A couple of months ago I made my friend’s terrible Yelp review into a book. Here it is formatted for Instagram - although it definitely doesn’t have the same effect, I think it still gets the point across : do NOT. For ANY reason. go to the Burger King near our house.
After this chilly week I'm sure we're all on the countdown for spring! We're counting down to our Spring Market on April 4th. We're excited to put together another event to bring together handmade businesses and handmade lovers.
Applications are open for one more week! Click the link in our profile to access our easy peasy online application.
Imagine a scent where slices of citrus fruit, sprigs of cool mint, and subtle yet beautiful flowers gather together in a mysterious thicket to lead your path onward...
By all means, please follow that trail. It will take you somewhere delightful!!!
I am SO thrilled to announce the return of my shoppe for 2020!
I’ve been crafting up some wonderful items, with the first being a soy wax candle called Petals & Premonitions.
It features artwork by me on the label and is hand-dusted on top with Shimmer & Salt. Yes. Salt. - - -Everyone knows that salt is used to cleanse and purify negative energy and areas. It is even known to extend a candle’s burning time. So, all of my candles will be kissed with salt - allowing me to send good intentions and positive vibes directly to you. 🖤🖤🖤
The candle comes in an 11oz, black-coated glass container and is scented with premium, phthalate free fragrance oils. The wick is made of 100% cotton. ————————————————
Only 3 of these are available at this time, so if you’d like one, best be quick!!!
I have to say again that I am so excited to be back! I will have more items coming that I’ve been working on. They are filled with mighty vibes of goth/macabre/magic/classic lit/overall spookiness. I can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks!!!

Who’s ready for the weekend
Family time, time with friends, and time to relax - those are the little things that make me happy.
What are the little things that you enjoy most
Back to the sleeves of this pretty project. 😍
When you sell online, you simply cannot afford to have anything less than stellar photos of your work.
But what if you’ve never been taught anything about photography
You’re used to just using the auto setting, pointing-and-clicking, and living with the results. You’ve never been taught how to use those camera dials… what backgrounds, framing or lighting to use… and editing, what editing Eep!
You find photographing your products frustrating and stressful – because you just don’t know how to get your photos to look how you really want them to – or even what you want them to look like!
But when you try to find the answers, they are either way over your head – written for experienced photographers – or just not geared towards the creative business owner who does it all themselves.
You need a simple, plain-English guide that answers all your product photography questions – and allows you to use the camera you already have – while making it easy to work out what you want and how to make it happen.
This Guide is the answer you’ve been searching for 🎉 GET TODAY'S DEAL - head over to createandthrive.com/10deals (link in bio). 💡What is the #10DaysofDeals

On using The Ruby Ruler™:
Trusting what the ruler shows you, and using it in your “quilt recipe” (darker value will always go here, lighter value will always go here…) will help the eye see high and low, dark and light, in your quilt.
Value defines form. Then, when you repeat these subtle value differences over and over, in a quilt top, you suddenly have created a lot of form and sparkle. ✨✨
Speaking of yummy coffee, how delicious is this Valentine coffee mug. ☕️ I’m loving the bright red with accents of pink and gold. 😍

Sitting here under my blanket watching the blizzard out the window and being so thankful for the coziness of a hot drink in a favorite mug. This set of three will forever be some of my favorite creations💛 There is such a thrill when every piece of a mug fits together perfectly: the shape, the handle, and the glaze. To me these embody the perfect balance of cozy and joyful.☕️🧁
Happy Friday everyone! I have 4 more mugs to glaze and then I am firing tomorrow. That means if it all survives I'm planning a restock for January 25th! I will announce on here if the firing goes well. I'm trying a lot of new things so you just never know! 😱😂😊
Anyways more to come and I hope you all have a great weekend! ❤️❤️
As much as I love to work on one piece at the time, start to finish, I’ve set a new goal for this year. Finish 12 paintings 16x20 or larger. Might be a tall order given my schedule but worth the try. On the easel is (my favorite size to work on) 20x24 inches and on the table is 36x36 inches, by far the largest and most intimidating surface I’ve tackled. #goals❤️ now that the beak is over and I’m all warmed up...let the party start.
