Thank you for bringing your knowledge and advice, @signetsealed @texstyleshop @ellajude and @fallingintoplacecandles ! And what a great turnout! Thank you to everyone who came. I'm continuously in awe of our growing creative community here in Memphis. #wearethecreativeeconomy #tuesdaystogether #tuesdaystogethermemphis #creativeworksmemphis #memphismakers #memphisartist #marketbooth #positivelycreative #positivelycreativepodcast

Ready for ya! Come hang out at High Cotton Brewery from 1-5 today to drink good beer, hear jazz music, and shop local! #sundayfundayartshow#positivelycreative

The best thing we can do as women is support each other on the journey to success. We will all fail at times along the way but we will also make huge strides that push us to the next level. I think it's important to share not only stories about our successes but also about how we learned from our failures. Can't wait to listen to these amazing women's stories! Thank you to @dorothyart for understanding the importance of creating content to inspire all of us!

Just when I stepped my game up, more opportunities revealed itself. Let's do this! I don't fear success, I look back at everything I've been through and I know It's molded me for what's ahead. #WinnersMentality #PositivelyCreative

Hey @positivelycreativepodcast, here's some positive creativity--a watercolor for my dear friend @mkcarnesy who has taught me 98% of what I know about gardening, is one of like 4 women I know who can/want to talk about Hegel & other nerdy philosophy stuff, and wears cool clothes literally any time of day or night. And picks vegetables right out of the ground and gives them to me. πŸŽ¨πŸŒ±πŸ‘“ #positivelycreative.

"And pretty maids all in a row..." Lotsa new gals drying away in the studio today. Loooving my new wire system- getting pieces off the table and high on the walls away from a certain little person's curious hands. πŸ˜‰

Thank you for the introduction @hauswerk! Good reminder to #strutyourstuff this weekend! ❀️ #doyourthing ・・・
This week on Haus Werk's Weekly Palette 🎨:
We are highlighting @ande.art!
Allison is an abstract expressionist who uses acrylics and mixed media to create vibrant pieces that capture life's everyday beauty! She sees every blank canvas as an opportunity to emphasize the art found in God's natural creation! Come fall in love with these whimsical, colorful paintings at The Haus! #hauswerkweeklypalette #showyourwork #localartistsupport #originalart #homeinteriors #interiordesign

Recently as a guest on @positivelycreativepodcast with @dorothyart, I talked all things design, all things bissnas, and gushed about @trelloapp when Dorothy asked what my fave organizational tool is.

#WeAreTheCreativeEconomy Hey y'all! I'm Dorothy, a mother, wife, artist, podcast host, and a creative community leader.

So today @risingtidesociety and @honeybook encouraged us to share what it means to be creative. Being creative has always been at the heart of my life, all 30 years. Without being able to express myself creatively, I am not whole. I think this notion really smacked me in the face while on maternity leave. I wasn't physically creating artwork, creative conversations, community and my centered self really took a toll. Being creative to me means actively pursuing a passion, finding a void and filling it through making. It really hit me that one day that if I wasn't making I wasn't filling that creativity that needed life. I'm so glad I listened to my intuition.

What makes you creative? Everyone has their thing. Whether it's cooking, being crazy organized, putting together an outfit, decorating your home, writing, making music...what's your thing? Share your story below or in another post of your own! #wearethecreativeeconomy

In LOVE with the way this painting looks on the wall at @chestnuthall ❀️ The brown really works as a gorgeous backdrop to set off the colors in this piece....it could go on just about any color wall. If you haven't visited Chestnut Hall lately you're really missing out. 😍 #katietoombsart #memphisinteriors #interiordesign .

Hey y'all! Happy weekend! Look what came in the mail this week! A mailer from @memphiscollegeofart highlighting the new Fashion Design Certificate Program in partnership with @memphisfashiondesign ! This is what @dorothyart and @abselzphil talk about on this week's episode of the #positivelycreativepodcast. This is just one of the many exciting things that Abby has brought to life for our creative community here in Memphis!

A vibrant and fun 6x6 green heron painting is my fun for this morning. Hope you have a great day! #earlybirdpainting #birdsofinstagram #oilcolorxo

So which six of these paintings do you think I should take to @myauntdebbie for the grand opening of her fabulous new shop? #myauntdebbie #oilcolorxo #somanychoices

This went from just prepping the canvas to under-painting this fellow and his #runningbuddy-I'll press on and see where this goes! 'And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith' Hebrews 12:1-2 #creativeprocess #perserverence #dowhatmakesyoursoulhappy #brightfuture

This part of jewelry making isn't so Instagram worthy but when I tell people I'm in the pickling jewelry stage, typically I see confused faces. So for today's #nowyouknow we have jewelry pickle. In simple terms, after firing metal with a torch it needs to be cleaned off. Enter pickle. Pickle removes any oxidation/flux/grossness that occurs during the heat process. Heat up the pickle solution in a crock pot, drop in jewels, and ta da! your jewelry is ready to be polished. Typically jewelry pickle is extremely toxic and smells like death. I knew I didn't want that in my home studio. Thankfully I found a safe alternative from Rio Grande called PickleIt that is made from food grade materials and has no toxic smell. It takes a bit longer for my pieces to clean but I'm happy to make that sacrifice for my health + the environment around me.

Walk those halls my dear. Stare, wonder, Believe. Your Great Grandmother told me " Anybody can learn to draw. " Your Grandmother told me " You can be anything you want to be." Believe them my child and don't second guess yourself. That is something your Mother has done. She is finally waking up.

A sweet little landscape inspired from my vacation @rehoboth_beach_de #funinthesun #morningslikethese #beachscape #oilcolorxo

Oh how I love a fresh white canvas! I've been enjoying painting larger, as scary as it is...the best part is seeing what happens next...#makesmesmile #freshcanvas #oilcolorxo

The sky's the limit! This painting is 16x16 on cradled board. I am really loving larger canvases. Scary but fun! #morningslikethese #oilcolorxo #landscapepainting

I found some happy friends in my marks this weekend...hope this week finds you happy too 🎢 #mondaymotivation #hearthemusic #musicconnects

I am back from vacation and so happy to have my paintbrush back in hand. It was a wonderful break from life but I missed my painting time every morning. Diving back in is always a little bit scary for me. Not letting that little voice in my head tell me I've forgotten everything I've learned in my week away. So my first painting is a fun one I've done before which takes away some of the pressure. Smart, right? This sweet 6" square painting is on a 1 1/2" raised panel. I'm so happy to be back at the easel! #earlybirdpainting #oilcolorxo #birdsofinstagram
