Some days/weeks I feel like I accomplish nothing with my work. A blur of play dates, teething, colds, grocery shopping, dishes, laundry. I wouldn't really change anything (maybe a little more studio time). Still adjusting to being a parent of a small child and being an artist- designer- whatever at the same time. Grateful for this life.
Because...why not? Stick and poke by @smallspells. (❤️ thank you) Transformation through love. Something to remind me to breathe in difficult or fearful situations. Thank you @thespiritguidecoach for re-introducing me to Rachel's work.
I just booked a trip to study traditional indigo dyeing and katazome stenciling in Japan this time next year. Pinching myself! It will be the longest amount of time I've spent away from my son (I've only spent a few hours away from him until now). Excited and terrified! At least I'll have a year to mentally prepare myself. All photos taken from my first trip to Japan in 2012. 🇯🇵💙🙆🏻
