For many years I dreamt of creating tools to help women heal, connect and nourish themselves. It’s been slow going as I’ve continued along with my own personal healing journey, but we’re getting there, and I’ve been starting to finalize some of the creations that have nearly been bursting at the seams all this time. Putting them in the shop, seeing them become real-life, in-the-physical tools for women to enjoy, watching them go from idea in my journal to available, well, that feels pretty good! In the shop there are slow-stitch patterns with original, encouraging sayings and a growing collection of writing prompts and planner and wellness printable pages.

These inspirational patterns began as my word of the year at the start of 2022. I knew my word “thrive” was big enough that it was going to require lots and lots of reminders. Slow stitching these reminders has become such a nourishing practice.


Over the course of the next few months, I’ll be adding more to this series of coloring-in wellness pages. I see coloring in these pages as an attention practice and more and more am finding this to be a valuable addition to my practices, in fact, I’m finding it to be a tool that allows me to STICK WITH my practices more consistently.

Now this one’s been a labor of love, for sure. I’ve wanted to create this for years and knew exactly how I wanted it to be, and it came out perfectly. Twelve whole months of coloring-in calendar pages, complete with holidays and moon cycle phases. I have been thoroughly enjoying turning to a new page as I color my way into each new month!

This daisy chain tracker includes a 21 day and a 30 day daisy chain​​​​​​​​. This was inspired by Jerry Seinfeld’s method for consistently sticking with his writing. Whenever he met his goal for the day, he wrote a big red X on a large calendar, and as the days went by, he watched the chain of red X’s form, encouraging him to continue. He said that once the chain begins to form, our only job is to not break the chain.​​​​​​​​ I created this prettier-than-red-X’s version of a practice tracker. Coloring in a daisy each time I show up for my practice is a small reward I look forward to, and once I see three to five colored-in daisies in a row, I am not nearly as willing to compromise on the new habit I am creating!​​​​​​​​

Here are some other opportunities for exploring guided contemplative writing:
