Surrounded by Creative People

I never quite thought about it until I read these words, but it’s true. I admire almost every creative individual that I have met because they really do love life in their own creative way. I admire the gardeners for planting and giving back beauty to the world. I admire painters for painting their vision to put into feeling what you can’t put into words. I admire interior designers for spreading every day beauty into other people’s homes. I admire cookers for bringing joy by filling others bellies. I admire writers for embellishing words that ignites the imagination.

However, they are by no means the only group of people I admire. How about you?

Inspirational Words: Leura Fine

Laurel & Wolf's Founder Says Being "Normal" Is the Opposite of Success via @MyDomaine:

How true are these words? We all can’t help but want to be normal. We all want to fit in and just be one of the guys/girls. We don’t want to stick out like a sore thumb in a bad way, but maybe sometimes there’s no choice when you want to succeed. I think there’s some normalcy on the way to success, but at the same time, you’ve got to be unconventional. Outside the box. If you’re shy like me, then you know this can be a bit of a challenge. You almost can’t have success without eyes on you. At the end of the day, though, it’s all about how hungry you are to live your dreams, and then normal really becomes a setting on a washing machine.

I really enjoyed reading Domino’s interview with Leura Fine, founder of Laurel & Wolf. It was inspiring and neat to get a little bit of that background story.

What does normal mean to you?

Inspirational Words: Mahatma Gandi

These are words I try to live by. After all, what’s the point of believing in something if you don’t live it. Of course, there are circumstances where you’re trying to reach that point, but that’s another story. You get what I’m saying, don’t you?

Inspirational Words: New Year’s

Happy New Year’s!



I don’t really believe in New Year’s resolution. It doesn’t seem to work for me. I think I generally create a list that says here’s what you will and will not do and maybe that sets the bar a little high for me. Like trying to say I will eat better. Most of us know that we will eventually fail, right? So, what I do instead is make sure I keep trying to eat better. After all, if at first you don’t succeed, try again. So here’s a short list of what I would like to keep achieving:


Inspirational Words:


How true are these words? It’s certainly a reflective thought. I see this in myself. I love to travel and my soul wants to wander. I love to create and my soul fluctuates with my emotions. Color makes me happy and my soul wants to soar. Too much rain and being indoors too long makes me a little depressed. When you think about things in this way, it makes sense that you would want to design your home to make your soul happy and feel inspired. After all, it’s where you spend a lot of time.
