More often than not, we can find ourselves immersed in our own thoughts, which can be judgy and hurtful. ⠀⠀
At those times, when our minds are easily taken away and might lead us into a land of anguish, stress or despair, we can take refuge in other people’s words. ⠀⠀
I recently discovered the beautiful resource that is The Poetry Pharmacy by William Sieghart and I loved it. I started reading and listening to poems and it brought such a refreshing realization: there is art in all of us. ⠀⠀
One way or another, we all have something artistic to offer. Maybe through words, design, dance, or even just our appreciation of someone else’s art. ⠀⠀
There is more than meets the eye, always. Our lights have yet a lot of shining to do…
⠀⠀
What kind of art do you offer the world? 🤩

💫 NEW PROJECT 💫 . I’ve been a bit off grid this last week as I’ve been a busy bee painting and setting up my very own EKA workspace! It’s not quite there yet but I couldn’t wait to show you! I know it may seem obvious but I just want to say a HUGE thank you to each and every one of you who has purchased, liked or shared posts and generally supported me 🙏. Without you this is just not possible and I feel so grateful that this idea of mine has been able to grow🌱 . (The hubby is pretty darn happy too to have his garage / man cave back although I keep telling him he will be sad it won’t smell as nice 😂. )

Clever Canopy may be new, but I've designing for years. Mary is one of one of first clients and I've been with her through all the growth seasons of her business.⁠
⁠
Her photography style focuses on feminine details and is very clean. So, when designing her new brand collateral and logo, I went with a simple ( but still pretty!) style featuring a drawn floral element that has a little wink to her girly style.⁠
⁠
So, tell me...what's your favorite flower?💐⁠

My hoops are usually made of wood or bamboo... and they are naturally beautiful! But, that doesn't mean they have to be "naked"!... Some, even get the chance to "wear" accessories, like these three!

I’ve lost count of exactly how long we’ve been doing it, but I think around 5 years ago I said to Leon that instead of just saying “I love you” before bedtime, we should also begin each day with those words. So we started doing exactly that and saying “Morning baby, I love you soooo much” as our first greeting. If one of us is away we say it by text or phone call instead. We say it even if we’ve argued or one of us is in a bad mood. It kind of re-centers everything. Brings us back a little. And I don’t think for a minute it’s something exclusive to being in a couple. Starting the day by sharing love for anyone or anything can lift a mood or a heart.

I have a lump in my right breast that has been agitating me for a couple of days. Something showed up on my mammogram at the end of last year and they scheduled a six month follow-up. COVID-19 came along and I couldn’t easily get to the clinic, but I finally have an appt for next Thursday. I think it’s probably benign. I’ve had lumps show up before and my breast tissue is definitely changing as I get older. But I also have a mother who’s had breast cancer twice, so I don’t take any chances.

Today I’m trying hard to find slivers of sanctuary. Moments to take a deeper breath and be intentional with words, actions and love.

Do you keep empty thread spools? 🧵🧵🧵Well, I’ve got a little hack for you today that’s going to make you want to keep them or reconsider how you currently use them. 
Stay organized and tangle free as you’re attaching or storing your binding by winding it up on an empty spool. Check out the tutorial of this hack on my stories today. If you’ve missed it, don’t stress. It will be saved in my Insta highlights. I’ll also be answering any questions on my stories.

Do you find it hard to write about yourself / your brand? 
YOU’RE NOT ALONE.
-

Most people find it downright awkward to write about themselves, much less toot their own horn or sell themselves.
-

You’re probably not a copywriter and almost certainly not a content creator!
And you’re just not the type to brag about yourself, Or maybe you don’t have the time it takes to write tantalising marketing copy. -

In fact, if you need to fit one more thing into your day you might just spontaneously self-combust.
Relax.😂😄
-

All you need to do is hire a specialist copywriter or content creator,  and they’ll get it all sorted for you!
-

Do I know a good one?
I sure do. Pssst, it’s me…and I’ll do a great job for you. Swears!🙃😂

The Conservatory was originally a room for music practice and performance. This room is a popular bump-out option on our Winthrop model. With 16-foot ceilings, this space lets the sun in, adds elegant street presence, and depth to interior views. Of course, it's also a wonderful piano + music room!
