Curating little altars around your home is about creating moments of reverence for the past and peace for the present. They are tokens we have collected on our journey through life.

They are photographs or momentos of ancestors who have gone before us and who we honor in our home.

Tiny treasures that spark joy from adventures in antiquing or crystals that bring a sense of natural wonder.

These tiny altars everywhere help to designate the space you inhabit as truly yours. Marking it as who are, who you hope to be, what you love and who you love to remember.

Let these candles, crystals, palo santo, sage, aromatherapy diffusers, and family heirlooms help center you in the present moment and bring you a sense of peace. Most of all let them spark joy.

Rainy days invite us to pour that extra cup of tea, pull out our favorite pair of socks, and nestle ourselves into a good book. A literal washing away of the hundred million worries and to-do's we constantly have buzzing in our heads.

Rainy days have an air of mysticism, like the fog blurs the layers between the dimensions, allowing for a sense of time travel.

Maybe with the rain the universe is forcing us to look inward. The sound of the rain drops beating on the roof act as natures rhythmic sound therapy and reconnect us with the beating of our own heart.

Rain in movies is always used to bring that heightened sense of romantic drama. When i was younger, I whole heartedly bought into this concept. Rain, I vehemently believed was the bearer of teenage turmoil and breakups.

Now however, next to ocean waves crashing- the sound of rain is one of the most peaceful things I can think of.

Vision boards serve as a visual manifestation of what’s currently pulling me pulling my eye aesthetically, culturally and texturally

Rather than posting images that get lost in a Pinterest board of ideas somewhere on the web, never really to be seen again, unless I specifically remember them. I am able to surround myself in that which inspires me I can absorb, process it and reassemble it in my brain for new ideas.

I cover everything from bulletin boards, the back of doors, studio walls, and have journals filled with smaller collages.

It’s the process of collecting these images, combing through magazines, seeing what is happening in the zeigt geist of the moment. They help spark ideas for my works of art, pillows, and just helps my brain keep dreaming of what I want life to be.

So, when I found myself at Barnes and Nobles the other day to find their magazine section was no longer, I felt absolutely gutted and at a loss. Craving that therapeutic outlet of brainstorming. I went to my local pharmacy to find the same scenario.. Where have all the magazines gone?

I for one am not ready to let them die. I have added annual subscriptions to all of my favorites now to my Christmas wish-list.
