Where Self-Love Meets Creativity


Hi I’m Mary!

I believe my life’s mission is making other people happy. For twenty years, I have struggled with half a dozen mental illnesses, and I know what the dark side looks like very well. I also know it’s possible to live a happy live not in spite of your struggles, but with them, and want to help as many people push through the dark tunnel to the other side where they’ll land on a pile of glitter.

After quitting my day job of 5 years at a psychiatric rehab center, I started my business, Uncustomary, as a way to integrate creativity and self-love to help other people to learn how to love their lives, choices, and physical bodies. I’m here to share my personal and professional experiences to help you fall head over heels in love with what you’ve already got.

What People Are Saying About Uncustomary…

Sonya Ann

“Uncustomary is basically the best ball of rainbow-sunshiney-glitter I have found on the internet. Everyday the content is off the wall colorful and really something I have grown to look forward to. The content is thought provoking and fun, always creative and definitely diverse. I will be forever grateful for Mary’s awesome book and her kickass attitude while running Uncustomary.”


“Mary is freaking phenomenal. Her Facebook group is one of just a few groups that I actually have all notifications turned on for; the atmosphere in there is so uplifting. Mary has this amazing way of finding positivity and encouraging it in others in a way that’s quite real – none of that blind optimism or forced smiles or anything like that.

Also, I am head over heels over her Uncustomary Babe “Awesome Plan”. I’ve been signed up for 6 or 7 months now, and the surprise goodie package that comes each month is so perfect. Every month I’m astounded and delighted by the stuff she finds; so many of the cute and fun things are self-affirming and body positive, and many leave me wondering where the heck she found them because they’re so unique…Am I gushing? Yep. Is it warranted? Abso-freakin-lutely.”


“Love, Love, LOVE Uncustomary – since the moment I met her at a conference, this woman has inspired me with her radical self-love and body positivity, not to mention her amazing art! EVERYONE needs more rainbows in their life and THIS GIRL delivers!”
