happy friday + a little sneak peek!

Happy Friday, friends!
I just couldn't wait any longer to share this sneak peek with you:

These are the beginnings of mini dream-catchers(!!!!)
I'm only a little excited about this. ;)

This weekend I plan on stealing away a bit of time to play with ribbons + paint and get these beauties added to my etsy shop. Stay tuned! 

Hope you have a great weekend.

the dreamer in me

We've got big changes on the horizon, friends.
There's a pile of boxes in the living room.
Artwork is coming off the walls that will need to be patched up and painted.
Belongings are being sorted through.
All that we don't need or what no longer brings us joy will be left behind.

The dreamer in me loves times just like this... nothing ahead but possibility.
But these periods of transition often leave me with giant feelings of overwhelm, too.
Somewhere deep down I want to know all of the details, already!

We are making a conscious effort to remain present during these last few weeks here.
In this house we made a home, (our first, as a married couple!) and in this little town in the mountains we know we will miss.

The sun came out yesterday and we rode bikes to the river and laid in the grass.
These are the moments I'll cherish forever.

Last weekend, we spent a day house-hunting.
I tried so hard not to fall in love with anything or to get my hopes too high...but I just couldn't help myself with this one.
The most dreamy views we could ever imagine!
So I'm putting all of my positive vibes out there and visualizing this little piece of heaven as ours.

Five minutes from the beach, but inland just enough to get out of the wind and feel the warm sunshine!

I'm excited to share the next chapter with you, friends.

dream your wildest dreams

This morning:
Lorde playing in the background
A kitty napping in the sunlight, streaming through windows
Coffee on (always on)
Packaging up one of my favorite dream-catchers to send to a new home
in California!

Happy morning, indeed. <3

There are several dream-catchers left in the etsy shop,
and...I'm so thrilled about some new goodies coming soon - MINI dream-catchers!
I'm talking 3" of colorful, mixed media goodness.
I'm thinking perfect for the car, workplace, or anywhere you need a little dose of beauty.
Can't wait to show you <3.

Hope your week is beautiful.

hearts bursting with happy + adventure

We've had an amazing 3+ years living in the mountains,
but our hearts are bursting with happy and adventure
as we prepare to move home...
where sunshine + sand tangle in hair,
wild winds howl,
and the waves always dance.

Forget everything except this moment.

Let's just forget everything except for this moment.
The messy paint on fingertips.
The texture, color, and the way it feels to let what's in, out.

freedom in these pages

Friends, I really can't explain how it took me so very long to begin the goodness that is art journaling. There is so much freedom in these pages, I tell you! I've got an art journal tutorial over on Stampinton's Blog - so much fun!
Do you art journal? I'd love to see your pages! xo
