Hi friends, hello!

Last night I chopped off too much of my hair (whoops), and I have been thinking about what it means to feel "beautiful." It is so complicated. I want others to know they are objectively beautiful, because they areβ€”YOU AREβ€”even though I question my own worth and beauty all the time. You can read about it here.

Here's what else has been on my mind.

Obsessed with the gentle woodworking of Ido Yoshimoto right now... such a beautiful treatment of materials.

These ceramics!

Super flattered to be in Cosmopolitan along with some of my favorite people (including one of the stars of Bridgerton, whoa).

My sister is such an inspiration and we'll be chatting on my IG LIVE this Thursday at 9am PST about creative businesses and more.

When I feel hopeless, I've been tuning into this podcast, specifically.

We started a new Practice workshop in April and I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT. If you want to join us, the May session is going to be all about Creative Business.

Or drop in to one of these cool weekly salons. (No one's turned away for lack of funds.)

The auction for my work closed this weekend, but you should still support The Cr8tors! They're running creative auctions through May to #StopAsianHate.

I loved talking with my friend from grad school last week. Have you read her book? You can listen to us chat about How To Do Nothing on my IG Live.

Lastly, this is the sweetest candle I have ever seen.

I hope you have a wonderful week. I love you.
