We’re all on our own path. And this week as I sign off from my first week being fully employed as myself I’m thinking of this amazing journey ahead of me!
Sometimes we push so hard to be everything to everyone but in the end what matters is who we are to ourselves. Deep down you know that the decisions you make are the ones that will impact your journey and life forever. And sometimes those decisions don’t come easily and they don’t come without many nights of tears and heartache. This is what true passion feels like, and it’s what I’ve always felt in my heart was the right thing for me to do. It was right for me to jump and take a huge risk! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So cheers to an amazing week, an amazing weekend ahead and amazing journey in a business that I truly love and care so deeply about! ❤️🎉

Thanks for all the love on yesterday’s post. ❤️ I guess I’m on a business advice kick, which is weird because I never thought I’d be someone who would be giving business advice. But I guess that’s what happens when you’ve been selling handcrafted bags for 12 years. // Did you know that this popular design with the stripes on top of the design was dreamt up because I had a surplus of thin strips of striped scraps? I hate to waste material so I save all my scraps, and some days when I’m in a funk I dig in the scrap bin for inspiration. Using what someone would deem throw away material became the key ingredient for one of my most popular designs. (Which I have more currently in the works, because i know someone will ask) if you’re looking for inspiration or trying to come up with some original ideas, you need to think out of the box. Use up those scraps you have laying around, find a use for supplies someone said were trash but you felt there was something more there, or find a way to fill a need you see in your day to day. // Tell me about your creative process, or did you ever turn trash into treasure?! I’d love to hear some inspiring stories or even your best dumpster dive, because I love a good dumpster dive story. 😊
Part of me doesn’t understand how this round woven wall hanging hasn’t been scooped up, the other part is okay getting to have more time with it! But really, it’s one of my favorites, it’s super fluffy, it has hand picked driftwood, leather, @lovefestfibers
indigo fiber and @niromastudio
cookies and cream cotton. What are you even waiting for?! It’s in the shop now, link in profile.

Semi-dead. I won't say TGIF (because that always feels like something you say if you don't like your job), but definitely thank God for weekends and a chance to rest. This has been a great week and I've loved being back at the ballet, making music and dance with my beautiful friends, but...today my cat has been vomiting and obviously feeling fragile and I have to say I'm right there with her, literally and figuratively. 😵 😾
Back in March, Etsy featured one of my Bunny Necklaces, and it’s now become one of my best sellers. With the edition of a hand stamped initial or heart, they seem to sell even better. Stop on by if you can’t wait until Easter to get your bunny rabbit on. Hoppy weekend everyone!✨🐇✨
I took a bit of a break from everything for a few weeks and just now discovered a huge pile of unwashed brushes to deal with tonight... They are going to need lots of love to get them back to this state. Good thing I just bought a huge tub of "The Masters" brush cleaner! Pretty exciting night ahead!
Time for #fridayintroductions
Hi 👋🏼 I’m Meg, an SEO Specialist & digital strategist here at @megaboltdigital.
What’s that mean?⠀
I optimize your website content show up in Google (and Bing and YouTube and Pinterest ...) search results, and when people land on your website, I find ways to turn them from readers into subscribers, followers, and customers.⠀
When I’m not elbow-deep in spreadsheets, you can find me ...
🌲 at the playground with my two boys (the baby turns one next week 🎉 and the big guy starts pre-K next month 😲)⠀
🐶 walking our pit bull Charlie (named after characters from The West Wing and Brooklyn #NINENINE
🍳 playing Alexa Jeopardy while cooking, or⠀
🧘♀️ squeezing in a yoga class⠀
And now that I’ve shared my love for Charles Boyle, share with me: Who’s your favorite sitcom character?
I’ll just be here cuddling with Diana.
I haven’t done a #fridayintroductions
in a while with a lot of new faces around!
🙋🏻♀️I’m Tina! I’m a designer by trade but a knitter at my core. I hand knit and machine knit in my personal time and program knitting machines for my profession. I have 3 cats that keep me sane 😹 I have to travel at least once a year to a new city or country or else I feel stuck. My goal is to visit all 50 states. My favorite colors are blues, greys, and purples (can you tell?😉) And another random fact about me is I don’t like cheese unless it’s on pizza. 🍕
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
P.S. can you tell I love wearing #thevbacktee
! The pattern is coming out tomorrow! Keep your eyes peeled for it!
A gentle Friday reminder: We can be a successful artists and creative entrepreneurs regardless of our academic qualifications. Regardless of how late in life we start. Regardless of whether or not we have a perpetual (creative or not) day job. Regardless of how many kids we have or don't have. Regardless of how talented we are. Regardless of how we look. Regardless of how small or big is our house. Regardless of how scattered we are today. Regardless of how shameful we feel about our peculiar situation. Regardless of how much money we have and regardless of how much our family supports/understands us. .
As long as we are alive, creativity 🗝will find the way to whisper 🗣 to our soul it’s magical ideas. We are chosen by magical ideas every day! .
What ideas are currently knocking at your soul bell? - One of mine is to create a class about "Planning for creatives" 💻
If you need others to gather the courage to say "yes" to your ideas! I hope you know that you are welcome to join the creative wings mastermind ANYTIME of the month! the doors are open always no need to wait for the beginning of the month to get started!! ✨link in profile✨

El concepto utilizado para los diseños, toma elementos surrealistas que hacen de esta propuesta una invitación a escapar rápido de un ambiente rutinario y estresante, a un destino placentero. ✈ ¿Qué les parece el resultado? 😉
