Reflecting and Dreaming with Gratitude

Our days are growing longer, the full moon is waning, and a new year is on her way... I love this time for wrapping up projects, reflecting on the past year, and dreaming for the days to come.  I hope you all enjoyed wonderful holidays and are relishing in these slower days.

I want to say Thank You! To all the amazing people who came out and welcomed me to the Midwest this year, who held my heart and roots so strong in the Southwest, and all who have taken time to appreciate the art and sculptural jewels that grow from the conversation between my hands and the heap of materials we draw with.  It has been an honor and an incredible adventure and I am thrilled to continue sharing so much love and courage with a growing community.  As usual, I donate 10% of all profits each year, this year I am honored to donate to Willowtail Springs Nature Preserve and Education  https://willowtail.org/ and to Jane Goodall’s Roots and Shoots https://rootsandshoots.org/ supporting growth in our awareness and care for this beautiful place we live! 

 And... Happy New Year!!! May yours be filled with beautiful growth, with kindness, courageous love, and curiosity!

XOXO
