Well. That's it. I'm officially never going to get any work done again.
Yesterday morning at 5:00 AM, I stumbled across Vintage Vogue on Instagram. Here's the description.
The account of Vogue Magazine archives. Dedicated in sharing daily nostalgic images that once graced the pages of Vogue in times gone by.
I stayed in bed clicking the heart icon until I'd skimmed their entire archive. Literally. Here are a few of my favorites.
Anything glamorous planned for the weekend? Lounging in your caftan with a fancy cocktail? Maybe riding a unicorn? xo

I love seeing a creative project that's been living in my brain for such a long time finally come to life.
Sandra Harris and I have teamed up to launch We Are The Contributors, a creative community and publication that brings together artists, designers, photographers, writers, and all kinds of makers around themed creative projects. Today we're launching our very first project!
I hope you'll go and check out the site, take a look at all the wonderful work that our inaugural Contributors did for our first online exhibition (here's my piece!), and sign up to participate in future projects. You can keep up with We Are The Contributors on Facebook or by following the hashtag #aContributor on Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.
I hope you enjoy it, and I'd love to see your work! xoxo
Good morning! I wanted to share another Three Gift list with you in case you're looking to give or receive a gift today.
GIFT TO BUY: BLOCK SHOP SCARF
My Block Shop scarf (like the one pictured above) is one of my favorite go-to accessories. I wear it almost every time I decide to change out of pajamas and actually leave my apartment.
Block Shop was founded by sisters Lily and Hopie Stockman who work directly with printers in Bagru, India to create their beautifully designed scarves. Each scarf is printed one at a time with hand-carved wooden blocks using non-toxic dyes.
Yesterday was my birthday, so feel free to pick up this Block Shop scarf for me. :)
GIFT FOR YOU: BLOG WITH PURPOSE
I used to spend a lot more time writing about blogging and sharing tips and resources specifically geared toward bloggers. While I haven't made a conscious effort to blog about blogging less often, it's just naturally happened as my focus has shifted from "being a blogger" to helping all types of creatives and focusing on my own art and writing goals.
Blogging is still a huge part of my own creative life, as well as a large focus of the work that I do with my clients. Today I'd like to offer you a complimentary copy of my Blog With Purpose workbook. Just use the code IFGGIFT2013 any time before 11:59 PM PST today and you can download it for free!
GIFT TO HELP: INSPIRATION TRAVEL TIN FROM PROSPERITY CANDLE
When you shop at Prosperity Candle you'll have a direct positive impact on women and children.
"Our brand is distinguished by a sense of hopefulness, respect, and beauty. Although Prosperity Candle works with women in some of the toughest parts of the world, with very dark stories, we focus on light and possibility. We focus on the creativity and resilience that women have." —Siiri Morley, Founding Partner of Prosperity Candle
The Inspiration Travel Tin could be a fun gift to buy and leave for a stranger in a public place. Include a note so the person who finds it knows that it's for them. Maybe your offering will encourage others to perform random acts of kindness this holiday season. If you enjoy it, you can buy a Inspiration Candle Subscription and keep up the practice for an entire year.
I'll see you guys back here on Wednesday with a big announcement! I've been working on a new creative project with Sandra Harris of Raincoast Creative Salon and we'll finally be able to share it with you this week! It's going to bring a lot of different types of artists and creatives together, and we're so excited about it. I hope you'll like it and want to participate too. Come back Wednesday! xo
My friends at Equals asked me to contribute an essay to their gratitude issue this week, and this is something that I've been thinking about a lot lately. It's weird to say that I'm grateful that my first pregnancy resulted in a miscarriage, but if hadn't happened that way I never would have met my amazing little boy. You can read I'm Grateful for My Specific Son over at Equals.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I have so many things to be grateful for and I'm constantly aware of and appreciative of them. Love to you all. xoxo
