taking in my full garden

By Rachel Awes on March 5, 2012

i have been working on a book called “all i did was listen” in stages for a few years now. as i completed the narrative portion of my latest draft, i went to my drawing table + made this new print. there is an increased fullness coming forward. maybe i’ll share a page (in progress) here soon. sending love to all the fullness increasing in each of you as well.
(the print, mug, tee + one other new tee all etsy added w/love http://rachelawes.etsy.com/)
