Writing and Images from the heart...

Life in Color!

Through my limited time of having my business in the digital world I’ve been going back-and-forth as to whether or not have website or a separate blog, or combine the two, etc. etc. Back and fourth, back and fourth, driving everyone around me insane with my tornado of creative block and indecisiveness. When I started moving forward my business I thought to myself “Hmm… Why would anybody want to have two separate websites? I don’t understand…’ Well, let me tell you now, I understand. Between my different portfolios, and trying to get my artwork shown, It just made complete sense for me to have space dedicated just for image viewing.

I didn’t come to this decision easily though. After a 2 hour long drive home from a night away at the beach, I probably drove my husband insane by listing all the things that I wasn’t happy with. Everything from my logo, to my website, to my inability to work the way I would like. You name it, I talked about it.

Then Sheryl came on. ‘It’s not having what you want. It’s wanting what you’ve got.’

Then I wasn’t mad anymore.

I am SO fortunate to be able to do what I love to teach the most awesome kids around. So its stressful. So I’m up late most nights. So my kids didn’t sleep. So I didn’t get to clean the bathroom. SO WHAT. Life is grand. Life is good.

I hope you enjoy the NEW and the new

Then there was color. But which one?! THERE’S JUST TOO MANY!

So many of you who know me know that I have commitment issues when it comes to color. One is either too much of this, or too little of that. I have a complete wardrobe of black, white, tan, and navy blue. I just constantly feel just like Umbridge in her pink room. But hey, at least SHE can pick a color and own it. Anyway, this year as part of my New Years resolution for my photography and design – I know how ridiculous this will sound – was that I would try to allow color into my creative life. Well. I’ve done it. One color. Turquoise. Because it brings me peace. And makes me feel like I am at the ocean. All day. And now it’ll be part of my business and branding as well. I’m one happy lady. 🙂
