Jubilee Flea has a little brick + mortar home!
Starting Wednesday, May 10, Jubilee Flea will be taking over an upstairs room at Belle Jar Design in historic Clifton, Virginia!
This space allows me to offer the large vintage pieces I find for home and holiday plus old paper, fun things to color + my little artistic creations. You’ll find it all in this one little space that promises to bring #CelebratingTheCreativeJourney to life!
Belle Jar Design is located in a little old yellow house (dubbed “The Pink House” because years ago an owner painted it pink and the name just stuck) and offers unique vintage furniture pieces and accessories. Co-owners, Heather Taylor and Laura Jane Cohen have long shared a passion for seeking out and refurbishing furniture and vintage items.
You’ll find us all at
Belle Jar Design
7137 Main Street
Clifton, Virginia 20124

Went to another flea market over the weekend and found this portfolio of mid-century French industrial drawings! These are *gorgeous* and suitable for framing. I’ve started posting to the store here. #CelebratingTheCreativeJourney with #FrenchEphemera
Last year while on my beach vacation, I created most of the drawings for my coloring journal that was released last fall. Fast forward to today … I was just interviewed by the local paper, The Island Packet, about my book and creativity! One of my best cheerleader/friends set it up. Link to the video and print article coming later today or tomorrow. Link to purchase the coloring journal here. To celebrate, I’m taking $5 off each copy through July 4th! Talk about things coming full circle … #CelebratingTheCreativeJou
Spent 3-1/2 days at a music festival. I’d never done anything like that before. Ever. Spent time in shady spots drawing, listening, eating and even a little shopping. Saw bands I had never heard of before. Even danced a little. Did *lots* of people watching. It was like Halloween and Mardi Gras all rolled into one. When I was sitting on my fabulous beach blanket with art supplies all around me, several people asked to see what I was doing. Two people even asked if they could draw in my book. Of course I said yes.

Today I’m kicking it old school…using triangles, a straight edge and ruler like in drafting class years ago. For weeks I’ve been working on a client project that involves drawing 53 locations around the world. Learning so much about each place as I do research. About a quarter of the way thru the project…💛 #TrinaDraws365 #CelebratingTheCreativeJourney

As Winter Storm Jonas dumps over 20 inches of snow (and counting), I’m spending a lot of time in my cozy studio drawing and coloring and journaling. If you’re one of the 70 million Americans watching the snow fall, maybe you’re doing the same thing. So I’m sharing this FREE snowday coloring page pdf with you! Just click on the link above. Would love to see what you do with it. Post your finished piece on Instagram using #JFcoloring And quick, print it out before the power goes out! #celebratingthecreativejourneyinthesnow
I was interviewed about the coloring journal for the school newspaper at my first alma mater The George Washington University (my second was The Corcoran School of Art). This is where the art career began with a minor in graphic design (while getting a degree in applied mathematics!) Talk about #celebratingthecreativejourney You can read the full interview here.
