Transform your perceptions with the Amenti Oracle The Deck: There is no other way to say it: This is a truly remarkable deck. No matter how often I reach into this deceptively simple realm, the depth of knowledge that emerges within the Amenti Oracle is astonishing, powerful, and transformative in completely unexpected ways, pushing me into multi-layered explorations of spirit and how spirit has the potential to manifest into form each and every day. The clean and beautiful drawings by illustrator Natalee Miller capture the ever-present duality of the elevated...read more

With this current lunar cycle being ripe with change, it’s important to take some time with comfort food and close girlfriends to nourish your spirit. I suggest a ladies night-in with wine and cookies, which gives me the opportunity to introduce you to my favorite gluten-free chocolate chip cookie recipe using browned melted butter.
Last Saturday I welcomed some of my dearest friends and collectors to celebrate my newly expanded studio space at Ironton Distillery’s Artist Studios. Expect to see a lot of new pictures and in-process moments in this new art studio this summer, as I have a large new project that I am looking forward to starting soon. And let’s just say this: I plan on using every inch of this new studio to make this project come to life.
I am thrilled to share with you this month's Inspired Women profile with you on Natacha Vilson, founder of Social Enlite.

I had the pleasure of meeting Natacha when I attended the...
Eating gluten-free on vacation can sometimes be a challenge. But with a little planning, I find it is always doable. And if you are like me, staying away from gluten also ensures a better vacation all around, because who wants to be in pain when they are on vacation? Here is my guide to the best Gluten Free Apres Ski options for Aspen and Snowmass. There are more options for dinner and on the slope, (Cloud Nine is legendary in Aspen Highlands) but this list is sure to crave your hunger needs and then some after an epic day on the slopes. Also to note, my...
I’m excited to share this power smoothie with you all. This is my go to pre-workout smoothie these days. I have always been a big fan of eating a banana before a workout. It’s easy energy and never makes me nauseous during a workout, which some fruits and nut butters seem to do.read more
Do not underestimate the value of the wisdom you receive this cycle simply because it comes into your life quietly. As you walk through this often confusing existence, it can be so easy to mistake glamor for beauty and noise for knowledge, but now you have a precious opportunity to turn away from the edges and toward the center of it all, to the places that bring you comfort, and peace, and calm.read more
Summer may be winding down, but canned wine is here to stay - which means there's no reason to put the rosé away after Labor Day. With so many cute cans of wine to choose from these days, I had no choice but to sample the gamut before hosting gals' night on the patio and share my take on the top five. All of these porch pounders would pair divinely with our watermelon salad and a snack of green olives. Looking to take on a whole meal? Throw some turkey burgers on the grill and voilà! You have dinner. (Fun fact: did you know that canned wine is actually two...read more
I am so excited to share this month’s Inspired Women post of my dear bestie, Mary Allison Wright. There is nothing quite like watching your friends step into their creativity, their power, and the fullest expression of who they are. That is the honor I have had of witnessing first hand with Mary’s ambitious growth and establishment into the wine world and beverage community. Mary’s passion is undeniable and her attention to learning and perfecting her craft has been an inspiration to me and those that know her. But the most inspiring thing about Mary is how she...read more
I've said it before, and I'll say it again - pizza is the answer, year-round, rain or shine. And with an abundance of ripening Palisade peaches at my local farmers' market, I couldn't resist combining the two for a sweet and savory dinner recipe atop my favorite gluten-free pizza canvas: Capello’s Naked Pizza Crust (first tested on this to-die-for fall version last year). This recipe is especially great for summer when you don't need a heavy, saucy dinner weighing you down. There's no tomato sauce involved - just a bounty of fresh ingredients that quell an...read more
We are in the heat of Denver summer, which means it's time to bust out some cute shorts. Bodysuits are equally hot this summer it seems, and I love how well this one from n:philanthropy (similar) lays with shorts, without the bother of trying to keep a t-shirt tucked in. This darling pair of striped linen shorts from Rails has the sweetest belt to be tied in a bow. Top it all off with a neutral statement necklace (this one from David Aubrey is actually reversible) and some Dolce Vita espadrilles! Shop these pieces and more at Ella Blu online and get free...read more
