i love pulling out buttons, bra clips, vintage earrings.
buttons, buckles, and more.
i love creating space for the work of my hands.
i love making the space beautiful.
i love reaching into jars and finding something that's been tossed away and turn that object into something new and amazing. i love these spaces of quiet where my hands and my soul speak. i call these moments creative rest because my hands add restful pauses to days filled with thoughts. my inner workings quiet and focus. i am given a chance to be fully who i am: integrated. whole. i use my voice as i create. i am not silenced by the ones who need to shout. my silence in these moments is my voice. i choose what i am saying. i choose what i am doing.
i use my hands to create.
i behold the goodness.
i create spaces for myself and others to find the creative voice, the creative spirit.
i create space for wisdom to be present & quiet so that wisdom can be heard.
i create space in order to live fully as an integrated person.
they're not just vintage buttons, buckles, bra clasps. they're each a story and a purpose and a desire.
they are meaning. they are voice and expression and life.
