"Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest." – Maya Angelou
Friends, I adore this quote by beloved Maya Angelou. Last week I attended the Emerging Women conference in New York City, where the late Angelou was to be the keynote speaker. Her spirit infused the conference and each of us attendees walked away with the sparks in our hearts burning a little brighter.
Courage has been a touchstone throughout my career, one of the consistent mantras I return to again and again. Like Maya Angelou said, it takes courage to practice kindness, to give generously, to be honest (with myself and others).
Friends, we're so excited to unveil a few of our BRAND NEW products to celebrate your courage and bravery! Take a look!

An oldie but a goodie – this Hello Courage wall plaque actually hangs in my home studio! I look up at it hanging above my window and take a moment to say hello to my courage, recognize that it has always been there, waiting to take flight. Love love the rustic feel of this sign, and at more than two feet long, it is definitely a statement piece!
