Matching kids purse success! These beautiful bags are going to two little girls who I hope to meet one day. They are the daughters of a friend from high school and I'm pretty sure two of the cutest kids in all of Minnesota. Their grandma ordered these bags plus two Halloween bags that I'll show off later today! 😍😍😍 . . . . . . . . . . . . #beyondbeautifulbycassie #uniquelikeyou #motivation #livingmybestlife #custommade #tiedye #purse #kidspurse #bagsforkids #bagdesigner #liveyourbestlife #livelifehappy #neverstopdreaming #makestuff #makethings #repurposed #upcycledfabric #upcycling #upcycle #madeinamerica #madeintheusa #ethicalfashion #ethicallymade #shopsmallbusiness #girlboss #bossbabe

So I just found out that I really love making these macreme plant hangers! It's so fun to explore a new craft!! do you think people would pay money for these? Or should I just fill my own house with them, like a spider web?! #macreme #macremeplanthanger #makethings #crafty

Trying to keep a sense of humor to get through bad #chronicpain flare ups has led to some...interesting doodle interpretations of why my hip is in so much burning pain. 🤷🏽‍♀️ How do you cope? . . . #labraltear #labraltearrecovery #hippain #chronicpainwarrior #chronicpainawareness #doodle #doodles #draw #spoonie #spoonielife #spoonies #chronicpainawareness #labrumtear #chronichippain #themighty #designer #designgram #designs #makethings #distraction #graduatestudent at Somerville, Massachusetts

So the other day I tried to paint clouds and they were atrocious. So I spent today practicing them and feel like 1% better than before. Why do I feel the need to master everything immediately? 🙄 needless to say this is a work in progress! But I’m thankful for a rainy evening and for fresh paints and that it’s almost spooky season. Irrelevant but it’s on my mind 🎃 👻 🧛🏼‍♀️🧙🏼‍♀️ at Montgomery, Texas

Found a new little corner in the neighborhood and a sweet shop. Welcome to the neighborhood. Love small, local mom and pops just doing their thing.

A very great couple asked me to make them and their pals some special shirts to wear to pabstolutely this year and I loved the idea so here are the results. A left chest and full back print, navy ink on natural shirts. This drunk dead spaceman will be up in my shop as a full front print soon. Thanks for keeping me busy.

Thanks to Brenna @fetchingminx for booking me a laser cutting class. It's the first thing to keep my mind fully present in months and I really needed that. It was also a good feeling to be back around other makers-of-things. I made Ellen a tag to go with her new collar. #traumarecovery #makethings #artsaveslives

I give you my first and last #bushcraft kit I made for myself. Growing up in South Africa as a child I really enjoyed venturing off into the wilderness and exploring nature. As much as I'd like to do the same here, life has a tendency to take away from the finer things. Nevertheless I try to make time when I can to explore, figured might as well have the basic gear. In the last couple of years I've discovered the art of bushcraft which ties into what I love to do .... making stuff. Hence why I made the knife/axe combo, smithed the knife myself and the sheaths for both. The axe is a hawk skull and the knife is inspired by a fish, figured it was suiting. Theres elements of viking design.... been watching to much #vikings lol I have a fascination with how things use to be and how they were made, from raw material to a blade from killing an animal to how every part of it was used to make something and survive. I feel if you have to kill to survive nothing sould go to waste, it died so you can live we forget to respect the natural order of things and we take it for granted in our modern society. #bushcraft #knife #axe #respect #survival #nature #leather #leatherwork #sheath #axesheath #knifesheath #camping #bushcraftknife #bushcraftgear #outdoors #outback #vikings #beardedaxe #weapons #axethrowing #leathersmith #blacksmith #makethings #inspired #inspiredbynature #wildlife #wilderness #customknife #customade

You can use neurographics to harmonize parts of your body! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I printed the picture of a spine onto paper, pasted it in my journal and neurographized it... the other day the tension in my neck was literally gone! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Because I can´t recognize any part of the original print of the spine in my drawing, I printed the same spine to a transparency, so I can overlay the spine with my drawing and find out which color and which circle is located in which area of the spine.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👁 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #neurographik #neuroart #neuroartist #draw #drawingsolutions #draweveryday #creativity #create #createeveryday #creativelife #kreativ #artist #inspiration #makethings #becreative #claudiaschramm #sketch #sketchbook #sketchbookpractice #skizze #skizzieren #skizzenbuch #neurosketch #neurosketching #healing #bodyimage #heal #healyourself #newmedicine #bodyhealing

This is by far one of the prettiest bags I've made. Measuring 17x13x4 with 5 pockets inside, there's tons of room for storage in this gorgeous bag! This one is sold, but I can make you your own lotus print bag!

Introducing the 4" 4 digit, 7 segment countdown timer. Powered by Arduino and a tangle of jumper wires. But it's working and that's what matters. Full code and schematics will be on Github later. #arduino #escaperoom #makethings

I'm working on a tote and none of the lining colors that I had made sense. White was too bright. Purple was too dark. Muslin was too brown. Nothing was right! So I went to the fabric store and found this PERFECT option. The dots are the lightest purple you've ever seen, but give the fabric the perfect amount of color. I think the final product is gonna be one of the best I've made yet! . . . . . . . . . . . . #beyondbeautifulbycassie #uniquelikeyou #motivation #livingmybestlife #custommade #totebag #bagdesigner #liveyourbestlife #livelifehappy #neverstopdreaming #makestuff #makethings #repurposed #upcycledfabric #upcycling #upcycle #madeinamerica #madeintheusa #ethicalfashion #ethicallymade #shopsmallbusiness #girlboss #bossbabe

You voted option b) off to granny's house. It's a still moonlit night and, due to complications with the Resource Management Act, Granny's house sits alone, and in a dark forest, in the middle of Auckland. Granny's door is ajar and once in, you can see her silhouetted on the bed. "Why Granny are you not feeling well?" you exclaim. "Come closer," she wheezes. "But Granny, what big eyes you have!" says little Timmy. "And what big hairy ears!" says your other child (the TV watcher). It's obvious to all of us that this is in fact the bad wolf from Little Red riding hood! Vaguely you worry about your environmental obligations. Should you phone Greenpeace or the SPCA or is it only nice wolves you need to worry about? You clutch your handbag closer glaring at the furry fiend - it's sniffing alerts you to the fact that it's detected your emergency hidden chocolate stash - you need to act before it's too late! "Don't worry Mum!" shouts Timmy, "I've got this." He leans over and pulls out his SharperThinker Bluetooth speaker, connects his phone, and starts breaking to some beats. Sure enough, there is a snort from the wolfish snout: "Call THAT a coindrop?" Timmy looks him in the eye: "Think you can do it better - I challenge you to a dance battle!" "Oh hoorah Timmy!" You applaud as the wolf is inevitably tied up in a knot. "And done with no animal cruelty," you add conscientiously. Whew! Everyone is tired now. Do you dare stay at Grandma's? a) Yes. b) No.

Fireplace transformation! This double sided fireplace was one of my favorites to-date. For this (amazing) client, we kept the gas firebox but replaced the builder grade veneers with traditional brick hearths and custom white oak mantles. . My favorite part of these beauties are the inlays made by the wonderful @elemental_arthouse. . As always, thank you to the great @whatwoodjesusdo @dreadcountryart for their big help too! . Big thanks also to the amazing @josephgbradshaw for bringing out beauty in this piece with his amazing work! 📸📸 . #finishcarpenter #carpenrty #craftsman #fireplace #mantle #finehomebuilding #whiteoak #generalcontractor #luxuryhomes #builder #customhomes #buildstuff #makethings #nashville at Nashville, Tennessee

Happy Raksha Bandhan to all my brothers near and far and to everyone celebrating. May your wrists be decorated with itchy threads, sugar levels hit near diabetic levels (for today) and your wallets be that little bit lighter 😉 I love you • • • #rakshabandhan #rakhri #brotherandsister #siblinglove #rakhricelebrations #brotherlove #love #imthebestsister #handlettering #lettering #stippling #3dlettering #dropshadow #leicestermaker #leicesterartist #makethings #maker #drawthings #letterer #practicemakesperfect #letteringjourney #lefthanded #lefty #bftype #goodtype #handmadefont

“I want to have a creative home!”, I said. “I want our kids to make things all over the place and use their imaginations and create.”, I said. “Let’s have supplies and materials all ready for them so they can be makers!”, I said. 🤩 After taking a good portion of my day earlier in the week to tidy up the garage, I walk out to this. 😐 That white stuff is scattered near and far all over the garage. “I’ll keep it all on the blanket, Mama!”, he promised. 😳 He’s making airplane wings from styrofoam. And I’m glad. And I’m tickled he took the bait. And I’m impressed with the progress. But this kind of life is A MESS. 🥴 #letthemplay #create #makethings #creativity #art #airplanes #childhood #motherhood #parenting
