Inspired // Ariele Alasko

7:00 AM

This year is a big year for me. I plan to do a lot of things regarding the business, but for myself as well. One thing I have been telling myself lately is to never stop learning. I don't want to fall into the after college rut of focusing only on work and whatever else. I want to learn to sew, knit, build, fix- anything and everything! One day I want to look back and say, "I did a lot of cool things in my life." 

Ariele Alasko is such a talented wood-worker and I felt like it was appropriate to showcase her beautiful work in this post. She posted a photo one day on Instagram showing herself/that she is in fact a girl behind all the beautiful wood-work (people tend to refer to her as a guy.) I thought it was pretty funny, but most of all- inspiring. I love her beautiful panels and would love to own a piece someday. I also think carving spoons looks like so much fun... maybe I will give it a try someday! Check out her work here!

Is there anything you guys are learning this year!?
