I love these dresses and it makes me smile every time someone orders one ☺️ - it ALSO makes me smile when they then write a review like this 🥰We’re down to the last few of these cuties but if they aren’t all gone, I’ll have them @urbnmarket@mosaicdistrict Cherry Blossom Festival and @handmadearlington - see our profile stories and/or event page on our website for details! 😎🖤
Don't use birch branches even if that white papery bark looks cool. Because I did and then when I was reading up about trees, I found out that the birch grows so spectacularly quickly (this fact is also the reason why there are those darker marks where the bark splits) because it basically prioritises growth over stability, and well, it's a poor quality wood for that reason.
Second hidden tip in there: if you don't feel like working then don't and go read a book. I am so "under-motivated" this winter I have already hit 25 books 🙄
The finished bench! I have no upholstery experience so this was a good little project to get me started. I ended up removing the old cracked fake leather from the top by taking out all the staples (mostly with a screw driver - which was painful 😖) and reusing the foam and nail tack strips. The leather on the bottom half looked fine so I kept it - I can always order my material and tackle that another day 😂
Anyway I am happy with the results! I actually really like the two tone look. 😊 Thank you @spoonflower for creating such an awesome website, I am thrilled to have designed my own fabric to create a one of a kind bench! ❤️
Thank you also to whoever bought 15 yards of this exact design as soon as it was up in my shop, if your reading I would love to see what you create! 😊
It's been awhile since I posted a painting so I wanted to show what I have been working on in the past few days. There are a few layers on this painting called "Wave of Light". My very first up close wave painting that I had sitting in the basement unfinished for months with just a layer of acrylic paint for the outline. Finally I finished it after two more layers of oil paint, and I am so excited to hang it above the couch for show, after it is completely dry😊
The 4ft by 2ft painting is one of my paintings that took more time and money off my hands but was worthwhile. DM or comment below your opinions or thoughts.
I have been playing - there are more of these peckers coming soon!
Used only the ellipse tool to draw all initial shapes. Then warp, shape builder etc.

Marchmeetthemaker Day 23 : Top tips or advice. Analysis Paralysis is where you think an idea to death. (I was reminded about this in a social media documentary on Netflix just now) and that’s what I did for years. Don’t let this invade your ideas and dreams. Don’t invent problems before you’ve even started. If it doesn’t work - you learnt from that and that’s worth it alone. Um other than that I need all the tips and advice I can get. Seriously.

You see this Entrepreneur life? It's not for everyone! The emotional journey of a startup can and have broken many a person. The fear of transitioning from stability to insecurity, the lack of real support from those closest to you and the unintentional isolation of yourself to focus on your goals is often too much for people to handle. And also, what the heck are you supposed to do when payday doesn't fall on a Friday or the end of the month??? .
This life requires a different type of person. Someone with grit, perseverance, blinders, bravery, hustle, honesty and risk management all while still being a 'people person'. Because there's gonna come a day when everything sacrificed is rewarded with everything earned. Payday will no longer be only on a Friday, but everyday. And the reason behind your 'why' says "Thank you for staying committed to me". Now, you have the life you designed, on your own terms.
Happy Friday! For those of you who are new to my feed here is my Friday introduction, with a few random facts about me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I started my painting career several years ago by painting before work each day. Now it’s an obsession I can’t imagine living without; I almost always paint in my bare feet; I’ve never been on a job interview, ever (thank goodness because I think I would be terrible at it!); and my favorite color is pink, at least for today...always subject to change because I’m madly in love with ALL colors. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now what’s a fun fact about you?
This photo is from my recent photoshoot with the talented @oliviarehmanphotography . She did a great job creating some beautiful photos for my new website, which I haven’t even started yet, but new photos will inspire me to get moving on it soon! #carveouttimeforart#createwithallofyourheart#dowhatmakesyouhappy
I love that @anthropologie has a new photo of the mugs I designed! I can’t even imagine how many thousands and thousands of these mugs are living happily out there in the world! Thank you all so much for loving my commercial designs for Anthropologie! *If you own one I’d love to know where in the world these mugs are calling home! 💕☕️🌎
Can’t tell if this is a good pose or I just look like I’m playing an imaginary drumset? 🥁😂 Spending today getting my hair done and can’t wait to get these locks a little brighter for Spring!! Also still living in my @mottandbow denim 🤩

Playing with some @artisaire vellum wax! Thought it would be neat to let some handmade paper fibres peek through these vellum place cards.
