When I was a kid, I wanted to be an astronomer 🔭 My dad bought me a telescope for Christmas one year and we used to go out into the backyard in the cold night and gaze up at the full moon. He'd say, "There's a face, can you see it?" 🌝 I'd marvel at the craters and dimples that textured the dusty-seeming surface of the moon. It was magic 💫 Who knew a lifetime later, I would still be worshipping the moon in all her infinite glory 🌖 What did you want to be when you were a kid? @gather757 @campfireandco
"Empowered women empower women" That's all I can think when I see my peggies out in the wild at artisan markets and craft shows. Is that a stretch? Naaahhhh 💁🏽♀️ It's a wonderful exchange that happens when I get to work with other makers. They bless me with their business and I get to help them attract others to bless their biz. And the cycle of blessings continue 🙏🏽 Pictured here is Kristin. She handcrafts amazing leather accessories. You can find her gorgeous work on her ig @kristinpaigeva now excuse me while I swooooon over that belt bag 😍 PC @kristinpaigeva
Let's take a step back from our busy brains 🧠 for a sec. I'm curious about something and want to ask you. What does CALM look 👀 like to you? Is it a cloudless sky? A sleeping baby? A full fridge? An invitation to vacation from the couch? 🛋️ For me, calm looks like open space. It looks like the horizon on the ocean. It looks like springtime fields impossibly bursting with little yellow flowers 🌼 It looks like a BLANK slate. A BLANK wall and, fuck it, a BLANK check too 😜 What it doesn't look like is: clutter. It fucks with my calm. Visual clutter. Auditory clutter. Olfactory clutter (huh??) get it all out of here. Open space for living, for breathing, for playing. Ahhhh, let me meditate on that 🧘🏽♀️ PC @katesupaphoto
My neighbor has a new roommate. They have the barkiest dog in the history of dogs.. I suspect a touch of separation anxiety at play 🥴 It's really disrupting my morning peace 🤫 I put on music to drown out the sounds of high pitched yelping. But now another doggo is adding his tenor to the mix 🙉 How loud is socially acceptable when blasting @sza on a Monday morning? Help me. ANYWAY.. How perfect is this #peggieinthewild featured in the cutest rainbowy 🌈 room for little Arlo. I love that mom @crunkmeg and dad @true.love.neon are using a #montessori approach when it comes to selecting items for Arlo. LOVE a wooden toy. I think my fav part of the room is those two cutie modern rainbow wall hangings 😬 What's yours?
✴️Special Announcement✴️ The shop will be closed for several weeks beginning April 2nd. Because my peggies are made to order, the deadline to purchase and have your items shipped before the shop closes is FEBRUARY 2ND at 11:59pm. After Feb 2nd, all listings will be marked as "Sold Out" until the shop reopens. That means if you don't order before Feb 2nd, you'll have to wait until May to receive a pegboard. If you've been wanting to commission me for custom work, now would be a good time to slide in those DMs 💌 Thank you for your continued support!! I'm excited to be able to take an extended amount of time off to rest, relax, and explore.
What in the actual fuck did we witness yesterday? 😱 Headlines should read: Nation's dangerously sore losers show whole ass during violent temper tantrum at Capitol building. It would be SO amazing if, for just a brief moment, we could live our lives without literally witnessing American history being made. It's a lot 😞 Here's a reminder that we don't have to let what's going on in DC disrupt our inner peace. Yes we can be angry. Yes we can be flabbergasted at THE AUDACITY. But in the end, it doesn't serve us to put our emotional wellbeing in the hands of domestic terrorists. Let's take a collective breath: innn 2...3...4 and outtttt 2...3...4... 🧘🏽♀️ Now repeat after me: "Everything is going to be alright." Take it easy, friends ✌🏽
Looking for more home gym inspiration? Take a page out of this PT clinic's book and get yo shit off the floor! Sidenote: this is probably the chicest physical therapy office I've ever seen. Sliding barn door? A trifecta of sansevieria? Turf flooring? Ok.. I'm not sold on that last one ⚽ Peggies, man. They sure can do it all.
I hate that every New Year we're bombarded with messaging that makes us feel like we're failing if we don't 180 the fuck outta our bodies and lives.⠀ ⠀ Miss me with that "New Year New Me" BS 🙅🏽♀️⠀ ⠀ I decided that I don't make resolutions anymore. But rather, I want to lean into what feels good and right and lean out of what feels bad/wrong and toxic.⠀ ⠀ That means if Froot Loops with Marshmallows taste good but make me feel sick, I probs shouldn't eat them 😅⠀ ⠀ It also means that if movement helps my mood, helps my sleep and makes my body feel good, I should prob do more of that.⠀ ⠀ I'm thinking if I had a legit indoor space to move around, it would be a lot easier. Something like this @onepeloton 🚴🏽 station that @cristinlobeck has in her home. Cause LORT you know I won't be outside in these streets 🥶⠀ ⠀ Are you making any resolutions? Or are you just happy to have made it to 2021?⠀
That post holiday vibe ✨ The end of a journey, aching for a fresh start; comme carte blanche 🗒️ Speaking of a blank slate, I FINALLY had the time to start on the guest room "makeover" 🙌🏽 I have a whole peace and tranquility vibe in my head and I can't wait to show you the process. So far, I've painted (only took 8 months of procrastinating 😝) so now I can actually start putting in furnit.. errrrmm I mean now I can actually start building furniture 😬 I'm planning on: a window bench + bookshelf unit/reading nook, a queen bed frame/headboard, and maybe a little writing desk situation. Let me not get ahead of myself 😅 Have you started on any fresh projects to begin this New Year?
2020. It's been... a lot. Despite the challenges of this year, it was my best in business... and in personal life I'd say too 😅 but that's a different post for another day I'm so proud to have been featured in Etsy tv commercials and promotions, on IG, in blogs, on podcasts, and a local magazine. I've been able to expand my offerings beyond pegboards and was able to hire Mary to help in the shop. This year, I increased sales by 400% and revenue by 250% over last year 🥳 and I have no intention of slowing down 💪🏽 I'm so proud of all of the hard work that I've put in. It's a wonderful feeling to have a shred of financial stability for the first time in 32 years.. and what a blessing in such a fucked up time 🙏🏽 So I guess what I'm saying is: 2020: THANK YOU, NEXT. Happy New Year friends 🖤
I woke up on my couch at 5:45am confused as fuck. I was almost mad at myself. Then I begrudgingly made my way upstairs to brush my teeth and get into actual bed. Where I finished off my sleep for a few hours. What is my life? How did your day start? 😂
You ever get on IG for a specific reason (ex: trying to post for the day) and get HELLA sidetracked 🙃 I know you have. Cause it happens to me every damn day. I just wanted to hop on to post my daily bs and the next thing I know, I’m elbows deep in what this full moon 🌚 in cancer ♋ is asking me to do (lots of emotional purging, btw) Anyway, here’s to another day of pseudo vacation where I work on things that aren’t work work but are still work, yay! Happy Mon.. Tuesday (!!) everyone!
woooooo chile I can tell I've been *extra* enjoying my time off (aka being lazy as hail) cuz this morning in bed, I went to stretttttchhhhh and caught a whole ass tricep cramp 😟 sis had to breeeaaathhhee through it 🌬️ anyone else not really know what to do with themselves the weird week between Christmas and New Years? 🙋🏽♀️ That's me. Eating all the sweets and literally attempting to physiologically mesh with my couch 🙃 'Tis the season 🛋️🍰 p.s this is my literal bed. it was the first piece of furniture I made, gimme a break.
Christmas Eve! I can still feel the anxious excitement that lived in my little bones as a kid. We weren’t a “open 1 prezzie” on Xmas eve kinda fam so I had the crushing task of waiting until the morn 🎁 But that didn’t stop me from sleeping in cause, sleep 😴 Although this year (and every year for that matter) is a bit different, I can still feel the same excitement starting to creep in. Merry Christmas Eve friends! 🎄 PC @beccadutkiewicz
I'm officially on holiday break 🥳 My day started off with a trip to norfolk and buying donuts from @naasbakery then living room twerking to my current jam "BS" by @jheneaiko soooo you could say I'm off to a pretty good start What you twerkin (or workin) to today? 📷 @abril1926 🕯️ @balaypahulay
I love the opportunity to make custom peggies. It pulls me out of the (sometimes) mundane task of it all. It feels like taking a step back and rehumanizing myself 🤖 cause I'm just a girl with a drill, after all. I've made circles, hexagons, and triangles. I've stained, I've painted, I've meticulously hand drawn designs 👩🏽🎨 I've made large peggies and small ones. I've made leaning ones, standing ones and folding ones. All that to say, I'd love the chance to make you your own custom peggie. I'm open for commissions for February + March so if you've been wanting a cutie custom peggie OR any custom carpentry OR custom furniture, slide in those DMs, ya dig? 😘 PC @jars.of.dust
Zayna is here to wish you all a Happy Winter Solstice + Great Conjunction! As Jupiter + Saturn come together in Aquarius, the Universe is prompting us to expand our frequency 🌟 by activating our crown chakra and third eye! We're talking a manifestation + wisdom cocktail baby! Now is the time to do some serious manifesting for the year to come. Focus on what you want/have and not the absence of those things. Write down your goals. Meditate. There's your lil dose of baby witchery. Are you hyped on the conjunction??
T minus one week people! Are you ready? Y'all know I been feeling extra grinchy this year.. I don't know if it's because I'm single 🥳 or if it's because this year I *finally* am not forced to decorate my house😅 Either way, you'll find scant xmas decor decking my halls. That doesn't mean I can't live vicariously through these holiday peggies! I mean COME ON with those cutie bottlebrush pine trees! 🌲 Plus, I don't have to be responsible for cleaning it all up afterwards 🤘🏽SCORE Is your house decked the fuck out??? PC @beccadutkiewicz
So I'm going back the the DMV again today 😂 Luckily, I made 2 appointments back in November jussssst in case. For reasons unbeknownst to me, I could only update my license yesterday and will have to register my bike today 😐 sheesh Anyhow, here's a reminder that peggies make for a cute craft show or retail display! This specific peggie is a 3ft by 6ft *hinged* freestanding pegboard. I think @emotionmadevisible jewelry looks stunning all perched up on there 😍 Would a display like this catch your eye?? PC @emotionmadevisible
Going to the DMV today 🥴 I have my paperwork finished already so let's hope it's smooth sailing ⛵ They seem to have all the measures in place. They require that you make an appointment which means no waiting in lines 👏🏽 Could it be possible that Covid may have improved the efficiency of the DMV?? 😱 I hope so, for my sanity. When's the last time you made it through the 5th circle of hell that is the Dept of Motor Vehicles?
Ho Ho Holy shit. It's the middle of December already! That means we only have a fortnight left in 2020. Thank the Gods. I'll admit I'm realllllyyy trying to avoid uttering the phrase "2021 is MY year!" Lest I jinx this fresh start Show of hands ✋🏽: How many of you proclaimed 2020 as "MY YEAR!" just to be slapped with a whole ass pandemic? 🙋🏽♀️🙋🏽♀️🙋🏽♀️🙋🏽♀️🙋🏽♀️ PC: @emmyryon via Etsy
It's the last full week before Christmas, can you believe?? Ok well I'm sure most of you can but I am clearly incredulous. This week I'll be cranking out as many peggies as humanly possible and trying not to panic over the amount of shit that needs doing 🙃 yay holidaysss Until we can all take a collective post-holiday deep breath, I'll be thinking of you 😘 I'm hoping this Monday finds you prepped and ready for a productive (or not!) week 🤙🏽
Greetings from southbound Highway 12 🤙🏽 I’m headed to Ocracoke Island, the southern most island of the Outer Banks. It’s been foreverrrrr since I’ve been there. From what I remember, it’s a cutie little spot. It’s been nice to escape the Christmas chaos and enjoy some beach bonfires 🔥 and saltwater🏄🏽♀️ Ahhh the simple things. Whatcha got going on on this Friday? ✌🏽 Thank you @abundantaffirmations for this festive #peggieinthewild
Ok I'll admit as much as I hate the cold, I sure do love a beanie 😂 dirty hair? crazy root situation? problem solved. This one is a waffle knit cutie from @bottlecraftvirginiabeach Another go to? My @northendbagco bag 😍 I've been sporting this 76th street for yearsss and it's only gotten more beautiful as it ages (kinda like me 😜) As a small biz owner, I try my hardest to support other small businesses. It's so important to shop small biz, especially when the pandemic has caused so many to go under. Your purchase helps put food on the table and keep a roof over heads. It doesn't just help fill up some rich asshole's Leer jet 😑 I pledge to continue shopping small and hope you'll do the same. If you're busting to spend some coins, @equinoxcoffeeco will be hosting a holiday market this Saturday 12/12 (ODU location: 4416 Monarch Way, Norfolk) where you can catch my sister @kyusi_va selling her famous baked goods along with other amazing vendors including @beastbellybooks_magic
Sharing another Christmas-y peggie cause ‘tis the season and whatnot (Still flinch when I hear Christmas tunes 🎶 by the way) This peggie is a 24x24 beaut and has now taken second place 🥈 as the most popular size in the shop. Right now the 36x48 reigns supreme. It’s interesting how orders come in waves. But I suppose that’s the nature of all things 🌊 📷 @angiejanine
Well it finally hit "cold as fuck" in the shop yesterday. One of these days I need to do a reel showing you the hilarious amount of layers I wear to keep warm. Basically every other place around got snow but us in VB and I'm so glad 😅 cause y'all know I don't fucks wit snow 🙅🏽♀️ no no no snow snow snow The temp is still cold af today but looking like it's gonna get back in the 50s eventually. I'll take it. What's your favorite way to warm up on cold days? I'll go first: a hot n steamy shower 🧖🏽♀️
Mondays feel like Wednesdays when you work during the weekend 🤷🏽♀️ I planned on not working.. but... Anyway, how cute is this Christmas #peggieinthewild from my dear friend @k.delacy I'll admit, this little gnomey has me feelin some type of way 😍 maybe its the gnomey in me that loves the gnomey in them... Sidenote: have you guys ever seen Gnomeo & Juliet? It's the cutest and the soundtrack is Elton John heavy 👌🏽 For the record, the closest I came to decorating for the holidays this year was putting fleece reindeer sheets on my bed last night #winning <insert some witty comment about freaks/fleece/sheets> Happy Monday friends
That Friday v i b e It's a bit of a weird week with me taking a mini vacay in the middle of it buttttt I'm still stoked its Friday 😅 Mostly because I get to pick up my *motorcycle* 🏍️ today!! Yeahhh you read that right 😎 I'm finally fulfilling a lifelong dream 🥳 cause I'm 32 and thought "Why the fuck not?" and didn't have a good answer. I consider it a radial act of self love to fulfill a dream like this 🖤 Have the best Friday friends! I hope you can make time for a little dreaming today 😘
This Grinch is dipping her toes into Christmas, but only for the sake of bringing you festive eye candy 😍 Just like this peggie, I’m not quite ready for the season. I still have some warming up to do🧣 Thank you for this festive #peggieinthewild @beccadutkiewicz
Greetings from Rodanthe 🤙🏽 I slipped down south on Monday after the Gather install to catch some waves and enjoy a few days of r&r. Speaking of waves: it was fucking firinggggg yesterday! I haven't seen it go off like this (in person) in forever. It was a glory to witness.. from the beach cause it was too heavy for this lady 😳 I hope your Wednesday is as swell as mine 🌊
When your friend and queen of ceramics requests a custom peggie, you deliver.⠀ ⠀ I've been a fan of Mallorie @jars.of.dust since she was selling her wares at the local markets. She was so rad with her gorgeous pottery and stylish hats. I remember thinking to myself "She's so fucking cool"⠀ ⠀ Spoiler alert: Not only is she proper cool, she's a bit of a weirdo too 😍⠀ ⠀ This year she's teaming up with @igorscustom to bring you these cute ornaments. Bonus: Igor is painting some of the ornaments with profane words 🤩 But you better get while the gettins good bc these babies won't last!⠀ ⠀ Thanks for letting me make this fun little triangle peggie for you, Mal! And for capturing this cutie #peggieinthewild for me, you da best!
Is it weird that it feels like a Friday to me? Probably because I worked through the weekend and will be off the next few days... what is time anyway? 🤔 Today, Mary and I are headed to Midlothian to install custom pegboard panels at the new @gatherrva I'll be posting some behind the scenes footage in my stories, so be sure to check it out. Then it's back to the 757 to switch vehicles and head down south to the Outer Banks for a few days 🤙🏽 I hope your Monday feels a little like a Friday too! Thanks to Megan for this #peggieinthewild (if you're on IG, DM me so I can tag you!)
A celebration of binge eating 🍗🥧 Let's call Thanksgiving what it is. No need to subscribe to the idea that Natives and colonizers broke bread and were besties. We all know what really happened #genocide So I'm celebrating what this holiday is really about: attempting to avoid screaming at my racist family members and a disgusting amount of eating my feelings 🙃 I think it really comes down to this one question: Are you team HAM or team TURKEY? Sound off in the comments! Happy Day of Feasting friends.
I know I know, she cute. This is the Vanity peggie. I named her that because she's the perfect size to perch on your desk, dresser, or (yup) vanity 😜 I have mine filled with hair ties, essential oils, jewelry, perfume, inspirational postcards and @elizabethwarren merch. Ya know.. the important stuff. She's the smallest peggie in my shop, coming in at 12 inches wide by 18 inches tall. She comes with those 3 cute little baby shelves, 6 pegs for the shelves, and 5 additional pegs for hanging whatever your heart desires. You can find her in my @etsy shop by hitting the link in my bio ✨
Can we talk about versatility?? My favorite feature of my peggies is the infinite ways that they can be used. Take this beaut for example. Peep the custom shelf at the bottom used for a standing laptop desk 😍 Thank you for this #peggieinthewild Luz! PC @laluzbodyalign
Good morning my dear pals! It's another muthafuckin Fridayyy 🥳 Can you tell I'm excited?? Today, I'm cranking out some peggies (naturally) and trying to stay warm in the shop 🙃 Feeling super grateful for having proper work wear to keep me warm and keep me safe! Shout out to @dovetailworkwear for making work wear for women that *actually* look good and wear well! Not gonna lie though, looking forward to trading in my overalls for sweatpants later 😋 Have the best Friday!
Let me regale you with of the tale of the 24"x24" peggie. They used to be one of the least popular sizes in my shop. For some reason, people weren't feeling this 2ft square beaut 🤷🏽♀️ That is, until Etsy featured this size on their website and tv commercials. Now it seems to be one of the most popular! She's the perfect size for nearly any space and as you can see by this #peggieinthewild she can hold a fair amount of shit. That's what we call a muthafuckin ✨GLOW UP ✨ Go ahead girl 💁🏽♀️ PC @elisemclaren_
Yesterday, I spent the first half of the day putting together a custom storage cabinet for my neighbors @northendbagco⠀ ⠀ The ask: a four door, 7 foot long maple cabinet with a middle shelf and reclaimed wood for the top. Not to brag but I think I nailed it 😜⠀ ⠀ Swipe to see the process of the build:⠀ ⠀ Step1️⃣: Build the cabinet carcass. Last week, I built two separate 3.5 ft cabinets for ease of transport and to provide additional middle support for the top.⠀ ⠀ Step 2️⃣: Deliver! Once the carcasses were delivered to North End Bag Co, I attached them together to create the 7ft cabinet base.⠀ ⠀ Step 3️⃣: Install face frame. I installed the frame using pocket holes and wood glue. This allows an attachment point for the door hinges⠀ ⠀ Step 4️⃣: Install doors. I installed the cabinet doors using concealed hinges and slapped a sexy brass knob on them⠀ ⠀ Step 5️⃣: Reclaimed wood top! Aaron had some boards that were original to the building he is in. We utilized those for the top of the cabinets and I think they turned out fucking dope.⠀ ⠀ What a fun build! Thank you🙏🏽 @northendbagco for commissioning me for this piece.⠀ ⠀ If y'all don't already follow these Bag Gurus, go check em out and buy yourself the last bag you'll ever need.⠀
Ummm I'm feeling blindsided because Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK WITAF What is time even?! Feeling extra thankful for all my #blessings this year and honestly fucking excited to get down on some turkey and mashed potatoes 🍗 Are you feeling snuck up on by Tgiving too? PC @themarysarge
