A Brief Word on Waistbeads…

They are literally for EVERY body.

of ALL ages

babies to great-grannies

your waistbeads are for YOU!

eff everybody else’s gaze. you don’t have to show them to ANYBODY.

please don’t let your size or an extra curve or two or “lack of a waist” keep you from the experience of wearing waistbeads.


they are wonderful for cultivating self love and joy. you aren’t “too ANYTHING” to love on yourself.

go on and decorate yourself, boo.

Summer of Retrogrades

Okay it’s really only like 6 of them. But still…they’ve already started, but they’ll all be in the mix by early August.








Generally speaking retrogrades slow things down. It is important to note that they slow NEW stuff down…but everything that’s been dangling out there in an unfinished state in your life? now is the time.

put on your best bra, some eyeliner and KNUCKLE UP!!! COMPLETE THAT WORK/WERK, BOO!!!

Holiday Help

Okay ladies and gents…as you know…I’m growing a business in the midst of living my real life. 

I need some guinea pigs… 

What you get out of it: 

You tell me what part of the holidays stresses you out…and you get an assistant with recommendations and links to help you get organized…de stressed and figure this thang out…

this includes…

mental health care coaching for dealing with difficult relatives and/or loss during a time when everyone else is “happy”

gift buying advice

meal planning

…and i’m also taking recommendations on what all you need to feel less stressed throughout the holidays.

Cause i’m a mf ELF in this piece. I used to be embarrassed about it…but there’s so much foolishness in the world to feel bad about that I decided that I get to feel excited when the air starts to get crisp and I feel the urge to start listening to Christmas music way before it’s “time.”

What I need in exchange: 

Testimonials and feedback to help me create better services for my people. I have 8 spots left. Let me know if you’re interested. 

Big Hugs and Big Love, 


New in Shop!

treemings® limited edition silk scarves

26.5 inches square, these silk scarves are 100% habutai. (“Habutai” is Japanese for “downy and soft”). Habutai is a sheer silk. Each scarf is hand hemmed. Allow 3 weeks for delivery.

The colors and designs of treemings® scarves are always the product of nature and the photographer’s eye. Each image is limited to only ten pieces. A small inconspicuous identification number (printed with the image, not by label) identifies each piece as a treemings® scarf and indicates the size, the title of the image and which of the ten uses of the image the particular scarf represents. For example, the next “pinkDogwoodSunset” will say treemings®



01 pinkDogwoodSunset 02

The 01 means it is 26.5 inches square. “pinkDogwoodSunset” is the image title, and the 02 means it is the second of ten items to be sold with this image.

Furthermore, your scarf can be personalized. Your initials, your full name, or if it’s a gift, even the occasion, can be inconspicuously printed onto the silk within the image, in a spot other than where the treemings logo will be. For example, “made for Lynn Dale, for her birthday, 2013.” We recommend that your personalized message be no more than 45 characters in length.

With your order, indicate the name of the image, and the letters or words you want in the personalized spot.
