#crepepaper

What’s the line between acknowledging the turmoil in the world and depriving yourself of joy? There’s a sweet spot somewhere that balances seeing harsh truths about our world, facing that with equanimity, trying hard to change it, and also being a joyful person.
I’m trying to find that place because self-flagellation helps no one. I see folks who contribute to activist causes feeling guilty for having personal moments of happiness or comfort. But the point of fighting for equality and justice is to ensure everyone is allowed those moments, and frequently. Neglecting to give yourself those moments is a road that leads straight to emotional burnout.
I’m interested to hear other people’s thoughts on this, because I think it’s not easy to reconcile all these factors.
(this train of thought was inspired by a post by @harikondabolu on the same topic)

When your flowers meet your IG friend IRL before you're able to ☹️😉 Thank you @thegreybirch_ for this pretty lil photo! ...aaand have you checked out this incredibly sweet and generous ladies jewelry?! Do it, do it. ✨ @thegreybirch_ ✨ My quartz necklace never leaves my neck (even though I know the instructions tell me it should #badlistener 🤷🏼‍♀️) #treatyoself #youdeserveit

Playing with my flowers and still making many many more! I can see this as a beautiful bride bouquet!
. 🌸💕🌿💕🌺
Just a heads up, I will be on a trip to Austin, Texas, starting from Tuesday, September 26 to October 2nd and then I'm taking a fun vacation from October 6 to 15 to Copenhagen and Stockholm. I will be closing my shop during those times. If you would like a kit or papers, let me know and I will get them out to you before I leave or in between my trips. . 🕍❤️🏫
Also, if you have any fun tips or places I should go and eat, please let me know! Also I'm super excited to eat at #NomaUnderTheBridge I have seen so many wonderful photos and interviews about Noma and I can't wait to experience it for myself. .

Grooming the next generation of Handmade Nation.... Ellie and I made a crown of PAPER flowers for her for our wedding. She loved it!! And the best part is she is still loving it!! Since then, she has been asking me to make more crowns. She's said to me, "I want to make them and sell them at art fairs and stuff, you know, like you do with your artwork." 😍 ....ahhh.... How do you say no to that?
Just love that she wants to learn to make things! Thank you to @thelovelyave, @thecraftersbox , and now @tiffanieturner (new paper flowers book) for your inspiration, creative spirit and for sharing your talents with us!
Ellie made her first crown last night and asked to wear it to school today to check out its durability... she said if it withstands hurricane winds "it's good". 😂 She's already picked at least a dozen more flowers she wants to learn to make. ....perhaps she'll be taking orders for the holidays! 😊. #havebrusheswilltravel #handmadenation #handmade #paperflowers #floralcrown #marthasvineyard #travelingartist #lovewhatyoudo #lovewhereyoulive #crepepaper #crepepaperflowers #artist #create #explore #love #inspire #oakbluffs #flowercrown #flowers

Handcrafted paper flowers: Heliconia Rostrata...a marvelous creation in nature with its very cunning twists and turns.

This version of paper flower is approximately 25 inches in height and 6 inches in width and has 21 florets 🌸🌸🌸 Some facts that may interest you on this flower:

This flower is also known as hanging lobster claw or false bird of paradise. Heliconias are known to those who grow them as a host flower to many birds, especially the hummingbird.
🙂🙂🙂 Enjoy the pics and have a nice day you all...🌹 #paperflowers #passionflower #crepepaperflowers #crepepaper 👉🏻My page: https://m.facebook.com/BudzENBloomz/

"You simply have to put one foot in front of the other and keep going. Put blinders on and plow ahead." -George Lucas

Yup pretty much needed to hear that George. 😆 If you don't see me for a bit just know that I am hitting the studio hard and cranking out these last few weddings of the season. I just realized I have gone through 800 stems in less than 2 weeks! 😳 Wwhaaatt!?
