Hi! I'm Nichole. I'm a wife, mom, and a serial mompreneur. I am a published author (The 10-Minute Refresh for Moms), course creator, empowerment coach, and artist. I have been helping moms feel relief and joy while overcoming stress and pain for several years now.
I never thought of myself as an artist, although I've always been very creative. In August of 2020, my entire life turned upside down. My sweet 20-month old daughter, Emberly Joy, drowned in our pool.
The grief and devastation have been life altering in many ways.
Soon after her passing, I found a facebook ad for a class on how to make resin geodes. I was mesmerized. Something deep inside me urged me to sign up.
Here I am 8 months later feeling so much relief and joy from the art therapy that epoxy resin has brought to me. I know and feel my baby with me as I create art that heals my soul and helps spark joy in others and keeps my baby's ember glowing. Each piece is unique and helps me create a legacy that will live on long after I do. I love that my daughter still sparks joy through my art and transformation.
I now create unique art pieces, coach, and help moms find pearls in their pain. I feel my daughter with me the most when I am at my happiest. Sharing her light with you brings me great joy. It is a win-win-win.
Every month I give 10% of the profits from this website to a non-profit of my choice, so we can keep giving to those in need. For May-June I have chosen Square One, a local organization for victims of domestic violence.
Here is a photo of Emberly Joy at 18 months old, two months before she passed:
Here is a beautiful photo created by a friend, Amber Wilson, who creates gorgeous work from photos. Emberly has appeared to me many times in this form or butterfly and I adore this photo!
