I don’t know about you, but a tidy and organized workspace just makes my brain happy. I had let the garage get way out of control, so I took advantage of the extra day off to take the whole thing apart and put it back together. I thought about documenting it in my stories for you guys, but frankly I was just enjoying the process of being out there, music on, making the space a better place to be. So this might just look like another garage workshop to you, but to me it’s peace of mind.

After centuries of sluggish growth known as the Middle Ages, Europe finally emerged to the Renaissance in the 14th Century. The Renaissance bought with it rapid developments in art - but also in technology, knowledge, science and infrastructure.

Renaissance connected civilizations with the help of new trade routes resulting in exchange of culture, religion, and technology which gave the entire world access to rare raw materials and gemstones. During this period, precious raw material travelled to Europe from different parts of the world. These pieces were handed over to the artists who carved the raw stones into beautiful pieces of jewelry.

Renaissance was a time in history when all European countries engaged in trading styles of fashion and jewelry. With time, the designs developed as they moved across continents and different styles amalgamated.

Lovely handmade pentagon flowers necklace, inspired in the renaissance era.

This is my face and my newly sewn sweatshirt. My return to the studio was derailed by a broken wheel and now that the teeny (and necessary) replacement part is installed I can get back to clay work tomorrow. In the meantime, I sewed some shirts, because idle hands and all that.

Traveled into our Bay Area office this week for some quality time with my coworkers. I got a lot of questions about living in the mountains and why this town already feels so much like home. I thought about it a lot on my drive yesterday and I think I can finally put it simply: I just love the unpredictability of this place.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Each morning I wake up to a different scene - snow coating the trees, getting caught in summer thunderstorms as we kayak on the lake, ospreys dive-bombing fish we’re trying to catch and aspens changing color by the hour. There are wild lilac blooms and butterfly migrations, and an alpenglow that lasts long after the sun sets. Each day is full of so many fleeting moments of beauty that I’ll need a lifetime to capture them all in paint. So that’s what I’ll do, and I’ll do it for as long as I possibly can.

I’m going to leave this right here! So blocked and before I add the Pom to this beauty I really wanted you to see just how awesome the top of this hat is!! I recently completed a test knit for the lovely @brittyraeknits called Linger and this is the magic that happened next! .

Browns rich like chocolate 🤎
Dang this is the last muck dye from our last batch and holy heck those colors! I highly suggest playing with more natural colors in the muck for any dye artist that hasn't! We've never been disappointed 🌱

I just received this order of hand-dyed thread and Sashiko template from @thealese. It took a while to get here, but I am thinking it was worth the wait. The colours are lovely (better than the photograph) and I am excited to explore new ideas with these threads and template.

Part 4. Basically the end and the best part IMO. I use @walrusoil to finish my cutting boards. It is awesome seeing the transition from sanded walnut to finished walnut. This was a gift my daughter and I made for my wife before Christmas but she ended up seeing it before we were done. Kind of hard to hide this in the garage but we tried. haha Only thing I did after this was wipe off the wax.

It’s been so lovely to see so many new faces pop into my little feed here lately — for those of you that are new around here, hello & welcome! I’m Meggan Stefan — but you can just call me Meg.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A few things you might not know about me:
• I lived in Europe for five years & met my husband abroad. • I grew up just outside of New York City — but love the slow and simple of the countryside just as much.
• I always wanted to be an editor for the NYTimes or a lifestyle magazine & studied English at University.
• I took European Art History twice in school because I loved it so much and didn’t at all want to take the other option — statistics.
• I wish I could paint. But since I don’t really have that skill, I found comfort behind the lens and snapping photos.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tell me — what’s something I may not know about you? Would love to get to know you too.

Mental health lesson number 5 from a decade of learning about mental health.

This one is one of the most important things I’ve ever learned. When my mood disorder was at its worst and not properly treated, there were a lot of days I’d wake up, feel horrible, and write the day off as a bad one. I’d just assume I would be struggling the rest of the day if the morning was cloudy.

Now I know that circumstances and chemicals are quick to change, I know that a bad morning doesn’t mean a bad rest of the day.

There’s ALWAYS hope that it will get better. There’s always sunshine. Some of my worst morning have become my favorite days. ☀️ Hope you hang on to hope this morning. ❤️

I painted a leaf for the first time since October today with this humpback whale and I love it so much 🍁🐋 Like so many of us, I’ve just felt heartbroken lately thinking about the sheer amount of problems facing the natural world and how hopeless it all seems while also wanting to turn that feeling into something constructive. I’m still not totally sure how I’m going to do that but for now I’ll send some goodwill to accounts working hard to help our planet. Since this is an ocean-themed painting, I’ll tag a couple of relevant accounts below - (I unfortunately don’t know too many but would be happy to add more!) If it speaks to you, please give them a follow and support what they’re doing - and if you know of other accounts doing good work for the underwater worlds, please let me know! Have a lovely Sunday, folks 💙⁣

Couple of mugs from my own lil shelf. These two have minor flaws (on the other side) so I kept em for myself. I am not always good about using my own work because I am such a mercenary and will sell anything that isn’t nailed down when it’s showtime but having these two in rotation with my collection of work by other artists has been very informative and pleasurable.

I'm standing outside wearing a blanket like a cape (clipped closed with a hair clip) to take this pic. 🤣 I may be getting snow on my #foreveroctoberslouch, but I had to step outside to show you how beautifully this Spite Fluff yarn from @feistyfibres is working up! Just look at this! I can't stop staring. 👀 Will you be staying in and making something today? I'm definitely staying in PJs all day! ♥️ Forever October Slouch by @knitbrooks. Cute little mushroom stitch marker by @seniya_studio! .

Navy botanical makeup bags! I’m having a bit of a sale on Etsy at the moment as I have a lot of stock & not much storage! 😂 .
