On Monday I felt discouraged. I asked for a sign that I am on the right path, both creatively and with marketing my work on Etsy. On Wed I was included in a beautiful Treasury, and yesterday I had 2 new sales. Furthermore, my hair stylist would like to book a workshop with me for a client's Bridal Shower. What fun for everyone, and how good it feels to be chosen!

We planted this iris tuber in the fall of 2006. It grew but did not flower in 2007. Last spring, it graced us with this amazing bloom. And I think of how much my hopes and dreams and efforts and vigilant attention for my small creative business resemble an iris.

I think also that our hearts are like the soil in my garden. Our hearts must be enriched regularly in order to nurture the roots and seeds and tubers of the dreams we plant.


  1. Congrats on your successes! I know how it feels to be waiting for the shop to take off...I haven't had any business since Christmas! But I don't mind, I still love to make things :) Keep on creating!

  2. Thank you greatly, Steph!

    Your time is coming- keep believing in yourself and the talent you were given!

  3. Keep hoping and asking for what you want and deserve! Plant many dream seeds and nurture them well.

    Good luck and thanks for showcasing the beautiful crafts and art.
