"propping" up for our move


mama is busily sewing 40+ bolsters, meditation cushions, and darling damask eyepillows for our new studio props. the eyepillows will be filled with organic lavender and flax seed. i JUST love the look of the damask. this photo was taken during saturday's shoot - yay, mama!

yesterday i had a shoot for my next 12-week series for the examiner. the final photo had me crossing rooftops - literally - and doing dancer pose. should be a fun shot.

can you believe spring is right around the corner? and easter? i am so excited to see nature coming to life and i, too, am feeling a bit more in bloom than i have the past few months. it's nice to have this shift to growth and color, isn't it? here are some fun spring prep ideas:

* buy some fresh cut daffodils for your kitchen table
* plant impatiens as soon as they hit your local nursery
* clean out your closets
* take a brisk morning walk
* light a lilac candle
* add some splashes of color to your home
* tie a colorful scarf around your neck or handbag
* pull out your peeptoe flats
* keep stalks of bamboo around your home and office to remind you of "greening" and feeling lucky
* eat a pastel-colored cupcake

happy *almost* spring!

I was going to ask exactly the same question as Carolyn! Will they be for sale? Would make great gifts too for girlfriends...

My favorite of your ideas is the cupcake but then I like any excuse to eat a cupcake :)

indeed, the yummy eyepillows will be the first lifestyle accessory addition to the TranquiliT line. any other lifestyle-esque accessory you "need"developed by TranquiliT? xo

I have an idea and it's something I am forever searching for....how about a damask notebook cover. For all of us lifelong list makers!!!

How about a water bottle/on the go drinks container? Also a small make up wallet for lip gloss/tablets would be fab (I am always getting lip gloss all over the bag lining so a tiny bag would be cool!). I will watching out for the eye pillow (nice and light to send to the UK too!)...
Have a good Easter every-one!
