Cozy christmasy time! I made a garland and this wreath with clippings from mom’s cedar trees and Lindsay and Joel’s yard — that was fun! (And trickier than I expected!) I love cedar so much ♥️🌲♥️ does anyone know what the energetic/spirit elements of cedar are??
Ohhhhh how I love thee, Tooty Tuffins, Kitteh of Squish, Little Jaida kitty cat gets a squeeze ❤️
Ahh!! A beautiful closing day today! Waiting to hand off the keys ~ the most exciting part 😍 Especially when one of your clients is a close friend of over 14 years!! ❤️🏡❤️ I love this part!
Oh Nightshift Shawlie, you are so beautiful ... to meeeeee... Got some weekend knitting in, what a fabulous practice in patience! I was doing metta meditation with each stitch for a bit there, but got distracted somewhere along the way...never too late to return to meditation though! This is “kind of” halfway done, but not really b/c she keeps GROWING! One stitch wider, every other row. Hope I can finish in time to actually wear this Fall 😍 🍁 🍂 🌾 🍄 #nightshiftshawl @dreareneeknits @starlightknittingsociety @twistedyarnshop #portland #knitting #spincycleyarns @brooklyntweed @spincycle_yarns #patience #practice #metta #pdxknitters
Ahh life is rough, workin in the woods!! Got to go for a little hike yesterday in the beauty of fall to explore land with my client and her sweet doggie friend ❤️ Searching for the perfect site to create home among nature and grow community away from the city. I love this vision and am excited to be a helper in making it happen! 😍🌲🌲🌲🏡🌲🌲🏡🌲🌲🌲🏡🌲🌲🏡🌲🏡🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🏡🌲🌲🌲🏡🌲🏡🌲🌲🌲 I definitely have the dream of living closer in nature too, do you? ✨ ❤️ 🌲 🏡🌲❤️✨ #takemetomypeople #thevillage #vision #backtonature #breathe #sinkin #explore #pachamama #create #community #slowdown #notyourtypicalrealtor #sandyriver #oregon #portland #corbett #sandy #oregonrealestate #pdxrealtor #visionofhome #reality
Current progress on my #nightshiftshawl by @dreareneeknits ~ definitely one of the most addictive projects I’ve dabbled in! I wish I was a faster knitter, I just want to get to ALL THE COLORS NOW!! First timer experiments with @spincycle_yarns, @brooklyntweed and two magical skeins from my auntie’s gift stash @nordquist_studio. This is the fall forest stage ~ I hope for phase of stone, earth, water and fire too... maybe in that order?? But today’s goal is to put it down and go OUTSIDE to play in between tasks of actual work...some non-doing between the doing 😉@thatgoddesslife I’ll see you tomorrow little shawlie ❤️ #knitting #somewhataddicted #thereareworsethings 😜 Oh and special shout out to the incredibly helpful folks at @twistedyarnshop and @starlightknittingsociety!! These people are the best!
