My first love has always been writing. I love the way words can communicate your feelings, passions, and emotions. But, images will always be a close second. And, in our creative community, images are king. Instagram has been such a powerful inspirational and motivational tool for me and those little glimpses inside the lives of my favorite artists were the basis for our newest column, A Day In The Life. Last week we got to peek inside the world of Steven Alan and this week we’re getting to see what life is like on a daily basis for talented artist and woodworker, Ariele Alasko.
Our entire team started following Ariele’s beautiful blog a few years ago and have become obsessed with everything from her work to her home and studio. I saved up and purchased one of Ariele’s amazing headboards and cutting boards for my own home and they’ve become some of my most prized and treasured possessions. I’ve so enjoyed seeing Ariele’s work as much as I enjoy seeing the world through her eyes. Thanks so much to Ariele for sharing this peek inside her daily life with us.
