mooreaseal Regramming this painting I did earlier this month in honor of the beautiful Leonard Nimoy / Spock given to @jenetter who is a lifelong Nimoy fan and follower. I have yet to delve into the world of Star Trek but I do know that Leonard was a wonderful, giving, compassionate, thoughtful, rational and wise human being. He is someone that many people on our staff admire. And we are all grateful we get to have a shining example of someone who did good things with his life in the spotlight. #Spock #leonardnimoy

A quote he loved "popularity is the crumbs of greatness." - Victor Hugo. Don't care about who or what is popular. Go do great things and determine your own greatness. Live Long and Prosper. And be good to yourself and others.

mooreaseal That one time @Pinterest interviewed me about how Pinterest completely changed my life about 4 years ago, and was the number 1 reason why I opened my store in 2013. They then featured my interview next to businesses like @nordstrom, @etsy, and @buzzfeed. Wow.

For those who don't know, I graduated college in 2009 with a degree in Studio Art with an emphasis in Illustration. I came out of college in an economic recession to find no jobs for anyone, even in a big city. So to survive, I started a blog to promote my art and opened an Etsy shop to sell jewelry and illustrations, all the while crying a lot and eating a lot of spaghetti :) Oh and I was nannying 50 hours a week, and performing music, and doing freelance graphic design and illustration. It was hard. but I kept powering through, determined to create a career for myself in a creative field.

Thanks to finding an incredible community of friends through blogging like @lauramazurek, @ourcitylights, @garypeppergirl and @elsielarson, my blog grew and grew and my Jewelry began selling all over the world and was stocked in over 40 stores globally in 2011.

I started using Pinterest while it was in Beta mode when it first launched around the same time as a way to collect inspiration for my design clients. But it soon became an amazing way to collect everything i loved in one place without spending any money :) And without me realizing it, I somehow amassed 250,000 followers in about 6 months! Today I have almost 1 million. Crazy.

mooreaseal My fiancé and I have spent the weekend working away on a DIY for my second book! I finished the manuscript for my first book ##52ListsProject earlier this year and we are just finishing up all the last design elements. The 52 Lists Project is set to be released this September 2015! How crazy is that! My very first published book. I'm so incredibly excited.
And unbelievably, I'm already well under way on my second book which is planned to be released in late 2016! This book will focus more on improving and investing in your home and yourself. I feel like my personal investment is so closely tied to what and who I surround myself with. And I'm excited to share with you some tips on how to improve your spaces on a budget, how to find self confidence and self-worth in simple and fun steps, and you'll gain inspiration and peeks into my life and the lives of a few other incredible PNW create women too. Plus a whole lot more. Ooh I couldn't be more excited! Thank you to @sasquatchbooks for believing in my voice and encouraging me to create these books in 2014/2015/2016.

mooreaseal Ladies We Admire: @arielealasko. If you haven't seen her stunning woodworking before, get your head out of a hole and check out her insta feed and website. Her talent is boundless. We not only love her style and aesthetic, her handwork and dedication to her craft, but we adore the cherry on top that she is such an animal lover and promoter of animal rescue.

In our store, we not only care about the style and quality of a product, we also care about where the proceeds of our sales go to. Did you know that we donate 7% of all proceeds to 5 different types of non-profits? One being the Homeward Pet Adoption Center here in Seattle.
We love style and giving, and we especially admire those who work hard, create without fear, and give back through their passions. We dig you @arielealasko! #mooreasladieswelove
