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!
PS: My ETSY Shop will be closed until Im back. You can still place orders & they will be shipped ASAP =)
Another week filled with art, photography, work and walks on the beach with Frankie (whos going through a crazy chewing stage. At the moment the lounge is filled with ripped newspaper!).
Last night I went to the opening of a very exciting new venture happening in Nelson that I’m involved with – called the Little Beehive Co-Op. It includes a HUGE amount of creativity, artyness and a very cool space you’ll be able to visit if you’re in town…full post coming in the next few weeks!
Article: These photos are gorgeous – Portraits of India’s Holy Men. I love the colours & how real each portrait feels.
Video: New favourite song + a cute video clip! ‘Falling’ by HAIM
Quote: ‘You can mimic the result, but not the creativity’ – Sonya Teclai. Ha! Perfect for all the artists out there =)
I wanted to introduce you all properly to the latest member of our family… Frankie!
He is a beautiful little black lab (we think he has a mix of something else but not sure what) and he is just delightful. Sooo well behaved already.
We got him from the SPCA a few weeks ago. He had been dumped in a box on the side of the road and was then taken to the SPCA in Nelson. I cannot believe someone would leave such a gorgeous little animal like that. But on a positive note – we now have the pleasure of having him in our lives!
Here a few snaps I got of him enjoying the beach for the first time… gaahhhh SO cute!
Do you have any pets? What do you love most about having them around?
