I’m so excited to share the news with you that we (my husband and I) have designed some great mugs, T-shirts and other fun items based on my photography and art designs!
We’ve named our store Takara Spirit designs – “Takara” is one possible combination of my husband’s name (Takeshi) and my own, and it also means “treasure” in Japanese – which I just love!
All of the designs have a “spiritual” focus or feel to them, and these were intended to bring that much joy, happiness, serenity and empowerment into the world.
Here are some of the designs you will see featured in the shop, which you can access HERE!
We hope you enjoy taking a look at Takara Spirit Designs, and we’ll be adding many more designs, so keep checking back!
Tammy and Takeshi
let’s work backwards,
to get where are,
which is where we long
so we can build ourselves
(how often we need to
build ourselves up again,
after a fall, how
shattered the heart).
Let’s start with that place
on the other side of memory,
where we find
bliss, which is pure joy,
back to contentment and peace,
and then harmony between
self and our world of touch
and our world of fantasy,
through the gathering of
insides and out,
digging through the tendrils of night
and taking in, knowing from
wells of ancestral wisdom how to
outstretch our hands in giving and receiving
because we’ve seen others, and
allowed for our own tender witnessing,
to see love in our own eyes,
which reflects every one of us,
the fragile corners of our secret pain
bringing us into sacred congregation,
the yearning for wholeness coming from
deep wells of oceanic wisdom
but we can find it in
in the holiness of everyday things
now that we are here,
a shared smile, a deep-bellied
laugh, arms wrapped around a
tree, arms wrapped around
