The Artwork Locket Cards are a vision of a more intimate and connected-to-self, nature and each other world. They express core values I attempt to live by in each moment.
- Support for small businesses
- Art and beauty
My journey in this world has always been one of seeing things outside the “norm.” And chances are really good that if you’re reading this, that’s often how you view the world, too. Despite the perceived challenges and struggles (and trust me I’ve had many), those moments, events, feelings, experiences are actually here in service to our wholeness. It is only through embracing them that we get to thrive.
Some years ago, when I was walking the path toward death with my mom, I opted to choose to decide to die without regrets. Not an easy path for one who has, from the outside, lived a courageous life of travel, living in foreign countries, and various careers. Relationships and solo time. Yet on the inside, there was a longing…there was something missing. And that something was my connection to me. Me in both the largest and smallest sense of the word.
We are all creative. The very act of being alive is a creative activity. Art and artist are simply a subset of creative. So I am embracing the artist and opting to share it in a bigger way with you.
These Locket Cards allow you to have a card and gift in one. They are designed and created from sustainable materials and meant to be “upcycled.” How many times have you received a card with a message you loved and hung onto it for awhile. Now what? It might get stuffed into a box or drawer…collecting dust, making chaos and leaving an “heirloom” for the kids? Or tossed into the trash. Or if you’re lucky, recycled at a facility or placed into a reuse-pile to create new artwork someday?
When you gift one of the locket cards, they are like an old fashioned locket with the image of someone you love or a secret message inside. They contain your written words and the beautiful collage hanging on the wall or nested on a coffee table or dresser is a constant reminder of the connection. Of the love that is present between the giftor and giftee.
