One of my (many, and growing) New Year’s resolutions is to take more time away from the computer. I do freelance work during the day, and then I do blog stuff at night. I would like to take time away from the computer more often and do creative work with my hands. Whether that’s baking, drawing, calligraphy or something new like knitting or weaving, I am craving a slightly less digital life.
Instagram is still one of my biggest sources of inspiration, and I love seeing what some of my favorite makers and designers are up to. It’s refreshing to me to see inside other people’s studios and creative minds! These artists also do a fantastic job of marketing themselves on Instagram in a really lovely, non-sales-y way. If you have a un-digital goal like mine, perhaps following a few of these people is exactly what you need! // susannah

French artist Amelie Mancini (@ameliemancini) makes gorgeous hand-carved wooden spoons and printed textiles. I’m dying to have one of those spoons! She also shows gorgeous peeks inside her studio from time to time.
Lindsay Emery of Suite One Studio (@suiteonestudio) shows off her stunning ceramics work on her Instagram feed. As someone who has never been talented with clay, it’s awesome to learn about clay and glazes from Lindsay.
I love seeing what beautiful new stuff woodmaker Arielle Alasko (@arielealasko) is working on in her studio. She makes gorgeous headboards, cutting boards, hand-carved spoons and more. (I love that her pets make frequent appearances too!)
The embroidery of Australia textile artist Liz Payne (@lizlpayne) is something I aspire to. Sewing of any kind requires such patience, and I really admire that about each sneak peek Liz shares.
Anna Rifle Bond (@annariflebond) has long been one of my favorite designers. Her shop Rifle Paper Co. is my go-to source for paper goods. I love seeing what goes on behind the scenes, from watercolors and sketches to photoshoots and new products.
Floral designer Nicolette Camille (@nicamille) showcases the beauty of flowers of all kinds in her stunning arrangements.
