Kuschelzeit ❤️ Momente in denen man einfach mal die Seele baumeln lassen kann. Ich liebe solche Tage an denen man einfach mal abschalten kann. Die Zeit verfliegt, was aber gar nicht schlimm ist. Die Ruhe, die liebe zu den Tieren, die Zeit die man investiert um es sich selbst mal recht zu machen, es sich gut gehen zu lassen und den Rest der Welt einfach mal auszublenden. Ein unglaubliches Gefühl, welches ich meiner Meinung nach viel zu selten verspüre. Man ist immer unterwegs, für alles und jeden 24/7 erreichbar. Solche Tage wie heute zeigen mir um so mehr wie wichtig Zeit für sich selbst ist. Man genießt die Natur und das Wetter spielt mit. Es war zwar sehr kalt, aber trotzdem wunderschön. Das Highlight war der Besuch im Esel Gehege. Zeit, die einem niemand mehr nehmen kann. Bitte versucht mehr Zeit für euch selbst einzurichten. Was war euer Highlight am heutigen Tag?
Meet our Operations Manager, Steph!
From the time of her initial involvement to this very post (and beyond!), Steph has been a wonderfully instrumental member of the Arts Market team! Her thoughtful nature is equally matched by her helpful and professional insight...and to top it all off, she's also a multi-talented artist herself, with much admiration towards the arts community in TO! .
Visit any one of our 3 locations and you're sure to spot her @scotchryeshop booth, featuring handmade necklaces, earrings, and much more! While being a creatively adventurous person, Steph also seeks adventure in the outdoors, having recently set her travel bug sights on some of Canada's greatest national wild wonders (incl. the Rockies & the sandstone cliffs of P.E.I.!)
Steph's genuinely lovely spirit and wonderful spark of energy has and continues to make Arts Market a great environment for all! Visit our College St. Location to say hello and definitely bring a furry friend with you (Steph is a true lover of all animals, especially doggos!)
Wild friendships 🐢
Making it to 100 years as a human will be a massive achievement. This beautiful fella however will outlive me by a long shot! The average life span of a giant tortoise is 150 years!
You can’t help feel a sort of humility around them. They may be slow and ungainly but they are incredibly beautiful and durable! 💚
After sliding on the roads trying to get to work, I came home in a bad mood.
I can usually pull myself out of a sad mood — I like to remind myself that tomorrow WILL come and that my mood can’t last forever.
But I still have an opportunity when it comes to being mad.
I say opportunity instead of problem because this year my goal is being Intentional with the words I use — ESPECIALLY to describe myself.
Long story short, I came home angry trying to calm myself down and I saw my super cute dogs looking at me.
I took I nice long and deep breath, and started to remember there’s more important things in life than crappy road conditions!
Moral of the story?
Seeing dogs in sweaters reminds me to take a breath and enjoy the world around — even if it’s snowy outside 😂
How are you choosing to enjoy today?
All animals deserve compassion, care and respect. All animals deserve to live. I don’t need to convince anyone that making a decision of love is one of the best things that happened to me- physically, spiritually, and mentally. I just want to show people the “why” and at least spark a bit of interest so they learn about veganism! Even one small change and one small step is huge towards a better world for you, for the animals, for our planet. ✨ #GoVegan ❤️
Har jobbet overtid denne helgen med verdens søteste lille kollega🐯
Sweaty Sunday over here 💪
No trudging through the snow.
No cleaning off my car. 🚗
No freezing my butt off running into the gym.
Got my 40 minutes in right from the comfort of my dining room (aka my gym). And man did I earn my shower, no one says you have to go to the gym to get in a good workout.
And if they do their lying. 🤷♀️
