Happy First Friday in May to all my magical mermaids and manifestors near and far! I am very excited to share with you this week’s #ARTISTofTHEWEEK – DEREK CARPENTER aka ART OF ONE! Derek and I met years ago when we were both just starting our careers in the Colorado festival/art scene. I remember the day we met at Boulder Vapor House (BVH) like it was yesterday. At the time I was working as a Social Media Strategist & Event Production Assistant for BVH. I helped coordinate live painters for the very first “Hill Block Party” and he was one of them (see pic below). It is truly amazing to think about how much we both have advanced in our professional careers since the day we met. I feel we are both living testament to what a little hard work and focus can bring to your career. I am so proud to call him one of my friends for life. He has supported my vision for my Manifestation Media class series by attending my recent class at Bodywork Bistro on Instagram Management. Today I return the community love by showcasing a few of his latest works below and offering my fans a discount code for 20% OFF ALL ORDERS FOR THE NEXT MONTH on his new website store: www.artofone.org.

This year for my 24th Birthday I had an amazing jeweled crown made by my good friend Addie Pitre. The stunning finished work of art is titled “Follow Your Path”! This gorgeous piece of blessed intentional wear has a third eye stone of Labradorite and it has both Lapis and Moonstone accents. The many sacred feathers attached have all come to me over the last 6 months each one holding incredible power. The experience of wearing this piece for the first time today was overwhelmingly special. Many thanks to my beautiful friend Tammy Moore for taking these amazing photos of me this weekend at Chautauqua Park in Boulder, CO! Much love and best wishes to all of my amazing friends and family for a beautiful fall 2016 full of love, inspiration, and magic!! Make sure to take a peek at the list of wearable fashion elements below with links to each of the designers online stores and social sites included.
Today I am so excited to be sharing my latest passion in fashion! I have not done a post on fashion in a long time, but the ladies at Grateful Girls were so kind as to feature me on there social pages last week I had to return the favor! Grateful Girls is an online boutique that sells beautiful Jerry Garcia Artwear. The many fashion scarves available on their web store are all inspired by the watercolor artwork of Jerry Garcia, legendary guitarist of The Grateful Dead.
Many younger fans of the famous bands jammin’ music may not know that Jerry Garcia was not only a musician but also famous for his lush watercolor paintings. The Grateful girls collection currently features 17 different scarves each printed with a unique part of Jerry’s colorful nature inspired artwork.
To Grateful Girls: I would like to say thank you for empowering women to feel beautiful through wearable art! Keep up the amazing work and I can’t wait to see what is next from this fabulous fashion collection!

These Colorado locals continue to amazing me through the exquisite production of quality custom designs as well as having done some EPIC collaborations with artist such as Kurt Redeker Artist/Owner of Knew Conscious gallery in Denver. Knew Conscious has since its open built its reputation for having extraordinary opening reception parties/exhibitions of artwork by visionary artist such as Amanda Sage, Android Jones, and Martina Hoffmann. I really think that it is this reinvented idea that we can have such visionary designs carried over into fashion that I like Meant clothing so much. It is a truly special thing to have a piece of artwork you love transformed into something you can wear as an everyday article of clothing and these guys are doing it right!!
