shop update + a Wild Goose journal entry
It’s time for a SHOP UPDATE!
I have just finished updating my shop with some delightful inventory, including a few fun things i’ve never offered online before. I’m very excited to be offering these things to y’all!
(psst! scroll down for a free shipping code.)
Here are a few things you can find in the shop:
These circular calendars show the seasons of the church year with their corresponding liturgical colors. Starting from the largest green section and moving clockwise, the sections of the collage represent Ordinary Time, Advent, Christmas, Ordinary Time, Lent, Easter, and Pentecost.
Carry around with you a beautiful and tangible intention for peace, hope, joy, or love. Featuring five different intentions, these collaged mementos wrap around a vintage wooden thread spool.
A set of four quilted coasters, made from a variety of linens and printed cotton. The coasters are made in a traditional “Flying Geese” quilt block pattern.
shop here for printed cotton and here for linen
Selected prints from my Affirmations Series and my Sacred Seams Series. These archival gicleé prints are 6x8” and printed on somerset velvet paper.
Sacred Seams, a visio divina deck
An oldie but a goodie 😎 A printed deck of cards with 30 images of unique textile collages (plus one for the backs). These cards and their corresponding guidebook serve as a tool for a beautiful prayer/meditation practice based around art rather than words.
Patchwork Rainbow Clergy Stole
Made from a rainbow’s worth of different fabrics and textures. This stole is approximately 50” long (down one side from the center back) and 5” wide.
15% of proceeds from all rainbow stoles will be donated to Southerners on New Ground.

Brief Thoughts from the Wild Goose Festival
Friday, July 15, 2022
I spent the early morning taking a slow walk along gravel roads before the festival woke up. The grass was wet, the air was cool, and the birds sung energetically. I shared the road with a few joggers and early risers, exchanging smiles and “good morning”s. The thing inside me that knows what home is recognizes this place, even though I’ve never been to this particular patch of earth. I feel peace.
Being a vendor here at the Wild Goose Festival is truly a special experience. I have felt such genuine, beautiful connection with many folks who stop by our tent and with our fellow craft vendors and their families. I have had many conversations with those who have experienced, as I have, the depth of sacredness to be found within creative practice.
Now flash back to a few short days ago. If you had asked me then (as I was still working on inventory for this festival) about the sacredness of creativity, I would have rolled my eyes at you and told you to come back later. I can have these deep, meaningful conversations now because I am in a place—physically, emotionally, and spiritually—to do so. Gatherings like these are oases along the journey—fertile and nourishing, yet temporary.
But while spaces like this are temporary now, they are also prophetic and imaginative with regard to the future. They help us to imagine a world in which relational, justice-seeking, creative daily rhythms could be more present in our lives. They give us an opportunity to practice this way of life together.
As you go through your day-to-day, I hope you seek out opportunities to practice this imaginative way of being. Remember that even though you may be accustomed to structuring your day around productivity, there is something different to be experienced as well—community, interconnectedness, generosity, beauty, and rest.
lots of love,
