About


Kristal NortonHello beautiful soul! I’m Kristal Norton, and I’m happy you have found your way here.

At a glance, this site may look like it’s all about art journaling and creativity. But really? It’s about YOU. You becoming your true self, embracing your heart’s path, and rediscovering your creative potential.

It’s about you living the happy, fulfilling, creative life you’ve been yearning for.

And ya know what? You’re already on the right path. Just by reading this, right now, you’re giving yourself the gift of time… savory time just for yourself. And you’re worth it.

It’s easy to get caught up in the daily grind and all the responsibilities of parenting, being a spouse, and your job. Life becomes so busy – often taking care of others – that you feel like you’re on auto-pilot. You start neglecting your deepest dreams and desires – putting them on the back burner until you start forgetting who you are. Or who you used to be.

And you miss her… that energetic, fiery woman within you, the one who knows who she is, what she wants, and stands bravely in the face of her fears, experiencing life with eyes wide open.

You are that woman. She’s just waiting for you to gently embrace her.

She craves being nurtured with the same love and time you give others in your life. She urges you to remember that you are just as important. And those creative yearnings you haven’t answered yet? That’s what’s going to bring you back to her. Back to you.

When you accept the whole, beautiful woman you are… the woman within you that longs to show up, the one who doesn’t care what others think of her, the one who – most importantly – stops blindly listening to her inner critic and starts believing in her magnificence… magic happens.

  • You’ll start having the courage to express your unique self without reserve.
  • You’ll start waking up eagerly anticipating each new day. And above all…
  • You’ll start trusting your intuition and become clear about life decisions, because you’ll remember who you are.

As an artist, inspirationalist, teacher, and creative life coach, my approach to gaining all this and more in your life focuses on learning to unearth your creative spirit and setting it free.

You feel the yearnings, the whispers to create because it’s one way to reconnect with your spirit and begin listening to your heart.

It’s not about the supplies you use or the techniques you learn: It’s about the connection you make with yourself through the process. It’s about growth, trust, and self-compassion. It’s about exploring and finding your own path. It’s about opening up for self-exploration. It’s about believing in yourself.


Think of it as a journey back to yourself, with me {and creativity} as your guide.


Through inspiring articles & videos, books, break-through e-courses, creative tools such as art journaling, and one-on-one guidance… I can help you awaken to your true creative self, and give you the courage and support to start living the life you’ve been craving.

It’s your time to shine.

“One life on this earth is all that we get, whether it is enough or not enough, and the obvious conclusion would seem to be that at the very least we are fools if we do not live it as fully and bravely and beautifully as we can.” ~Frederick Buechner

So who am I?

As a mother of three, a wife, and creative business owner, I understand how busy our lives get. I also understand that taking the time for creative play and to listen to our Soul is essential or else we risk feeling like we’re not living the life we were meant to.

I’ve been there. It took a career change – after feeling empty and lost, even when from the outside, I was successfully selling my art and being featured in magazines and on TV – to make me slow down, take time for authentic creative expression, and truly look inside to discover my true self and what it is I’m really meant to do. And that’s to live by my innate magnificence; while showing others how to do the same through the magic of creativity – a hidden power we ALL possess.
