Thinking about the wildfires that are raging so near to us, we applaud the work the responders are doing all across California. And to those affected by these disasters, we wish you safety and hopes for a smooth recovery.

A little studio snap. My husband built me an organizational shelf and it's making my life up here 👌
🍁Sometimes it’s hard for me to slow down. Guilt wants to creep in because I should be doing something other than sitting still. I tried that route for years. Going, going, going, and then crash. I would end up exhausted, burned out, or even sick. Clearly that way wasn’t working for me.
I have to remind myself every now and then that I need to put myself first. To stop and just be present. That list of things that need to be done will still be there. The best thing I can do for my family, for my work, for me, is to take a breath, stop, and appreciate the moments that truly matter in my life. In the end, these random pauses help me to be stronger, to be healthier. It’s not selfish like we tend to think. It’s necessary.
Have you pushed pause today? Done something incredibly magical for yourself and your wellness?
I HOPE YOU’VE ALL HAD AN AMAZINGGGGGGGG WEEKEND!! My weekend’s been absolutely manic but a good type of manic if that makes sense. I’m Beyond excited to release all of my new art this week! Bare with me as I’m genuinely doing about 836374 different projects at once but A few more coffees and late nights and they’ll be finished !!🧚🏽♀️💖🙌🏽xx

Muzyczno-estetyczne zachwyty ✨ „Gdy wtajemniczasz się w detale, dostrzegasz bezgraniczne spektrum - to uwolnienie ruchu migawki” ✨ #melakoteluk#migawka
Back in the day when I shot film in high school, I used to ~think~ in black and white. Like, how colors translated, the richness of shadows, etc etc.
but for some reason these days, I struggle to shoot with it as the intention vs an after thought. Any photographers out there have any tips on getting re-inspired by all things b+w??
And in honor of this sentiment, here’s a few colorless snaps from these Canadian cuties’ session, where we got to freely roam about and hit up all the best market spots.

Too many people are starting with ‘just tell me what to do!’ without realising that they’ll never be able to do ‘it’ without knowing why they’re meant to in the first place. Connect with purpose, connect with why. And then watch everything else unfold! 💜
To celebrate 1,000 followers and 200 sales, I am so excited to announce my first ever brand rep search! Here’s what you need to know:
Search will run from 11/18 through 11/24 and the chosen accounts (up to 3) will be announced 11/25.
The term will be from 11/26/18 through 2/28/19 (with the possibility of extension), with the first photo posted no later than 12/8.
What’s required: - having a public and very active IG account (number of followers is irrelevant) - promoting the products and brand on your own social media account through photography of products twice a month or every 2 weeks (although more is greatly appreciated!)
- photos that are crisp, clear, and clearly feature the product- these should also feature natural light and have a similar aesthetic to the brand
- emailing me your product photography, non watermarked
- I reserve the right to share any and all photographs on my business social media, promotional items, and advertisements
What you get:
- two free digital downloads a month (one seasonal/chosen by me, one that you can choose yourself) for the duration of your term
- 50% off all additional digital download items for your own personal use ONLY for the duration of your term- using your discount to make purchases for others will end your contract and your ability to purchase with the discount - a 20% off digital items coupon to share with family and friends through the duration of your term
- exposure of your account on the brand’s social media
If you’d like to be considered, all you have to do is repost this image on your own feed (tag me and use #cckbrandrep18) and leave a comment below, telling me a little about yourself and why you’d be a great brand rep. That’s all! (Feel free to also tag anyone below who you think might be interested.) 😊 #brandrepsearch#brandrep

All my excess art gets turned into bookmarks - my favorite is having kids run up and get so excited about reading and having an original work of art by their side.
Come on by today to the IA State Fairgrounds. I’m here till 4p
another mini hike in the books🚸💕 we only made it to the lookout at the #KaaterskillFalls and it was a pretty epic view😍 we can’t wait to go back for the full hike when it’s a little warmer in the spring! Swipe left for a closer look💕
They asked me what my guilty pleasures are. So I had a think and there it was: time spent on the sofa and biscuits. So what did I do? Made a biscuit sofa of course 😂It was great fun and except a bit of a blister from a sugar glue (that thing is hot!). What are your guilty pleasures? Some BTS on my stories! #cs_guiltypleasures@creativelysquared@gingerfinchhome

A little bit of hook knife therapy.
This is quite tough plum wood, so small shavings are the way to go. You'll notice when the angle of attack is slightly off things get really tough. Sharp tools are key.
Enjoy your weekend all.
We'll be at the Cygnet market carving on Sunday, so come say hi and grab yourself a spoon.
