a love letter for you

after the muddled feelings of my last post, i thought i would very decidedly change the tone with images of these incredible & inspiring murals by artist steve powers that happen to be right here in philly.

though i may not feel any more clarity than i did last week in terms of my life's work, i am lucky to have the most amazing partner in my husband, who is with me every step of the way, through the good and the bad. these murals are another reminder to me that i already have what i value most... him. where we live, where we work -- it's all secondary & it will fall into place, though maybe not exactly at the instant that i want it to. wherever we are, we'll be together. and that's enough.

i also want to thank you all for your encouraging comments on my last post... it means so much & has helped me along my way this past week, tremendously so. i promise not to abandon my etsy shops... i've just got to find the right balance in my life & i'm examining it all from every angle to find that balance. i'm planning on a lot more outdoor adventures, time with friends, & exploring new opportunities to help shed a little light on what i'm meant to do. and i suppose, even if i don't find it, i'll have fun in the process!

i hope you all have a great week ahead of you. and thanks, as always, for reading



  1. some points:
    1. I love these murals. The text, the font, the scale - so cool. so inspiring.
    2. I love catching your facebook posts for tree & kimball and I am continually impressed by all of your beautiful creations.
    3. It's clear that your awesome talents spill into so many mediums. Your unique take and creative ability knows no bounds.

  2. it's so hard at times and I too often wonder if the path I'm on is 'right', sometimes you have to keep going down it a bit to see. What you wrote here in last two posts rings true I'm sure for many people, especially balancing everything all at once...sounds like you have a lovely person to help!
