Quotes Can Be Nice

I love quotes, don’t you? I find quick bites of positivity or quirk a bit uplifting — even the tongue in cheek quotes are fun because they often say what many of us lack the courage to. This is one I particular like this week because it’s so true, right!?  I thought I’d share some quotes that I’ve been collecting over the past few weeks though I have tons more pinned here although some of those are definitely cheeky and not so G rated so viewer beware! These below are tame and good thoughts so enjoy them today as you go about your business…

Wishlist: Art From Etsy

Hello everyone! After pulling together my 14 favorite things from Etsy, I thought I’d do a little round-up of over 30 prints for you from some of my favorite Etsy sellers since many are looking for affordable gifts right now. Prints from artists and photographers are a very sweet thing to send, especially for friends who live far away because prints are flat and light so they’re easy to mail. I love receiving art as a gift, whether it ends up in a frame or on the inspiration wall behind my desk, I always make a place for it. The best part is, whenever I see it I think of the special person who gave it to me and that’s always so nice. Here are some current favorites from Etsy that you may like – enjoy!

Rie Elise Larsen

I always feel a surge of energy whenever I visit the website of Danish designer Rie Elise Larsen. Her work fills me with ideas and I always feel more creative whenever I visit her site for a browse. It’s fun to see what she’s up to and her current collection is just gorgeous. I love the zing of fresh green, neon pink, hot orange and the other crisp brights. I also like seeing pastels with graphic black and white. Perfection!

I found a video (below) of this talented lady showing how to make a fun ‘Julekugler’.

I love watching people make things, don’t you? I’m a huge fan of her work and a customer, I have some lamps, cloth cords and ornaments from her that I purchased at local shop Sommerfugl owned by my good friend Daniela. Isn’t Rie Elise Larsen such an inspiring creator? I think so!
