words to live by

 here to report
on a deliciously exhausting
heartily refreshing week.

the art math:

big chunks of studio time+
dainty stacks of pretty found paper+
inspiring words that stand the test of time+
layering play+
the thrill of quick sketch type work+
sewing machine+
11 or so pots of jasmine green tea

14 new joyful pieces 
in my 'words to live by' series
added to the etsy shop

have a wonderful weekend, friends!
