Sweet Stuff: Artifact Uprising

Dear Mumbles, if you’re reading this: stop. Thanks. Love you!

Friends, I just ordered some awesome prints and the wood block from Artifact Uprising for Mumbles for Father’s Day. (since the baby’s not here yet, the prints are of Baxter — who else?!)

I can’t wait to receive them. I think they’ll look great in his office and I also ordered some extra prints of some of my Instagram photos (flowers, details, cityscapes) to be used as postcards and to hang in my office at work.  I really like their suggestion to use prints as postcards or note cards too — consider my office a revolving art gallery now!

The other day I read this blog post about how Artifact Uprising was founded and was particularly taken by these wise words:

Katie’s sage advice to creatives:Creativity on command is the most difficult kind to summon, yet it’s the very art expected from the working creative. So put space between it. Get out there and live a life away from that art, find spaces that widen your world. Let creativity be the symptom of a life well-lived.

P.S. I also plan to buy the wooden box once baby is born and fill it with photos from my pregnancy and keep adding to it with books and prints. so sweet, right?  I’d love to have a little collection of wooden boxes on the shelf to go through. good stuff!
