Alocasia Kris Indoor Elephant Ear plant is a wonderful plant to keep around your home. It’s easy to care for and easy on the eyes. With just a little TLC, this distinctive looking plant will be the conversation piece of your living room.
If you follow me on instagram + watch my insta-stories, then you probably know of my love for plants. I have quite the collection of indoor & outdoor plants. Taking care of my plants and watching them grow really brings me soo much joy and has taught me a lot in the process.
My plants have also been a huge influence in my artwork as well. So I figured, why not share a little more of one of my passions on my blog!
Tips for care of the Alocasia Kris Plant:
In this Plant Diaries series, I will also be sharing from my art journal, paintings and products that I have created inspired by my plant babies.
I added this abstract Alocasia Kris print that I created to my PAOM shop. I thought this print would look so lovely as silk scarf. What do you think?
[[[PAOM is a third party vendor that I use. When you order something from this store, it is made to order and comes directly from PAOM. The order takes about 10-14 days to arrive.]]]
And one weekend, this little guy was hopping all around my garden driving the dogs crazy. I was able to snap a few pictures of it (I was kind-of obsessing over the patterns on its body. Nature is so cool!). He (or she) really loved this plant.
StudiOH, Shoppe! Labor Day Sale is going on and there's still time for you to snag up some great deals! I wanted to pop in over here, on my blog to share with you some of my favorite items from the sale section on StudiOH, Shoppe!
Also, I wanted to share a bit more about these leather goods. It has been made clear to me a couple of times now that people don't realize that I am the one making these leather goods you always see me sportin'/here me talking about. I sell them, but I also design + make everything in my shoppe, myself. A true labor of love and work of art!
I buy the leather hides, paint them, cut them down and turn them into fun + functional accessories/work of arts for you to wear. Each piece is hand painted, hand-sewn and made with LOTS of love, here in my Atlanta, GA studiOH.
Each clutch/tassel is truly a one of a kind creation, with the patterns and brush strokes varying from product to product. Most items in my shop are offered/made in a limited quantity, Once they are sold out, they are gone.
Some popular patterns and certain leather hides will come back and continue to sell on a seasonal basis. But if you see something you love, get it while you can! There is no guarantees. (I get my leather hides from a local supplier, I buy what they have in stock. The colorful leathers are seasonal, and certain colors are only available certain times of the year).
I am also available to do custom orders as well. Such as a custom clutches for a special event, or bridal clutches for your bridesmaids etc. If this is something you are interested in, email me here : Courtney@myfriendcourt.com and I will be in contact within 48 hrs.
But today, let's talk about the Labor Day sale I have going on. It's filled with some pretty amazing deals (3 pages worth of deals!) on some of my favorite items. Like this Clutch, Me - Color Block Clutch, currently on sale for $50!
And did you you see? I am donating 20% of this weekend's sales to the American Red Cross!

'Today, I am sharing with you how I setup my journal to help me be more productive. I use to be an avid agenda user (possibly even a hoarder of them) but since I am no longer teaching in the classroom, my schedule isn't as tight and rigid, so I have gravitated to a semi 'bullet journal' method of planning things.
Bullet journaling helps me focus on routines and my todo's rather than having to adhere to a tight schedule of things all day."
Bullet journaling helps me focus on routines and my todo's rather than having to adhere to a tight schedule of things all day. And that is what I am all about these days - developing and living by healthy routines. I'm good with routines, and terrible with schedules. Timelines/schedules stress me the eff out and are often met with pressure and expectations (this is what goes on in my head).
Now, this may sounds like crazy talk to you, but it is something I have learned about myself. We're all creatures of habit, so routines are healthy for everyone...but some of us are just free spirits and need to be able to move/work through the world without a set timeline. (These said people are probably also a little scattered with their thoughts -like me- so maybe this post will help them see how I organize mine.)
My Favorite Journaling Supplies :
Tips to Get started:
My first tip is to find a journal, or agenda that you love and will want to use daily. And really think about it. Ask yourself,
My second tip would be to think about the functionality of your journal and how you'll actually use it before you start writing in it.
I will use this journal for all things MyfriendCourt and StudiOH, Shoppe! I don't have it separated into two sections, though, more so by the month. To help me brainstorm monthly post, emails, goals, etc. You can see a bit below.
My third tip is to have fun with it! Especially when it comes to setting and tracking your goals in your journal. I feel more motivated when I look at my journal and it is filled with happy, positive reminders that I CAN ACHIEVE MY GOALS! Color and stickers really help with this :)
Lastly, just keep it simple. Find a way, anyway to keep yourself motivated and on track as we round out 2017. I know I still have goals to meet, and I am determined!
