mer_mag I've been loving @smartcreativew's video on where you are on your creative journey. (She uses my fun illo of #tinytravelertilda in her balloon traveling across the world which I think fits perfectly). It's funny because I've always tried to be patient with myself no matter where I was at on my artistic journey but Monica is now helping me to see I just might have to give myself more of a kick and "unstuck" myself. I sometimes get stuck on the "executing" phase. What about you? Are you stuck somewhere? I'm trying to push myself a but more into the next stage. We'll see how it goes, 18h
  •   fabimauricio @mer_mag is that a book of yours? Very interesting 18h
  •   cloudydaygray Yay! 18h
  •   smartcreativew Awww! Thank you for the shout out! I do think execution is the spooookiest phase. Do you stay in the execution phase to long or does it make you uncomfortable because you feel vulnerable? Isn't it just nice knowing we aren't alone in our journey? I think you are a rock star, Merrilee! 17h
  •   mer_mag I stay in it too long! @smartcreativew I sort get on an obsessive train with it and don't promote and search for viable outlets enough. 17h
  •   mer_mag Yes @fabimauricio I'm working publishing #tinytravelertilda which had been a really fun interactive Instagram series. 17h
  •   mer_mag Thanks! @lohersh 17h
  •   mer_mag *a "bit" more 16h

mer_mag "Matilda Elana Montgomery felt rather restless if her feet stayed put in one place for more than just a little bit. It was in her travels that she found her home, her roots, her peace. The exotic, the unfamiliar, the daring, as well as the subtle, the stillness and the humble...these were all things her bones needed and sought for on shores both near and far." Meet Great Granny Matilda! Tilda's daring adventuress great grandmother who paved the way for Tilda and her travels. I'm working on a finalizing #tinytravelertilda in published form for you all at which point I'll reveal the end of Tilda's first travel tale. I can't wait to share!! In the mean time id love some thoughts on where you think Great Granny Matilda grew up. And how old do you think she was when she set out on her first expedition? Tag a friend to help us if you like! #tellthetalewithmer 3d
  •   mer_mag Yes that name does sound British doesn't it @growingberries 3d
  •   inspireme939 @mer_mag I actually think she sounds Australian. They are a British colony. 3d
  •   gessellfamilyof7 @kelseadarling I think you'll love the description of Matilda...she just might be your twin. {:)} I think she was very young and immigrated 3d
  •   gessellfamilyof7 ...immigrated to america by way of a large ship, sailing the wide ocean...many adventures??Great Granny that is. {;)} @mer_mag 3d
  •   olivia.swan She really had been adventuring since the wee age of two and a half, climbing backyard trees and fighting off imaginary pirates, but Matilda took her first trip to an exotic land when she was nearly 14. She packed her bags and set off for India, where spices swim in the air and settle on your clothes, the carpets are made of the finest, softest silk, and colors you cannot even imagine fill even the humblest of streets. 3d
  •   mer_mag Oh I like that too @inspireme939 3d
  •   mer_mag Love it @gessellfamilyof7 3d
  •   chloeatthelodge So adorable, I think you would love this @trilbyjo and @travellingmumma 2d

mer_mag Been helping @jonliddiard out with his classroom decor. Seriously these IB high school students don't know how good they've got it with him as their acting/theatre teacher. Wish I could be a fly on the wall during his lectures. So inspiring that Jon Liddiard. #hesgetsshakespeare #imkeepingthestools 4d
  •   mer_mag @polleipalmer it stands for international baccalaureate http://www.ibo.org/ . It has a really cool curriculum that allows kids from any nation to be on the same page. So they could go from Herriman Utah to Shanghai and be up to speed. I'm hoping it means that when my kids are in highschool we can live overseas for a year 4d
  •   growingberries My daughter starts at an IB school today! In Hong Kong! 4d
  •   mer_mag So cool! @growingberries 4d
  •   sycamorestreetpress Love this! 4d
  •   sarahjanestudios He'll be great!!! 3d
  •   doraohthree My son is a 1st grade IB student. Started as an IB kindergartner. We recently moved from california to pittsburgh (to live where my husband was raised). I'm grew up in portugal and we are hoping to go back and live at my grandmothers for a few years. With IB the boys will still continue on w their curriculum. It's an amazing concept/curriculum. 3d
  •   mer_mag That's so amazing! @doraohthree 3d
  •   houselarsbuilt The coolest! @jonliddiard 2d

mer_mag We're pining for and Indian summer this fall (we can't handle that school is starting next week!) and these are some of our favorite boy styles for just such an occasion. More @pinholepress blog 1w
  •   zanzibach Thanks a lot! You put an awsome collection together 1w
  •   zanzibach @cruzscloset #4 is also from my shop. Very, very soon there will be also new variations of these corduroy pants 1w
  •   gparrish Amazing! All of it, amaaaaaazing! 1w
  •   mer_mag Hee hee @ellen_kling . Yes I guess we are fans of the "superfluous crotch" look. My six-year-old loves the way they feel and wears them all the time. My eight-year-old on the other hand wants nothing to do with them. I guess it's different strokes for different folks. 1w
  •   mer_mag Yes @cruzscloset they would only let me tag @zanzibach once. We totally want the longer leggings for fall! 1w
  •   ellen_kling @mer_mag hah. I would probably side with your 8 yo and freak out due to the inevitable bunching :) 1w
  •   cruzscloset Thanks, they are super cute! @mer_mag @zanzibach 1w
  •   evelynhaupt So cute!! @casscasssface 1w

mer_mag "Everyday he insisted she put his bear suit on him. And every day she did just that. For even though she knew he'd always be her little cub, she could see the suit growing tighter and smaller with each wear. And some day he would grow too large and forget to bring it to her at all. So for now she was more than happy to oblidge." #littlebitsbymer 1w
  •   mommyfajardo I just stopped crying and now I just started. I just realized I'm going to be a horrible mother-in-law, I'm never going to want to let go of them. I'll make they're favorite foods and send their spouses on getaways so I can have them all to myself. It's our little secret. @carriepie321 @mamamo613 1w
  •   mamamo613 Lol!! That is so cute Kristie! You're gonna be a great MIL. I love it when Susie sends food!! This is pretty sad...... 1w
  •   mamamo613 @carriepie321 @mommyfajardo I sent by accident. I wasn't finished. Lol. But yes @carriepie321 you will most likely hang out at the school way longer than you should. I did!! I kept peeking through the window which made it worse because I could see that Sophie looked terrified 1w
  •   dlyndlyndlyn You got me all choked up 1w
  •   lesliewestphal6 This is so beautiful!!! It reminds me so much of my son, who will be heading to college next year!! It truly does go by so fast! Enjoy the little moments6d

mer_mag I'm happy she like dolls but maybe more happy she's drawn to books first. Oh and shoes. She already wants to wear a different pair every 10 min. #wereintrouble #freshlypicked 1w

mer_mag When I was a girl I was all about summer magic - making picnics with Forrest sprites and going on woodsy explorations. Channeling all that into my latest girls summer style post for @pinholepress today on their blog. 3w

mer_mag "Her walks began to take her to new places. Pieces and parts of land where she had never been. She felt almost ready to discover them, so long as she had bunny by her side. She was not ready leave him behind...no, not just yet." Another #littlebitsbymer custom portrait order that I thought I'd share with you today. If you're interested in a custom portrait of your little one(s) (with a little story line) email me at merrileeliddiard [at] hotmail dot com. 4w

mer_mag Of all my kids she came with the least amount of hair. And the tiniest unique toes. I love seeing each child bit by bit reveal who they truly are. This girl is shaping up to be a performer - and somewhat of a ham. She'll doing anything to get a laugh. I wish I could bottle up her laugh (which is really sort of a cackle) and put it in this box too. (Photo by @trishazemp for a @minted blog post on making a memory box) 4w

mer_mag Thought it best to crack down and make a baby memory box for my daughter before, you know, she's a teenager. (It's hard to admit she's in full scale toddler mode now!). See more on the blog and @minted Julep for printable tags to use in your own memory keeping. (Photography by the lovely @trishazemp) 4w
