Open House is a New York-based jewelry project by my friend Monika Wyndham. She’s been making these great YES Rings and asked if she could give one away to you guys. She says, “It’s one of my favorite things I’ve ever made, because of the actual positivity it stirs up in people by just seeing the word.” I love that.

So if you wanna snag a ring (it will be sized for the winner) all ya gotta do is leave a comment below and let me know in what ways you’re a YES person! I’ll let Monika pick a winner on Monday.

Amanda Jasnowski (@hokaytokay) Interview

“Like Knows Like” is a superb documentary project, founded by photographer Marije Kuiper and filmmaker Bas Berkhout. This latest episode is a profile on photographer Amanda Jasnowski, better known to the Instagram world as @hokaytokay.

I often wander around on Instagram looking for new work and this funny thing happens time and time again. I scroll down to some older photos buried deep in this person’s feed, and there’s one photo that catches my eye. So I click to leave a friendly comment, and I find the most positive uplifting encouraging message has already been posted! And it’s from Amanda.

It’s been amazing to watch Amanda’s work evolve and her following expand. If you’re a photographer (or anyone) trying to figure out how to survive doing your own thing you could learn a lot from her.
