Evening, friends! Let me start by saying your support of and excitement for Emerson Industrial has been truly overwhelming. We are so unbelievably grateful for each of you, and everything you’ve done to help us keep pushing forward. The past few weeks/months have been a struggle to find a balance. Both my wife and I maintain full-time jobs, while I fill a new roll as Fire Captain while continuing to manage and coordinate our in-service training and physical readiness programs with the local fire department. We struggle to complete never-ending renovations to our house, volunteer for medical crews at road races and marathons, sit in executive boards for charity organizations... Time to relax and recharge, spend time with family, and do the things we love doing. Emerson Industrial began as a hobby, quickly grew into a passion, and ballooned to a full-time job just as fast. Our content has dropped off the last few weeks, as I’ve found it incredibly difficult to find time amongst all our obligations to fit it in. For better or worse, this will be the new face of Emerson Industrial. We will always be here, we will keep creating and following our passion, we will keep sharing unique handcrafted industrial decor and vintage rebuilds, we will keep working with some truly incredible people on some amazing commissioned projects, we’ll keep up the markets... we’ll keep doing everything you’ve come to love about Emerson Industrial, but our social media content will become more selective and consist of fewer posts each week. I feel it’s important to find that renewed balance to ensure this passion does not become a hassle, and eventually something I resent. For those that looked forward to our daily updates, we truly and sincerely apologize. You can rest assured, however, that what you do get from Emerson Industrial will be top quality content, and we think you’ll find it’s worth the follow 😉
From all of us here at Emerson Industrial, we truly and genuinely appreciate each and every one of you, all you’ve done for us so far, and the incredible support we continue to receive as we keep moving forward. .
Here’s to always keeping projects on the workbench 🍻 🥂

crafty pardners forever. .
we were going to the calgary stampede and we don’t really look like cowgirls. any excuse to craft, right? 👍🏻 so anika drew me a cowgirl hat and we did a bit of screen printing + sewing. and now we’ve got some bandanas that may only be worn once every year. 😉 .
(you can tell that i am not a real cowgirl because i put my bandana on so the hats are upside down. 🤦🏼♀️)
i just wasn’t feeling it today. it took me an hour this afternoon to convince myself to create something. anything. with no end product in mind. because that is the most freeing for me. and my cortisol levels. .
i decided to begin the process of learning how to screen print with drawing fluid. something that has been on my list for too long. and i just experimented for the fun of it. .
do you ever force yourself to create? 🙋🏼♀️
Beyond excited to be a part of another incredible night market at Southcentre Mall. Stop in and say 👋 and see all the other amazing vendors, while grabbing some grub at the food trucks! Thanks @thecuratedshop and we’ll see you all soon!! @southcentremall #yyc#yyccrafts#handmadevendor#growthchartrulers#homedecor
