IT'S TIME TO
LoVE YOUr MoTHeR
I make and sell art because of the way it makes me feel and the way I hope it makes others feel. For most of my life, there was only one other thing that made me feel as free, loved, in awe, insignificant, and important as art--nature. Most of my art is inspired by nature, or at least heavily influenced by it.
As such, I wanted to do something that mattered that married this love of art and love of nature. I believe we are all capable of giving of ourselves and we give what we can with what we have. I have art and this is one small thing I can do. But it is the small steps that lead to the big changes.
PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE WATER CYCLE, GROUNDING THE WATER IN THEIR ROOTS AND RELEASING IT INTO THE ATMOSPHERE.
OF THE WORLD'S FORESTS ARE ALREADY DESTROYED.
ONLY 20% OF THE FORESTS ARE PROPERLY PROTECTED.
AND FOREST DEGRADATION CAN CAUSE BIODIVERSITY TO DECLINE. WHEN FOREST COVER IS REMOVED, WILDLIFE IS DEPRIVED OF HABITAT AND BECOMES MORE VULNERABLE. DEFORESTATION PUTS AT RISK A MAJORITY OF THE EARTH’S BIODIVERSITY.
ROOTS TO ANCHOR THE SOIL AND WITH INCREASED EXPOSURE TO SUN, THE SOIL CAN DRY OUT, LEADING TO PROBLEMS LIKE INCREASED FLOODING AND INABILITY TO FARM.

Creation Care has become an intrinsic part of my business and I'm always looking for fun ways I can get you involved, too. (Check out my Instagram highlights labeled "🌎💚🌿" to find my ongoing collection of practical everyday ways to live and learn together about caring for the earth.)
As long as I'm selling stickers, I won't end this program, and I've already expanded it from 2 stickers to 11 stickers!
I choose every planting location with intentionality; it is either based on personal requests or order locations. I think there is something magical about planting a tree in the very community of the person who, by the purchase of stickers, has made that tree possible.
If no request is made, I spread the remaining reforesting donations to National Forests in Need and areas affected by fires such as California, Oregon, and the Amazon.
Thank you for supporting this program and joining my efforts to do what we can, how we can, with what we have.
THAT ARE COOL TO KNOW
