Goodbye, Spokane! I am headed to New York to eat delicious food and look at some FINE art. These are my travel MUSTS. What do you like to bring? (Vendors + creatives are tagged.) Any suggestions or recommendations for tasty food? 🌲✈️🍎
Take me out to the ball game, take me out to the crowd. .... I love to see how proud a mom is of her sons endeavors. This mama will be supporting her son by wearing this custom made charm necklace. GO Expos.
Ok - so I missed #faderfriday . What can I say but this #recordingconsole looks like it belongs on the #spaceshuttle 🚅. And if you've seen our space shuttle cockpit post here on IG, you'll probably agree. Check it out and let me know your comments. Repost thanks to @rupert_neve designs. Great consoles built by a great team.
This fun custom print for @nicolehulingdixson makes the perfect party decor. I'm a huge lover of parties, especially if there are donuts + cake. ••••••••••••••••••••
If you have an event coming up, let's chat & create something fun!
This sign is for sale! I am selling it for $35 right now, but when I list it on Etsy it will cost more. Let me know if you'd like it! It would be perfect for a kitchen or dining room area. Dimensions: 14"x 18".
A lot of what I have overheard at Strada about my prints while I've been working is: "at first I didn't know what I was looking at, but then I slowly realized it said 'Strive' 'Forward'". I guess some artists might be sad about that but I absolutely love it. These puppies are still waiting for their forever home in Strada (illustration intended🤗) at $45/each! If you're not living in the area and wish to purchase them we can totally work something out 💃🏻. Message me if interested!
Special thanks to @hannahmilessmith for the photo 🤗.
Wedding daydreaming has become the inspiration for my calligraphy this morning. Our wedding date feels like forever away but I'm sure it will be here in the blink of an eye. 🌿 #staloysiuschurch#bozarthmansion
This is for any of my peeps...friends, colleagues, family! It'll be a casual summer evening cruising Hayden Lake together on August 8th. Tickets have been steadily selling so make sure you buy a group for you and your pals soon!
I got a great opportunity to not only design a logo for but photograph the work of @m_embroidery.
There are not a lot of artists who embroider anymore and even fewer still who have the distinct style Mikaela offers. From succulents and desert scenes to mid-century style living rooms this girl is quite a talent.
She also embroiders jackets and other items upon request. So go on over to @m_embroidery and check out some of the other projects she's been working on!
We're welcoming a new sister-in-law into the Lewis family this summer! We hosted a summery gathering of ladies to shower her in love and share memories this weekend at our home. Grateful for all of the help from family and for Kyle's endless hours of work on our yard...Phew 😅 am I glad we don't do events like this every weekend like we used to. Although, it was fun to set it up and enjoy a beautiful party with these special ladies ..a few days of routine then we are off on another camping adventure at the ocean 🌲
Happy rainy Friday friends!! Well at least it's rainy here in Denver, and I will say--- I'm secretly loving it! I needed a little rain and coziness this Friday 🌧 .
Today's #followfriday is two fold!! I want to invite you to a Paper Flower Workshop by @linenandcake this August in Denver that I am hosting! I really can't wait to meet so many of you in person for the first time, create some beautiful flowers, and have some yummy treats! There is a link in my bio for you to reserve your seat. In he meantime head over to my friend Theresa's page @linenandcake and follow along her fun and beautiful feed and her stories will bring a smile on your face!!
Loving life, selling prints. Living in gratitude. Thanks to @hannahmilessmith for taking pictures of me in front of my art and special thanks, again to @stradacda for allowing me this space in the shop to display the prints! Stop by to see them in real life! Still available for purchase 💃🏻 $45/each.
•love, pray, hug, sing• all things we do pretty well around here. TJ Maxx for the win on these beautiful coasters that provided the perfect surface for my lettering! These would also make cute wedding place cards.
Today is a good day.
Today is a day to Strive toward being better. Today is a day to push aside my insecurities and sometimes crushing perfectionism to create something that exists in the world.
The phrase "Strive Forward" is a phrase that I feel represents my current season of life and especially the last few months since I have dived into the world of freelance design.
Striving Forward, away from the voices telling me I have no talent, voices implied by others and sometimes by myself.
Today is a good day because my Strada Fam has given me a space to put up some artwork! And you can buy it and it can be your's! Stop by, have some quality coffee and maybe you can go home with some quality prints.
I'll be honest, this photo looks nothing like what I typically do and yet... I love it. A pep talk for all us creatives: consistency and having a specific, defined style are all well and good, but never let the pressure to have a perfectly "consistent" instagram feed get in the way of your art. Make stuff that looks different. Post that shiz. Surprise yourself, stretch. It's good for you. ❤️
(Also can we acknowledge that @ledaelle is an absolute queen and is an unbelievable model? Cool, good. I thought so.)
We're having an awesome start to summer over here...a few styling jobs, no workshops until the fall, and lots of camping and outdoor adventures plus working in our yard and garden with our kids ☀️I wanted to remind you of @thecreativesnw big summer bash happening AUGUST 8th at 6pm 🌊 this is open to anyone...ladies + gentlemen, couples, teams, bosses + employees, mothers + daughters! The ticket link is in my bio here and I'm still offering the pre-sale rate this month! Gather a group of your creative pals and enjoy a summer evening on Hayden Lake with us 🥂
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
📷 @linenandcake // from when I made a watercolor sign for her workshop at @thewhitesparrow in Texas. Thanks for the sweet picture, Theresa! She always says "thank you" when I do any calligraphy for her, but she doesn't know I get the sweet end of the deal. I know she's always going to make my work look more amazing in her pictures, because her pictures are magic. :) P.S. She's got some nifty workshops coming up; go check them out at linenandcake.com!
