Gratitude to all of you that have supported my work. i have a burning desire to create tiny things that help tell stories or send messages of love and integrity.  i can't help it. i love it there in that world and i love thinking that you might feel happiness there too. 
Thank You!

We printed a giant (3'x4') engineer print through photojojo of him and printed squares of his best captures through 
artifact uprising and we are celebrating so much his fun life and times. Thank you to those photo enablers for such a celebrational opportunity! 

Such lucky times to be with someone so warm and fuzzy who allowed us to care for him for the past 2 years.

Much of November has been heavy.  
This little guy poked a hole in me when he decided to leave us early this month.  
Tears have spilling out of that hole ever since. 
I will miss you fuzzy buddy everyday!  
You left such a gigantic imprint! even though you were a Mini Rex.  I am thankful for you and our time together.  Thank you for being with me as long as you could.
Roger Rorschach Smith was your name but we mostly called you "Baby".
We found pictures in your black markings and smiled so much in your company.
Your soft fur will be with me exists wiggled and woven in every piece of clothing i own and in every corner of home :)  Fuzzy buddies are like that.  
Yay for you everywhere!
Celebrating the layers of you and the gratitude there...which means it hurts a lot...but you are worth celebrating!
Chamomile will never be the same without you!

photography happened today for the beginnings of my etsy listings. it will be days until i have captured it all and the light is so tricky...always changing.  
cloudy was the day so i was celebrating that diffuse light well into the afternoon.
rain tonight which i am loving the idea of after so long in dry landscapes of CA.

my favorite finding of 2015 is that beeswax works as an excellent glue for my natural,  botanical arranging formulations.
lichen and dried flowers hold tightly and honestly.
