I'm so excited to announce that Wild Oak is now live on Etsy! From start to finish, each piece is hand crafted with great care. I've poured my heart and mind into learning how to screen print, brushing up on my sewing skills, and researching fabrics and materials over the past two months. It's been a blast learning new skills, and I'm pretty excited about where all of this is headed. Take a look! https://www.etsy.com/shop/WildOakShop . . . #screenprinting #design #makeithappen #creativehappylife #handsandhustle #dreamersanddoers #handcrafted #creativityfound #designlovefest #makersmovement #makersgonnamake #textiles #textiledesign #patterndesign #creativecommunity #thehappynow #etsy #apartmenttherapy #flashesofdelight #personaldevelopment #liveauthentic #createcultivate #minimalistmovement #throwpillows #mycreativelife

Gosh I love this little Instagram quilting community. I received the loveliest note and gift in the mail today from @karynsews. Karyn won a giveaway of a mug rug I made and some fabric last month as part of the #libertysocietykanthastitchalong. As a thank you she made me two scrappy mugrugs and sent me a piece of fabric I commented on in one of her recent posts! Such a lovely surprise Karyn, thank you so much 💝. I love the coasters and you have inspired me to make my own, such a great quick make to preserve those baby scraps and I will be putting that animal fabric to good use 😁. I’ve decided the Zebras are my favourite 🦓. How lucky we are to have this platform to connect with people who love the same things we do and make new friends!

"For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them." Aristotle This thought took me a few times through to get (Greek philosopher, imagine that) and now it's like a spotlight: the way to get better at something? Do that something! You will surely do it wrong or badly, and Aristotle made no mention of any of that. Why? It's the doing it that matters! Want to be an artist?

This started as a play sesh, simply messing around with color combos for an upcoming rebrand. And as sometimes happens when in play mode, unexpected things come up. I started thinking about brand icons and drew this cute little pencil. And then I drew four pencil icons. (I’m totally enjoying myself over here!) - Icons are just one way to expand your brand into a holistic experience for your clients. Not sure if these will lead anywhere, but experimenting is what makes the process so fun. • #creativepreneur #creativebusiness #creativehappylife #studiolife #creativeprocess #makersgonnamake #beingboss #communityovercompensation #fwportfolio #risingtidesociety #peoplescreatives #makersmovement #creativityfound #thingsilove #handsthatmake #progressoverperfection #workanywhere #gritandvirtue #brandstylist #brandicons #illustration #whitespacewinter

WHO OWNS A STORY? // So one thing that we talked a lot about during my MFA was "who owns this story?" If you're a writer who writes non-fiction stories about, say, your family...this is a question you think about a lot. . "Do I have the right to write about this?" <---this is very real question that any writer has thought to themselves at one point or another. . New York Times Best Selling Author, @jdarznik is on the podcast this week, talking exactly about this topic. She's written a fiction based on the very real Persian feminist poet and filmmaker Forugh Farrokhzad. . As a beloved person of Iran's history, LOTS of people would have asked, "Do I have the right to imagine what her life was like? Is it ok that I'm writing an imagined novel about her very real life?" . But Jasmin inhabits this fiction anyway, and she's gifted us with her beautiful book, "Song of a Captive Bird." . If you're a writer who deals with memory, fact, and the imagination, this is an episode that you will NOT want to miss. . . .

Just a few moments to play around with this new series.... thInking about the way our attitude unfolds in our day. I love what John Maxwell said, ‘People may hear your words, but they feel your attitude even more.’

Today while I was working outside this song by Hillsong United started playing on Spotify... “And as You speak A hundred billion galaxies are born In the vapor of Your breath the planets form If the stars were made to worship so will I I can see Your heart in everything You’ve made Every burning star A signal fire of grace If creation sings Your praises so will I” As I was listening to the words I was just in awe. God spoke and billions of galaxies were formed. It’s impossible for me to speak anything into place, only God’s great power can do that. After He created our breathtaking universe, He kept going and made this world a beautiful place and topped it off with man. Have you ever gazed up at a starry night or witnessed the pounding waves of the ocean crash against a cliff and just stand in wonder? That’s because you’re seeing God’s handiwork do what it was made to do. Worship it’s Creator. We were made to live for God and have a relationship with Him. We were made to worship Him.✨ . . . .

We had the most beautiful day here in southeastern Pennsylvania! We got to play outside in the morning and my sweet children blessed me with napping at the same time in the afternoon 🙌🏼. I took full advantage of it and worked on filling some orders while out on my porch. I am feeling rejuvenated and ready to tackle the rest of this week! How did you enjoy the weather today?

It's not even Friday and I'm giving you a random fact about me! I LOVE to throw things away (this drives my husband crazy) because I really hate clutter. I strive for my designs to be clear and focused, and I absolutely cannot focus in a cluttered and messy space!

What's your favourite type of frame? I know, I know...you're probably going to say it depends in the painting! But overall, my fave is the shadow floating frame made from natural wood. I purchase wood trim at Home Depot, cut it to size and mount it with finishing nails. While I haven't mastered how to make it floating, I do hand make them to really stand out from the wall. The easiest way to describe it is rustic and unrefined. If any of you make your own frames, what's your favourite material? . . . . . . #thejealouscurator #passioncolorjoy #womenartists #creativeminds #creativehappylife #dowhatyoulove #createyourhappy #instagrammarketing #calledtobecreative #makersmovement #eileennoyerart #flashesofdelight #carveouttimeforart #artflowsessions #artforthehome #iliketoartyhard #impressionism #instaart #makersgonnamake #colorcrushcreative #artweinspire #handsandhustle #communityovercompetition #creativityfound #craftsposure #colorpop #verilymoment #landscapepainting #handmadeframes #australianlandscape

Today, the #CellLoveChallenge explores the fundamental role of creativity in our lives. • @lizsloan.healthcoach has some incredible things to say about creativity. If we weren’t eating right we’d be aware of a deficiency, but if we aren’t being sufficiently creative Liz argues that we are not exercising our #authenticity and #selfexpression which plays a huge role in our wellbeing! • As we aim for balance and build our self-love practice she challenges us to get creative, be authentic, than share it with our world!

To increase your chances of having a good idea, you need to have more of them to cut from. ✂️✂️✂️ If you produce 50, one of them is likely to be great. If you only have five, well then your chances will be pretty small. 💁🏼‍♀️Challenging yourself to have more ideas will help grow your creative muscle by leaps and bounds. 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻#creativemuscle
