This is a painting about Graham, the apple of my eye, as a beautiful witch with silver socks, serving tea and spells on a glacier. I love witches and glaciers and Graham! It’s called Glacier Tea.
It’s related to Soul Tea which is kinda a portrait of me.
whoaaa this lil fortune teller zine i made has 65k+ notes! that’s pretty cool.
it’s full of good advice ;)
if you like, you can still get it up in my ✿ shop ✿ as well as other zines and hand painted lockets and pretty prints (usually about witches, curanderas and ghosts).
August favorites🌿late summer fruit, thrifted plates, new sturdy keychain, salt soap, a new bread knife, and a beeswax Venus candle from my new favorite shop, “palace” (in Portland).
I don’t know what this is but it looks so refreshing and delicious.
I woke up with my hair in it’s true soft, curly and puffy glory.
My pretty pillow, my walls and the banana paleta that I had for breakfast all matched!
i’m really just a grumpy little abuelita fighting white supremacy and patriarchy underneath it all.
while mending quilts and eating peaches.

Yesterday I got a call from my sister Cheeraz Gormon in St. Louis who was standing with poet Elizabeth Vega. They wanted me to know that a few women had created, on lawns, in the streets, healing stations, a place where the youth could come and scream and cry and be held and heard in love. Mighty work. — Dream Hampton
this made me cry.
The police in Ferguson are spraying tear gas and arresting peaceful protesters and reporters (2 reporters so far). Christina Coleman is an NBC Channel 5 news anchor from St. Louis…Son.
