Good day all....
I know it has been awhile..
Changes changes changes...
I'm five and a half months pregnant now,
crazy, eh?
My FOURTH pregnancy :)
I have been busy making room for baby,
creating a new studio space, office space, new bedroom for Indie and GARDENING!!!
I love gardening...
So, Where am I going?
I am going into mama hood, taking a break from my hard core (giggle) creating and creating more family and wellness in my life.
I contacted my art rep, told her that my heart was really leaning toward family,
 (baby was a surprise but totally wonderful)
and that I am taking a hiatus from creating new collections for now...BUT that I hope that maybe some day I can jump back on board with her if possible? 
Her answer..
"Yes, I love your stuff and when you are ready, give me a call"
That made me feel good :)
Some of you may think I am crazy for doing as much as I have done then letting it all go...
Well folks... this is what following your heart is all about...
This is what faith, trusting the process and joy is about.
Right now everything feel pretty great, sometimes scary, but mostly wonderful..
I have found myself back into essential oils more now..
and...not only am I being mom I am also a student.
I have found that more and more (and this was happening when I was creating as well) my heart is calling more into the health and wellness realm and I am eager to learn, and be mom :)
My life is taking yet another beautiful turn and I am grateful.
So I will be blogging still, now and then, sharing my adventures as mom, healer, crafty chick...sharing my zest for life in hopes it will bring a smile to your day or help you in someway:) 
So for today...something especially for your nurses out there...
(I REALLY hope that more nurses pick up on the AMAZING benefits of essential oils. They truly can change lives for the better)

 Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens) has a wonderfully uplifting, calming, flowery scent. It is excellent for the skin, and its aromatic influence helps release negative memories. Used traditionally to support the circulatory and nervous systems, a great deal of its strength lies in its ability to revitalize body tissues.* Geranium has an approximate ORAC of 1,010,011 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter.

Peace and sunshine all :)
