    Yes, indeed our words can be silver and gold – precious things.

  2. Jane says:

    Hi Rachel
    silver and gold is beautiful. I’ve browsed your Etsy store more than once since I ‘met’ you. without even having to revisit, I can tell you that my absolute favourite print would be the mother and daughter… “how much to you love me? The last number.” When I showed it to my daughter Stella and she gave me a big hug. I would be so grateful to go into your giveaway. thank you.

    Yes, I agree with Clare – they CAN be silver and gold – and when they are they even can develop into diamonds! Big karate sometimes! ๐Ÿ™‚

    How to choose from all of that beauty ?

    I chose Day & Night. When counting my blessings, having found you and your heart is among them…
    Happy Monday, Beautiful !

  11. Loved every one of your works on all three pages! If I had to choose, it’d be “Constellations.” Keep up the good work. The world needs more hopeful, joyful voices. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Liz says:

    Of all your joyful designs, I would say my favorite is the untamed life. Thanks for sharing your delightful art.

    What an opportunity. This new one is wonderful though I also love Butterfly Wings and Soaking. Thanks for making inspiring art. Cheers!

  14. jan says:

    Hi Rachel, everything in your collection is so beautiful + yummy + soul + heart , including gold and silver. It is so hard to choose just one. I narrowed it down to four. Linger a little Longer, Untamed life, I make rainbows when I leap, What we love matters.

  15. Raychel says:

    While I love everything in the shop and would frame them all on my walls, I think my favorite is Flower Shower! So colorful and happy! Your work is always so heartwarming and makes my soul happy! Always inspiring!

  16. Oh I love all your drawings! They all speak to me and make me feel connected, thankyou for this kind give-away!

  18. Trish says:

    How kind…
    Impossible to choose..but I do love ‘to the brim’ it fills me with happiness.
    Much love to you.

  19. Goodness, YOU are a treasure! And none of the gold-plated nonsense. You are pure, through and through. This is beautiful! I love that chair and, of course, her stripy socks. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Aaaaaah! Anything in your shop would be a wonderful gift! Perhaps Soaking, because that’s what I would love to do but never have time.


  20. You are super sweet Rachel! I love your “Practice Being Strong”, there is a lot of power in it!
    Hugs and blessings

  21. chrissy says:

  22. I so love your heart
    that sees and loves
    the gold and silver
    hidden in others,
    precious jewel that you are:)
    there is only love,

  23. Briana, MA says:

    HI Rachel,
    It was so, so hard to pick just one, but I think I’ll have to go with “To the Brim”. I love the message of the print, as well as all of that orange!

  30. RebuildYourLifeCoach says:

    I’m new here. I love your art and total style- it’s whimsical, childlike and colorful- all my speed. But what got me to your site was the name, All I Do Is Listen. Love it. I too am a listener. I have a beautiful print hanging here in my workroom that says, What If I Just … and then there’s a drawing of a conch shell.. and then it says, Listen. I will certainly be back.

  31. Piarom says:

    my favorite is “when your hot your hot” it is so funny and have such powerful colors. I love it! Giveaway sounds great :-)… your new one with silver and gold is so sweet.. how she sits there and write…she is so endearing ๐Ÿ™‚ …hugs โ™ฅ

  34. Isabel says:

    Love them all but Love the new one :O)

  35. Julia says:

    How could I ever pick just one?

    Hmm, I think, since I have to, I’d say “The World Waits,” I love that drawing/those words so much.

    From my heart to yours
    so much love,


  36. Milena says:

  37. They’re all so special. But pressed to pick, the colorful home one is my favorite.

  38. Laurie says:

    I am totally smitten with what I love matters:) Your work is lovely

  39. I feel like singing a little burl ives now:) i think he was the one who sang silver and gold on that old christmas special. So hard to choose just one…I think I like soaking in my very precious life.
