Evelyn: I am living more colorfully, slowly finding pieces that represent me—artifacts that sing to my identity. I was stopped today and complimented, and the term "eclectic" fell on my ears in a way that made me stand tall, eager, and deeply recognized. I have been hearing that word more often this last year, and the vertical stripes on my new dreamy scarf, full of mermaid colors and a cool snowflake feel, is yet another artifact in my gentle authentic transformation. I enjoy finding my boldness—pushing out who I am through my clothes, though my words, through my art,  in ways I had never dared before...(faster than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound!)

Monica: It's been a long time since I've worn anything more decorative than my wedding ring and a simple pair of silver & turquoise earrings. Earlier this week, I broke out the mascara and raided my jewelry box to decorate myself a little differently. This morning I pulled these earrings off my jewelry tree, a pair I found for $3.00 at my favorite used bookstore in Tucson. Instantly, I felt a bit more elegant. It's amazing what a little sparkle can do.
