(A first blog post on a fresh new website feels a little daunting, let’s just get that out of the way.)
Hey! Hola! Welcome! & howdy! If you’ve ended up here by way of my Happy Brittany days, I am glad to have you back & thanks for sticking around. If you’ve ended up here through another avenue, I’m glad you are here & I hope you find something meaningful or enjoyable. I know you couldn’t have arrived here by accident because Viklund is really hard to spell unintentionally (even I am guilty of including the added “c” for the first 2-ish months of my relationship with my husband, before I took Viklund on as my own) so… thanks for being here on purpose.
When thinking through what I wanted in a website & brand, it was really important to me to have a space to blog. And it actually makes a ton of sense given the fact that I identify as a maker. Enter VIKLUND MADE. Simply put- a place for all things made.
The art of making has become second nature to me. I see opportunities to make something multiple times a day. On a blank sheet of paper. With ingredients in my pantry. In an empty room. I even see non-tangible opportunities to make things. Like making my mind up about how I choose to feel in a given moment. Or making life a little easier with an organizational strategy. Or, making my skin happy with a practiced skincare routine. I believe that making a life for oneself (especially a dream life) involves the ability to make something of both the tangible & intangible.
Take a look around. Learn a little more about me. Treat yo’self. Or drop me a line to let me know what you think, why you’re here, or share something you’re hoping to make or learn (maybe I can help?).
I am so excited & proud of this new space for my work. & I couldn't begin this journey without a virtual shout out to my incredible brand & web designer Mattie Tiegreen of Green Tie Studio. Ya’ll, we spent MONTHS dreaming & scheming up Viklund Made. I’m kind of an all-over-the-place human (you know the type) & the way Mattie was able to take all of my thoughts, dreams & ideas & string them into this beautiful, cohesive brand is pure MAGIC. She is incredible.
Welcome to Viklund Made. Something tells me if you’ve found your way here & read this post, you’re in the business of making too, so I’m glad to have you along.
