17 Designs – 17 Days!

It happens to all of us. That creative slump we dread. The words won’t come. The notes are silent. The metal looks lifeless and cold.

For the last year I have been in survival mode. I have had to find a way to support my children, generate an income, pay bills and find my way as […]

Saying Goodbye to Summer

It is difficult to experience the sadness the end of summer brings for me, although this year is less challenging than some. When my kids were in traditional school, I felt that I was losing them to schedules, routines, homework, school activities. Autumn brought the end of months of imagination, play and relaxation.

Happy Birthday Sophie!

My daughter turns 10 years old today. A decade of my life has passed as I have watched this amazing, miraculous being come into this world and make her way. I remember the day we knew she was present with us, the night I thought I was losing her, the bliss I felt during my […]

Let’s Start A Revolution!

I am frequently asked why I am vegan.  Why I am so passionate and insistent that our household be vegan.  It has been a lifestyle choice that has been the basis for relationships ending and beginning.  For relocating my family, completely changing my business and clarifying the meaning in my life.  No small thing.

There are […]

Being You

“What is it we are questing for? It is the fulfillment of that which is potential in each of us. Questing for it is not an ego trip; it is an adventure to bring into fulfillment your gift to the world, which is yourself. There is nothing you can do that’s more important than being […]
