine.

Are you an artist?
Do you work from home in any manner?
How do you stay encouraged?

Much love,
Ashley

Unicorn Frappuccino

unicorn frappuccino

Calorie Free! Unicorn Frappuccino! You guessed it, another watercolor. Come with me as I show you this creative process. I hope you enjoy watching this process and enjoy the freeness of it. May you be inspired to create your very own. So often, I am told "you are so talented" "I could never do that"! I am here to tell you, "yes, you can". Countless times, I sit down with friends and family to create something as say this project. By the end, I am surprised and so are they at what they are able to create. We are all different and meant to be. Therefore our creations are all going to look slightly different. Believe me it took me years to get where I am. Art has been my passion since a child, in more then one form or another, but I will be honest. Not always have, I like what I create. Often, I see someone else's creation I love more. And even tried to duplicate others work. It just doesn't happen that way. I've learned a lot about myself and others though the years of creating. One being of myself, once I accepted, say my hand writing in my artwork, I could move forward enjoying the process. One of others, they can create artwork too, really well actually. I encourage you to get an art journal, color pencils, watercolor or markers and create you a Calorie Free Unicorn Frappuccino. Don't stop there. Continue creating other things you feel inspired by, but remember yours will not look like the person next to you. Embrace the process watching how free you are.

Please like, comment, share and or subscribe. I am very thankful for your time viewing this process. And would love to hear from you about your own creative process.

Have a wonderful day and remember to shine,
Ashley Murphy
