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 4.20.15

image

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…
