poeticaesthetic An older photo, but with Valentine's Day rapidly approaching, I thought it appropriate to post. Those shutters make me swoon. 4d

poeticaesthetic A little drive up the highway to see @blackbearwhiskey over at @tildeathdenver to have this beautiful piece added to my arm today. I've been going through some heavy stuff lately, and Jacob knew how important & precious this particular piece is to me. This was my first time visiting him or his shop. He made it clear from the moment I walked in that it was equally as important to him, to make sure that I got exactly what I wanted. The experience I had with Jacob & Til Death was top notch, from appointment scheduling, right up until I walked out the door. I've never cried at the sight of a new tattoo on my skin... Until today. Thank you @blackbearwhiskey , for taking such great care of me & for giving me such a gorgeous piece of artwork to wear. It was well worth the drive to a neighboring city. 6d

poeticaesthetic Insomnia has me browsing through old photos... This one comes from the end of December & my last minute gift shopping. I had stopped in at an awesome little pop up shop downtown and picked up some great stuff made by some really cool local merchants. The pop up shop is gone, but the merchants still sell their fantastic & unique wares online. Check out @welivestudios , comprised of @amosleatherworks @theworley @cafemotique & @theuniverseconspires . I would never have found this place without @coloradocollective ... If you live in CO, they're a must-follow account! 1w

poeticaesthetic Putting the finishing touches on my art space by making more art to hang on the walls. I can't take full credit for this... I saw this image in a book and decided to draw it up so I could hang it. I've built myself a space that I love...I'm surrounded by things that hold deep meaning for me... This space brings me a lot of comfort and happiness. I'm finally ready to get back to work photographing. It's been a long time coming... Im so ready. 1w

poeticaesthetic Made a mobile to fill some empty wall space in my studio/art room. It took forever, but I kinda love it. A lot. 2w

poeticaesthetic Books comfort me like nothing else can. I love the way they smell. I love the way they feel in my hands. Their contents take me far away from where I am, and relieve me of my pain. There is little in this life more sacred than a book. Their tangibility is priceless. 2w

poeticaesthetic This is from last summer... But it absolutely encapsulates my current mood. Plus, it's beautiful. I've lived in CO almost all of my life, and I've NEVER seen an electrical storm like this. It lasted for over and hour, and the lightening strikes were non-stop the entire time. It occurred at about 3am. I had gone to the store for something, but instead, ended up sitting on the hood of my car and watching this in total awe. To this day, it remains one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. I wish I could share the entire video.... 2w

poeticaesthetic No sleep. Currently listening to the lo-fi stylings of Karen O's Crush Songs... Reminiscing. Seeing her live was one of the highlights of my life.... Daydreaming about picnicking on the moon...watching stars explode at my whim... A supernova light show, just for me. 2w

poeticaesthetic It's a tough pill to swallow when you know you've been forgotten...when you feel like the meat of your heart has been scooped out with a dull spoon... But you forge ahead anyway... Trying new things... Hoping that art will rescue you once again. Who knew that the scratching of a pen on paper could be a life saving tool. Hello again, my friends... Lets engage in art talks... Let's leave our mark. 2w

poeticaesthetic Last week I planted a ton of gorgeous flowers to cheer up my patio area. Last night, Piper decided to climb in to the giant pots and dig them all up. These raspberry colored babies are all that remain. if I didn't love that puppy so much, she'd be mulch. 8mon

poeticaesthetic Time to share another magnificent photographer with you, my wonderful little pocket community. This lady is very dear to my heart, so please forgive me for gushing. Several years ago, when Instagram was a teeny tiny community of photographers and photography enthusiasts, this enchanting woman entered my life. At first, I admired her quietly... But we became fast friends through discussions about photography (of course), crafting and baking. When you look through her feed, you feel like you've entered a world of magic and whimsy... It's like stepping in to the most wonder-filled children's adventure book. @carrafay lives her life with gusto, with unparalleled passion and gratitude. The way she captures her little corner of the universe while on adventures with her adorable son make me feel like Never Never Land is real, and it exists in the Pacific Northwest. Not only is she an unbelievably talented individual... She has been one of the dearest friends I've ever had. Give her feed a little peek... You might find that you never want to leave. 8mon
  •   carrafay Oh my my, Kristen. Way to make a gal blush! Thank you for all the gushing, you are the sweetest friend ever! My feed has been a bit boring as of late due to busyness and a broken phone. But hopefully that will be remedied soon and I will be able to share our little corner of the world more regularly. I love you, lady! 8mon
  •   muddysunsets @carrafay I agree with Kristen, Carra. Your feed is swoon worthy. 8mon
  •   skygirlsunsetload Beautiful photo and words. Thank u for sharing 6mon
  •   silvanawendt Fantastic your gallery!!! 6mon
