be real be wholeheARTed

January 19, 2015

being a creative person, i often get depressed when i can’t create new things. i’ve been blessed with great customers who have purchased my art over the years, but sometimes being busy recreating is not the same thing as being busy creating. in 2011, after my shop had been open for about two years, i decided i needed to take a 'creating' break. i put my shop on vacation and i tried to get inspired. i created several new pieces, but i wasn’t loving them. i was trying too hard. nothing felt just right. then my friend sent me a link to a TedTalk video by Brené Brown.

go into the world and do good

go into the world and do good

January 05, 2015

"Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.” ~ Minor Myers, Jr

i read this quote while surfing the internet a few years ago. it moved me. so i created a sign. i wanted it to be simple. and direct. and much like the quote that inspired it, i wanted it to be powerful. i hoped that its words would speak to everyone that had the opportunity to read it. that it would remind them that they are responsible for their actions. that they have control over the energy that they share with those they meet.
