Last time I played here was in June and so much has happened since then. not only are we on Etsy, can be found on Thortful, but we have exclusive designs on Society6 as well. There are so many ways to be creative. Empowering someone to build their own wall art, print a card (for the party coming up tonight!) in their home or at a local print shop -- that kind of thing brings us joy. We encourage the self-sufficiency of letting you run with our design.
Without a doubt, living on an island in the middle of the Pacific has challenged and changed us to really solidify our beliefs in having a smaller footprint, consuming less, realizing what we are leaving behind.... we don't want to physically package and ship stuff all over the world anymore.
We strive to create pieces that start conversation and provoke thought... bring a smile... stop you in your tracks... remind you of the sweet parts of life... there are so many.
Thortful = printed cards
Huge thank you for the Thortful love this month, especially for this design -- it has far exceeded expectations and is one of the bestsellers to date. It makes me smile thinking what these designs have become. I'm grateful for a company going above and beyond to print my designs on FSC-certified paper that is chlorine free, hard metal free, fully recyclable and biodegradable. What more could I ask for when outsourcing my work to be made into a physical card?
These cards are lovely - larger than 5x7 and printed on this beautiful, thick card stock - Thortful ships worldwide and supports artists like myself. Won't you give them a try before you pick up a handful of general cards from Target? ;)
To be honest,all of this creative stuff brings me joy. They say you should find something that brings you happiness and try to make a business out of it... no? I think so far so good... especially living on island-time, if you know what I mean!
For a life update... movements taking time from this collective :
yoga : all forms of it : but specifically the kind that has me waking up at 5:50am every morning with a smile, ready to sweat with one of 6 incredible female powerhouse instructors throughout the week. since moving here I attempt a daily practice. the inversions seem to be getting there, the stretches seem deeper, but more than that I love how I feel when I'm there, and I love even more, how I feel after I leave.
[ What a way to start the day! ]
wellness in general : we make 95% of our meals, playing with having our bodies in ketosis more often than not. reaping the benefits of a solid sleep schedule, gallon of water daily, healthy diets, yoga and meditation -- these things have encouraged us to spend zero time watching tv, on social media, etc. - instead we are taking daily walks that turn into bike rides, that turn into grocery shopping and biking home with a bag of groceries ... wellness in general takes on a new form when you let it seep into all areas of your life. we are embracing it.
we have never been more aligned, more in tune with what the next steps are -- we are living each moment fully and enjoying entirely this ride.
