Only you

Mission St. lanterns, Canon Digital Rebel

I’m swimming in a sea of Mother’s Day orders. Little colorful bits of glass dance in my head as I sleep. So many superhero moms this year!

Will hopefully get back to writing soon. For now, I will leave you with a quote from one of my favorite people in the world, Gordon Mackenzie.

“If you go to your grave
without painting your masterpiece,
it will not get painted.
No one else can paint it.
Only you.”
– Gordon MacKenzie, Orbiting the Giant Hairball

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    When I read that poem, a song immediately jumped into my head – appropriately called ‘Only You’ from the musical Starlight Express’…

    A beautiful string of GRASS & SKY arrived for me earlier this week. I am continually surprised at how it sings and shines up to me each time I wear it. I am convinced it has magic in it, it is revealed to me in the way it glows.
    I wanted to thank you Andrea for putting beauty into the world, to name just one way, in your jewelry designs.

    My earrings arrived yesterday. I love them ~ thank you! You should start an ‘Earrings of the Month Club’. I’ll be your first member!
