Happy Friday lovely people! Hope that you have had a wonderful week + have something FUN on your radar for the weekend. In today’s scouts + shouts, we’re sharing some of our favorite finds from the week. Some new, some rediscovered and all with the intention of inviting you to bring creativity + curiosity into your daily life.


I recently re-discovered the work of Dutch artist Karel Martens. The graphicness + color combinations are so inspiring to us in our work as artists, designers and creators. Something about his work makes me smile! A quick read on his background here. A comprehensive image round-up here.

It’s coat season! Our favorite. You’d think by our collection of colorful coats between the two of us, that we live somewhere colder than Dallas. But, alas, no. We just love to wrap up in yummy, bright goodness all fall / winter long. A few we’re eyeing this season: here, here and here.

Gallery wall goals right here.

In love with these ceramic beauties right now. Considering a bulk buy for everyone on my gift list at holiday.

Never been a huge fan of nail art…until now.

What makes you different.

A powerful Ted Talk on working with (and embracing) limitations.

In case you missed it, Monday’s creative invitation and this week’s color crush: think jewels.

Happy Weekend!
