Instagram is such a wonderful rabbit hole of inspiration and motivation. Random links landed me on Vanissa Karis' page of beautiful goodness. I am going to pretend that my coffee looks as delicious as this today. She is a dentist, a photographer, creative, brewer, and probably so much more. What a world we live in where a random stranger from overseas can influence me instantly at my home office desk in Seattle. 📷@vanissakaris
We had quite the thunderstorms yesterday! And it's definitely been a lot cooler as I've been making more coffee just because I'm cold 😅 Anyone else want summer back already??? I'm so crushing on this photo! The beauty @moms_camera_skills captured here is amazing! Seriously looks like a sweet summer painting! And darling Piper is still rockin that sweet custom dress 💖
Hi Everyone. It's been a while so I thought I would introduce myself again. I'm Jennifer and I'm the maker behind Zoë and Lila and this is my little family. I have been knitting and crocheting since my Grandma and Mom taught me how when I was a little girl. I took a little break from social media to deal with some serious PPD but I'm back and ready to kick ass! I can't wait to show you all the things that I want to make. Thanks for following along on this crazy journey! 🖤🖤🖤 #meetthemaker#80yearsoldontheinside
Trying something a little different with the launch of my site, giving y'all a taste of my shop with access to my @spotify playlists! I've got three for now, but I'll keep adding to them:
s0s - Pump up jams for bulk material removal
s2s - Driving, but less distracting tunes for focused detail work
s4s - Chill sounds for finish work that remind me to take things slow and appreciate the craft.
If you're interested, you can click the Spotify icon at the bottom of my website to check it out!
If all these hurricanes could stop forming and wrecking house, that'd be great 😭
We managed to avoid any issues with Irma and Jose, but now I've been tracking Maria like a hawk.
My heart goes out to the islands in the southern Atlantic that have been battered by storms for the past few weeks. Please consider donating food, supplies, clothing, or anything you can to these countries. Many of them have lost everything they know and have to start new. Hurricane season can not be over soon enough...
Regardless of everything, I'm pushing to have some patterns released this week. I have them all written up and just need to add some photos for some of the steps. It's been a little while since I released a pattern, so this is pretty exciting! Stay tuned ✌🏻
✂️ is complete. That's all it takes for the #daysendquilt (can you see the strips of #konasnow on the right?)
This quilt was originally created using improv methods but came together so nicely and in a way I could easily translate into a pattern. So, this is my last sample and then the pattern will be ready for testing ☺️
Joining in on the #yourownwaycon Instagram challenge with @kaylahollatz and sharing how im building my business my own way. Im @thealishanicole you may know me from personal brand but recently began shifting my focus here! Last year was a rough time in my business, i got caught up in the "shoulds" of the internet and lost the passion for what I do because I was so busy trying to keep up with everyone else. By taking a step back, writing my book and building this community im putting more focus into what ive been called to do which is bringing women together through authentic storytelling! Keep your eye out tomorrow because @kaylahollatz will be a guest on the podcast chatting about her journey and the @yourownwaycon !
After work 🍫
Ok, det är dax att inse att jag måste sätta in ett element om jag ska kunna fortsätta jobba ute i studion ( = ej varmbonat uthus på gården). Har arbetat hela dagen i ullkofta, jacka och halsduk och senaste två timmarna var allt jag kunde tänka på varm choklad 😂 Tur då att vi hade alla ingredienser hemma, plus att brasan brann för fullt när jag kom in 🙌. Hej hösten! 🍁🍂
As the seasons begin to change, our skin tends to as well.
I developed Skin Alchemy to work with many different skin types so no matter what your skin is up to this season, you can still enjoy the comfort and confidence that Skin Alchemy brings.
Trying to invoke some Wonder Woman feels this Tuesday morning.
(Also: I knit this! And forgot to share it last month because it was a secret birthday knit for my sister, who sometimes goes by "wonderkaryn.")
Just thinking 💭 back to this cozy scene this past weekend reading under outdoor heaters, knitting and sharing some good laughs with my family. This is something we love to do each early fall. || 1 John 1:9
Can you guys share some family traditions you've developed for you and your kids?
I think fringe is my new friend! In the #inventory bin these pink and (swipe👉🏻) green "Fiesta Fringe Clutch(es)" go! 💃🏻
I need a vote, pink or green?
