happenings. [over here.]
goodness. kartwheels. blue skies. over here.
there has been an incredible amount of happy.nings over here. the weekend was filled up with discovering new ways of making this all work in the middle. i finally got clover out for a ride. the uneven sun on my arms proves it. the porch swing has a new glow and i might have snuck in to our neighbors yard and clipped a few sweet peas for little porch vases.
i am so excited to share a NEW publication – MABEL magazine! The first issue is out and my copy arrived yesterday. mabel is filled with happy images, deep articles and i am in the first issue! I was so excited when they let me know that i would be interviewed by jen everitt, about living as an artist in the midwest, or as i can it “the middle.”
i had never met jen, just via social media. so we chatted a bit and i invited her to come stay the weekend at my house to do the interiew and get some shots. but i course that wasn’t all! we took in the town where i live, we stopped for sushi, headed to the gallery for open music night and the next day we took off to indianapolis for a little shopping and breakfast at good morning mama’s. we chatted, laughed and at the end of it, the collaboration turned into new connection and a friendship. that is what i love about all of this. the connection. women supporting one another, working together and making BIG changes in the world. (that some days just gets to heavy and full of junk).
this issue is filled with creatives that i deeply admire. some i have followed for years and many who have taught me so many important lessons, not only about life, but about my creative path.
last summer was the summer of INDIE KINDRED and i am still basking in all the connection and goodness that came from that. recently jen lee released the indie kindred download. i love how others who maybe weren’t able to make the screenings that happened throughout the lands, to have the option to get that chance to finally view it, and maybe create their own screenings and see all the goodness. it is all inspiring! getting to be part of all this has truly changed the way i think (and do) things.
if you are looking for more creative gatherings, collaboration or just connection, check out these two bits of amazing fun! be willing to put yourself out there! create your own creative community. you can do it! REALLY! and if you are curious, just leave me a note, i would be happy to chat about it!
