Caroline, Canon Rebel Xti

You may not know this, but I have a supersister! and her name is Caroline. Perhaps it was something in the water supply in Los Angeles where we were born, or maybe something the hippies were smoking in Santa Cruz where we were raised, but we both grew up to love beads and to make jewelry. We were those ten-year-old girls with the teeny tiny seed beads and dental floss making the dangly earrings so popular in the 80’s.

Times have changed though, and Caroline is launching a brand new online store called Ruby Loves. I wanted to give her a shout out today in celebration! Her work is really beautiful, so go take a look!

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.

    this comment has nothing to do with the current post, but when I was in my car this morning I was listening to NPR. I heard Jonatha Brooke in an interview talking about Woody Guthrie and singing. I thought to myself, I “know” Jonatha b/c of your blog and was reminded what a small world we live in. Thanks again for sharing such a beautiful blog.
    Peace from the Heartland.
