To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of scraps. Im finding beauty and creativity in every pile. #createdaily #woodnerd #wood #womanwoodworker #wood_brain #woodscraps #ombrewood #woodworking

So almost a year ago I started to volunteer at the Natural History Museum in LA. I originally signed up to volunteer so that I could work in the butterfly Pavilion during the summer to learn more about raising butterflies. Unfortunately I signed up a few weeks to short, and missed the training and certification needed to work the Pavilion.... Patience, perseverance and a few other certifications later, the time has finally come.... I received the email to sign up for the butterfly certification and Pavilion training! Sometimes things you want don’t always happen when you want them to. Have patience and gratitude that it’s working it’s way to you! . . . #butterflynerd #butterfliesofinstagram #butterflyeffect #naturalhistorymuseum #volunteer #butterflypavilion #goalgetter #patience #personalgrowth #lovelife #monarchbutterfly #monarch #raisebutterflies #fly #spreadyourwings #goals #believeinyourself #behappyeveryday #behappy #grow #build #create #love The creation of a butterfly doesn’t happen over night.

The other day I was asked what I’ve done to better the world.....I felt stump being asked this question and almost a little discourage because I couldn’t think of anything, I had done that was changing the world for the better. My long pause to answer and stressed face indicated that I couldn’t think of anything, which didn’t feel good. That’s when @nobadtides jumped in and reminded me of a few cool things that I have done. Ive successfully raising over 50 butterflies from egg, and then I released them into the world to spread they’re joy to others. It maybe a small contribution to the world but it brings me so much happiness. When ever I see a butterfly flutter by, I wonder if it’s one I raised, coming back to visit. Life and the world are pretty amazing, sometimes I need a little reminder of what I add to it. 📷: @nobadtides . . . #lovelife #lovetheearth #lifesamazing #lovewhatyoudo #butterflynerd #happy #lookup #smile #smileonlife #behappy #createbeauty #wood_brain #butterfly #orange #loveeverything #lookclose #motivation #passion #wisdom #freedom

A labor of love is exalted because it provides joy and self expression to those who perform it. I truly love creating with my hands. I love envisioning and seeing a piece of art come to life. This was a fun one. #woodnerd #wood #woodworking #woodportrait #womanwoodworker #woodface #woodlove #mosaic #woodmosaic #woodveneer #exoticwood #handcrafted #ombrewood #Rottweiler #woodworker #laboroflove #lovewhatido #lovewhatyoudo #lovelife #create #buildwithyourhands #woodgrain #wood_brain

Choosing a wood type to work with, is like choose a paint color to an artist.... I feel I need them all to create with, and can never choose just one... #woodnerd #woodworking #woodveneer #womanwoodworker #wood #ombrewood #woodlove #rainbow #notahandmodel #lovewhatido #lovelife #ombre

Have you ever wanted to attend something so badly you could already image yourself there. How did you express your interest? Did you do something bold in order to attend? I’m really big on manifesting your destiny, seeing your self in the future self, however I’m also big on, showing up and expressing my interest and intent for what I want out of life. . . . I’ve wanted to attend Yeah Field Trip for some time now. So I reached out to them via email last year, but then I thought to myself how many emails they must receive expressing interest and desire in attending their amazing event. 🤔 so I thought how could I show my over the moon excitement to attend, how could I show them I’m not just your average joe (Average-Jane in my case) how could I show them I was serious in attending....So of course it only came natural to create something out of wood, and show my passion and dedication for what I love to do, ...Work with my hands. . . Now, for the good part!.... I’m beyond thrilled to say I’ll be attending this years YFT! ... and even more exciting, they have graciously awarded me a limited amount of scholarships tickets to offer to my social network.... you guys... my IG Friends!!! If your not yet familiar with @yeahfieldtrip I highly recommended you check them out, look at they’re amazing Interactive website, read more and then DM me if your interested in attending. Let’s be bunk mates! #joinme #YFT #woodnerd #wooddream #womanwoodworker #wood #setgoals #crushthem #followyourdream #lovelife

Having the right tool for the right job is key. You could even say the same for having the right teacher or mentor for the right job. I’m a firm believer in the continuation of learning and growth. Having the right teacher or mentor at the right time in my life, has been my key to success. Everyday I challenge myself to be a stronger, smarter builder and creator. I want to inspire others to continue to challenge themselves as well. Time to set goals and crush them, then repeat. Who inspires you to be a better you? #mentor #leaders #teachers #toolsforsuccess #woodnerd #womanwoodworker #wood_brain #success #files #woodworking #goals #crushgoals #inspire #create

This rainy weather is making me research warmer destinations to travel to soon... Morocco has always been on my list, Marrakech, Safi, Agadir, are all places I checked out today... I may or may not have just booked a trip. 📷: @justinablakeney #stokedfor2018 #morocco #ihaveathingwithfloors #followyourheart #followtheflow

I want to take a moment to just be real..... I love what I do, I love being a woodworker, I love being a creator with my hands. But sometimes I doubt my art, is worth or it’s quality. I look at my worn, beaten and cracked hands and wonder if it’s worth it. I look at all the other amazing woodworkers create such amazing art, and wonder if I’m of value to the world. Then I remind myself how far I’ve come, what I’ve learned, what I’ve built, the skills I’ve collected and this fuels me to continue on. Being an entrepreneur and business owner is something you have to strive to be better at and learn from each day. I’m creating a life I don’t need a vacation from and if that means rough hands and hours on end in the workshop, so be it! I want to be known for my hustle, dive, and my art and I’m proud to say it. #lovethehustle #lovewhatyoudo #dontbesohardonyourself #youramazing #createbeauty #createeveryday #create #lovelife #beingreal #womanwoodworker #entrepreneur #entrepreneurlife #beyourselfalways #bereal

Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress, Working hard for something we love is called passion. Focus more on what your passionate for rather than what stresses you. #findyourpassion #lovelife #womanwoodworker #wood #handcrafted #laboroflove #workhard #loveyourwork #handsandhustle #miniplanner #woodworking #woodlove #wood_brain #woodcardcase #cardcase #handmade

The question is not how people see you, But the question is how do you see yourself. I see myself doing BIG and bright things, and I won’t stop until I get there...and even then I won’t quit, I’ll continue to challenge myself to more. #cantstopwontstop #lovethehustle #woodnerd #womanwoodworker #wood #portrait #woodportrait #woodart #woodworking #wood_brain #handcut #handmade #mosaic #woodmosaic #woodlove #lovewhatyoudo #lovewhatido

I use to really look forward to colder weather and staying inside to see and watch holiday movies, this year the weather seems more like summer all year round... which didn’t make for much sewing this year... it was cool however to stumble across these hand embroidered wood grain stocks I did a few years back, to put me more in the holiday spirit. I’m looking forward to spending Christmas this year in Tahoe, which will be a nice change of weather. #woodnerd #stockings #woodgrain #embroidery #handmade #holidays #handsewn #sewing #coldweather #wood_brain #summeryearround #wood #womanwoodworker

I love being able to share my knowledge and joy of working with your hands. It makes me so happy to see people get they’re hands dirty and create. I’m grateful the universe connects me with great people to work with, and I’m thankful the universe brought this amazing sole into my life to share her knowledge and skills with me. Today @libbycrow got her hands dirty and built a beautiful bench that she’s going to gift to a friend. It turned out beautiful! Swipe through to check out the photos of her awesome hand made bench.

I almost spaced on my wood grain stockings I made last year, I was stoked to find them while unpacking my holiday supplies for orders. These were definitely a labor of love, I hand embroidered the wood graining in a fun ombré color scheme. Now I just need a cool fireplace to get some rad photos of them hanging on. Anyone out there with a rad fireplace? . . @rachelmaefurman @timberandtorch @parachutehome #woodnerd #woodgrain #handmade #woodstockings #wood #womanwoodworker #embroidery #handsewn #stocking #stockings #ombre #lovewhatido #lovelife #color
