Nothing like a good stretch to release all of the tension in my mind, body, and soul. Yoga is nourishing in a way that I never knew possible.

For those of you who are like me, and have issues with anxiety, it may seem overwhelming to nail those perfect poses that you see in the yoga tags. Someone once gave me the greatest advice:

Keep your eyes on your own mat.

I grow every day with this practice, and in a small way do I mean physically. I am on a journey, and I’m not sure where it will lead, but I do know that it will be a peaceful path.



Russian artist Yulia Brodskaya creates playful illustrations, installations and paper cut works using a unique method she developed after leaving her graphic design job in 2006. The artist rolls tiny strips of colorful paper into spirals that she aggregates into larger shapes, creating textural works that lie somewhere on the horizon between two and three dimensions. Her whimsical, springy work invites a sense of optimism. While paper cut art is typically a small-scale medium, Brodskaya often creates mural-sized artworks and installations for commercial clients, using paper to transform rigid spaces into fantastical realms.

Papercraft has been on my list of “cool things I wanna do” for a while. This is amazing!
