coming back....

After a long internet hiatus I'm slowly coming back. I'm not ready to share why, only that I've experienced a loss that changed my world suddenly and unexpectedly. I've been cloistering myself with family and our sweet, goofy pets, and have pushed everything else aside- work, friends, life. Slowly, slowly I'm trying to figure out how to come back after this loss.

There are little points of light and joy everyday. I've been cooking and baking a lot. I've put my restless energy into making thoughtful meals & sweets. We take long evening walks with my mom's three little dogs. My mom is a good gardener with a lush, beautiful backyard. I love spending time outside in this green haven. This backyard was a jungle to me as a child, and there's still wonder to be found in a suburban backyard in the blistering heat when you've got a heavy heart. We've been checking in on our "friend" everyday, a bright green grasshopper, whose been living in a hibiscus plant in the backyard...


I've reopened my Etsy shop – it was closed for about a month. It's a bit different right now, because it's only custom embroidery. While I'm in California with my family (away from my Brooklyn studio) I'm only able to make and ship custom embroidery pieces, but if there is something you want send me a email or convo....

I should tell you-  this was hard to write. I never want to share too much or get too personal. I think I just wanted to remind you to tell the people you love that you love them, everyday....
