I’m from the camp that love should be celebrated everyday, so holidays like Valentine’s Day don’t mean much to me. I think it’s so important to celebrate love in the smallest things. Bouquet’s of flowers are great, candy is nice, but the words that actually let people know you love and care about them are the most important thing. This past week I lost two people who meant a lot to me. Grieving is a funny thing, you never know exactly how you will be effected by losing a loved one. Unfortunately, losing someone close to you highlights the fact that it’s important to celebrate life + the love you have for each other when and wherever possible. Last week I decorated the studio windows with a subtle tribute to the spirit of love, which you can never have enough of . . . unless it’s a crazy, obsessed, overbearing kind of love . . but I think that is a subject for a different blog post. 😳 Carry on! ;)
Happy Love Day!

Work in progress . . .
Hey guys, Happy Tuesday! It’s been a little rocky establishing a solid work schedule at the studio. I took much needed time off during the holidays, but the kiddies came down with the flu towards the end so they’ve been sick at home for the past 2 days. Luckily, I can adjust my schedule, and work from home when need be, but it definitely makes it harder to establish open hours for the boutique. So I want to take a minute to say Thank You to all my customers for bearing with me as the open hours schedule adjusts. I am working on some fun new items and can’t wait to get them in the shop for you. Meanwhile, you can always shop online or via instagram and I can email your invoice. Thank God for the mobile offices of today!!
2017 is here guys!!! It’s been a long time coming . . . a whole 365 days in fact! It always feels good to walk into a new year of life. Especially with health and family in tact. I don’t make resolutions anymore, but I do keep a list of things I am always working on in regards to myself; physically + mentally, my family and my business. Nevertheless, I can’t discount that wonderful feeling of newness and fresh-starts that seems to swirl around the start of every new year. I love that feeling! One thing I’ve learned over the years is that if you really want to see change or create new atmospheres in your life, it all begins with your mind. And if you are looking at the beginning of the new year as a jumping off point, bringing old mindsets into the new year with you won’t help you achieve the change you want to see. So on that note, I’m grabbing a glass and sending up the proverbial cheers to new mindsets and progression toward major goal crushing this year!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!! 🎩🍾

a rainy day studio flat lay . . .
I received my inaugural issue of Hannah Magazine in the mail last week. I haven’t had a chance to really delve into the articles, but it’s a visually beautiful magazine. I love the fact that I was able to be a part of it in some way by supporting the Kickstarter program to bring this baby to life, which means that I was able to contribute in some way to someone’s dream becoming a reality. And you know, I am all about that. It makes having this magazine in my hands that much more special. So on this Friday, I’m sending a shout out to all you dreamers. Hold fast to your dreams. Keep walking towards them, baby steps and all. It’s the only way to make them become a reality!
