I always become so inspired taking a look through the pure art of @handcraftedmovement. Matt's dedication to excellence + authentic creativity (which takes grace, because we're all human) often spurs me to self-examine what I end up out-putting as a creative. I ask myself "how can I improve what the end result of what I build? How can I add value to the lives of others through what I build? How am I inspiring others through what I build?" Being intentional in every action, while at the same time being gracious with yourself starts to refine a vision for your purpose.
Take a look through Matt's extraordinary builds, it's hard not to become inspired (& want to move into one of them asap! 😉) Keep creating + inspiring, Matt ⚡️ @handcraftedmovement

It is really challenging to keep on going when things get hard, but the fruits are always on the other side. Feeling a lot of difficult things in my life lately and also feeling incredibly grateful for the ability to keep on going and healing along the way. #tinyhouse#tinyhome
Walls and roof are coming along on this Acorn mode tiny home! At only 13-ft long with a 3-ft deck add on, this house will be home to our Owners, Tina and Luke, and their 4 dogs! They will be traveling the country for the holidays. Make sure to follow along to see if you will be at any of their scheduled stops. Happy Sunday!
After running comes wine flights and tiny homes 🏠 For our last night we are staying at a tiny house Air B&B that was built in 1840. It’s the cutest place ever! And just a walk down the historic district was a wine bar. Best way to wrap up the weekend. My mom and I have been in 3 states in 3 days. Great weekend! Swipe left to see the tiny house. #thewinekitchen#WKLeesburg#tinyhouse#leesburgva
Even though we were less than 50 miles from home, parked in a fair grounds field, and chilling on an air mattress; we got a tiny taste of what bus life is going to be like. The kids love it, we love it, and we had a blast showing @numberjuanbus this weekend at the @unitedtinyhouse festival.
All the buslifers are awesome & we are stoked to be a part of this community!
Today I officially joined the "I put my tree up before Thanksgiving" club. My tree is tiny but so is my house. I feel justified in my early decorations since both my tiny Halloween is still set up in a lower cube, and I have yet to switch my fall table linens out for my Christmas. That CAN wait until black Friday at least. Lol. #tinytree#tinyhouse#tinyapartment#tinyliving#tinyhalloween
Added a few more bathroom shelves and it has made a world of difference! More room for bedding, towels and of course nail supplies 💅

Do you take time to step away and recharge? ☕️⠀
This last week has been filled with joy, strategizing, rest, and lots and lots of laughter next to three of my favorites. 💕⠀
Our @luxurytinyhome retreat was everything you might imagine... cozy, beautiful, and it left each of us walking away with new insight and inspiration for the coming months. ✨⠀
Taking time off to recharge and plan for the bigger picture isn't the easiest thing to do; just like so many others, I get caught up in the day-to-day tasks that fuel my business, rather than focusing on fueling myself first. Anyone else? 📖⠀
This is why I'm so darn grateful for a tribe that encourages breaks from the chaos on a regular basis. 😌⠀
PS: Have you been or stayed in a tiny home?? It was quite the experience, we loved and learned so much about this intentional, minimal lifestyle together! 🖤

Our little weekend getaway was just what I needed 🖤 Fun fact, this cabin is roughly the same size our first apartment was!
This was last week in San Diego, and since then we have been to Mexico and now back in the Sedona area! How do we make money to travel? We get that question all the time! There isn’t a short answer, but now there’s a video!👍🏼 Go check it out and leave your thoughts in comments😍 Link in bio⤴️
Ever since we finished van we have been having a constant internal battle of whether or not to get a dog😂 Luckily, for the time being, we have plenty of family members with dogs to borrow, lol. What do you think, van life with or without a pooch?🐶
Waiting for someone to pinch me because tomorrow is move in day.

We built this little bathhouse in the woods, off grid, more than twenty years ago. It needs a new flooor and a bit of work, but the hand painted snake still proudly adorns the claw foot tub. Flip to see full outside view. Visit my page for a closeup of the snake! #cabininthewoods#ourhappyplace#sanctuary#offgrid#madewithlove

We don’t watch football, so here we are working on a place for you to lay your head some day. We live about a mile from the broncos stadium... picture going to the game and stumbling back to this sweet pad.
Kisses and love to the ones that helped me remember I’m alive and can receive love, kiss my ass to the one that allowed me to forget what I was worth inside. Never give your power away ladies and Gents/ kings and queens. Thank you life lessons. Thank you spirit. .
