Sometimes I get so frustrated with trying to find balance in my life. There are shit slicks on the inside of my daughter's toilet that I'm currently ignoring. There are emails to respond to while my toddler clobbers me in the face with his sippie cup of hours old milk. There is a memoir in me that is working its way out, word by word, that I avoid & at the same time LONG for.

So sometimes I have to remind myself to trust the unfolding. Sometimes I can calm the cuss down & remember that this shit will make its own way out in its own magical timing.

I needed these words today. Maybe you do too.

This is an 8x10 original on watercolor paper. There will be variations of it because I'm lettering them by hand in gold ink.

All orders are shipped First Class via USPS at my sweet little local Post Office.

I really like my print and I like this seller! My print arrived a little bit damaged from the mail (not the sellers fault) but the seller promptly sent out another one! What a great experience!
Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don't be afraid. Frederick Buechner.

Shipping policies

All of my items are custom orders. Please allow 7-10 days for me to personally create, package & ship your order. Keep in mind when you're ordering that my block of awesome paintings can take up to 3 weeks depending on how swamped I am!

All orders are shipped via USPS ground. If you desire a tracking number & insurance & all that fancy stuff, let me know & I can ship it to you at an additional cost via priority mail.

For international orders, send me a convo & I can tell you how much it will cost to get it to you!

P.S. I use salvaged wood for some of my creations which means there will be slight imperfections or knots in the wood grain. I think It adds to the organic character of it & is a good reminder that you have saved that particular piece of wood from eternal doom in a stupid landfill.

Additional policies

It's a proven fact that people who own lemons with a pea creations are automatically cool.
