January 2021

A shiny new year, a blank slate, expectations & motivation elevated -

that's how I usually move into each January.
No one would be surprised that this year is different. I'm writing this on the 18th of the month -

that says a lot about my motivation - or lack thereof.

And while I would normally look to write something uplifting or inspiring in this space,

instead I find myself feeling quiet & reflective...& annoyed by anything remotely platitude-ish

so you can feel relieved that I won't tell you that this too shall pass.
What I've settled upon & am offering to you as a suggestion, is to go with the simple.

Use this weird month to uncomplicate, even if it's one tiny thing. Light candles, read, afford yourself a small indulgence (cappucino from the coffee shop for me), disconnect (I deactivated my personal Facebook acct)

stay away from crowded places but get outside to breathe in winter's cool, cleansing air.
Reset, regroup. Count blessings.

once upon a time i decided (quite out of nowhere) that i wanted to be an artist who created magic from photographs. so i did and i called the whole collection LAND O' MAKE BELIEVE and it grew and grew and got pretty popular. you should definitely check it out.

it has its own website or you can go directly to the shop:

le petit bonheur means the little happiness (french)
it has always been the smallest things that have brought me the most pleasure and now i'm bringing that idea to this site.
eclectic collection of handmade small indulgences.

that cost very little.  for you.  for someone you ♥

various items that i alter and make fabulous by adding embroidered sayings + designs + other fun embellishments.

truly one-of-a-kind.

fun ideas that come to me (mostly in the middle of the night) that i design the next day then slap on t-shirts and sell to you.

affordably, of course and as usual.
