“When I think about how craft­ing makes me feel, I al­ways come back to the word ‘mer­aki’, which means to ‘do some­thing with soul, cre­ativ­ity, or love; to put some­thing of your­self into your work’. See­ing your idea be­come a piece of art you can hold in your hands is an­other level of hap­pi­ness and achieve­ment. I take a lot of in­spi­ra­tion from mind­ful­ness – my workspace is full of post­cards and pieces of art that have pos­i­tive mantras on them. Cre­ativ­ity is con­ta­gious. That’s why I chose the quote that I did for the de­sign.

This stel­lar lit­tle pen­nant is a great way to im­prove your stitch­ing pre­ci­sion and prac­tice (or learn, if you’re a be­gin­ner) whipped back­stitch! Use your pen­nant to dec­o­rate a nook, or make a gift for a cre­ative pal.”
