This has definitely been a theme in my life for the last year-and-a-half. And as things are shifting, it continues to be uncomfortable but there has been joy in the in-between as we become more deeply rooted in faith & also as things fall into place. I love this quote because rather than simply tolerating the discomfort, it talks of honouring it. It’s our human tendency to want to rush through and get to the other side, but what could we gain by actually respecting the sacred in-between? And by also honouring ourselves as we traverse it? Just some thoughts on my mind today. If you find yourself at an in-between space, I hope you take a moment to honour this particular part of your story. ❤️

How do you find inspiration to keep going in your biz? How do you stay inspired as an artist?
—
I mean, don't you think it's amazing that we get to do what we love... AND get paid for it? Sounds like a dream!
—
The truth is, it's really hard work. And it's way too easy to get burnt out... and start resenting that thing you LOVE so much.
—
One of my favorite ways to stay inspired is to visit museums and art galleries. 🎨 I've also found local art and design organizations that host classes and events — and they've been so fun, and a great way to meet other creatives! —
So, girl, what are YOU doing to stay inspired? Share your secret in a comment below. Cuz, who knows? You might just help another boss babe find her inspiration! 💋 .

We made it to Montreal!! I’ve been wanting to visit this city for years now... somehow I had a feeling I would really vibe with it. ///
So far, I’m LOVING it! Check out how happy I am amidst all of these Indian print blocks. ///
I have two food filled days planned- and I can’t wait to see all the incredible murals too.

#MoodboardMonday on a Wednesday and that’s okay because rules are made to be broken, right?

Loaded with texture and a sophisticated, earthy style. Calm, cool, connected. This one was created during the brand strategy stage of our brand development process, for professional editor and writer Alison Rogers @connectedwords. As I add this project to our website portfolio, I realise I have so much more to share...

📩 Email marketing tip // Don’t ever feel restricted by your email marketing program! It’s easy to get a little creative to add a twist to a template - just like @sassyroad_dapperdrive has done in one of their campaigns.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They’ve used the Collins template, and added their own edited images (a strip of three photos) in the one photo frame - so clever! They’ve even used images that aren’t on their Instagram account (yes you can do that in Postie)!

I’m coming to find that in order for you to see the best of me (work-wise), you need to see less of me. ✌🏼
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know I know. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It sounds counterintuitive in this “busy, hustle, go-getter” world we live in nowadays. 🙄
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But, ya ever heard the saying quality over quantity? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Truth is, I don’t wanna add more noise into the social media world. The work that I put out, I want it to change people’s lives and make a difference. And to be honest, I can’t create work like that every single day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That kinda work? The real, deep, powerful work - it comes when it comes. And I’m learning to be okay with that. 🤷🏻‍♀️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Anybody else out there know what I mean? Have you come to that kinda revelation in your biz!? I really wanna chat it up on this “work from a place of rest, not hustle” topic! 🙌🏼💫

Story time! I wrote a tweet on Sunday morning. At first, I didn’t know if I should post it. But I figured it would probably not get seen so, why not? I wrote a simple ask - I’d like to meet more crafters who are in tech. And... it blew up!! There are quite a lot of us out there. ☺️ If you’re crafty & techy, check out my personal twitter “mellowbeing”. There’s a great thread with lots of creative folk who are making awesome things. I’ve pinned it to my profile for easier access. Which specific tribe would you want to find? Go write that tweet and find your tribe. 💛 (photo by @witheverystitch)

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, but a habit." - Aristotle
_
My parents are very active. My father is 71 and still slalom skiis competitively and is nationally ranked. My mom rows, walks, skis and participates in any pysical activity we try. They showed me the way to be active. Now I've got my little girls in Crossfit Jr. @crossfitloveland and I love it! I wanted to start the habit young so they know that exercising the body is key part of total health. In addition, they watch me, or hear later, how @shamakm and I run, hike, waterski, crossfit, etc.

Being healthy is not an act. It's a habit.

Thank you to my customers and followers for showing me love. It gets me through my days, my tough days helping me smile when I need it and knowing people do enjoy what I work hard doing helps me keep going. #loveforlove

Painting is an incredibly soothing way to spend your time, and you don't even have to be good at it. Case in point - today's DIY project. 🎨 Pick up your brushes, turn on some Enya, and let's paint the day away. The details are in our bio link.
No time to paint? It's also pretty chill to watch others paint, and we're sharing that process over on IG TV! ✌️📺

STOP your scroll and let's play a game! Just in case you don't know who I am, my name is Madeline. I'm a seamstress, fashion addict, and an incoming college student. This is me in my backyard where I take most of my pictures for my page (shout-out to my trashcan for being my reliable tripod). I love using what's around me to be creative and inspire others. Did I mention that I love encouraging others? Let's get on to the game now, shall we? TAG A FRIEND below (irl or online) and tell them what you love about them or a favorite moment with them. We need more smiles here on social media, so go ahead and get tagging!

Happy #tooltuesday
I'm often asked what tools are used when creating #stringart and thought it was time to show you what they are.
In the middle, you see my loyal hammer- which is my most important tool, in fact, it's the only tool used to create the nail outlines.
The two blue smaller tool on the right is used to straighten each individual nail. The blue top right tool is used to trim string ends.
On top is my wooden screwdriver. One thing I love most about string art is the massive layers of string that goes into each creation, the screwdriver allows me to push those layers of string down, allowing me to add many more layers. Sidenote- my trusty wood screwdriver was given to me by my later father-in-law. A little bit of him goes into every creation.
The two sets of tweezers on the left side are my final tools used- both are used to thread the string through, allowing me to create the perfect knot to hold all of that string in place.
Do you have any favorite tools that you use daily?

Sometimes making the tough decisions in business makes you grow that much more in the long run. Business runs best when mind, body and business are all aligned and boy is that a hard trifecta to perfect.
.
Super proud of my girl @sincerelyjackiepaper for bringing up the importance of this over the past month and making some decisions with her own business to improve it all around.
I am so glad we were able to capture the magic that was the Sincerely Jackie Studio in the brand shoot we did last year. I for one can't wait to see the build out of the new home office!!

I don’t think I have many pictures on Instagram where I’m smiling with my teeth.
The reason is simple - I’m extremely insecure about my smile, I don’t like the way my teeth look.

Looking at this picture from last night I realised maybe all the pictures, that made me vow never to smile with my teeth again, never had my real smile.

People can’t smile for real when they don’t see an actual reason for it! So maybe instead of holding on to my insecurities forever I should look for reasons that genuinely make me happy and result in a real smile!

Don’t let your insecurities limit you! Keep Smiling (with or without teeth 😉)

Just got some new #molotow pens, so I thought I would take them for a spin. They are fantastic!! So smooth, so clean, really really like these pens. Also, here’s a bear. Gotta love bears.

Posting another older piece. This was an install piece that I did for a kids room. The piece was titled “when I grow up” and it was pages flying out of a sketchbook with all of the amazing jobs that kids wanted to have. It was designed, cut out, hand painted with posca pens on wood and installed. Even got a bit of news coverage on this one from @gooddaysac definitely a fun piece. I need to get a few more of these up in some new rooms. Anyway just thought I would share. Enjoy!

I just realized that I had never posted pages from my book on here. A couple years ago I created a company and book called flint books, the idea was to “spark” imaginations. The book has no story, just a dozen illustrations and a bunch of lined pages for kids to write their own story...not just make it up but write it, to figure out how they imagine the story progressing from one illustration to the next. The response was awesome, I have sold books to countries all over the world and it was fantastic to see kids light up with excitement as the told their stories to me. Maybe one day flint books will be available everywhere and we will start an imagination revolution!! Just thought I would share...and I will post a few more illustrations from the book as well. Enjoy!
