Michelle captured our three pups with magical perfection! She worked with us until the proportions were just right. She used colors from our home. Home-run Christmas gift for my family!
My adorable child has high anxiety and now feeds her worries to the What If Monster. He is perfectly squishy and huggable. Love him.
These character bookmarks are the perfect addition to your reading area! I bought them for my son and had to order a second set for myself!
The character bookmarks are perfect items to add to the books we enjoy donating to our local library! Spread the love with these adorable bookmarks! ❤️🎉📚
Our classroom Whatif Monster plushy is made of high quality fabric, easy to wipe clean and is the perfect size. He sits in a visible spot in the room to remind children to hand over their fears and try even when they feel anxious! We have read the book over and over again and the students never tire of this important message.
I was gifted a signed book by my sister, who said it was a must read. I originally at down one night after tucking the kids to bed thinking I would read it cover to cover. I was not prepared for the heart to heart conversations that would take place between the author and myself as I read each page. A night turned into two days, which turned into four. My mind kept drifting off into lengthy conversations that my heart had needed to have for some time now. I’ve been on a healing journey for four years now. I’ve been in weekly therapy sessions, group chats and support groups online. I can firmly say that those conversations did not ignite the same response I experienced while reading this book. I have read and re-read chapters and sections since first picking it up. I made a pinky promise with someone I’ve never met. This book healed parts of my heart and soul that I didn’t even know needed mending. I absolutely recommend this book to everyone.
I recently had the pleasure of reading Michelle Nelson-Schmidt's new book, "Life is as MAGICAL as you Make it," and I must say that it was an incredibly moving and thought-provoking experience. This book has the power to touch your heart and leave a lasting impact.
Michelle's words are nothing short of beautiful. Her storytelling is captivating, drawing the reader into a world where magic and wisdom coexist. The central message of the book, that "Life is about loving yourself...you are enough...that you matter just because you exist," is both timeless and universal. I was particularly touched by her insights, such as "Thoughts can inspire" and "When you start to quiet your brain and listen to the whispers in your heart, incredible magical things begin happening in your life."
In a world often filled with self-doubt and external pressures, this reminder that joy doesn't need to be earned is incredibly valuable. Michelle's messages of self-worth and the pursuit of happiness are ones that everyone can benefit from hearing. She sought out to remind all of us - young and old - of our intrinsic worth. It's a beautiful reminder that we are all enough, and that life's magic is there for us to embrace. I'm grateful she wrote it and grateful to have had the opportunity to read it ... and now I'll gift it to others to benefit from as well.
Michelle's pet portraits perfectly capture the essence and spirit of your pet! She makes sure you are 100% happy every step of the process, allows for modifications if needed, and delivers a magical product!
I cannot wait to receive my original MNS artwork of my puppy, BoBo! Communication has been great with Michelle. She is working to create a special piece for me that we will enjoy forever! I will post again once I receive it! <3
A wonderfully real exposure to another's experience. I was able to relate to so many experiences Michelle shared and offered so much hope. I left this book feeling a sense of confidence and drive to believe in myself and my goals, dreams.
My husband and I love our morning coffee in these sturdy, magical mugs. Great gifts for family, friends and couples-workers!
We love the What If Monster story and this plush is just adorable! I love that he has a smile on his face and how soft he is.
Read this in 2 quick sittings on a plane. Very inspiring and I loved the synopsis of her different children's books and how they can even relate to adults! Just the positive pep talk we all need at times!! Must read!
I am loving this book. I haven't finished it yet just a couple chapters left. Excited to finish it.
Highly recommend this book! The conversational style makes it different than others. It’s a light easy read and love the message
An inspirational memoir you won't be able to put down. Get this book, I promise you won't regret it. It's like getting a hug from a book! 🌈
Had the previously published editions of JJ and Cordelia but I'm excited to have the updated editions AND finally add Bob to my collection.
I'm not quite sure what type of book to label this. It isn't quite a self-help book, I wouldn't actually call it an autobiography of Michelle either. It is a great self reflection of her that allows the reader to explore themselves to a deeper level. Having children that grew up listening to and then reading MNS books I was inspired to read this one. If anyone is in need of a little pick-me-up or a reminder that the dark times don't always stay dark, then this is a good quick read for that.
An easy read that made me rethink how and what brings joy to my life! This book was one that I couldn’t put down as I wanted to know more about Michelle and how her tips could help me. Everyone needs a little joy, pick this one up today!
I’m so excited to own my very own original art from the lovely and talented Michelle Nelson-Schmidt! Especially her adorbs new puppy! This is on display on my fridge and it makes me smile when I see it!
