An illustration of an Eastern Bluebird that I finished up this morning. The Bluebird is a symbol of happiness. Something cheerful to keep with us as the days grow shorter... (at least in this part of the world!)
This bluebird feels perfect for today because it is chilly and rainy in the mountains of North Carolina. Most of the songbirds are flying south, and the frost two nights ago killed the last of our flowers and basil. I feel as though I am noticing this shift of seasons more acutely than some years, and it feels bittersweet to say goodbye to all the abundance and color.

A new illustration I finished last week. I think I was subconsciously calling in the peaceful spirit of the deer as I was frantically trying to squeeze in all the mini projects I wanted/needed to complete before my weekend at the Southeastern Wise Women Herbal Retreat. And now that the weekend has come and gone I can look back on this little fawn and see this was exactly what I needed at the time. 

The conference was amazing (as always). Women travel from far distances to get to it, and I feel extra lucky it is basically in my own backyard. Each year this weekend re-calibrates my eyes and heart to be less critical of myself and others and to take better care of my body and spirit. My friend Nikki came to help me in the booth and we had a really wonderful time meeting new friends, drinking tea, and working our butts off selling my tiny art. 
Good times.


where i am at

Sooo, you may have noticed that I have been a spotty blogger of late and for that I am sorry. 
Life and work have been full and I have been having a hard time keeping up with all of it, and my trusty old blog is getting the short end of the stick. I love this blog because it takes a lot of thought and care~ and yet for that very reason I have been finding myself using my instagram and my business facebook page more often than not.  
Because they are fast. They are a blip, a snapshot. They don't take as much thought or care.
And that is where I am at these days I guess for better or worse. I am not giving up on the space I have spent the last five years carving out, I am just admitting to you, to myself, that if you want to see more of me you might want to visit me on instagram >>> @kelceyloomer
or at my facebook page >>> Seed & Sky Facebook

Much love,
