The Constancy of Change

gdn

Last summer I said that tinctory died. This winter she was born again.

One of the most important lessons of the last few years has been to always look for what actually is regardless of what I thought is or what 'ought to' be. Even if it doesn't seem to make sense at the time. That and also the constancy of change. This too shall pass...

A. started pre-school for a few hours a week and I've been making things again. Stretching my wings a little. I've nearly given up on them. Will they still hold?

This is all to say that I've reopened my shop and there will be an update soon. I will preview everything here first. From then on I'm hoping to finish a few pieces now and again, circumstances permitting.

I feel grateful for all your comments on the last post. And for anybody out there still reading this! Here's to a happy 2015.

certainly, in my heart i was hoping that tinctory had not forever closed.
i look forward to new posts, new tinctory items, but also i hope that you guard your precious soul and spend much-needed time with your daughter.

I think it is hard to deny a creative urge...just go with the flow, as time allows.
Here's to a joyful New Year!

I'm so glad you're starting again. Life is transient and change is constant...wonderful new necklaces!

I am so happy you are making things again! I discovered your work just as you closed Tinctory and today when I saw the Flickr I was delighted.

I have missed your post, but especially your art. I think what you do is magical.

I can't believe your child is old enough for preschool. Seems just yesterday you were posting about the pregnancy and birth.

Will be looking for your next posts.

Oh Eva, I've missed you ! I'm so glad you are posting again, and making again ! It takes some times to find yourself again after you've had a baby. Days are unfortunately unstretchable, I know that too well.
Welcome back to the blogging world ! I hope you're all doing great !

I must admit that I was heartbroken to see you go. You've given me so much inspiration over the past several years. I'm beyond thrilled to see you in this space again. Much love from Michigan :)

Thrilled to bits, because I LOVE your work, fully regret not being able to get one of the pomegranate style pieces in particular. Wonderful to see your work again.
