The Sparrows Flock Here

Sparrows symbolize community, friendly zones, taking care, joy, and many other qualities. It was no surprise to visit a crystal shop that they migrate to every year. What a home.

My Art Will Come to Life

I call it 'Hang and Roost'. A weekend art project at the University of Chicago turned into my first inspiration for public art. Seen here as loops of colorful paper, the imagination speaks to a large interactive piece for play and recreation. This is where it starts.

There's nothing like an impromptu art party!

Ila had a half-day at school.

Thanks Ila! for a fun Friday.

An Attitudinal Way to Go

A great attitude becomes a great mood
A great mood becomes a great day.
A great day becomes a great year.
A great year becomes a great life. A great life!

Soy Mantra

Lighting a flame, sets such ambiance. The flickers of fire, the scent sure can dance.
To set an intention, when sparking the flame. To give it a mood, give this love a name.
Lighting a flame, is more than a thing. With the right focus, more love you can bring.

Shea Mantra

I started making bodycare products in my kitchen about eleven years ago. Clean living has been a great addition to my health care practices. As a Naturista, I like to charge my creations and hand-mades with positive intentions. I do so because I believe what goes inside the body is as important as what we put onto our bodies.

Shea Butter:
*packed with therapeutic properties and vitamins.
*nourishes the hair, skin, and nails.
*yellow and white colored variations of this smoked nut emollient.
*excellent for burns, bruising, cellular rejuvenation, and circulation.

Natural Care Blog

I was in my late 20's when I became obsessed with clean living and natural care. It was around the time I first became a Mom. Since then, creating body care from ingredients in the kitchen has been a staple. And, whenever the opportunity arises to discuss being a Naturista, it exhilarates me.
From here, I have grown as an Artist and writing about ways to empower ourselves from the inside out is what this blog is all about.
