Burning Things

I’m watching the leaves fall today. Is it the act of letting go or being released? Each burst of wind brings an ephemeral dance, with the leaves, trees, air and other unseen elements at play.

I’ve been cleaning out lately. Deciding what is essential. Understanding why I hold onto things. Objects tied to happy memories, significant […]

Did You Feel That Today?

This is the first day that I felt the air change.

Waking up the house felt crisp.

Stepping outside the cool air invigorated me enough to inspire me to go for a walk.

{The fact that my thoughtful son suggested I walk in the opposite path of his bus stop so that I wouldn’t get hit […]

Wonder, Wildness and the Pursuit of Making Things Happen

I have much to be grateful for this New Year. More than most people realize. More than I can even fully comprehend. I have a chance to start over. To gather up all of the dark corners, the rivers of panic and disbelief that once looked like fear and despair but are now courage and […]

Art, Connection and Fighting My Ego

I am fighting with my ego. Again.
During what should have been a productive day in my studio, I decided to ramble on in my own mind about what defines art. I started piecing together snippets from different conversations with people I admire, creatively and personally. I am trying to make peace with this girl in […]

Ahimsa Yoga Festival 2014

I have grounded myself since I had kids. I have struggled with even more fear about traveling and being away because I think I can’t do anything stupid, by my own choice, that would cause my kids to have to grow up without me. Motherhood has been the perfect soil in which to grow my […]

I Did It! Reflections on the Design Challenge

I Did It! Reflections on the Design Challenge

So, the last piece for my design challenge has been photographed. The last description has been written.

I love the feeling of knowing you have to do something, but not knowing why. The certainty you have that insists on action. The feeling of being swept along a current, conscious […]

17 Day Design Challenge: Day 16

IT’S DAY 16!

Check out today’s design here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/165501466/unisex-recycled-sterling-silver-copper

Being Vegan is about love. Love for animals, love for the planet, love for all.

This necklace reminds me that veganism is more than a political agenda, or a way of eating or even a lifestyle. It is about the principle of ahimsa, doing no harm and loving one […]

What I Learned From The Flu

What I Learned From The Flu

This has been a strange week, lived in a haze, yet lived in unusual clarity. Every member of our household has had the flu. It knocked everyone of us out for a full week. Many days at least one of us was unable to get out of bed. Our youngest […]

17 Day Design Challenge: Day 11

It’s DAY 11 OF MY 17 DAY DESIGN CHALLENGE!

HOT OFF THE BENCH! – Please check out today’s design here.

Artsy, colorful and curvy. I love the interplay of the orange in the copper with the tones in the turquoise centered with the cool calming sterling silver.

Down to earth, organic and unlikely to go unnoticed.

I’d love to […]
