Alive & Fresh in Spring

“What a strange thing!
to be alive
beneath cherry blossoms.”
-Kobayashi Issi

A quick warm note to welcome you to my new website and to the freshness of Spring. I have many exciting announcements to make (one in particular) and look forward to sharing more of my life, art, travels, and experiences in creation here. Please take a look around at my new offerings here too, I am particularly excited about the new bamboo prints–they are so gorgeous and sleek in person, as well as a completely green item.

I wish you a most joyous season of new growth and fragrant sweetness. May you walk in ruthless sincerity.

UPDATE: As I celebrate this new website and many new endeavors, I’ve decided to do a special giveaway and pick one winner at random (I will pull a number). All you have to do is leave a comment here–on anything! The winner will get to pick out something of their liking from my website. I will announce the winner on Friday April 12th. 

UPDATE No. 2: And the winner is the darling Jea Tea. Thank you for sharing everyone… more bright and earthy goodness soon.
