Mother’s Day Bouquet

April 23, 2016

Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Don’t worry, I have it covered. I can help break your gift giving rut this Mother’s Day. How about instead of buying your mom that same old last minute bouquet on the way to her house, you gave her a beautiful painting of flowers she could hang on her wall? What if you could skip the crowded card aisle this year? No fighting over all the good cards? Wouldn’t that be nice? No stress Mother’s Day.

Starting today until May 1st, I am offering 15% off everything in my Etsy store. Enter coupon code: Mother. Not only that, for the first 20 orders I am offering a free beautiful Mother’s Day card, $5 value. I will even make it easier for all of you peeps who have mother’s who don’t live close. I will ship your print or painting with whatever personal message you would like to include in the card. Done and done.



This is the beautiful Mother’s Day card that you will receive with ANY purchase. They are on a first come, first serve basis.

I have gifts for every budget. From $12 and up. Here are some suggestions:

$12 before discount, 5 x 7 art print CHOOSE ANY



$20 before discount, 8 x 10 Art Print CHOOSE ANY

Beautiful Life

March 20, 2016

I swear to you, there are divine things more beautiful than words can tell. -Walt Whitman

Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s about unbecoming everything that isn’t really you. So you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.

People generally see what they look for and hear what they listen for. -to kill a mockingbird

If you ever find yourself in the wrong story, leave. -unknown

It is what it is. Accept it and move on. -the land of Pinterest

Everything heals. Your body heals. Your heart heals. The mind heals. Wounds heal. Your soul repairs itself. Your happiness is always going to come back. Bad times don’t last.

When we fail to set boundaries and hold people accountable, we feel misused and mistreated. -Brene Brown

Daring to set boundaries is about having the courage to love ourselves even when we risk disappointing others. – Brene Brown

Expectations are premeditated resentments. – a good friend

Okay. So maybe all of these quotes don’t seem very related. But they all feel relevant to my life this year. Acceptance. Surrender. Boundaries. Healing. Happiness. Beauty. I hope maybe one or two spoke to you this beautiful day.IMG_6631-1.JPG

Coming soon to the shop.

In Stitches

February 23, 2016

I don’t know why there is a serious mental block about this blog lately. I seriously have more than enough content to post! And yet, the hours, days and weeks fly by without writing a single word. I guess it’s good because I just have been so busy actually living my life. And life has been pretty good lately. Not perfect. But a whole lot better. I really do appreciate all of you who do still stop by to say hello every once in while. Makes me happy.

I have so much new work to share with you. Lots of new prints in my Etsy store. And I have started doing some stitched pieces while I am watching TV or just sitting around. I just thought I would share some of those today. Enjoy!

It is unearned love- the love that goes before, that greets us on the way. It’s the help you receive when you have no bright ideas left, when you are empty and desperate and have discovered that your best thinking and most charming charm have failed you. Grace is the light or electricity or juice or breeze that takes you from that isolated place and puts you with others who are as startled and embarrassed and eventually grateful as you to be there.

-Ann Lamott

Man is born broken. He lives by mending. The grace of God is glue.

-Eugene O’Neill

I do not at all understand the mystery of grace- only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us.

-Ann Lamott

Grace is found in our deep dark fumbling need. It ignores the self sufficient and passes quickly over the one who has it all together. Grace breaks bread with the broken. And Grace is multiplied until there is just enough. Grace is when you show up with all of your not enoughness anyways to utter the most simple and holy of prayers. Help me.
