#yycLCL August 2017

It always amazes me how clean lines, simple images, and the beauty of nature can ignite the creative mind. There is something fundamentally elemental and intrinsically beautiful in the creation process. Creativity asks that you show up and give of yourself; to lean in to the liminal spaces, to bring all of yourself, and maybe to discover a part of you that was there all along.

This photo captures a still moment in amongst the busyness; the busyness of creative preparation. Busyness leads to a place of marvellous chaos where creativity is at its most frenetic; and yet my soul is at ease.

Wendi Ryan’s Harmony Grace Designs specializes in baby and toddler accessories—baby booties, infinity scarf bibs, and stuffed toys—sustainably designed and made from locally sourced materials.

Find her at Calgary’s upcoming edition of Etsy: Made in Canada, September 22 and 23, 2017 at the Genesis Centre (10, 7555 Falconridge Blvd. NE ), and online at Instagram, Facebook, and Etsy.
