The November Round-Up | Free Beauty Found on the Internet

I am constantly in awe of the beauty that is there if you have your eyes open to it. Sometimes it will be the little things like digging for vintage treasures with dear friends, foraging in the woods, building the first fire of the season in the studio, and the beauty of paint-covered hands. Sometimes you will even find beauty on the internet. I found so many beautiful little treasures on the internet this past month and I wanted to …

Love Letters From Trail Makers

How would you like to get encouragement sent right to your inbox for the month of February?   I want to share a sweet gathering (that is free) that I have been asked to be a part of and I love the idea and heart of this offering.     For over a decade, we (Meghan and Jamie) have been pouring our creative hearts into the online world.

Are You Open About Who Inspires You?

I don’t know where it came from. This idea that everything you do must be 100% original and you must pull it out from the depths of your being.  It isn’t really you, good, original, authentic…unless you create something that has never been made or done before.

Today I just wanted to ramble a bit (if you have ever met me in …

In our crazy heads we imagined our basement finished within a few years of …

Shut The Front Door

I can’t even stand how gorgeous weddings have become! So personal, intimate, special and full of sweet details. I loved our wedding. I truly believe it was so many of those things. But, if I could do it again (with the same man of course) I can’t imagine how fun it would be. Here  are some dresses that make me swoon….               What about you? What is inspiring you about weddings these days? All …
