After our cold winter I was worried about my callistemon, but it pulled through. I had to cut back so many dead tips I thought I would get no flowers at all this year, but to my joy I discovered this one valiant bloom! 😊
New friends, old friends, a moss buffet, air plants, and lots of planty "painting." Wednesday night was such a fun plant party 🎉 and a just right last night in one of my favorite cities. 🙌Thank you everyone who came and @sedgwick_stop and @dabble.co for helping make it happen! The paintings were gorgeous!!

• The Breathe Mélange • A new knit design released today • Pattern includes sizing from child 3/5 through adult x-large •
Like a walk on the beach at desk...or a stroll through the woods at dawn. My two new designs were inspired by the small moments we exhale and just breathe taking everything in...the moments that bring us back and create balance in our every day.
I designed both balance and breathe with comfort, movement and wearability in mind. Both designs can be worn by just pulling overhead, allowing the natural drape to move with you. They can also be worn as a traditional blanket scarf by folding in half diagonally, then place on with the point in front and both ends wrapped around to secure. For the love of classic wardrobe pieces you can keep it folded in half diagonally and simply place over your shoulders for an easy timeless shawl option as well.
Both are designed to be just as comforting and relaxing to work up as they are to wear. A piece you will go to over and over again. Keep an eye out as I will be posting more photos to show the versatility of both designs.
•Warmest wishes to Everyone always 🌿
There's a life/moving/baby update on YesPleaseDaily.com today & I have officially become the queen of saying "Next week should be a lot less busy" every single week. Yet I somehow get busier, crazier & happier every. single. week. Anyone else?! 🏡❤️
...hot diggity dog i'm playing 'ketchup' in the #LoveLettersJuly with @kellycreates...was away at the cabin and didn't even eat one of these...maybe next time...supplies used were Prismacolor coloured pencil for the art work and Artistsloft for the lettering...

Hold up. How in the world are we already more than halfway through July guys?
I had to do a double take while looking at the calendar this morning because it was July 1st like, yesterday.
But with July flying by, that also means we're closer to family coming into town for a visit - tell me, what's on your calendar for the rest of the summer!?

When you got started in the design industry you probably thought all you’d have to worry about was designing websites that looked nice and made your clients happy. I don’t blame you. With the quick run I had doing design, that’s exactly what I thought.⠀
If that is the idea you started out with, I’m sure you quickly found that your responsibilities run deeper so today we’ll talk about 4 ways you can help your design clients be successful after working with you, including getting strategic, knowing their competition, removing distractions, and empowering them to keep moving forward. Head over to the post to read more through the link in my profile!
We have three beautiful rose bushes in our front yard that bloom in shades of red, pink, and peach all summer long. These watercolor florals from @mydearestco in #dailydoseofpaper remind me of those blooms! So pretty. 🌹💖🌸💖🌹
Art Card/Collage/Mixed Media ***Credits for the artwork used in this collage goes out to all of the talented artists who contribute their beautiful, original work to numerous coloring books, art magazines, and on social media. This collage was created using the Gorjuss Girls (Santoro) collectible card. ***I would have mentioned each and every artist's name, however, the nature of collage is to choose bits and pieces from here and there, so the names have been cut off in the process.*** I colored some pieces, chose the various paper patterns, cut and adhered each piece to heavy cardstock or a canvas panel (some with an additional foam tape backing, to create dimension), added a variety of embellishments, and assembled all of these "puzzle pieces" to create my own interpretation for this 4 x 6, one-of-a-kind Art Card/Collage.
I apologize for putting so much information into this description, but I am very sensitive and protective of the original work of other artists and wanted to thank them for their inspiration that encourages me to express my own creativity. I would be truly honored if my work does the same for you.
Thanks for browsing! 👀 #stoppingbuy @etsy
