Fall Equinox & Five Benefits of Embracing Autumn

Fall Equinox

Today, Thursday, September 22nd marks the beginning of the Fall season or fall equinox.

The Fall Equinox is the astronomical moment when the Sun crosses the celestial equator from north to south. This occurs on September 22, 23, or 24 every year. In the Northern Hemisphere, it marks the beginning of fall (autumn), while in the Southern Hemisphere it marks the beginning of spring.

Equinoxes happen twice a year (around March 20 and September 22), when day and night are of roughly equal duration all over the world and the Sun rises exactly in the east and sets exactly in the west. The word "equinox" comes from Latin, meaning "equal night."

During an equinox, the tilt of Earth's axis is neither pointing towards nor away from the Sun. As a result, there is an equal amount of daylight and nighttime across most latitudes on Earth. The only exception is at the poles, where there are 24 hours of sunlight (during summer) or 24 hours of darkness (during winter).

The fall equinox is not only important for agriculture, but for our weather and spiritual well-being too. When this astronomical event  takes place, a moment of stillness takes place before the Earth shifts in direction. Our days become longer and the nights shrink shorter. There are some of us who may experience a decrease in energy the same way the temperature decreases in heat. 

There is also the opportunity to take inventory of the parts that are working versus not working within each department of your life (work, school, family, love, etc.). If there are negative thoughts, feelings, or people you are holding onto from previous seasons, the Fall Equinox can encourage you to let go and release that which isn’t serving you while embracing that which is. 

The Fall Equinox encourages us to slow down, stop and smell the roses by engaging with our self-awareness. Think about the things you can do to practice self-care, rest, and self-awareness in the most effective way for you. Going with the flow of this transitional period can help you prepare for the next season while soaking in gratitude for how far you’ve come.

Thanks for reading, and enjoy this season!

July's Birthstone RUBY IN ZOISITE





Found primarily in Tanzania, this stone is a natural fusion of  Ruby (July’s Birthstone) encapsulated in Zoisite. Very often you will find this stone mistaken for  Ruby in Fuchsite.  Below is a side-by-side comparison. 


 For me, the most distinct way to tell them apart is to look for the aqua border around ruby when found in Fuchsite, which also happens to be a little more aqua in color. 

It has a vibrant concentration of color but is great for spiritual connection and happy joyous vibes. 


This rare stone provides the energy of joy, happiness, and gratitude.  It is related to the Heart Chakra and helps to energize the heart and open it to divine love.  If you are going through the throes of grief this is a great stone to combat it.  




Patchwork Festival Recap

We presented our goods at the Patchwork Show which is a local makers market featuring 175 vendors.  The show is always free to attend and is a family, pet-friendly environment.  The market happens twice a year with a Winter Holiday and a Spring/Summer show, in various cities.  This year we were vendors at the Tustin show and at Long Beach this past weekend.  So if you missed one this past weekend catch us in the Fall!  A big thank you to all who came out and supported us!

Here are a few details of the show, and some pictures.  Show highlights from the show and of course some pictures.

7 Stones for grief


As it relates to grief (which I am deeply acquainted with), it is common to do just about ALL OF THE THINGS just to simply ease some of the pain and get a little relief.  Below I have included 7 crystals for grief to help aid in the healing process.  I hope this helps if you ever find yourself in the midst of bereavement.  Please let me know your thoughts, I'm interested in sharing even more ways of coping with loss. 


1. Amethyst- Known for aiding with difficulty sleeping amethyst soothes anxiousness and insomnia. Due to its use in helping foster connection to your higher power this stone can help sustain you as sometimes grief can cause doubt in your beliefs and separation.

2. Black Onyx- Is a grounding and centering stone that provides strength, and promotes stamina, which is well needed as mourning can render you zapped of motivation and energy. Another plus to this stone is that like many black stones it absorbs negative energy and is a great protection tool against all the unwanted strife that sometimes accompanies loss.

3. Lepidolite- A rare stone of sorts raises consciousness and soothes as well as provides calm.

4. Rose Quartz- Known as the Love Stone, rose quartz helps stimulate self-love and care and nurture the love and kindness that may not be readily accessible. It can be extremely difficult to maintain self-care habits so Rose Quartz can help combat that.

5. Moonstone- Stones with high vibrations can help you reach a higher state of being. Often times with grief the goal is to get gradual relief until you are able to reach a state of acceptance and then peace.

6. Pyrite- Lack of sleep, lack of basic self-care, and the stress during a loss can be physically taxing on your system. For this reason, pyrite supports your adrenal gland and prevents burnout.

7. Smokey Quartz- This smoky variety of quartz can help sustain and keep you rooted as your emotions ebb and flow. Consider this stone to anchor you while processing your darker thoughts.

Placing stones on a bedside table, under your bed, in your bra, or wearing them in jewelry are all ways you can use them for support. If you place it in your bra just be mindful to avoid funny public situations.

5 ways to get back to YOU!



Every year we can become more and more of ourselves.

Sometimes this takes intention and action on our part. Especially if we have been giving so much that we find oversells lost, depleted, or feeling like a fraction of ourselves. Other times life hits so hard that you are just barley staying afloat.  If you've experienced a life altering event that renders you unsure of yourself or whatever the circumstance if you are feeling lake a former version of you, here are a few tips to lead you back home. 


1. Write a list of 1-100 things you use to like to do when you were a child. Ex: Being in nature, gardening, skipping, coloring, kissing, swinging....

I mean it!  Think about the things you use to do as a child that made you happy. Get in touch with your inner child. If you don't remember you can always just write down things that will bring you joy now. Perhaps something that you've wanted to do but haven't made time to do.


2. Get out and DO it! Spend some time doing some of the things on your list. The Artist's Way is a life changing book that I highly recommend.  Julia Cameron the author suggest going on weekly artist dates, where you take you (and just you) out and treat yourself. It can be a trip to the farmers market where you purchase your favorite in season fruit, or to a thrift store, buy a box of old school candy ( and don't share it)... The point being get in tune again.  Because often times we forget what we even like to do.  Referring to the list will keep you connected.


3. Visualize who you want to be. You may be so clouded that you need to totally reinvent yourself like the Phoenix.  In this case visualization is a powerful tool.  Take 5-10 minutes each day, or as often as you can to visualize and feel into the person you want to become.

Ex: Create a vision board with aspirational pictures, and or journal what this version of you would be, and feel like.


4. Search the Holy Text for Scriptures on who GOD Says you are!  What better way to remember who you are than by reading the CREATOR'S thoughts on the matter.  Write down the ones that align the most with you.


5. Say affirmations daily.  You could refer to #4 and create affirmations from the scriptures you wrote, or create some new ones that resonate.  Visualize who you are becoming and affirm those characteristics! 


I hope this helps.


The power of Color

Across cultures colors represent similar feelings.  There are many books, and countless studies on how color can affect us.  Color therapy also known as Chromotherapy has been a powerful tool in healing physical and mental health.  


What I find fascinating is that many of the stone meanings directly correlate to the color of the stone.  This guide is a great place to start when approaching what colors may work best for you.  Always pay attention to how the color makes you feel, intuition matters too!



Chakras! What are they?

Hi and welcome to my newsletter. Today we will talk a little about chakras, their role in the body and what crystals and stones can help keep them in tip-top condition.


What are chakras?

You are more than your physical body. The physical body is the house of universal energy (chi) that flows through it. The energy flows through points in the body called chakras (a Sanskrit word that means “wheel of light”). Chakras cannot be seen with the naked eye as they are not physical organs. The chakras are like little wheels that rotate or spin as the energy flows through them, nourishing your body. When energy enters the chakra, it enters as yin energy and when it flows through it exits as yang energy. This allows the body to remain balanced. 

There are seven major chakras in the body. These are energy points (loosely located along the spine – see diagram). 

These can become blocked or clogged when we experience trauma, upset, bullying, etc. They can also become unbalanced when we over or under use them, for example, obsessing about things. Once the energy is prevented from flowing freely, it can cause a blockage, and this means the energy no longer flows freely. If this happens and is not addressed, then ultimately it may lead to a physical manifestation of illness in the body. When your energy flow is good then your chakras will all receive.

The energy that flows through the body has an effect on your physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. 


Quick Description of chakras and their roles

Here is a quick overview of each of their chakras and what their roles in our live are. We will start at the base of the spine.


Chakra Location

Chakra Name


Aspect Of Self


Root Chakra



Basic survival, security

Black Obsidian

Sacral Chakra



Pleasure, creativity, passion



Solar Plexus Chakra



Personal power, self-esteem


Heart Chakra



Love, compassion

Rose Quartz

Throat Chakra



Communication, self-expression

Blue Lace Agate

"Third Eye" Brow Chakra



Concentration, psychic intuition


Crown Chakra



Connection with the Divine



This is just a really quick look at chakras, but even from this you can see that each chakra is responsible for different aspects of you. Each chakra has a different vibration and along with that it has its own color, symbol, and sound.


Crystals and chakras

Crystals each have their own vibration and when that vibration is connected with its corresponding chakra, it can be used to help remove any blockages in that chakra, thus healing it. Crystals do not need to be placed directly on a chakra to work. They can be worn on the body as a piece of jewelry or placed in a room where you spend time.

By wearing a full chakra bracelet or necklace, you can ensure your chakras all remain balanced. However, if you have issues with just one or two areas, then a piece of jewelry with the relevant crystal or gemstone will help heal it. Check out our full range now.
