Taking my time with my designs + social media and it feels so relieving to slow down, focus on my work, and prioritize joy. I’ll still be here—just with more of a JOMO mentality ✨. Also I’m making #polkastripes a thing so feel free to hop on the maximalist bandwagon with me 😂

2018 has been all about growth + change for me. In order to grow as an artist I had to make a few changes, including how much time I spent on Instagram. I used to be strict about what I posted and how much I posted on here, but I decided to change gears and have no rules—and it worked for me! By taking myself out of the creative box I placed around myself, I was able to create more without the pressure of how my feed would look. I can finally feel my art style growing, changing, and shifting into something that feels more like me. 🧡 A huge personal win for me this year was when I started making my own GIF stickers! I had no clue about what I was doing and I didn’t expect them to do as well as they have been (don’t worry, more are on the way soon). Thank you for sticking by my side and supporting my ever-evolving work—you are all the reason why I’m able to continue doing what I’m doing and I’m forever grateful. 💕 Looking forward to fun projects, new products, and more pictures of Scout in the new year! 🎊

Woke up to find this sweet surprise outside my window (along with its twin). Sometimes it’s nice to slow down, take in rare little moments like this, and put things into perspective. Full video for scale on my story! 🌈🌈✨

Thank you all for being so patient with me packing up your orders! I received more than I expected last weekend, so it’s taking me a little longer to get them shipped out 😅. I wouldn’t be able to run this shop and make fun things if it weren’t for your constant support, so thank you for shopping small this season! 🧡💕🧡💕🧡

Happy Small Business Saturday (+ Sunday)! When you #shopsmall, you support local economies. You support creative communities. You support real people. You support the makers, the artists, and the strong, independent shop owners who work their butts off to make some really freaking awesome, diverse things. Tagged above are some of my favorite small businesses! Who are some of your favorites? Tag them below so everyone can see!

This year I’m having a #shopsmall holiday sale and it’s the best deal I’ve ever offered! ✨☝🏻 I know that this time of year can be VERY overwhelming with all of the huge sales happening. If you’re ever not sure about where to start, I suggest shopping from small businesses.

If you aren’t giving gifts this year, please consider donating to charities or shelters. It’s the season of giving, so I ask that you consider doing at least one nice thing for someone in need.
