The Mistake Artist: Part One

themes: creativity, just for fun

I am thrilled to share a brand new story with you after months of, daydreaming and writing. The Mistake Artist is my very first two-part story and I think you will love it. It features a little girl who is a bit of a perfectionist about her art, and a magical being who takes the girl's "mistakes" and showcases them as things of beauty in her faraway realm of magical beings. Tune in next time for part two of this story and hear how Em learns to reframe her mistakes as opportunities.

If your tiny person wants to share a story they've written, please send photos or recordings of it to I LOVE to see their artwork, stories, and anything else they'd like to share.

BIG THANKS to the listeners who provided sound effects used in the story: AYDA, NORA, EMMA, LILY, CHARLIE, GABE, GEMMA, and ZACH!
