Celebrating all things handwriting today! Did you know handwritten illuminated manuscripts date all the way back to the year 1000? It’s true! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I first started to practice my handwriting back in first grade. I even remember the newsprint paper we used. It had those huge dotted lines to help you keep everything neat and lined up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ By middle school, computers were the new thing and typing soon took over. I admit I found the digital medium easier to work in and eventually, my interest for handwriting faded. In junior high, I even started typing out all of my homework assignments. Including math 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It wasn’t until high school that I re-discovered my passion for writing by hand. I dabbled in calligraphy and lettering art. Then once I started college and learned to truly understand and appreciate the history of lettering and typography, I was hooked. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Handwriting is truly a beautiful art form. If you haven’t taken the time to do so lately, I encourage you to celebrate this day (which also happens to be John Hancock’s birthday) by handwriting a special note or message and sharing it on social media. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Feel free to tag me so I can see it and show you some love 📝

TWENTY SIX // On Tuesday I celebrated my 26th birthday (ancient right 😜). It made me want to look back at my previous 25 years on earth and ponder some of the biggest life lessons I’ve learnt to date. . . . 1. Your life is now, learn to love it and don’t wish away a single second. I’m trying to be even more intentional now about staying in the moment, looking forward to the future yes but not hoping time goes any faster than it already does . 2. Thrive, don’t just survive. Playing it safe worked for a while as I was gaining knowledge and self-esteem, but I am so ready to just be brave and thrive, feeling the highs and the lows . 3. Failure is good, it’s part of the experience. Learn from it and embrace it as part of the journey . 4. Don’t be afraid to say No. A big one mostly for my professional life, I may be able to do most things but that doesn’t mean I have to everything. Only things that set my soul on fire . 5. Use sunscreen and take your makeup off, every single day. This one I would literally yell at my younger self if I could. I am trying to reverse a lot of the damage in my teens and hope I got on to it before it’s too late and I turn into a wrinkly pimply prune . 6. Don’t compare yourself to someone else’s highlight reel. It’s most prominent now with social media but even as a teen or at uni, comparison was a thief of joy but I know my triggers a lot better now so try to avoid comparing where possible 😅 . 7. Adopt a pet, it will bring you both so much joy. I adore my rescue pup, she may be a bit rough around the edges but that’s what makes her special and I don’t think I’d buy a dog again if I can save one . 8. Surround yourself with people who inspire and challenge you, don’t waste time on anyone who brings you down . 9. Be grateful for the small things. Even fresh air, or a comfy bed. I think as a kiwi I’ve been wrapped up in cotton wool a bit because of our beautiful country and communities, it’s taken growing

“No rain, no flowers” ✨ I got a panicked phone call from one of my amazing mentoring students today. She was so worried because it’s “booking season” and she felt like she was failing because she wasn’t getting the inquiries she wanted- but she felt like every other photographer she followed on social was booking up! ✨ We took a step back together, talked through marketing strategies, put some new plans in place and I had to remind her of two important things. ✨ 1- when you feel overwhelmed don’t forget- no rain, no flowers. No one succeeds 100% of the time. It’s impossible. Use this season to work on your growth. And 2- STOP comparing yourself to people on the internet! You don’t know what they are booking! You don’t know if they are reaching their ideal client, if they are reaching their goals, and honestly you shouldn’t let it hurt you if they are!!! That’s working from fear, from a scarcity mindset, and their clients are not your clients!! ✨ We both hung up feeling fired up, and I wanted to share this in hopes that you could feel a little fired up with us!! 🔥 #communityovercompetition
Meanwhile at our little seaside studio, everybody is positioning themselves right in front of the aura of the #dyson hot air fan..... -----------------------------------------------------------------#dogsofinstagram #thatsdarling#rescuedismyfavoritebreed #creativityfound#laphk#livethelittlethings#darlingmovement#fitspo#cats #swimbikerun#tibetansingingbowl#flyyoga#ootd#cute#hkig#vscohk#vscocam#livefolk#liveauthentic#petitejoy#yogaeverydamnday#cleaneats#yogagirl#surgery#rescued #poodles

Bij het ontwerpen van toekomstige websites wil ik veel meer focus gaan leggen op het hele brandingproces en het bepalen van je ideale klant. ⠀ ⠀ Ik kan dus ook niet wachten totdat dit geweldige boek, boordevol inspiratie, binnen is: Brand Brilliance van @thebrand_stylist 🖤⠀ ⠀ Zo jammer dat het in Zweden altijd superlang duurt voordat een boek binnen is, en bij Bol.com is ‘ie niet verkrijgbaar (ja, vanuit NL zijn boeken vaak sneller hier 🤔)⠀ Thanks @marianne_krohn for the video 🙌🏼💕 ⠀ 📷 credits @thebrand_stylist ✨🌙 #brandbrilliance#brandbrilliancebook
How many of you have been #tidyingupwithmariekondo these past couple weeks?🧺📚📦Mackenzie and I took the weekend to do our bedroom. Yes, this is ONLY CLOTHES. I have four bags and he has three. It’s tricky to get in and go through the girls’ rooms, but I can definitely predict I’ll be getting rid of at least half of their clothes. . . . ✨If you look closely you can see Ezra fixing her Hello Kitty’s bow so it’s just right for the photo.❤️ . . Do you have favourite outfits on repeat for your little ones? I feel like it just makes it that much easier to think of those outfits/pieces and then you have the stragglers left behind at the bottom of the drawers😂😂 #tossthestragglers
At the end of the month we are making the move to have both kids in the same room and I’m so nervous they are going to keep each other up! It seems to be the norm now for everyone to have their own room, but it’s not an option for us. Do you guys have any tips?! #iwantmybedback
Great night of volleyball tonight!!! I haven’t decided if I like my new shoes or not. I love my other pair of ASICS that I wear everyday to work, but the jury is still out on my court shoes. Time will tell. . . . . . #fleece#cozy#blanket#favourite#favorite#handmade#madewithlove#madeincanada#canadian#snuggles#snuggle#etsy#etsycanada#warm#etsy#etsyshop#etsyfinds#creativity#etsylove#etsyhunter#shopsmall#shophandmade#girlboss#makersgonnamake#creativityfound#busymom#volleyball#asics#shoes#mississauga

Blue and white ceramics. 💕 my kids often love to touch break-ables at the store. I often feel like my mother telling them to look with their eyes not with their hands. I was shopping at my local thrift store and hear a crash followed by giggles. I turn and realize that a little kid has smashed several pots with great enthusiasm. I felt terrible for the mom but started quietly laughing because I was so relieved that it wasn’t my kids. #makeart2019
“Perhaps this is what this season is all about: trusting in the unknowns, finding gold in the little things, trading fear of what’s uncertain for freedom to thrive within it.” ⭐️ Morgan Harper Nichols ⭐️ Playing with transparency, skins and stitching.

Jewelry in my story, paintings on my feed... I promise I’m still a wedding designer! I’m just having an exploratory January you might say... 😂 Trying to get those creative juices flowing with some new side hobbies. - So remember those plywood shapes? This is my favorite completed one so far. Stuck with the flat, graphic look I’ve been into recently. - Also yes there is a hair on her bathing suit.. it’s from my annoying af jute rug and I didn’t feel like photoshopping. Word to the wise: don’t buy a *cheap* jute rug just because it’s the style.. IT WILL SHED ON EVERYTHING.
Have you ever thought about how your environment impacts your mood and well being?⠀ ⠀ There’s a crazy amount of studies that prove a direct correlation between the spaces around us and their psychological impacts. I’m no doctor... but I do know a clean, organized and well styled space makes me feel better.⠀ ⠀ In the theme of a #newyear, take a look around you. How are the colors, lighting, decor and design of your space affecting your mood?⠀ ⠀ Do you need to enhance your surroundings to feel lighter, brighter and more productive?
