Engagement Photo Shoot: Kristine & Dan

Why, oh why have I been woefully behind on posting all the beautiful photos fellow dream beacons have sent me that include uplift artisan kites?!! It’s called life, my friends. Which has included not putting blog posts on the top of my priority list. Uncool, because I have lots to share and say. So let’s […]

UPLIFT ARTISAN OF THE DAY: MC Yogi (plus, maybe some kids dancing)

I can’t stop listening to this song A.U.M. by MC Yogi. It inspires spontaneous studio dance parties. I can’t stop watching this uncut version of 2 little kids I know getting down’ to A.U.M. It’s too much awesomeness to handle.

UPLIFT ARTISAN OF THE DAY: Wes Anderson

Sometimes, it’s hard to decide what to post for the day. Especially on Saturdays. And Sundays. It doesn’t help that I’m almost overwhelmed by the options of creative goodness.

UPLIFT ARTISAN OF THE DAY: Kari Chapin

I’m not a techie person. I’m not into being glued to the TV or computer a lot. I’m more of a Laura Ingalls type of gal who loves books and wishes she could time travel. BUT, I have learned to love what the online world has done for me. Because of UPLIFT ARTISAN, the online […]

UPLIFT ARTIST OF THE DAY: Sam Larson

When you read this, I may or may not be in the wilderness somewhere, possibly fending off bears. Which had me thinking about this young artist, Sam Larson (yes, that’s how my brain works), who lives in San Diego. His work is very western/nature themed. Bison, bears, beavers. Foxes on bikes. Arrowheads. You get the […]

UPLIFT ARTISAN OF THE DAY: Alex Chacon

The UPLIFT ARTISAN OF THE DAY is Alex Chacon. He made this happiness-inducing video. All you selfie lovers, travelers and photographers/videographers out there are going to love it. Check out his website:  The Modern Motorcycle Diaries      

UPLIFT ARTISAN OF THE DAY: Janine Vangool of UPPERCASE Magazine

Today’s Uplift Artisan is Janine Vangool of UPPERCASE Magazine. UPPERCASE was an immediate eye catcher at the local Anthropologie a couple of years back. I drool over every single issue. Janine’s eye curates color, design, whimsy, and craft in a way that speaks to my creative, curious brain (plus, she loves vintage typewriters!!). The tag line is, […]
