New wrap bracelets! Man, I love these!

Hello friends! I'm so excited to introduce these new wrap bracelets to you! I looooovvveee them. 

I don't know about you, but I can get so caught up in the daily whirlwind of to-do's, so in my head, forgetting to pause and savor, or take a moment to identify what I truly need. I think that's why I love love love these new wrap bracelets - sweet, colorful reminders of what to focus on, share, or practice, right there on your wrist. 

These would be super cute layered on top of each other. And how cute are the sweet little jewels and charms? Love! 

To celebrate these new bracelets, I have paired a few with my favorite quotes! May they bring you inspiration, comfort, whatever you need! 


"Where there is love, there is life." – Mahatma Gandhi

This little wrap bracelet's rust colored leather and butterfly charm reminds me of one of my favorite mantras: Love Always Wins! Find this bracelet at Garden Gallery, an online vendor that sells my goodies, here


"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear." – Nelson Mandela 

Love love love the chocolate brown leather that completes this wrap bracelet! And it's accented by the sweetest little dragonfly charm! Find it at Garden Gallery,an online vendor that sells my goodies,  here


"“Hope” is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul – and sings the tune without the words – and never stops at all." 

– Emily Dickinson

This tiny, one-syllable word packs so much in, doesn't it? It is optimism, it is positivity, it is dreaming of what's to come. This bracelet is available at Garden Gallery here

I even love the packaging (and the price. Hello, affordable gifts!). You can find Believe with it's awesome green band here, and Faith with its baby blue wrap here. 

Wishing you all the belief, faith, love, courage, and hope, my friends!!

a little love, love, love.

Been feeling a little quiet lately. With so much movement and transition this year, it feels incredibly good to cultivate a little rest and play. Also, True started at the big boy preschool a couple of weeks ago, which marks what feels like a huge new beginning for all of us. I have so much to share with you. So much. Until then,  I'm savoring all of this settling into a new, relaxed routine. And I'm trusting the quiet will birth a new kind of bloom....one that continues to speak the language of love, love, love.

Here's to love, friends!
This is a new piece for me, and signed/matted prints of it are available here.

Speaking of prints, I'm planning a HUGE shop overhaul next week, which means I'll be retiring about 100 prints from my shop in order to make room for new work. I can hardly believe I have that many images to retire, but really, I do. I do, I do, I do! So, if there's a print you've had your eye on for awhile, now is the time to scoop it up. 

More soon! I have so much to share with you.

bright bloom

(New art! Available here)

“I know you're tired but come, this is the way.” ― Rumi

This piece if for those of us who are awakening, or perhaps reawakening.
Who are unlearning. 
Who are unleashing. 
Who are emerging, and bursting, and releasing.
Who are finding the way to our most full, bright, true selves.

Here's to witnessing, and living our own bright bloom.
This is for all of us.

Two week countdown. Pinch me.

Friends, we're on the two week countdown to my e-course starting, and my heart is just about ready to explode! It feels amazing to be on the verge of doing it all over again, and I'm thrilled at the level of anticipation and excitement that is building from students all over the world. My heart is excited, too. 

I thought I'd share the blooper reel from when we filmed the e-course a few months ago. Honestly, it just might be the funniest thing I've seen of myself, ever. If you're in need of a giggle yourself, watch and giggle. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.


Speaking of filming, this was our "set" - super fun.  It was so fun seeing my old studio transform into a little production studio. So much heart and love and good ol' fashion hard work went into the entire thing. A total team effort. And totally worth it. 

Let art out. Let love in! 

Wanna unleash your joy and learn how to make super fun, gorgeously layered backgrounds - gobs of them?

Yes, yes? Love, love?

Wanna turn those gorgeous backgrounds into gorgeous mantra paintings that speak directly to the call of your heart?

Wanna be a part of an amazing community of seekers, explorers, open hearted souls?

Come join us, friends.  All levels welcomes. Class starts in two weeks, and I'd love to have you.

Below are a few testimonials from previous students. I’m so grateful for their taking the time to send over a little kindness. You can read more testimonials here

“Thank you Kelly. This e-course is so much more than I thought it would be. Delightfully deep, thought provoking & healing.”

“Doors and windows flew open for me, never knew how to express myself in such a deeply positive way.”

“This art class has been way more than I could of ever of dreamed of so far,Thank you Kelly Rae!!”

“This class is amazing and having Lynx [on air student] there was sheer GENIUS!!!! Seeing both of you doing side by side was double value, double fun – thank you.”

“Love loved every moment. I am going back to start all over. It’s like a favorite movie that you never want to end and watch over and over!”

“I am feeling so liberated by this process, I have unearthed some truths I wasn’t fully aware of until I started writing….thank you Kelly Rae for taking us on this journey of self-discovery.”
“Heart opening and oh so worth it.”

“I feel like I am reading a great book and can’t stop, yet I don’t want it to end! Thank you!”

“Boom. Light bulb moment. Thanks again Kelly Rae, I’m loving this so much.”

“There are no rules, total freedom!!!!! I feel so alive!!!!!!!!!!!Thank you!”

“If there is such a thing as ‘too much fun” then I am so guilty.”

“I feel like my eyes are more open and I think less before seizing opportunities. Making space for coffee dates, found out one of my fave authors was speaking in my city this week, and honoring the urge to swim. It’s all connected to what we are learning. Mantras keep surfacing. Cultivating creative wholeness.”
