Hi!! 👋🏼 I'm Mindy,
Most days you'll find me waking up to a cup of kombucha, enjoying breakfast with my toddler, and grabbing some morning snuggles watching Princess Sofia before heading outside and enjoying the warm Michigan weather while we can!
I'm most passionate about experiencing this beautiful planet with my family, and capturing life's special moments. Looking back at photos and videos bring me back to those moments in a way that my memory can't.
I love listening to music, ok, blaring music 🎶, when I have an empty house or car! I have to get my daily jam on! Although, I admit I find myself adulting more now and listening to NPR. (When did that happen?!)
Hanson is my fav! I jam to alternative, pop, and grungey rock.
My favorite chill playlists on Spotify are Piano in the Background, Stress Relief, and Lullaby Baby.
I'm mostly known as Mom, but I have a few nicknames that I treasure. My Grandpas called me Mindota and Mindy-Pooh. Most people call me Min, Mind, or Melinda.
True or False? I was named after a soap opera character.
Let me know what you think in the comments!
Thanks for listening! 💕
I love creating these watercolor northern lights pieces, and I get so excited when I see sales come through for these prints because it means it sparked joy in someone else, too!! It feels like a shared connection with someone I have never met!

Thanks for supporting your fellow small businesses this holiday season and always!
You can always tell what season it was when I stocked up on Bath & Body Works soap. This year it was summer, and I am loving it. I’ll take all the ocean and sunset scents to get me through the winter! Honestly, I don’t know how they put summer in a bottle, but I love all of them!
As much as I love summer, winter’s beauty is something I look forward to every year. The individuality of snowflakes is truly incredible, and the landscape after they all come to rest together is magical!
My daughter got her tonsils and adenoids removed this morning, and I'm so thankful for the care she recieved from all of the amazing doctors and nurses at @mottchildren!
Everyone was kind, thoughtful, calming, and went above and beyond to make this a comfortable experience for her. A magic wand, bubbles, coloring pages, and therapy dog were just a few things they brought to help bring her comfort.
I didn't do so well seeing her in the recovery room when she was waking up from anesthesia. Dad swooped in and was there with her while I sweated through my clothes and had my head by my feet trying not to pass out. 🤦🏼♀️ So embarrassing. (It's not the first time it's happened, but I never know when it's going to strike.) Anyway, they took great care of me too, and even when I felt fine they had me in the wheelchair just in case 😆
Not enough words could express my gratitude to her team today; I'm just so thankful.
If you swipe to the end you'll see the chart we made together so she can just point to what she wants!
Happy Friday!! Today's my Mama's birthday, and I'm taking her to see @hanson for the first time!! I'm probably more excited than she is, but I think she's going to love it! She used to be a major concert go-er, so I'm excited to experience this with her!
This custom piece was so freeing and fun to paint!
If you'd like a custom watercolor northern lights piece for your home, or as a gift for someone else, let me know! I'd love to paint something for you!
Hope you're having a wonderful Saturday!
Earlier I tried to play Lego (I'm told plural is lego, not Legos, by my self-proclaimed "hipster dad" husband) with my daughter and was told that I should wait my turn 😳 Don't worry, I'll keep trying! Lol
Sending you all love on this Friday! What are you up to this weekend? Benn and I were going to see some friends this weekend, but it's not going to work out, so we're going to have another working weekend learning more Illustrator!
This pillow is just a pillow, until it's something more. Swipe to see what I mean!
My parents are pretty amazing realtors, and their thoughtfulness is SO inspiring.
They've helped so many people find their new place they call home, and I'm honored to be part of their closing process!
I designed this pillow not knowing their client, and she said it matched one of her bed spreads perfectly!
This is why I do what I do!
It bring me joy knowing that my artwork sparks happiness in others!
I love making these personalized home signs for my parents' real estate clients! My parents are AMAZING at helping people and families find their home. For them, it's about making a connection, focusing on their clients, and making the stressful home buying process a flippin' BREEZE! (I know because they helped me and my husband find our home when I was pregnant, and it was so incredibly stress free!) They've also helped our family and friends, and the compliments are endless!
I'm honored to be part of their clients' experience by hand lettering their family name and sending off these prints as closing gifts! My mom is so sweet about sharing how each of her clients react! If she tells me they cried, I immediately get tears 😭 It's so special, and definitely one of my favorite parts of this lettering journey!
Head to my bio for my Etsy shop link to get a personalized home sign for your home, or as a house warming gift for someone you love, personally hand lettered by me!
I've been playing around with monoline florals recently, aaaand I love them!
I made this floral into a stamp and played with @abbie_uproot Everything Watercolor brushes. 😍
We're enjoying this beautiful weather today. I've been feeling my bad energy being replaced with good energy all afternoon! 😎 🔋 🙌🏼 I just want to stay outside the rest of the day! What's your go-to meal for your family when you don't want to spend much time cooking in the summer?
Where are my Lake Michigan lovers at?! This design is available in my RedBubble shop! Get it printed as a sticker for your car, pillow for your beach house, mug for your morning coffee, or nearly anything else you could ever want or need! If you want it on something you don't see, just ask and I'll see if I can get it for you! I'm BellaLouDesigns over there.
