“so many blessings, so much love”
i’ve added a couple more prints to the shop, including the one above and these latest pieces.
i’m in the studio today working on orders, articles, shipments, admin stuff,  but i wanted to point you to some inspiration:
*jen’s video. so proud of her. so proud to call her a friend.
*andrea’s new bloom necklace. omg, i want it!
*brene’s seriously inspiring read along. i’ve been listening in today as i work. i have learned so much from brene about how i see the world, how i cope, and how i can embrace all of my imperfections with grace. and i LOVE that amazon has paired our books together. she has a language that i recognize, that feels familiar, but that challenges me in the best of ways.
*megan’s post about art + fashion. it made me remember the social work jobs i had from 1996-2006 when i wore the same banana republic pants to work everyday (in different colors) paired with a long sleeved cotton shirt from the gap (in different colors). i had no variety in my work outfits, no creativity. it was well before i discovered my quirky/artsy side, before my fashion changed, before i really knew who i was. just as in decorating, fashion, etc, etc, we express ourselves in all we do and it can be very very telling when we feel the creative whispers but our surroundings aren’t quite matching up. megan just opened up her etsy shop and i’m thinking her little zipper pouches are a.d.o.r.a.b.l.e.
one more thing before i go. a silly story. yesterday, i was down at pike’s place visiting with my friend liz elayne. on the way home, a total + complete stranger had to hop into the orange crush and help me get it up the steepest hill you can imagine. it was so terrifying, all the stalling out, and rolling backwards toward cars and people. and fumbling with the gears and emergency brake. that hill. omg. thank god for good samaritans who jump in cars and take care of business. it’s a story i won’t soon forget. a bit scary. terrifying. but silly and funny because all is well in the end. but i will NEVER take the dear old orange crush down by pike’s place ever again. ever 🙂

Sending much love,
