Wow, Vancouver is a glorious piece of heaven.
Being back with the team in our Toronto studio

A mindful minute of course.

Our Studio Gallery at 688 Richmond St. West

Just finishing the Prayer Rings.. Imagine spinning the messages:
'peace begins with me..' and/or 'one moment at a time..' on your finger.
What do you think will happen?
