I’ve been making things for as long as I can remember. Whether it is knitting, sewing, painting, cooking, or building forts, I have always been deep in a state of creation. Thanks to my artist mother I never had a lack of supplies or inspiration. After eight years of working in an office with those supplies and inspiration on a shelf in my closet and my mind, I’ve finally decided to follow my happiness and build a life of creation and beauty. There is nothing I love more than making things for others and now I get to do that all day long :) The name Two of Wands seemed the most appropriate for my endeavor. It is my favorite tarot card and the meaning behind it encompasses exactly what I felt for so long and am finally bringing to reality. The Two of Wands is focused on future planning, progress, decisions, and discovery. Drawing this card means that you can take your ideas and desires and turn them into a solid plan for success. It is about stepping into that scary but exciting unknown and knowing that you have the potential to shine. The suit of wands represents energy, spirituality, inspiration, creativity, ambition and expansion. The two represents a decision, in my case to leave behind the binding safety net of a “job” and freeing myself to follow my dreams. In January of 2013 I climbed to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, and when I reached the other side I met a woman who offered to read my cards. The Two of Wands was drawn and since that day my dreams have been set in motion. My inspiration comes from the world around me - nature, history, culture, trends, and function. I hope others can be inspired by my designs and feel the love and positive energy I put into them. Thank you for visiting my shop and sharing in the beauty of creation with me.
