“Sometimes you have to
let everything go—purge yourself.
If you are unhappy with anything—
whatever is bringing you down—get rid of it.
Because you will find that when you are free,
your true creativity, your true self comes out.”
– Tina Turner

Running Mantra: Strong Core, Fast Feet
While I am running, my mind is focused on everything and nothing. My body knows what it’s doing but I check in with it often … shoulders down, strong core, neutral pelvis, elbows in, fast feet … the list goes on. How’s my breath? I check my time and pace. Then, my mind floats away … green grass, birds, cracks in the pavement, rocks, wedgie, sweat in my eyes, cars, flowers … where am I going today? Shoulders down, easy focus. I am creating jewelry, ads, newsletters, photos, my blog … I am inspired. What’s for dinner? How’s my pace? Fast feet … 1,2,3,1,2,3 … shoulders down, strong core, neutral pelvis, elbows in. Almost home. I don’t want the adventure to end but I know it’s time to stop, stretch, and rest for my next run.
It’s been a very busy and exciting week in my studio – I received my first wholesale order for my shrink plastic jewelry! At first I thought that “wholesale” might take the creative feeling out of my work. As I prepared the order, I was happy to find that I enjoyed the uniqueness of each piece that I created.
I’m having a Leap Year Sale in my Etsy shop!
