Wood Art Life in Minneapolis,MN with @projectsbyerik. Follow our work together @vevangmpls
Mixed up a batch of milk paint for the spoons going to @lightgreyartlab. I didn’t get a chance to take photos of the final product before bringing them over to the gallery yesterday. I’ll get one once they’re on display. Can wait to see them with everyone else’s work on January 26th at the opening.
This assemblage just went off to its forever home. The woman who commissioned me to make it, brought me all the hand tools and paint stick. They were from her family’s basement, a home they recently sold. She was beyond thrilled with the final piece and that was the best part of the project. Bringing happiness into the world is priceless. #grateful
Last fall @projectsbyerik and I entered a local contest “Made in North” hosted by @mspmag and we were chosen as a finalist in the home category. Then they featured our spoons on a local tv show yesterday!! Thank you @mspmag for recognizing our work. We are grateful to be part of a great community that appreciates hand made local work.
This little family of spoons have just left the studio for their television debut. Tomorrow morning on Fox 9 Morning Buzz with @alishops at 9:30ish. Allison will be talking about them as part of the Made In North article we were a part of in Minneapolis St Paul magazine. #vevangmpls#vevang

Prepping for NYE! Sitting around the Raclette grill has become our tradition thanks to @vanessa.klaes , the awesome intern from Germany we had the pleasure of hosting back in 2012. Dankeschön for introducing us to this wonderful tradition!!
I wish our tree could stay up all year. I love looking at it!!

Christmas Day pasta by this guy. Aren’t we lucky?
Merry Christmas! Our cute little tree from my folks cute little farm in WI. My sweet parents cut and delivered this tree to us as we were in over our heads in holiday sales. ( which was good, and we learned a bunch) looking forward to 2018 and brighter longer days. Sköl!
And a new IG account for us @vevang_mpls to better represent what erik and I do together as a team. I’ll still be here show you little bits of my day.
