Confession time. I have been really slacking at writing this post. It is hard to find inspiration every week. And I don’t like to read writing that is clearly forced due to some sort of internal commitment. So instead of committing to writing every Monday I am committing to learn something new, capture the moments that mean the most to me, and grow so that my writing is relevant (at least to me.) :)
So, if I had to pick one thing I have been learning to share with you it would be pushing your mind into a space where it can be creative.
The great thing about Pinterest is that is shows you that thousands of people all over the world are reinventing with genius. People are pushing themselves creatively to be original, even if that originality stems from an idea they have already seen.
The downfall of Pinterest is that it has become a crutch to many creative minds including myself.
I have found that dividing my time between exploring the worlds of Pinterest and the like and sitting down with a pencil and staying there long enough to push my mind to put an original spin on something is the best way to produce quality creative work. I am sure this is up for much debate:)
My week at a glance:
Celebrated and hosted my best friend’s wedding shower back in my hometown:
Used the mother of the bride’s wedding dress as decor:
While I was at home I painted my moms fireplace with Annie Sloan paint and will post pics later this week.
Also, I have not had any time to actually capture the after photos of the homes I have been working on. I have 5 houses worth of photos coming your way soon:)
Meditation for the week:
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.
