I have steadily been working away this week for an upcoming art show 🌟 Spent a good amount of time on one piece this morning but didn’t end up liking it. Then I painted this lady in half the amount of time 🤷‍♀️ Liked her much more! 😆🙌 I think I need to spend more time doing warm up sketches before I get going- to get loose and work out the kinks before I dive into a bigger piece 👌 Do you usually do warm up sketches or just dive in?? • (lady is 16x20 inches on paper) ✨🌸

I was honored when my friend asked me to sketch her home for an anniversary gift! I grew up in St. Paul, MN and there is something quintessentially St. Paul about this house. Feels like home 🥰

After graduating, my husband and I owed more than $220,000 in student loan debt. That reality was crushing. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We had good jobs, but our student loan payments were the size of a mortgage and there was no end in sight.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I was sick of seeing our hard-earned money leave just as fast as it came in, with nothing left over to do what we love. So when I started my side hustle I knew it had to NOT be a few things...⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Time consuming, because I was already working 60+ hours a week.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Pay less than $100 an hour because it would take years to pay off debt and see results.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
An MLM that would have me bugging my friends and family all the time.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Make me go somewhere to work, I needed the freedom to do it from anywhere.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I'm not special. The only difference between you and me is that I took the leap and started -- not letting fear of failure or what other people might think to stand in my way. And now is your chance. Sign up for one of three free live trainings and I know you’ll be ready to change your story. Hit the link in my bio to sign up. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Have you ever started a side hustle that didn’t work?⁠⠀

🎡Eu nunca imaginei onde estaria nessa fase da minha vida. Eu sempre sonhei em ser Livre, em viver um grande amor, em ver minha mãe Feliz e com saúde. Só nunca me imaginei Cozinheira, empreendedora UaU como a vida da voltas. Uma nova fase se inicia, acabou o ciclo de emigrante. Foram tantas lições que hoje, eu consigo ver tudo com os pés no chão, o que me demorou tempo, talvez demais, mas tudo vale a pena quando a alma não è pequena. Até frases clichês fazem sentido quando se encherga poesia em tudo que se vive. Avante, Bem vindo novo ano, seja gentil. 💕🦩

On site at one of Astrid’s many art installations, wanting to understand more about her design process...⁣

Me: How did you decide to organize them?⁣
Astrid: I just put them on the wall.⁣

Me: How did you decide to make that many big ones and small ones?⁣
A: I folded big paper, I cutted it out. And then I folded it like this (demonstrating), and cut a whole in the bottom, and then I cut this design on it. And then for the little ones, I did the same thing.⁣

Me: What did you learn?⁣
A: How to fix ripped ones.⁣

Me: What’s your favorite thing about this art installation?⁣
A: Cutting. Well, everything.⁣

Me: What will you make next?⁣
A: I don’t know.⁣

✨Pearls pearls baby ✨🤩 I just finished making one of the pearly hearts earrings by twisting, hammering and looping pearls one by one and when I saw this picture by @betina_goldstein Ice ice baby song played in my head. Except, changed the “Ice ice” part to “ pearls pearls” because that is all I can think about after looping 21 pearls 😂.
.
I am planing to list them tomorrow sometime in the afternoon 🧡🙌 Stay tuned! 😊

I did this drawing of my beautiful kitten Petunia a month or two ago, and then abandoned it because I didn’t think it looked enough like her. But I just came across it again and now I have no idea why I didn’t like it before! Anyone else here a certified cat lover?! 😻 #hannahkaplanart

Are you a planner or an impulse maker?

I've been planning too much lately. I counted 16 projects planned. It's putting to much pressure on me.

I want to have room for impulse makes like this one, room to change my mind, scrap and remake. I had a new idea and just had to start working on it right away. I've been so good at not planning it that I ran out of yarn and need to wait for more to continue though 🙈. But it felt so good to just go with that idea without having to finish other projects first.
I'm curious, do you plan your next projects or do you just go with what you want to make then and there?

Ps: 🎁 Have you entered the giveaway in my previous post?

Ayer fuimos a una cena familiar para saludar a una tía de mi esposo que es Francesa y andaba por acá, me contó desde tartas de cebolla con pasta de anchoas y aceitunas, de cómo es importantísimo dejar reducir las cebollas y hasta en qué momento exacto sacar un choux del horno. Pasamos por el feminismo francés, por qué hay tantas mujeres solas, por qué para cocinar debes oler muy bien y de los viajes que se da a cada rato con amigas y sola.

Las piedras y la magia de sus péndulos y cuarzos tomaron el lugar de la cocina, y ahora, en vez de pasearse por las recetas, pasea de pronto por sus historias recorriendo el Nilo o en la extravagancia de Madagascar paseando en una canoa de madera en medio de la penumbra de la noche, acompañada de largas algas que iluminan con sus iridiscencias al movimiento de los remos, algo sacado como de un cuento para después terminar en un festín de comida en medio de la nada, en el fin del mundo con desconocidos y velas en la mesa.

A pesar que como todo mundo carga su historia, me sorprendió un poco las ganas que tiene de seguir conociendo, viajando y probando, porque como dijo: hay que hacerlo sin miedo. La primera vez que la conocí me regaló este recetario de recetas típicas de la región de Niza, cuando vaya a hacer una receta de este libro pensaré en todo lo que me falta de ver, probar y cómo envejecer llena de colores e iridiscencias, porque mi felicidad, es mi responsabilidad.

I don't know about you, but in our world of 'instant', sometimes it's hard to just trust the process and enjoy the journey. Whatever creative things you are doing today, may you be able to trust the process, even if it's just a little.😀

Dear friends,
Are you a ‘use everything everyday’ person, or a ‘for good’ and ‘for everyday’ use person?

I followed in my Mother’s footsteps when I left home and had ‘everyday’ and ‘special occasions’ pieces. But somewhere along the way the line got blurred.
Now, our daily dinner plates and bowls are a mismatched stack of vintage pieces from the op-shop, with a plain white set for when we have visitors or need more plates, (though the kids seem to use them daily.) I don’t have good glassware. I use my ‘good’ handmade ceramics all the time, and I am slowly replacing my store brought pieces with handmade ones.
Another way to buy second hand, buy less and buy well. xx

I finally took my Christmas decorations down last night. And by ”I”, I really mean @mr.sweetredpoppy took them down while I was sleeping. 🤣😂 My house looks SO bare which means it's time to throw some Valentines Day decor up to compensate! 😍❤️💕 Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day?

Meet 'TRAVERSE', a one-of-a-kind commission ready to leave our studio for its forever home at @vuebroadbeach Commissioned by the visionary team of @thedrawingmill_interiors we responded to their brief to create a statement piece to be displayed in the lobby of the luxurious multi-residential beachside condo. Inspired by the contemporary and sophisticated coastal aesthetic of the building, we conceptualised an abstract design, unique in every way. As an evolution of previous work, 'TRAVERSE' is moody in nature exploring texture, movement, and tonality.
.
Behind each project, it's inevitable we undertake a journey both collectively as sisters and with 'the self'. As life can emulate a vast landscape, it is only in the challenging terrain do we evolve and transform. To ascend the ridges of discomfort and crawl amongst the crevices of uncertainty, we learn to navigate and take risks, growing in resilience. 'TRAVERSE' taught us that the path is non-linear, with one step forward and two steps back, or perhaps to the side.

Meet 'TRAVERSE', a one-of-a-kind commission ready to leave our studio for its forever home at @vuebroadbeach Commissioned by the visionary team of @thedrawingmill_interiors we responded to their brief to create a statement piece to be displayed in the lobby of the luxurious multi-residential beachside condo. Inspired by the contemporary and sophisticated coastal aesthetic of the building, we conceptualised an abstract design, unique in every way. As an evolution of previous work, 'TRAVERSE' is moody in nature exploring texture, movement, and tonality.

Behind each project, it's inevitable we undertake a journey both collectively as sisters and with 'the self'. As life can emulate a vast landscape, it is only in the challenging terrain do we evolve and transform. To ascend the ridges of discomfort and crawl amongst the crevices of uncertainty, we learn to navigate and take risks, growing in resilience. 'TRAVERSE' taught us that the path is non-linear, with one step forward and two steps back, or perhaps to the side. With each new day being an opportunity to weave your reality, we grow in courage to show up and face the unknown.
