PICK IT UP IF IT STRIKES YOU
Did you notice that I snuck them in?
ToolBoxEarth's very first themed eight piece collection, Glimmers, was released over the weekend.
But, before I introduce you to each of the pieces, I'd like to tell you a bit more about what the magic ToolBoxEarth and I are working with, and what we intend to do with it.
What pulls you in, lulls you? One of the constant, woven themes here at ToolBoxEarth is representing origins.
Shining a light on what we as humans have in common, the blocks we were all built from. The pieces of those blocks that still remain in each of us.
Honesty, that's my answer. If something, or someone, exudes honesty, I'm in and the more palpable the honesty, the more interested I become.
And that's what's to be discovered here at ToolBoxEarth.
A depiction of what honesty in origins looks like.
Moments of safety and stillness on your journey back to whatever origin you need to meet with.
Offered moments for your home.
Woven slices that reflect deeply inward and shine ever outward.
For journeying we all are.
Picking up what strikes us, and shedding what weighs us down.
Cloak yourself in grounded calmness.
Pick it up if it strikes you.
Pick it up if it GLIMMERS.

Or your wall space.
Do not get down.
Take the high road.
We'll meet you there.
Thank you for being here for this moment.
