Happy Thursday you beautiful people 💗
*Long post alert*
I'm thrilled to have been asked by the wonderful @pipwilcox to be part of the finale week of @makers4refugees If you're not familiar with it then pop over to her page- link in my profile. In a nut shell it's a global collective of makers creating work to help the refugee charity Help Refugees. This past year, the world has gone through (and is still going through) a pretty horrid time and it's sometimes hard to know how to help. Pip puts it beautifully: 'There were days when I felt powerless and ineffectual, and profoundly aware of my privilege. During these times, making can seem like an insignificant and trivial activity, but it's what we makers can do.' I have been asked to auction some of my work via my Instagram page- my auction will take place during week commencing Nov 27th. I'm planning to offer one off or limited edition pieces- you could get your hands on something really special and help a very deserving cause in the process- so start saving some pennies folks 😉. This vid is of me throwing a dinner set thisavo 😊 Thank you for getting to the end of this post 😘 Peace Out ✌️
The intersection between art & music has always been where a lot of the creativity manifests. ✨ I created another playlist of some of the songs that have inspired me while creating my exhibition! Check the @spotify link in my profile to listen! 🎶
What new or old finds have inspired you and your creativity in this season?

My growing collection of vintage weaving books ✨
I got my first books from the woman I bought my large tapestry loom from about a year ago. She gave me a few along with the loom and a few shuttles too, what a bonus! I've since picked up a few more at second hand shops and book sales. I love flipping through them, perusing the black and white photos for inspiration, and referencing techniques I can never seem to remember 🙃
Thursday always feels like the longest day of the week—good thing I love my coworkers. Around the office, I'm now known as the "spooky girl," because of my love for true crime and horror (they don't know the half of it, friends). The first time someone asked me what I wrote and I said thrillers and horror, she was taken aback. "You're too cute to write such dark stuff!" Maybe, but I do. There's a dark mind behind my sweet disposition, but I only let it come out and play in my writing. When it spills over into my "real" life, like it has at the office already, I try to look on the bright side. Since discovering my interests, I've had coworkers approach me and ask my thoughts on IT (2017), recommend documentaries, and debate with me about who'd win in a fight between new/old Pennywise (new, of course—THOSE FREAKING TEETH!!!). So maybe being the "spooky girl" isn't so bad after all. 👻
What are some of your unusual interests? What do people think of them? ⬇️
Found my design groove on some things I'm excited to share, but can't yet. This puppy needs to hurry up and 💩so I can get back to work! She also finally has a name. #AgnesVonStrudel#cuteaf#creativityfound @smidge.design
This past week, I was lucky enough to spend time with my personal #mastermind group.
For #theheartfeltgrid challenge #dayfour , we are supposed to talk about someone who inspires us.
All of the ladies in this group inspire me in so many ways! I have learned and grown with them and I cannot thank them enough.

Thinking about today's #freeupmyinsta prompt #simplepleasures ... finding time to work on creative jobs like painting up baubles for the shop definitely feels like a #simplepleasure now... altho so does drinking a whole cup of tea while it's hot so it's all about celebrating the small wins nowadays...

I'm so looking forward to this weekend and the #harvestmoonartfest ! Last year I made so many new friends and to all you artists (from all the mediums) I have a fun little interactive activity if you come by. Look for me (there in the pink) on the Houston St. side of the courthouse in Granbury, TX!
Headed out of Maine today and I'm a little sad. 😭 it's been a beautiful adventure here, and I'll take a little cottage on the ocean (with good wifi) any day! This has been a good week with exciting things happening for @thrivecreativecon - isn't it amazing how some good news can motivate and propel you to get all the things done? What's something that's inspired you lately?? Tell me some good news! ✨
