Noun: Refusal to accept any standard short of perfection.
This word has held me captive and cost me my confidence on more occasions than I care to discuss. But all that is changing.
Only great things can come from letting loose and embracing imperfection.
So with that…
A couple weekends ago while in Richmond, Virginia, my family and I spend Mother’s Day at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. For whatever reason, that Sunday, that particular museum visit (this was not my first by far), I had a sort of spiritual awakening. I have yet to fully unpack what happened to me at VMFA, but I am certain that the world of art and supporting the artists around me are now more of my mission than ever before. It was some kind of profound turning point.
These are the art pieces that captured my heart. I especially enjoyed the Pop Art exhibit and the private collection of Sydney and Frances Lewis, who have an incredible story and history of art acquisition and artist friendships.
So dark and moody, it’s almost a neutral.
Perfect bag, perfect garden, perfect wall (and red heels), perfect Basquiat

I’m crazy about hand-stamped business logos. They’re the perfect way to be both professional and personal at the same time. I searched high and low for a wooden stamp that combined my signature and text for my web address and city. And I’m so pleased with the result. You’ll see this logo on the back of all my paper products and probably anywhere else that I can put it.
I’m noticing hand-stamped logos being used by other businesses, and I hope to see more handcrafters use them to create memorable branding on wonderful products.
If you’re looking for a stamp, I found this beautiful, very affordable stamp at www.rubberstampchamp.com. The size assortments and options are enormous!
