Friday, January 8

We stand for love! Happy Friday, friends. 

This weekend, let’s…. Find sacred in the ordinary
Seek beauty
Choose joy!

Have a wonderful one, friends! 

I’m heading to CA tomorrow for a girls weekend and then to Disney with the fam. This captures my anticipation perfectly.

Saturday, January 9

Have you ever arrived at the airport for your flight only to be informed that your flight was YESTERDAY? Friends, such is my life. Or actually such is my brain. I can’t even. Anyway, here’s to trusting this journey to CA and hoping for a standby seat. I cannot believe I did that!

Sunday, January 10

Made it to CA for a weekend with some dear friends. Grateful for that standby seat and the truth of trusting. And friendship. Whenever I’m with these dearest I always think of that amazing quote: A friend is one to whom one may pour out the contents of one’s heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that gentle hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.

– George Eliot

While I’m down here in CA, I wanted to announce my new exciting partnership with Tapestry Fair, a producer of EXQUISITE hand-painted needlepoint canvases for independent needlepoint shops across America. All of my needlepoint canvases are debuting this weekend at The National Needlearts Tradeshow in San Diego. You guys, I’m super super excited about this. This photo shows one of the hand painted needlepoint canvases ready for a stitcher to do their thing. I can’t wait to see one completed. OMG!

Monday, January 11

One of my favorite quotes. Here’s to finding the sacred in the ordinary everydayness of our lives. Happy Monday, friends. Xxo


Dream big in the moonlight, dear one…

As we grow up and older, the weaves of our intersections hold wider, deeper meaning. Life is happening in our individual worlds outside of our intersections. Hard stuff. Good stuff. Confusing stuff. And every now and again it’s just so good for the soul to be with those who may not live nearby in the geographic sense but who certainly are my heart’s closest neighbors. I am so grateful for their witness and also to witness their unfolding, through all the seasons, ebbs and flows. This year I want to show up more for my friends, for all the people who live far away but who reside in my heart and in my soul. Xxo.

Missing this snorty sweetheart. 

This week is the @americasmartatl in Atlanta. It’s the winter show where all my new products debut. I’m super excited to have lots and lots of goodies in the
@demdaco showroom, including this gorgeous large wooded JOY piece, new mugs, bags, Angels, and even really cool socks. Retailers, See all of the Kelly Rae Roberts Collection with DEMDACO in Bldg 2, Ste 685 and now in the
@onecoastsocial showroom, 18th Floor, Ste 1837J. I also have many many goodies (tote bags, journals, calendars, and more) over in the LANG showroom.
? Although I’m currently in CA with my family (Disney!), a bit of my heart, enthusiasm, and spirit is in Atlanta this week. I really love this part of what I offer to the world. Xxo


Being down in California to spend some time with my tribe, I have a lot of gratitude for my friends, my soul sisters, my confidants. Here’s to our nearest and dearest!!

Wednesday, January 13


Friends, with the trials of travels, staying present and connecting back to love is super important to me. This piece from the True® by Kelly Rae Roberts collection reflects that for me. Here’s to love, all around the earth. 

We’re having one of those easy days here at one of the happiest place I know. Super grateful for the CA sun, warmth, and magic. Xxo from Disney!

On allowing younger versions of ourselves lead the way

On allowing younger versions of ourselves lead the way

(me, age 35) There's been a creative project that I've been resisting. It's one of those projects that looms large, my brain making up stories about it that loom even larger:  You don't have time. It's too massive of a project. Why bother.   For years now, the...
