the celebration of female creativity
"eternally, woman spills herself away in driblets to the thirsty, seldom being allowed the time, the quiet, the peace, to let the pitcher fill up to the brim." ~ anne morrow lindbergh
this saturday, tranquil space is delighted to host 25 female creators of products and businesses into our sacred space. i began these trunk shows in 2004 as a way to feature the amazing work that local women are doing with a true focus on empowering women to create! i love seeing women who have been making jewelry in their living rooms while working full-time jobs in a totally unrelated field, show their wares, get great feedback, and venture into the exciting (and scary) world of entrepreneurship.
i included the quote above by anne morrow lindbergh (AMAZING author of every woman's must-read a gift from the sea) as a lovely reminder of the importance for women to nurture and indulge in creativity. by taking the time to fill our own "pitcher," we are more able to assist and inspire others. reconnect with your own creative urges, spend time "coloring outside the lines," be original, and support women's creativity journeys by encouraging and honoring their dreams. our lives are meant to be lived boldly and creatively.
