My goal is to help inspire you to do what you love and love what you do.

I know how easy it is to let other peoples opinions get in the way of what we know in our own heart to be true.

We are the only ones who will ever know what is going to make us truly happy and how we are going to keep our bodies healthy so it's vital that we learn to honor ourselves above all else.

Self-love is the key to the doorway we have been searching for as it will unlock our potential. I'm here to be a cheerleader of sorts for you as well as to set an example as l travel along this journey to self-love.

Honestly I've been trying to get clarity on what my own mission is exactly.

I'm highly creative and produce a lot of crafty things but the universe has been giving me all kinds of signs telling me I'm too focused on those "things". (I keep wondering how on earth I'm going to make money if not for these "things" I love to create so I'm holding on to them too for now. See my new shopping section.)

I keep avoiding my true nature as a spiritually inclined human being who wants to help other people find happiness in this seemly crazy world we are living in today.

The best things in life are not things at all yet even though I know this I'm scared to move beyond what I know because the familiar is often comfortable and acceptable. As human beings we long for connection yet struggle too often in our relationships because we are so focused on material based things. I hope to reconnect to you, with you and to the earth as we discover what our hearts have been trying to tell us.

Our souls long for the freedom to be who we are and to express ourselves without fear. I will be offering new services here soon that will be more people and experience focused. Stay tuned for changes, until then, please buy some of my things to help me get to Australia and Columbia this summer.

Feel free to e-mail me anytime for any reason too, I'm here for you. 

 

New Shopping Section!!!

Check out the new line of custom tote bags I'm making with purpose. The first purpose is to use up materials I have that are off cuts and leftovers from my Canvaswork. Instead of throwing them out I've collected them over the years and I'm finally turning them into functional products. The second purpose is to fund two major travel events I have planned... a friend is getting married this summer in Columbia and I am one of five people from Bellingham participating in the Bellingham Sister Cities Association exchange program in Port Stephens, Australia.

Airfare is the expensive part so I am accepting donations too. 

I sincerely Thank you for your support.

With Love, Joy

The future is created in your imagination.
