Today, I’m excited to feature one of my favorite people to follow on Instagram– for all kinds of inspiration, but especially for creativity and home decor inspiration! Aubry Bennion is the creative side-hustler behind Hello Maypole and I think you’re going to love what she has to say.
You can find Aubry on Instagram at @aubryeliz.
Why is creating important to you?
Creating is in my bones – it’s not negotiable. I grew up a the feet of a creative mother – at the dinner table that was transformed into a production machine with glue gun strings and fabric scraps… always followed by Saturdays at craft shows (we’ve elevated them to “markets” now, but they’re craft shows forever in my mind!) Beyond the “crafting” influence I had in my home growing up, every woman in my family is a master at her craft. Artists, weavers, bakers, seamstresses. They’re not just “creative” or “handy”… they’re m a s t e r s. If I’m going to be a Bennion woman, I’ve got a lot of learning left to do.
Would you label yourself as “creative”?
My mom wasn’t the only creative one in my home. My dad threw pottery in his free time and later became a photographer. My brothers were all artists and photographers as well. Creating was encouraged in our home growing up, nearly above all else.
