These next two are part of my "The Physicality of Words" Series, taken very directly from one of my best loved phrases, a phrase I continually cling to, a phrase I wear like a mantra, a phrase for which there is no tidy English translation from the original Vietnamese (so please forgive my bumbling explaination). 
Buong Xa Di
"Exhale the negativity within you, which hinders the Spirit, in order to make room for creative growth"
Now honestly, have you ever heard such a beautiful, hopeful phrase in all your years?  One of these days I plan to wear it low along my left arm, to be reminded with every movement of every brush, every flick of the wrist to exhale.

These pieces and a few others will be winding their way into the Shop-a-roo tomorrow morning, Monday December 20th, around 11:00 PST.  Each of these sea stones are available as Reserves, if one belongs to you, just drop me an Etsy convo right here.  

In other news, I had a delicious date with my BC last night, part of our own celebration for the end of chemotherapy.  I swilled a gin martini with a lime twist and got tipsy under the twinkling Christmas lights of 153 year old building with my man.  
Woke up this morning, felt fabulous.

How was your weekend?

Beautiful post - you are a stunningly talented artist :) I love the phrase and will be copying it down into my little book, and I have been looking for a new tattoo....
Best wishes to you from N.Ireland (not london as I keep coming up as being from - that's just where the hub is)
