I know, I know... never post on a Saturday night and especially never post on a holiday weekend Saturday night because those are the Instagram rules. Noted. But. I just wanted to write this thought down before I lost it... Don’t we all have those songs and bands that bring us back to some deep rooted memories? ✨ Today my beautiful little family and I played in our yard, grilled some amazing food, and sat around our outdoor table listening to old music that I love, and then it hit me. This music that I grew up listening to, that I still listen to today, has helped shape me. I’m talking about Van Morrison, James Taylor, Phil Collins, Fleetwood Mac, Counting Crows ... soulful lyrics—music that moves. And, growing up, my family wasn’t perfect but god, we had soul in our house. Always music. I like to think that the music my mom and dad played while I was young has an influence on my writing because it’s part of me, still. Still the words and notes that lead me back to truth and love and home. ♥️ 🎵 #wordsthatmove  #shewrites 

The good thing about yesterday’s really bad day? The realization that it had been a long time since I had a day like that. So even though I felt like a heap of tears and failure, I was also thankful and humbled. #getmessyartjournal

A little slow stitching on a lazy Saturday morning. For a girl who talks so much about loving hand stitching, I sure let my handwork projects pile up. 🙄🤷🏼‍♀️ I still have a quilt to finish binding and all these darling little pouches to finish up! I’d better get to it. 😂 Hope you’re having a great morning wherever you are! ❤️ #mywanderingpath  #quiltednotionspouch  #boundallaroundpouch  #retromamapattern  #brendariddle  #modafabrics  #showmethemoda  #loyalheightsbyjerabrandvig  #lecien  #lecien_fabrics  #handmadepouch  #notionspouch  #scrappysewing  #sewingwithscraps  #scrappymakesmehappy  #quiltersofinstagram  #quiltingmakesmehappy  #makersgonnamake  #quiltersgonnaquilt  #creativelifehappylife  #saturdaysewing  #handmade  #handstitching  #slowstitching

I may not be going anywhere fun this weekend, but nothing beats a inland northwest sunset. I love where I live. #spokanedoesntsuck 

✨The Magpie collection is live! Inspired by a sweet little Magpie that perched outside my window while living abroad in Brisbane, this collection is fun, graphic, and bold! Featuring a high contrast palette with black, grey, natural and pops of bright green. Looking for fresh and modern? I got you! Available on our Etsy shop now.

I recently received these Art Oracles cards (via Amazon) as a treat to myself and a way to jumpstart my creativity. The first card I drew after shuffling the deck was Edvard Munch. I took the phrases provided and interpreted it to mean that I get my anxiety and anger and stress onto the page. That's how I read the part about screaming into the canvas. This is my scream. I wrote quickly and haphazardly about some things that are currently on my mind and causing me stress. I intentionally made it difficult to read. I then covered it with tissue paper to symbolize that now that I've gotten the thoughts out on to the paper, I can move forward. Stay tuned for the finished product. . . . . . . . . . . #art  #artjournal  #artjournaling  #artjournalpage  #craft  #creative  #creativebug  #getmessyartjournal  #artjournalpages  #creativepage  #mixedmediajournal  #creativelife  #creativelifehappylife  #makersmovement  #doitfortheprocess  #creativejournaling  #creativejournal  #visualjournaling  #journalart  #artjournaleveryday  #artjournaljunkie  #beboldbecreativebeyou  #yearofcreativehabits  #carveouttimeforart  #womenartists  #journalcommunity  #journalingcommunity  #getmessian  #create  #createcultivate

A couple of months ago, I had made an exquisite gelli print that I haven’t been able to replicate since. I decided to scan it and get it printed as an acrylic block. This is a 4x4 block and I love how beautifully the image transferred on it. Perfect for home or office decor, don’t you think?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Link to all my Redbubble products is in my bio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #handsandhustle  #makersmovement  #makersgonnamake  #mycreativebiz  #creativelifehappylife  #craftsposure  #sanfrancisco  #creativeentrepeneur  #sfartist  #intuitiveart  #sfsouvenir  #madeincalifornia  #creativehappylife  #calledtobecreative  #wearethemakers  #smallbiz  #makersvillage  #handmadeisbetter  #fromsanfranciscowithlove  #creativityfound  #creativepreneur  #creatorslane  #psimadethis  #momprenuer  #calledtocreate  #colorinspiration  #womenartists  #createeveryday  #mansimakes  #creativehappenings 

✨Painting in oil is interesting if only for the process itself. There are so many layers/stages that you go through, from rough, to dead-face, to beautiful... it’s just like life, really. This one is still in process. ✨🌸

Just love this saying!! I think most of us are like this right? #bohostyle  #bohovibes  #bohoinspired 

You’re worth much more than you give yourself credit for. It’s okay to respect your space, time and energy enough to make sure that when given to others, it’s a positive exchange experience 💙 Know your worth, then add tax ✌🏻

I had big plans for today but nothing good ever goes to plan, right? So instead we are home for the day & I have a sick little girl. Some weekend's just weren't ment to be weekends 😴

Popped in for the ultimate in comfort food...donuts! They hand cut every donut and they’re made with fresh Maine potatoes. Adding mashed potatoes gives the donuts a delicious moist texture that’s “holy” addictive!

Weekend of crafting, starting with playing with some old records and trying some paint on them. Decided to have a quick play of some of these gems before dousing them in paint, some good.....some not so good. And in the meantime I randomly found a 8x10 glossy of @lionelrichie  inside the sleeve of another record 🤣 The Studio now has a new mascot!!! Can’t go wrong with Lionel watching over you!!! Stayed tuned to see how the record pours turned out 😎 #lionelrichie  #mascot  #acrylicpour  #paintpour  #fluidart  #fluidpainting  #colours  #acrylic  #paints  #art  #artistsoninstagram  #abstract  #insanelyinspiriedinstagram  #artporn  #artforsale  #creativetribe  #supportartists  #paintingoftheday  #thingsilove  #creative  #canadianartist  #etsyshop  #houseonthecornerarts  #creativelifehappylife  #etsyfinds  #etsysellersofinstagram

We are not designers, but we sure do appreciate good design. We are in awe of artists and musicians who are able to to create from a blank template, but that's not one of our many talents 😏. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We just adore our Agave Clutch! And we got to thinking how cool that pattern would be on a small space rug. But we also wanted to bring in our current pom pom obsession to add something that's us. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A couple of months ago we started to draw out measurements, colors and size. But the color we really wanted would have driven up the cost quite a bit because it needed to be created from scratch. So our artisan sent us a bit of the rug with two of the closest colors she had in her studio and we decided on a blue yarn. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We hope you enjoy our process picture slideshow and may it serve up some Monday motivation to expand your perceived notions of what you are capable of creatively 🌟. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵 #purchasewithpurpose  #responsibleconsumerism  #bloomyellow  #ontheblog  #bossbabes  #motivator  #womenwhodo  #weavingloom  #pompomrugs  #everysquareastory  #smallbizsquad  #floored  #keepmovingforward  #liveunscripted  #bloglife  #blogbossbabe  #communityovercompetition  #mycreativebiz  #calledtobecreative  #creativeideas  #creativepreneur  #creativelifehappylife  #rugs  #onlygoodvibes  #beyourownboss  #bloggervibes  #makersgonnamake  #bloggersofinstagram  #motivationmonday  #ihavethisthingwithfloors  𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵𖡵
