White Butterfly

2016-07-11

I debated for a while whether or not I should share this poem. It’s very personal and I feel it comes from a sacred place. I wasn’t sure if it was meant to be shared, or stay close to my heart—free from outside judgement. I even consulted the I Ching, which brought more confusion. I sometimes find that consulting outer wisdom—as enlightening as it can sometimes be—can also bring you further from your own internal knowing. It’s funny, after

Dance

2016-05-31

I started dancing again. This time in a more formal way than I’m used to. I’m in a lyrical class and am falling in love—with the movement, the teacher, the dancers. Lyrical dance is a fusion of ballet and jazz dance techniques. Lyrical dance challenges choreographers and dancers to use motion to interpret music and express emotion. A lyrical dancer’s movements attempt to show the meaning of the music. Lyrical jazz is a very passionate and emotional dance style.

Unearthed Film

2016-05-25

I’ve had this roll of film floating around for over a decade now. I finally had it developed and I was thrilled to find some real gems. It makes me want to revert to film immediately. There is a quality that you can’t touch with digital. This roll also benefited greatly from age—I’m so in love with the tints that snuck in. I also had a moment looking through the photos wondering if it was myself or my mom who took the

Interview with London Blogger ‘A Life in the Season’

2015-11-08

Everything Golden Blog (Photo by: Pam Omohundro) I recently did an interview with Danielle of A Life in the Season. You can read the full interview here. I’ve pulled out a few of my favorite questions that really helped me define how I feel about my work and life. Who most inspires you? These days I’m really inspired by warrior mothers, who are active in their work/community while raising conscious, loving beings. My friends inspire me daily and constantly remind me of

Social Media

2015-10-09

So, I want to talk about social media. I’m feeling really strange about it all. I find that I get so addicted to Instagram that I can’t even make myself step away for a day. I post and delete things constantly, feeling unsure of myself. Who cares?! And I can’t help but get caught up with the vanity of presenting the best image of myself, myself also being my brand which I’m trying to build and building that requires

My Mother – My Main Muse

2015-10-06

An old friend of my mom’s recently wrote a comment about my shop that was the best compliment I could receive. She said that it reminded her Carol (my mom, who passed away 15 years ago). She is my main muse and I am always channeling her when I create or find things. My mother in law, who often accompanies me on buying trips, once said that I must have started developing my sense of style while in my mother’s womb. It’s

Creativity and the Burnout Factor

2015-06-02

Art Collage via Everything Golden Blog I’ve been feeling really, really burnt-out lately. I’ve been working like a dog and not seeing much payoff. Being a one-woman operation can be exhausting. Don’t get me wrong, I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to live my dream, express my vision. I know in my heart that I’ve found my true path, now I worry that I can’t sustain it. Last night I had a dream I was a part of this amazing creative studio. The energy

Healing Plants

2015-05-15

Healing Herbal Tea Blend via Everything Golden Blog I’ve had this cold for the past few weeks that is kicking my ass. I thought I was getting better until I felt a sinus infection coming on. I was so determined to not go the antibiotics route so I went to see my dear friend Mattie of Juniperous. She is so in tune with plants and their healing and spiritual quality, it’s an absolute joy to be able to share in her knowledge. She set me up with
