-The trials & tribulations of entrepreneurship. Sometimes you have to dip back into outside employment. I've been concentrating on the outside world job search (for quite a while now) so there hasn't been much time for editing many videos or even to film them. I'm working on that. There are quite a few videos on Nadia's Kitchen Creations to watch, so please go check them out a few there. Or Check out my Nadia Creates, my DIY channel.

-My latest podcast, Episode #77 - "Calm Amid The Madness"  is out. I won't be putting my podcast on YouTube or Vidme any longer. Very few views, so I'll put my time toward other endeavors, such as selling my Body/Hair Butters. I'm trying it out. Like anything in life, if you don't try you'll never know. I'm working on a very simplified selling system right here on I will still put my animal and nature videos on that channel NadiaDonella.

-My tomatoes are growing. I could be tasting one by next week. What can I say? Growing food makes me happy.☺️

-And finally, If you're looking for prints of my photographs or home decor, please check out my portfolio, under NadiaArtist. Newly added inspirational quotes are also available. Any other photography requests, email me at

Have a great weekend & Friday!

Till next time,


I'm going to be taking a break from uploading videos to Nadia's Kitchen Creations. Garden updates for Nadia Creates will come as things progress. They are not ending but on hold while I get the photography portion of my business going. I stubbornly tried to do everything at once but that was not working. I am so stubborn.

You can check out some of my work on Some of these are available as prints; on mugs; cell phone covers; postcards; clocks and more! If you like what you see or know someone in the market for art, please pass my link along. Much appreciated!

So when one part needs a running start, the other that is on its way will temporarily be put on hold. Concentrating on one art form and ignoring the other for years or a decade is not what I want. Leaving one art form to rot is like chopping off a thumb for me. You can still write but there is a lot of fumbling along the way.

I'm also getting back into my sketching and painting. A piece of me is missing without them.

The book (the first of many) and the written word is still being scribbled whenever an idea comes to me. I still have the remainder of 2017 to get my book out.

The podcast, My Views, Extended will continue but not this week. The plugin is not working here (you can listen on YouTube to previous episodes) even with the updates, so I'm having to investigate that. Time-consuming and extremely annoying.

Have a great Monday & week!
