"You will always be the miracle that makes my life complete." George Strait
The Story Behind This Tile
One of two very special Spiritiles released in honor of Houston's second-born son. 'Fulfillment' is dedicated from Houston to his child, and is a representation of the wholeness one feels when they have created a family. To view the Spiritiles made in honor of his first-born son, see 184 'Lil Llew under the Retired collection of Spiritiles. Read below for Houston's release announcement of 238 'Fulfillment' and 239 'Sterling.' - "Three years ago, I was scared and overjoyed to welcome my first child into the world. He took life by the wing and pulled my wife and me into a new world, making the face of our days completely new. When we learned we would welcome another child this year, my oldest became so excited to have a friend like him join our family. Along the way, one day I was designing new Spiritiles in my workshop when my son wandered in to see what I was doing. He saw the elephants Spiritile design, loved it (he loves animals!), and asked if he could give it to his soon-to-be-born baby brother. “Of course,” I said. “In fact, you can give him this very first one.” It was his turn to be overjoyed. When the time came for my second son to be born, I wasn’t nearly as scared. My oldest was testament that I could keep a child alive, love them, and teach them to love in return. It is with this feeling of fulfillment and unwavering joy that I release these two Spiritiles as a humble gift - the first from me, the second from my oldest - to the newest love of my life. My son, thanks to you, your mother, and your new best friend of a brother, my life is made complete." - Houston

Care & Use
CARE: Enamel artwork is best polished with household glass cleaner and a soft cloth.
DISPLAYING: These delicate yet durable artworks are made to last, resist fading, shine under light, and fire up a meaningful conversation. Spiritiles can stand up on a flat surface or hang on a prized wall. They can stand alone, but love company. Each piece is sized the same to mix and match for a collection that tells your story.
HOW TO HANG: Drywall screws work great! When affixing the screw, leave a ¼" lip to rest the frame's hollow on the screw head. The art will sit securely and flush with the wall. When hanging multiple pieces, the ideal spacing between screws is 7¼" horizontal and 10½" vertical.
