i heard this song on the radio tonight and it brought me right back to being on a road trip 13 years ago, listening to it for the very first time. isn’t it crazy how a song teleports you to the time and feelings you had when you first created a connection to it?
Orange & juicy sky!

Throwback to cooler days, when hats and snuggles were absolutely necessary. 😍
I'm amassing a small pile of pieces for an Etsy restock later this week. I call it The Moody Merino Edition.
I have a new found respect for cake pop makers. How the heck do they make the candy coating so clean?! First attempt dabbling in them. Not the prettiest but they do taste yummy! 👅💛

I’ve been sick and haven’t done anything creative all week. Figured I’d sketch some logo ideas in Procreate in basic black and white. It’s down to these two. But I want to play with some color options before I vector them. I’ll probably hate them by Monday and start over. 😂😂
I have the basic outline for next weeks 'creative copy with ease' but I would luuuuv to hear from you!
What would you like to discuss - what hurdle would you like to overcome with writing copy for your business? 👇🏼
I don't usually post reception photos but these two had such a stunning day that I couldn't resist!! 😍Valerie and Jordan's wedding day was absolutely perfect from start to finish and Valerie made one insanely gorgeous bride! I can't wait to post more of these two on the blog this week!! 😍
Such a beautiful day when work really isn't work at all. Loved painting with you ladies today and was totally blown away by all your talent!! Thanks so much @heckyesptbo @watsonandlou for having me & @mintfloralco for the stunning inspo arrangement!!
“With each new project we begin, I am reminded of the importance of listening, appreciating and learning everything I can from all the creative, dynamic and wonderfully intriguing people I meet. I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to meet these people, and that it is my duty to share the wealth of their knowledge and experiences with others... It’s my hope that the story of these strong women will remain a constantly evolving conversation that will continue to influence every day of my life - and that perhaps by reading on, you will be similarly affected and inspired by these stories and the women behind them. I believe part of the process of figuring yourself out is a way of connecting the dots between the inspiring, large living, influential people around us, like some sort of hidden constellation of experiences - you only have to know where to look. This book is just the start; for the women you find on its pages, for my team and I, and I hope, for you, to create your own ripples of change, however they may look.”
Can a Running Jacket be a Landscape? Shouldn’t it be a landscape? Or a cityscape? I am drawn to the views I see when I run and I want to bring the memories into my jacket designs. So here is a little smorgasbord of inspiration that led me to design jacket No. 466:
1. Jacket 466 and the home stretch of the mile loop near our house in #bendoregon -
2. The Denver Bronco at the Denver International Airport—that devil! -
3. The start of the girls 4A Cross Country State Championship Meet in Colorado Springs, 2016.
4. Reykjavik, Iceland. Believe it or not, I was stranded there for a week. Blissful! -
5. Watercolor sketch by Andrew Wyeth on cardboard, Denver Art Museum
6. See No. 3
7. Bend, Oregon. I love you truly, Bend. I’m coming for you! -
8. The front and back of original running jacket No. 466. Do you like it? It’s a size XS (all my jackets run a bit big...) You can buy it online at vanderjacket 💙com
Outside bath! I never knew they were a thing until I lived in Dunedin, the coldest place I've ever been 🤔but they totally are decadent and blissful and I can't wait to put this one in the natural Manuka circle clearing by the flax at the river's edge (basically a fairy ring), string up some fairy lights, fill it with salts and rose oil and set up some kind of ice bucket/strawberries/fluffy towel scenario at its side. And maybe a 'do not disturb' sign. Unless you bring tunes as ramblingly sweet as this one does. #worksong#donkeyeatstheflowers#catwouldntstay#solbabesings#outsidebath
It's been a bit quiet in this space over the past few days because there's been so much happening and zero downtime - everything from the amazing art education Feast of Artists event and Blood Mystic dinner, a fun video and photo shoot at the Narromine Air Show and the Dandy Cup (horse races), followed by the biggest and brightest @dubbodreamfestival Today's been about chilling with the fam and some donkey time with @tully_the_donkey 😴
One colourway. Two fabrics 👌🏻 sometimes there can be some differences between the way the colours print on different surfaces but in this case it's fairly spot on 💚 the linen is destined to be a cushion cover and the organic cotton knit will be a blanket
