Need some words of wis­dom? Maybe you want some moti­va­tion to keep going or could use a reminder that it’s not all about you. (Some­times we need to hear that.) In that case, check out the work of Cia­ra LeRoy, aka Pret­ty Strange Stu­dio. The mul­ti-dis­ci­pli­nary hand­i­craft artist and design­er cre­ates embroi­dery art that is cen­tered around short phras­es. One of my favorites is “You have sur­vived 100% of your worst days.” It’s some­thing I think about often, and I wish I had been able to snag it in her Etsy shop when the hoop was for sale.

Scroll down for more of Cia­ra’s work. To see what she’s work­ing on next, fol­low her on Insta­gram. And at the time of writ­ing, she has sev­er­al things for sale on Etsy—so make sure you check that out, too.

Ciara LeRoy, aka Pretty Strange Studio, creates embroidered word hoop art centered around short phrases—many of them validating or gentle reminders.
