I want to see the colours of another sky 🌌 #zeewipark
Who’s gonna let the dogs out? #whowhowho ..but first, let’s make a doggie totem! who’s in? 🙌🏼 #doggietotem .
the snow you see in the window is all gone now and we’re down to frozen grass. i’m so glad snow is in the forecast this week just in time for christmas. i’ve never wanted it so bad 🙈😂❄️
There are moments when i realize just how in tune my children are with each other and with me. littlest “observed” little’s violin lessons when she was 18months old… and fast forward to her now being three, and back before the plague fully knocked me down…
i crazily drove my family an hour away to take advantage of the last 40 degree day (worth it btw especially since its been in the negative temps the last few days) for our holiday card. but you know something you are doing is kind of working, especially when you toddler starts belting out “miss-is-sip-pi riv—er” at the top of her lungs with her makeshift w**d violin and today you guys both of them unsolicited asked if they could help me out and told me to rest today!
gosh there are rough moments, when it feels like the “plague” keeps winning, with the steroid keeping me up through out the night and the cold is only irritating the cough more… but i feel so fortunate to have them remind me of the important stuff. .
so thank you for all your support as my village! i asked for some help yesterday and you guys are all delivering! i will keep thinking positive thoughts…. while numbers really don’t mean much to me, i set a goal…. and i will try my hardest to achieve it, if it happens great, if it doesn’t i’ll use it to keep me going. if you want to help, save this picture, comment, like, share and lets see if we can somehow defy the odds! xoxo!
and ps. did i chose the right picture to edit?!? swipe to see a back of the camera shot that was my runner up! •

This isn’t a camera trick. “my favorite part of this video is that people would never know how many takes i tried,” says illusionist henry harrius (@henryharrius ), who specializes in close-up and interactive magic. “we filmed this outdoors, so the wind made it much harder. i also wanted to try to catch the cards without looking. that's why it took so many takes to make it work.”
do you believe in magic? ✨ #thisweekoninstagram we are showcasing the art of illusion. who are your favorite illusionists?

~rocky shores~ the rocks scrape your feet, walking down the jagged shoreline. the sea is cold and the clouds are heavy.
you don’t know how far you’ll go, how far you want to go; but going is all you do. left behind you, traces of feet in gravel and sand, soon erased by the tide. what you created, gone shortly after.
you have thoughts, but they come and go, unimaginative, flawed. they flow through you like the wind blows around you. the tide rises ever higher as the ice recedes and the plastics of the world dissolve into poison.
each wave brushes the rocks around you. soaking your feet and swelling the skin, weakening you with each kiss of the sea.
the rocks cut deeper.
specks of blood stain the path behind you. your gift back to the vampiric lands you have s****d so much from. you’re here, for only god may know, you are here. spinning around with the earth. all the spinning makes you dizzy.
you walk further.
there is a melody here, with each wave and each step. a cadence to it all. you play your role, but you don’t know why.

couldn’t resist going back to cape tribulation whilst i was in @tropicalnorthqueensland. ⠀
it’s insane the amount of marine life you can spot up here. ⠀
last time i got an amazing shot of a giant sea turtle, i also got some footage of sharks last time but accidentally deleted the footage. i was gutted 😭
luckily this time after watching a large bait ball swirl around for a couple of minutes a large group of sharks started picking the fish off. eventually this big guy showed up... ⠀
if you look closely you can see the little fish latched onto the sharks side, and even the tail end of a fish the shark was finishing up for lunch in his mouth 😅. ⠀
anyone know what type of shark this is?

#madones you weren’t born to stand in
to follow the leader
riding the flow of life
you are the disruption
the inevitable change that comes with each season
and altering the tides
you are wild
and the world thanks you for it
I was chatting with a sweet friend of mine the other day. she saw one of my story’s and messaged me saying she was proud of me for taking the time to cuddle with baby.
this may seem like a weird thing to say because who doesn’t like baby cuddles right?
we had a conversation just a while before saying how hard it is for us to just relax and cuddle our babies while they sleep. we could take that time to clean, play with our other child, etc.
we both like to have a clean house and want our husbands to come home (or wake up) to a clean house as well. we want to take the babyless time to play with our older kids. and most of the time that’s exactly what we did. but realized even though it is important to do other things sometimes we can let the laundry go, let the dishes pile up a bit, and let our other child have some quiet time so we can relax, cuddle and connect with our babies.
laundry will always be there (seems even right after you literally get it all cleaned and put away 🤦♀️) your older children will still have enough attention from you and will have other times to get it, but baby will only be a baby for a short time.
There’s less than two weeks left to create a little christmas magic!! i’ve spent this week both wrapping up christmas orders and finding time in between to finish up a few christmas gifts for my friends and family. this hand engraved lock is one of those gifts that is ready to ship. ✨some of my most treasured gifts are things that have elements of art and handmade. i remember one christmas season i was supposed to babysit for the neighbor twins. it was customary for me to call home and let the phone ring once when i got there to let my parents know i was ok. it was snowing and the couple was running late so they called to say to come a bit later. i had answered on the first ring. my dad heard the phone ring once, thought i was checking in, and ran up the stairs carrying the christmas gift had been working on for me. it was a beautiful wooden, victorian doll house. the surprise was ruined. however, it wasn’t nearly complete and i was still surprised by its beauty on christmas day. that very same doll house is next to my desk where my daughter now plays with it. inside are miniature rugs my mom braided from ribbons, trinkets and miniature furniture i collected or made over the years, and it is still being added to. it’s a handmade gift that’s has become an heirloom. the magic of that christmas continues on and hopefully will for another as my daughter has already requested we keep it for her kids. what’s one of your favorite handmade gifts? #workwithyourhands .
