There's nothing that excites me most than getting my heart sparked up by those whose passion goes beyond what eyes could see. You must have discovered Good4You during your long hours of browsing Etsy (admit it, it keeps you glued to your seat right?). Owned by an inspirational woman, Jes, she creates all her handmade herbal salves, teas, bath & beauty products in Cataumet, MA-USA. She spends her time gathering wild-crafted herbal plants from abandoned fields to appreciate gifts of the earth. Looking at all the plants she has collected, the fields must be pretty heavenly. Also, not only Jes has a passion in herbalism, but she is quite the artist (check out her Tumblr and Orange Peel Project)! I just adore her. I don't think I have never been this pushed to get back into drawing again.. I miss my beloved charcoals and get my hands and apron dirty all over. That, and also my mum hysterically screaming from across the hallway to tell me it's time to have dinner while I'm losing myself in my black and white canvas. I would say one moment, please. Sometimes I forget the simple things in life could make me the happiest.
