Excitement, Adventure & Exploring!

NEVER STOP EXPLORING

As some of you may know I work full time as a Graphic Designer at a furniture store called EDITO, as well as working on my art, blog & design for Clouds of Colour. EDITO is SUCH an exciting new business in Nelson – filled with international flavour, beautiful furniture & homewares. It is suuch a creative environment & works perfectly in with my already jammed packed life – which I totally enjoy and cant get enough of.
Last night I had a phone call from my bosses asking if I would like to go on a buying trip for the store …..wait for it…..to Los Angeles!!! My reply… Ohhhh YES!! Followed by a lot of dancing around the room with excitement.
Its amazing – when you set goals and dreams and then they become a reality your whole soul is overwhelmed with emotions. Im big on setting dreams, its what moves us forward and when we achieve them – well I cant even explain my feeling right now – just the biggest WOW!
So guys – Im off for the next 2 weeks on an adventure of a lifetime. It will be quiet on the blog but Ill be sharing fun creative images on Instagram & Facebook so you can follow along & see whats happening.

My words of advise for you all would be…
♥ NEVER STOP EXPLORING
♥ NEVER STOP CREATING
These two sentences are what get me to each amazing point. Life is beautiful!

Moving

It’s been suuuuch a whirlwind crazy week! A few months ago mum and I decided doing up a house would be a fun adventure together – so here we are. Over the past week we have packed and lifted and are slowly putting everything into it’s right place. It is crazy how much ‘stuff’ you accumulate over the years. I’m excited to share our journey as we do up the house and as you can imagine, I have hundreds of super amazing ideas!

Yaaay for my word ‘adventure’ this year! I hope you’re all having a memory making & exciting week,xobec


A new look

Bec Brown - summer fields

Its happening. A fresh new look for 2014 on Clouds of Colour blog.
I have had the same header on this blog since starting it 2 years ago – its been amazing but part of blogging is it changing as you do. So I’m excited to be stripping back the overall layout and look of Clouds of Colour. With more black & white, space, easier navigation and a bigger focus on the content of art & photography.

Its so cool how a change like this can make me even more excited about creating new content.
If you have a spare moment, I’d love to hear your thoughts on a few questions:
♦ What are your favourite posts on Clouds of Colour?
♦ What would you like to see more of?
– Art, DIY’s, Photography, New Zealand, Etsy & Blogging tips
♦ Do you like seeing the inspiration behind artwork?

Thank you so much beautiful readers!
