Monday Morning Inspiration 6.1.15

I love art displays with mixtures of wrapped canvases and large mats. I have compiled a small collection of pictures from magazines I want to put in my closet. I find fun in thrifting pretty frames too so I can’t wait to have enough where I can start hanging them…

This quote is very real for me as I’ve experienced someone that seems like they.just.cannot  compliment my work. This is a person I share projects with because I am passionate about it, not to brag. I share genuine interests in what my friends do so I expect the same. Maybe that’s my problem and no….everyone won’t like your work but it’s really odd when some people never have anything nice to say. When the compliment is backhanded or laced with shade. When their replies are dry and vague…sometimes I debate even sharing with them. I’ve had people say they can do what I do when it comes to party styling because they don’t want to pay for your services and then their party happens…..you realize they can’t. I’ve been told “I’m creative too” when someone didn’t want my services and then kept asking my opionion and wanting ideas. Thought you’re also creative? Not as if I need to feel validations because my client’s approval is all that matters. However I am content with my womanhood enough to share joys in what brings happiness to friends/associates.  I can compliment hair, outfits, portfolios and not think twice about it. I will never understand people who may like something but won’t let YOU know it. It’s always going to be someone bitter about something so they refuse to give you kudos.  Don’t let those people stop your show.

Monday Morning Inspiration 4.27.15

Good morning. Hope your weekend was a good one. I was so excited my Bucks finally won a game against the Bulls. Let’s hope they win at least one more tonight. The weekend was rather cold but sunny. The trees are starting to bud and flowers are popping up everywhere. On the side of my house are areas to plant flowers. Though I may hold off on planting this year, I am constantly thinking of ways to decorate the patio. Have any of you started outdoor decorating yet?

I absolutely love this pink and red fun space by Thibaut. If you have a covered area, consider hanging a large print to add color….

Monday Morning Inspiration 4.20.15

Hope your weekend was a beautiful one. This week I have a collaboration/diy post using MagnaMagic that I can’t wait to share. I used their magnetic chalkboard paint for a client and my own home. I noticed the trees are budding here which brought a smile to my face on this gloomy cool Monday. The weather is a contrast from Friday where we had a teasing of 76 summer sunny temps. So this post is filled with what Spring should look like. I hope it inspires you a bit…

Monday Inspiration 3.9.14

I don’t know about you but I only like daylight savings time this time of year. I live for long days and since Milwaukee is having a peak at Spring this week …you know….the days that feel Spring to us since we’ve been so cold (upper 40s and low 50s)…I am finding myself so excited and anxious in the morning which is typically rare for me…

The only thing I don’t like is how dark it is when I wake up. I can’t wait till the light floods in like this above…
