Not going to lie -- getting the mail is always a fun task for me. Probably a combination of having bills paid off before they arrive at my door, traveling wraps and fun purchases. Today Moons came home from visiting friends and three (!!) new centerpieces arrived for my necklace from @ilanaseashore -- that's certainly what I would call a good mail day 💓
This is my "fed is best" journey in jewelry form. I love that this piece has a story and every component is meaningful. I am overjoyed that I did not give up one drop of milk to have this memento made. @ilanaseashore delivered a perfect custom with all the details I desired. It will be cherished for a long time, probably last for ages and will be worn long after my child is grown. #Repost ・・・
I love how simple shapes can come together with so much meaning.
Also! Ever wonder what I'm up to when I'm away from the work bench? Check out @treemistress to get to know me a bit. 😉
Merry Christmas! Christmas day selfie, honestly, so I can show off this amazing new handwoven wrap by @canydesigns. This piece of Golden Poppy arrived yesterday and I can't get enough of it. The color and weave are stunning, and it wraps like a dream. It's the perfect amount of stretch and support for the little man. Also visible are my new festive Lipsense, and a little something new I'm working on at Seashore Design Studio [@ilanaseashore]. #handwoven#wovenwrap#canydesigns#infant#lipsense#goldenpoppy#momlife#babyboy#christmasday#seashoredesignstudio
2017 has been a wild, weird and wonderful year for me. I am unendingly grateful for the people, opportunities and inspirations brought my way via Seashore Design Studio, as well as the kindness and patience of my clients as I've prepared for and settled into the changes this year has brought. Thank you a thousand times. Happy New Year, friends! 💙
My top 9 of 2017. I had planned to do a lot in 2017 and wound up mostly just being pregnant and prepping for baby. So for 2018, I'll get it together. I'll work harder. I'll be kind, but fierce. I'll wear lipstick, just because. I'll listen to my favorite music and sing along. I'll clear space around me and in my head. I'll do the best I can, and learn to tune out and shut down outside noise as needed. Cheers to 2018, and to you, my friends. May love and light, health and happiness be yours now and always.
See those clasps? They let you mix and match your preferred length chain with nearly any of our centerpieces, charms and pendants. You get versatility and style, your little one (if you have one, these are fun for anyone) gets something to play with instead of pinching you - and you know it's sturdy enough to survive the play.
Seashore Design Studio (@ilanaseashore) is taking part in the #jewelrybrandmakeover by Flourish and Thrive Academy! I've got so much going on (can you kinda tell from the picture?) but I'm taking the time to follow this course as best I can so I can engage in some business self discovery and try to refine my ideas of where I am and where I'm going. Too often, small business owners are so busy working IN their business that they don't take time to work ON their business. We're just starting out, but I've already been able to start working on what my ideal business looks like, so I can implement strategies to get there.
Day 13 of #shortdayslongwraps is Rainbow’s Back Carry. Lyra is catching on to this whole bribery for #babywearingchallenge help so tonight she wanted her tablet and a purple sling ring.
I did this in base +1 and would probably use +2 if I did it again. I decided to follow the ring finish video by @acewrapping because the order of the passes was going to work better for me. I was happy with the final result but I messed up the last pass - I forgot to put it under her leg. So that looks a bit funny. It was fairly comfortable but definitely one of those carries that was a bit of a workout to complete! #toddlerwrapping#babywearersofinstagram#artipoppe#seashoredesignstudio#rainbowsbackcarry
10 days until this contest closes! Remember to use #seashoredesignstudio when you show off your Seashore Design Studio pieces here on Instagram for a chance to win this denim lapis accented fine silver snowflake!
Spreading the love...because Seashore Design Studio offers me opportunities I wouldn't otherwise have, I like to pass that good along. For the final quarter of 2017, we donated $305 to a local chapter of The Ronald McDonald House charities. For the first quarter, we'll be donating a portion of sales to MOMMA'S House, right here on Long Island, helping support young moms as they get back on their feet.
This centerpiece is the one that was peeking out in yesterday's photo. It has sold, but it's so lovely I can't help sharing it again.
Forever a favorite here - circles are simple, but simple looks great no matter which way they twist and turn! Plus there's plenty of space in this signature centerpiece for little fingers to nestle into.
Being a mom of 2 now, I feel like I need to simplify everything just to make life a bit easier! Is it just me?
