The season of giving is here and this illustration which is a part of series I created for @JoinDough if more relevant than ever. ✨ I love it when the ideas and beliefs behind illustrations I create for clients align with mine and I totally believe in Dough’s message of empowering women-owned brands. 💛 Support your local small businesses and even more, support your local women owned businesses. 🙋🏻♀️🙆🏼♀️💁🏾♀️
More square tiles! Original concept drawing for the second mural I did for @mwmstorydriven. A cute fact: Queen Anne’s Lace is also commonly referred to as “bird’s nest”
DO NOT COMPARE YOUR JOURNEY TO SOME ELSE’S HIGHLIGHT REEL ON INSTAGRAM! You never know what someone is dealing with behind the scenes. I’m finally learning to enjoy this season, y’all. It’s been a tough one, but I’m reminded that God is with me every step of the way.
Depression tried to take me out, but God has the final say.
Doubt tried to steal my joy, but God has the final say.
I’m forever grateful that I don’t look like what I’ve been through.
That’s exactly why you shouldn’t compare your life to others.
Let God move and work in your life HIS way and you won’t regret it.
I said it before, and I’m saying it again... don’t compare your journey to others. You never know what battles they’ve had to face, what trials they’ve had to overcome, what valleys they thought they’d never make it out of.
Whatever you’ve been through in 2019, this is not the end. It was preparation for your greatest season yet. 2020 is coming, but don’t let the pressure of a new decade make you miss out on what’s right in front of you.
Tomorrow isn’t promised. Do what you can with what you have today. .
i had a BLAST with you all at @shophallelu yesterday!! thanks to everyone that came out!! it’s all thanks to you (local and non local babes) that i’m able to do what i love every day and i’m so very thankful for you all 💕 also shoutout to @courtneygoldfarb + @_micahj_ for helping set up and sell - couldn’t have done it without ya!!
When I chose to do what I love instead of what makes the easiest and fastest money, life came full circle. Yes there’s a lot of ups and downs, doubts, frustrations and all, but those kill more dreams than failure ever will. And the biggest takeaways of all? Definitely a life full of learnings & that of character strengthening. You come out tough, resilient yet full and complete.
Had a great time makes these little pups! It’s awesome to hold digitally created designs tangibly in your hand!
I created the original design on the iPad with Affinity Designer, then used a laser etcher to transfer onto the wood.
i doodled this little stranger things inspired design right after i finished watching season 3...but only just finally made stickers of it! whoops! 🙃 at least you can snag ‘em in time for holiday gifting / stocking stuffers! 💕
🎶This sh*t is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S!🎶
Does anyone remember this throwback? 🤣
But real talk, work has been bananas. So I want to apologize for breaking my holiday theme and not being as engaging on IG because I barely had time to BREATHE. I hope you all are having a more relaxing month than me! •
Since I have no time to go to the mall, can anyone tell me how this cream smells? Does it even smell like bananas? Candy banana? I gotta know!
When I started my Etsy shop this year and was figuring out how to print, package and ship everything, I really wanted to keep my environmental impact as low as possible. 🌿
But that turned out to be not as easy as it sounds 🙈
The thing that gave me the most headaches was the protective sleeve that I package my prints in.
I searched for what felt like months.
I googled till my fingers hurt, but couldn't find any environmentally friendly alternatives that were the right size and fit 🤷🏽♀️🙁
But then I stumbled upon @anna__cosma and thanks to her I found the perfect sized biodegradable 'plastic' sleeves - THANK YOU again!
I am so excited to announce that from now on all the paintings that I print will be packaged in compostable protective sleeves!!! 💚🌱
(there are of course still some older prints left that I printed and packaged before, but let's show them some love as well, as they are the last of their kind 😉)
I'm so happy that I finally found a solution. It might not be perfect - but what is?
In the end it's all just about doing your best. ✨
