My unique and well earned, hard learned, ability to process things through a place of gratitude does not make the gravity of the event any lighter for me. I struggle, just a little less now and a bit quieter, acceptance will do that to you. .
Live a life like mine and you may well have a similar outlook. I'm still a WIP though much like many of my art pieces because,
the process,
the growth
is most important to me; more than the completion... there really is no completion to growth anyhow. .

Thinking about what inspires and moves me and trying to follow its wisdom instead of fight against it. #inspiration #lightandshadow #muse #iamawip
I was mega reluctant to post this awful mess, because quite frankly it's a health hazard and embarrassing af. Ultimately I also wanted to post it because it is embarrassing (good to see this kinda thing) and sometimes things in the studio aren't as peaches n' cream as ya might think. This is what my work table looks like after finishing up a kiln load of work for several shows and a workshop at @gdesantis (six spots left!). Time to clean this midnight train wreck up and begin deco! 🤣 #healthhazard #yuck #cleanupcleanup #clay #ceramics #wip #iamawip #sometimesihatemyself #wtf #dontdothis #thingsnottodo #realbad
Went to the @dallas_world_aquarium on Monday. The colors! Today I am finding out how much of my metalsmith tools have remained in boxes since I moved. This needs a setting and a chain, so I guess today I organize beyond the enamels. #vitreousenamel #glassonmetal #torchfiredenamel #enamelartist #enamelart #contemporaryenamel #metalsmith #inspiration #wip #theyareallwips #iamawip #mvhdesigns
happy Monday.. follow your heart.. that's what I am aiming for even when I am tempted to let go..the creative life is a gift 🎁 one to unwrap slowly even when I am so eager to pull off the paper quickly and see the surprise inside!!! Thinking it will take the rest of my days ... 😍🎁😊🌻 #creativelife #iamawip #momdaymusings #followyourheart #milagroscharms
Funny, did you really think I have not been called worse by far better then yourself ? A woman always keeps momentum in her back pocket because it overflows from her artful soul and therefore, because she can. Besides that, I have more art in my back pocket then you will have in your over skilled and ever lacking scrambled brains. Keep trying, it's never going to happen. Now, #watchmesomemore

This #agnessweater has gone way off the rails, but it's a really fun learning experience. Firsts for this yearling knitter include picking up button bands, making Button holes, #steeking , colorwork on a sweater (I had done hats previously), and soon to be #blocking for the first time. I need to add sleeves, but am just marveling in the glow of knowing I legit can do anything I put my mind to. #makersgonnamake #knittersofinstagram #quinceandco #iamawip #experimentalknitting
Thank you @toltyarnandwool for hosting another incredible #makersmarket showcasing all local artisans talents & wears!
It was my eldest first time visiting your shop & needless to say, it was love at first sight. They've already wound all the @spincycle_yarns & is multiple rounds into their #hyaksocks. I've placed all my new pins on my Fringe bag & can't wait to light my candles from @waxandwool tonight and plan which new necklace to wear tomorrow. #toltmakersmarket #knitforadventure #camptolt #bagblingforbadbitches #waxandwool #knitlife #shoplocal #handmadejewelry #shoppingtherapy #happinessishandmade #iamawip #woolybling #yarnsnob #independenceyarn
Inspirobot.com, sharing wisdom to last through the ages. 🖤I haven't been around much lately, as I'm preparing to leave Wisconsin and get back on the road. Vanlife, always calling me back. This time I intend to stay out of the cities as much as possible and spend as much time as I can wilderness camping on BLM land or other free wild spaces. Face to face with the mountains canyons and rivers. During this time I hope to make enough money to get around through my Etsy shop and by selling my jewelry at fairs and markets, plus picking up side jobs such as harvesting fruits and vegetables. Now is a time to focus on health, physically and mentally. To focus on and practice what truly works. I'm excited. 55 days. 🙏🏻🖤🤘🏼 #vanlife #vandreams #vanliving #homeiswhereyouparkit #homeiswhereyoutakeit #homeonwheels #rollinghome #natureishome #inspirobot #wisewords #wip #iamawip #lovemylife #rollinghome #sheexplores #travelforever
Nunca levei a sério essa coisa de redes sociais, mas acho que preciso me disciplinar e fazer um trabalho bacanudo com meu maior vício: os livros. Por isso penso em ter de três a quatro posts por dia. Trarei opinião do que estou lendo, matérias interessantes que leio por aí, lançamentos, encontros de leitores e coisas do estilo. Não serei a louca da intelectualidade ou a blasézona. Também não sou adepta da leitura dinâmica, livros precisam ser dissecados, ou seja, não farei contagem mensal das obras lidas... Posso chegar a 50 durante um ano e não em 30 dias... Na maioria das vezes, as fotos serão minhas, exceto quando alguma matéria tiver uma ilustração bem legal ou eu receber a capa de um livro que vai chegar ao mercado em breve... Então chega de regras e senta que a história vem em doses homeopáticas 😉 #livros #books #viciadaemlivros #bookworn #bookaddicted #bookstagram #euformoleitores #igbooks #igersbooks #bookaholic #sãopaulo #sp #leiaemsp #projetodisciplina #iamawip #afotodopostédeumpapeldepresente
The static has cleared as I have been sober. Now I just have to learn how to deal with all the information. It can overwhelm me at times causing anxiety to take hold. I have to learn how to live with that as well.

It what gets me up in the morning, the idea that I get to live with all this. I am not numb from all the alcohol. I am clear and focused. #modernart #fineart #WIP #IamaWIP

Oh the places we can go!! This is my handspinning efforts from exactly a year ago. I'll always be a WIP.

Making some progress on the kiddos' advent calendar! My favorite part of these, aside from being super tiny, are the mistakes. Unlike things I make for the shop, I don't feel like these tiny ornaments have to be perfect. They are a proper reflection of me and how I'd like the kids to remember me: flawed but always trying. #iamawip
