Setbacks, interruptions and creativity

So here we are, another Monday and a blog that I have penciled into my diary as #The100DayProject Update. But here’s the kicker, I don’t have an update. I don’t have new pieces to share or new learnings about the medium I was hoping to improve. I DO, though, have quiet compassion for an artist and businesswoman overtaken by the day-to-day.

Plan the perfect 1st anniversary

Time has flown by since our wedding last October and I can’t believe we’re getting closer and closer to celebrating our first anniversary! The wedding was such a special day for us it’s hard to imagine how to do it, and our first year of marriage, justice. I want something that will transport us back to the feelings of that day, but that also celebrates how far we’ve come and the new memories we’ve made together.

So, I got to brainstorming and have come up with my perfect formula for planning an extra-special first-anniversary celebration. I figure there are four key elements! Food, activity, gifts and a bit (or a lot) of sentimentality.

7 Days In Scotland – Our Photo Story

This past week we’ve been off adventuring in Scotland! Instead of my usual blogs, I wanted to share some photos from our trip and save them as a memory of such a special time. My father-in-law is here with us doing his first big overseas trip in over 25 years and one of his top requests was to see Scotland – a place he’s never been and always wanted to see.

I set about planning the perfect road trip and was over the moon when I discovered Watch Me See, a Scotland travel blog. Kathi’s The Best of Scotland in One Week (A complete 7-Day Itinerary) was PERFECT and I’m pleased to report a total winner of a trip. My father-in-law had a blast and I was so happy to have an expert in my pocket every step of the way.

Synesthesia art: The perfect bridesmaid gift

Having these amazing women around me, projecting calm and taking a no-nonsense approach to problem-solving, kept me on track and made any potential problems disappear before they even began.

I spent so long scrolling through etsy looking for the perfect gifts for everyone involved in our wedding. And it was such a challenge to find the perfect present for such a diverse group of people on such a special day for us all!

This beautiful piece of art brought me to tears. The way she describes the piece, each color and splash is something different.

I’m in awe– I will be back!!
