I appreciate Instagram and Facebook because every artist has to admit that we can really showcase our work to the world. But unfortunately their are cons and social media can be daunting, exhausting and a little stressful. I remember I first started my Instagram and I was always looking for more likes and comments. And they were increasing and then decreasing to the point that I stopped paying attention. I started feeling bad because I saw people posting several times a day. And I’m like “how are they making art so fast?” Lol. But then I realized I’m just different and my pieces are cumbersome and I work at a different pace. Nothing wrong with that. I had to get ahold of myself and realize I am here to use the gifts God put inside of me so intensely and create beautiful artwork. Not to gain followers, not to be the fastest or best but just be “ME”. So I have to remind myself that this is about freedom and always finding ways to improve and grow as an artist. Not to copycat anyone else’s work...but for me to remain an original. Every one has their own individual gift from God. Finally, It’s also about loving and encouraging other people. I have met some of the best people here on Instagram who are talented beyond my imagination. Thank you everyone who chooses to stick around and support me and I will do the same for you. It is with great pleasure that I’ve met you all.

Do to a lack of Instagram savvy and some forgetfulness, we never posted the full HF video reel! So now, 12 months later, here it is. Enjoy! Film/Art Direction: @micahbartel (Scroll ➡️ to continue the video)
“We love what you’ve done with the place!” 🏡 Just got some in-home photos from some of our very first customers and sweetest friends. They decided to keep their bed frame raw and natural. This wood, wicker, and white pairing is on point. 👌
Another super-cool writing project just went live! 📐 Check out @jorybrigham_design's new workshop website, complete with dates for 2018 woodworking courses for three different modern heirlooms to build and bring home. 🔧 Jake did one of these in October and, every single day, I fawn over the gorgeous black walnut stool he built.🔨 Link in bio.
