“Marci brought a new creative energy to the Lehigh Valley edition of Natural Awakenings in early 2008. She has worked directly with many advertisers for years to create print advertisements that project the unique image of clients and get results. She has also created eye-catching, effective newsletters for our readers that reach thousands each month. Her newsletter formats have been copied by other publishers in the Natural Awakenings family. I can count on Marci to deliver quality graphic designs that meet our schedule and our budget. Her patience in working directly with advertisers as well as our demanding schedule make Marci a valued asset in our freelance team. I trust Marci completely and rely on her to maintain the financial, database and operational function of several complex internet systems. Marci communicates well through email and voicemail when production schedules limit the ability to communicate in person or directly on the phone. Marci will make a positive impact on any project she works on.”

one day at a time

one day at a time inspirational jewelryOne day at a time
this is enough.
Do not look back
and grieve over the past
for it is gone;
and do not be troubled
about the future,
for it has not yet come.
Live in the present,
and make it so beautiful
it will be worth remembering.”

“Sometimes you have to
let everything go—purge yourself.
If you are unhappy with anything—
whatever is bringing you down—get rid of it.
Because you will find that when you are free,
your true creativity, your true self comes out.”

– Tina Turner

inspirational jewelry

While I am running, my mind is focused on everything and nothing. My body knows what it’s doing but I check in with it often … shoulders down, strong core, neutral pelvis, elbows in, fast feet … the list goes on. How’s my breath? I check my time and pace. Then, my mind floats away … green grass, birds, cracks in the pavement, rocks, wedgie, sweat in my eyes, cars, flowers … where am I going today? Shoulders down, easy focus. I am creating jewelry, ads, newsletters, photos, my blog … I am inspired. What’s for dinner? How’s my pace? Fast feet … 1,2,3,1,2,3 … shoulders down, strong core, neutral pelvis, elbows in. Almost home. I don’t want the adventure to end but I know it’s time to stop, stretch, and rest for my next run.

It’s been a very busy and exciting week in my studio – I received my first wholesale order for my shrink plastic jewelry! At first I thought that “wholesale” might take the creative feeling out of my work. As I prepared the order, I was happy to find that I enjoyed the uniqueness of each piece that I created.
