(n.) the soul, creativity or love put into something; the essence of yourself that is put into your work.

This wonderful, underused, word describes something that can be seen in many places.

I’m happy to say I see it in my own work.

I hope others do too.

That aside, wherever you look you can spy something lovingly handcrafted, beautifully written or passionately taught.

I see meraki whenever I look at the following….

The recycled, upcycled, handmade creativity of Meebee designs.

The weird essence of self that appears in the writing and art of A Dark Whimsy. (she really is a fruit cake).

The seemingly random mix of craft and teachings of Winniemay’s Hankerings.

The shaping, moulding, creative hands of Kelly Loves.


The shapes, forms and unconditional love that emanate from the beautiful soul that is Portsmouth Yoga. 

All these people fill their crafts with energy, fun, dedication and commitment. They pour their heart and soul into what they do.

And I am privileged to be able to say, to one degree or another, I know them all and my life is richer for that.
