AMid October, I woke up at 3 am thinking about my college watercolor course. For several weeks, I would wake up in the wee hours of the morning and couldn’t shake my thoughts about this class… and my desire to take another course. My art school days were nothing short of magic—there’s a unique environment that exists in a room of artists: breakdowns and breakthroughs, artist block and divine inspiration, and then there are the class critiques—a few short minutes of sharing your work and having it questioned and discussed. I LOVED the critiques. It’s 3 am and I’m thinking about having imaginary artwork critiqued instead of sleeping so I can teach my own classroom full of students the next morning. . I wait a few weeks to tell my husband my silly, habitual dream. . Would you believe it if I told you—he told me some dreams are from God and I should definitely take the class. Now’s my chance, listen to that voice. . The amount of things I had to shuffle around (and people shuffled around on my behalf)—I’m humbled and thankful. For the first time in my life, I’m taking a single college course for no other reason than to paint. In a classroom with my favorite professor. And watch myself grow. 🌱 . This has been my ‘good thing’ to share since before my registration went through. I have primarily been drawing digitally for the past few years for the artwork I make for my business, so I’ve been assembling new watercolor supplies, brushes, and I predict my skills are just as rusty as my dusty supplies. . Much of schooling comes out of necessity for the piece of paper at the end. A diploma. Certificate. That degree that says you checked the long list of boxes. . For years, I have shied away from trying new things because the perfectionist in me didn’t want to fail. I stopped letting those unattainable thoughts seep into my actions. Remember dear, perfection is unattainable. . Whether your are currently in school or you are in your mid-fifties and nearing retirement, I challenge you to learn something new that interests YOU. Here’s to learning and growing, and enjoying the journey along the way. 🌱 . Swipe to see some cookie decorating LEARNING and GROWTH.

The kiddo requested a cranberry curd tart for our family dinner tonight—I probably should have thoroughly read the instructions and started it yesterday 😅, but it’s pretty ♥️. . . . . . #sunday #sundayfunday #family #nyt #cranberry #tart #boymom #momlife #baking #winter #november #red #orange #together #qualitytime #handmade #motherhood #orange #red #vibrant

Thank you for shopping small and supporting our small family business, we cannot express how much it means to us. The Mr. and I met in art school some fifteen years ago—our time together was spent in studio classes for four years of our lives, and then we graduated. After a five year hiatus, this business was born out of the desire to create art together again ♥️. Thank you for supporting our family, we are so thankful for each and everyone of you. I hope this season finds you with a full heart and a mountain of blessings ♥️ . . . #thanks #giving #givingthanks #gratitude #grateful #fall #winter #november #joy #thanksgiving #alaska #smallbusiness #family #smallfamilybusiness #together #illustration

Are we a little crazy? Maybe. But we are determined to pull it off. Etsy shop update this Saturday at 11 am AKST. This is your last chance to snag any crewnecks, long sleeves, Christmas Card Bundles, @ashleybennett_customcreations fabric pouches, and some earrings before the end of the year! I have hopes of doing a larger earring drop this winter, but no guarantees before 2023! . . . . . #smallbusinesssaturday #shopsmall #thanksgiving #saturday #winter #weekend #maker #update #etsy #november #cozy #alaska #palmer #wasilla #anchorage #eagleriver #lastchance
