Oh man! Does this week’s pairing not scream the glory of fall! It truly encapsulates not only the colors of this time of year, but also the feeling and the mood…the kind of quiet that usually starts to settle in right about now.

Happy Monday, friends!

Skein + Paint is a collaboration between two friends who share a love of color, texture, and art. Their idea was simple: that the crossing and mixing of various art forms would inspire something more. By using each other’s work as inspiration, they would stretch within their own work, gain insight into how others view that work, and inspire themselves and others toward future work. Creating in their respective mediums, each week one of them will have provided an image as a prompt and the other will have interpreted that prompt. Dana will be bringing images to life by hand with pencils, paints, pens, etc. Maegan will be working with yarn coupled with photography. The image that was the prompt will be featured on the left and the image that was the interpreted response will be on the right.

So much to love about this week’s pairing, there is!!! The colors…of course. But then there’s the feather and the pattern of Dana’s brushstrokes that make me think of migrating geese. I couldn’t love this more!

Happy Monday, friends! May it be a gentle one, welcoming you into this new week.

Things sure feel like fall now! These colors are so rich and warm…they make me want to bake a pumpkin pie and curl up with a good book.

Happy Monday, friends!

Happy October! A new month means a new Mama Mantra over at The Creative Mama. I may have mentioned before, but the mantras always come from something I am working on, working through, or seeing clearly for myself in any given time. It’s in that beautiful way that the mantras choose me. This month’s mantra is something that I have been seeing the manifestation of in really, incredibly profound ways as of late. I hope you enjoy…
