Calling all creatives + makers + doer’s, I want to hear what your favorite part of what you do is! ⠀
To me, the absolutely best part of being a branding specialist is the inspiration process. ⠀
I can go days, weeks, even months when I’m creating something new and nothing will feel right- almost like when you try on a shoe that “mostly” fits... but you know you’ll be uncomfortable on your first long walk. ⠀
But then, one morning I’ll wake up and inspiration will smack me right in the face. Suddenly, everywhere I look, I find what I call the “pieces of the puzzles” fitting together. I’ll frantically start scribbling down notes, making Pinterest boards, and creating albums of screenshots so not to loose any of the details running wild in my head. Who else knows this feeling?! 🙋🏼♀️⠀
While it can be equally as frustrating at times when the inspirations lacking, I don’t think there’s a better feeling than when it hits. What a high, y’all. I’ve learned that the more you resist the creative rut, there further you dig yourself into it. Next time you’re there, lean into that rut. Give yourself space to open up to the energy in the world. Most importantly, TRUST that it all will come to you just when it’s meant to 💫⠀
(Ps- this may or may not be a hint of some things coming soon to KCC... 😉)
Meine heimischen Wände weisen noch den ein oder anderen kahlen Fleck auf. Da kam dieses saucoole Stranger Things Bild genau richtig🙌🏻 [Werbung, Upside Down]
Beim Stöbern auf Instagram findet man ja immer mal wieder coole neue Profile und nette Leute. So ist mir in diesem Fall über einen kleinen Umweg das Profil der lieben @sashkapris aufgefallen.
Ihre Zeichnungen sind wahnsinnig gut und dieses Bild hat es mir eben besonders angetan, sodass ich mir direkt eins ergaunert habe😏 Lieben Dank nochmal🙋🏼♂️
Schaut unbedingt mal bei ihr vorbei! Ich kann es als jemand, der kreative und abwechslungsreiche Profile mag wirklich nur empfehlen🙂👍🏻
He’s playing it cool but this is basically the equivalent of me posing next to Lizzo
We’re going to miss @helloemilyarrow in Nashville, she was such a breath of fresh air for our family and her love of words spoke to my heart. I love that my son knows the lyrics to most of her songs and found another adult who loves to read. The more bookworm role models in his life, the better!
If you have kiddos, check out her YouTube channel and stream her albums on Spotify. They’re good enough to sing along to even when your little ones aren’t around. Good luck in your new hometown, Emily!
dear love... you won't hear me telling you how to make art or what you should be feeling or thinking. there are plenty of other folks out there doing this. and we need them. they give us insights and direction. but that's not where I come from. and if there is one thing I would stand up in the middle of the town square and shout with a bull horn it would be this: only you know what's best for you. only you know what kind of art to make. only you know when it's right to give to the world and when it's right to hold back. only you know when it's fear or when it's what's true. I am not a teacher. I don't want to be a teacher. I'm a student. I sit in my office and I study. then I go out into the world and I watch, learn, and do. that is what I have to offer you - things I've learned and stuff I've been through. that's it. well, that and loyalty. I will stand by your side, I will cheer you on, and I will be here when you just need to fall apart and be held. but I won't tell you what to do because that's not my role. my role is love. truth. making. and sharing. and holding hands with you, so we both know we're not alone, and we feel braver because we're doing it together.

These days fruits and vegetables are available throughout the year. With introduction of hybrid and GM seeds, cold storage and frozen foods, no longer are we tied to seasons, when produce like peas and tomatoes were only available in winters and bottle gourds and okra (bhindi) in summers. Today, there is no clear indicators of what is the produce that is local and which ones have been imported ,from thousands of miles away,burning fossil fuels in the process ! 🌳🌿🍂🍁
This seasonal calendar is one such tool that is a poignant reminder of the original ,seasonal, local produce that is naturally suitable to digestion, with optimal nutrition. The Health Awareness Centre, Mumbai have made this beautiful calendar to support our return back to natural rhythms of living.
“If you’re remarkable, it’s likely that some people won’t
like you. That’s part of the definition of remarkable.
Nobody gets unanimous praise–ever. The best the timid
can hope for is to be unnoticed. Criticism comes to those
who stand out.”
