One hot buttered rum (just the way Dad used to make it) and the @hallmarkchannel. Because, Friday! 👍🏻
Also. In case you didn’t know. This is the last weekend to order if you want to wrap some happiness under the tree. And use code “ohyayfreeship” for free shipping through the weekend. 🙌🏻
love when a client collaboration is so awesome! a new fan ordered one of my hometown coordinates frames, hung it on her wall, and asked for another custom piece to make her wall space complete 💚 #reneststudio#merriestchristmas#customsigns
‘Tis the season for working extra hours. I’m working hard to get orders out by Monday! I still have a handful of ready to ship dresses and skirts if you need something last minute. Just DM and I can tell you what I have in stock 😊

Camping in a winter wonderland! ❄️🌲 I made this cute retro shadow box last year and it is still one of my favorites! Makes me wish it actually snowed here. (Sorta.) 😂 It is featured in the most recent issue of Vintage Holiday Magazine, too!

I have massive big plans for 2018 and I hope you’ll be along for the ride.
One thing I want you to know about the future of merriweather is that we are elevating to new levels of service to you.
In 2017 we learned a lot and a lot of great things are happening in 2018 based on the clarity and learning that was uncovered this year.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the reason I wanted to incorporate teaching into my business is because of the immense pride and happiness my product based business has provided me with- especially when I had just graduated and was getting side eye all over the place for ditching grad school to sell embroidery hoops lol. And proving people wrong because YES YOU CAN. it feels crazy good to sell the work you love to make to people who love to buy it and support it. Being your own boss feels awesome. i wanted other people to feel that way about their work and their talents. That’s why I teach.
What I love most about teaching is that now, instead of building my own one business, I’m a small part of many successful businesses- and THAT also feels great but more importantly it plays to my bigger picture. In my ideal world art craft and design are understood and common and people don’t feel intimidated to buy art. And everyone loves shopping indie and it’s not an ocsssion it just is what we do. In my ideal world more people understand and value art and craft and the best way for that to happen is for more artists and craftspeople and makers to get out there with their work. My teaching you how to do that is a small part of my ideal world becoming reality.
My students have experienced crazy success, reveled in moments of serious clarity, loads of a-has happened, people unlocked their potential and saw results they did not think were possible - there were opportunities galore and we loved every minute of it.
In 2018 I’m planning to invest more self, time and resources into The Council (my members are 🎉😍🤩👌🎄) and explore more creativity with my hands as well.
I’ll be sharing more about what you’ll want to know about merri 2018 soon! Stay tuned!
