it's warmed up a little and it's raining. it feels like spring is around the corner. lil miss and i had a nice outing on sunday. we went to the pet store (her choice) to look at the animals. she is very inquisitive and is an animal lover to the core (like her mama). we visited the cats jewel and rocky (i wish i could have adopted them), we said hello to all of the mice, gerbils, and guinea pigs, pouted a little when we found out the store was out of rabbits, and talked to all of the birds (but they're too noisy she said). every day spent with her is a blessing.

hope you all had a great weekend!

she cracks me up.



i realized i must do three things to stay sane:
drink my tea every nite
burn incense

keeping up with this ritual is something i need to stick with. when i don't, everything in my life seems to fall apart.

do you have a ritual that brings you peace? share.


feeling very much much better (as adara says).

i haven't been up to much lately. just thinking about spring and what i'm going to post in the shop next. running this business is teaching me a lot. most of all, i realize that everyda i always need to be doing something towards the business. whether it's promoting, developing new designs, making pieces, working on the blog, etc. i gotta be producing. it's a lot of hard work, but boy am i having fun doing it.

currently love:
rucyl mills - that brave man glow is my joint!
the brooklyn circus
fly girls
conscious alchemy - herbal bath and & body products


it seems i got the stomach bug that lil miss had last week. mine however, has mutated into something a little different since i haven't been able to eat solid foods for three days now. WHAT'S GOING ON?! i'm not a happy camper. what could make my body rebel like this? it's got me seriously inspecting my diet even more closely now.

any amount of the creative juice that was flowing is currently non-existent. i hate being sick.
