Follow Me on Instagram… I have five years of making up to do!

Instagram launched in 2010. I opened my account in 2012 and posted this in July of that year:

And I remember that drink – was out to dinner with my mom-and-dad-in-law and contemplated having a 2nd in front of them… that Pom-Tini was a strong drink! lol!

Despite being a fabulous cocktail, it sat there all alone for over 5 years. Until about 6 weeks ago I’ve been posting a pic just about every day. I feel like I’m starting all over again! As you can see in the snapshot below, I have just over 100 followers. If only I kept up with it for these last five years… ugh.

Anyway, if you are on Instagram, please follow me @theBasketMakersWife  I promise to follow back.

If you are not familiar with Instagram take a look. No stories… just Photos with a short description. It’s actually quite fun. I post pics of Eric in the workshop, his baskets, my paintings, and of course photos of Jaxson, Chance and CoCo Kitty sprinkled in between. Check it out here.

See you on Instagram!!

Hands, Head & Heart

I’m always reminding Eric that he is, in deed, an artist! He sees himself as a laborer and a craftsman. I think he’s slowly starting to understand what an artist is! Below is one of my favorite quotes, from St. Francis of Assisi, that I thought I’d share. I relay the same sentiment to Eric frequently that this is him, the artist!
In case you’re wondering what I am? I’m a lazy artist. I may work with my hands but whether I use my head is questionable and I’m seriously no laborer—way too lazy!
