i’ve been a little lost without my art supplies. i put them in storage back in march thinking they’d be there for about 4 weeks at the most. little did i know that we’d surprise ourselves and buy a fixer upper which meant their 4 week storage journey would turn into a 4 month storage journey.
with all the activity in my life at the moment, i can’t help but wonder if i’d feel less crazy if i had them with me. you know, just as my safety net and my anchor. i didn’t realize i’d miss them like they were an old friend. luckily, just a couple more weeks and they’ll come out of storage (finally!).

 

i’ve been away for the last few days soaking in a bit of the gorgeous oregon coast with a few loved ones. my heart really needed our gathering in big ways, but what it also needed was some creative play around the table with music and glue and friends and art supplies i’ve never used before. i didn’t have my usual stuff so i played with all sorts of cool new stuff that my friends brought. and man, did it feel great. the piece above has a ways to go but it felt so good to take the creative juices out for a date. it’s been awhile and we’re a little rusty in our relationship at the moment:)

 

ali made this piece and it took every piece of me to not steal it from her and take it home. i just love it so.
i have so much to share but for now i wanted to pop in and say hello, and that art really has the power to soothe and rearrange our everyday chaos. i’ve deeply missed that healing perspective….
more soon. i can barely wait to show you some prego belly photo shots that are hilarious and tender and even a little sexy if i do say so myself.

A creative heart/life update

A creative heart/life update

I went to Portland couple of weeks ago and had an experience that felt like a mixture of grief, awakening, and creative bursts all at once. Intense, illuminating, and ultimately really really GOOD. First, the grief. It's been so long since I've been back and I wasn't...
