| c o w o r k e r Did we just go a round over screen time? Yep. #keepitreal
Then there are times like now when this guy can just sit and be quiet with his own thoughts.
I’m so grateful for these glimpses to watch his mind and creativity at work.
I am practicing silence when we are together- it’s not an easy exercise for me. It’s so rewarding though. I am always amazed at what he’s thinking of or what he tells me when he’s ready. What he hums or the conversations he has when he’s imagining.
Remember tiptoeing out of bedrooms so they wouldn’t wake up? Sometimes I feel like I’m doing that again- except I’m sitting real still watching and hoping the moment won’t break. #foundinyou

| m a g n e t Bottle cap magnets have been a fun and unique addition to the shop ever since I started Found in You.
It’s been fun to branch out and create some new and out of the box magnets too! So many designs and colors to choose from.
Spent a few hours this weekend, creating and updating the magnet collection at the shop. Stop by this week and pick out a few. 🌈🌈🌈 #foundinyou

| r e d o Over the Christmas break I cleaned, rearranged and updated the decor in our master bedroom.
Sometimes I get frustrated with how much little junky things I have setting around collecting dust. It felt so good to take everything off the walls, decide what I wanted to keep and then find a new way to use them.
I still would like to add an updated picture of us on the right of the sign, but I’m loving how fresh the space feels so far!
There are always so many small updates and big projects I’d just like to crack out- but it’s not always feasible. Starting small and working with what you’ve got can be a good solution in the meantime. #foundinyou

| l o v e Scotty is a really good gift giver. He always thinks of things that I didn’t know I wanted but after receiving was like yes this is just what I need!
Since moving Carter into my old office over the summer and my new workspace taking over the garage, I haven’t been able to utilize it much because it is so cold out here.
Running a space heater trips the breaker when you use the microwave. And painting in gloves and a beanie is just dumb. So when Scotty surprised me with this heater I was so happy. He researched it, bought it, ran the electric and installed it this weekend.
So thankful for him. ❤️ My brushes are going again!...
| p o r c h Loving this customer photo she set of her porch!
The pillow, the sign, the tree in the basket! There are so many inexpensive and fun ways to create spaces and a home you love! Thanks for sharing @smythnadine #foundinyou

If ever there was a year when we need cheerleaders in business, 2020 was it. Countless times the past year, Christina Aungst Kyllonen has talked me off the ledge, talked me out of quitting, encouraged me, given me ideas, and carried me.
When she gifted this to me this week, because 2020 was in spite of it all still the biggest year in business for me, I cried.
We made it through 2020.
There is hope for 2021. Even if it isn’t what we are expecting, we can do hard things.
All creativity isn’t lost, in fact we have more ideas than ever for this upcoming year, what a relief!
This cup is so perfect for me. I think I’ve told her this once or twice. “Don’t buy that, we can totally make it.” 🤣
Thanks for how you’ve helped my business grow, The Fancy Unicorn.
| s e c o n d Tomorrow is second Friday downtown! So many of our downtown business and restaurant friends are open late for you! Every time this happens it makes it totally worthwhile to get out and support local all in one night!
We hope you will check out our glistening snowflakes in the window and then stop in for some fun home decor and furniture!
The shop is open tomorrow 10am-8pm. #foundinyou

| t r e e Those fabric trees I made? I couldn’t pack them up and I’m so glad I didn’t.
When my mom sent me this photo of her mantle with her fabric trees, I knew why I didn’t.
I think the kind of decor that can connect and especially prolong seasons is the best kind!
They are still available at the shop, pick up your set this week! #foundinyou

| r e m i n d e r I’ll be live from the shop tonight, 5p on IG and 6p on Facebook for a watch party!
Here are a few things that will be debuting tonight. This will be the perfect time to find some decor to fill in those spaces that are maybe currently empty after Christmas for this season before spring! Do a quick look through your spaces before tonight and maybe pick one or two (or ten 😜) things you’d like to look for during the watch party!
Also in case you needed a reality check- you might always see the pretty photos, but remember there is always a behind the scenes that is lived in and real life. ✌🏼 #foundinyou
