Happy Friday lovelies! I’m so excited for the weekend… there is so much to be done (many xmas gifts to me made)! Before I take off I want to leave you with a lovely interview I had with the delightful Summer from Design is Mine blog. I know she will inspire you just as much as she inspires me!
What is one thing that never fails to inspire you?
Portland, Oregon, the city that I live in. There is such a strong sense of community and so many creative people living here. I usually get inspired wherever I go around town, be it the fabulous farmer’s markets, the rows of art galleries, or just walking around my neighborhood. Plus, being a huge food lover, it is a great place for local, organic products and mouth-watering restaurants. Oh, how I love this place.
How are you currently incorporating your inspirations into your blog/designs/art?
Both of my blogs are fully based on my inspirations. One focuses around the art and design aspects of beautiful things that inspire me on a daily basis, and the other focuses on my deep love of baking and food in general.
What is your favorite indulgence?
Goodness, I have too many. I am quite sure that any one who knows me would have to agree that sweets are my biggest weakness. I bake them on a daily basis and make very frequent trips to local bakeries and patisseries to fulfill my constant cravings. Macarons, chocolate chip cookies, and tarts are on the top of that list.
What are three creature comforts you can’t live without?
1. Coffee and a sweet in the morning. It is a daily ritual that I need to make it through the whole day.
2. Listening to music late at night. I love putting on music loud after the kids fall asleep.
3. Alone time. Whether it’s taking a short walk by myself during the day or relaxing in the bath at night, I need at least a little of it.
Do you have a personal motto or words that you live by (quotes and song lyrics are fine too)?
I really love this song lyric by Bright Eyes: “If the world could remain within a frame like a painting on a wall, then I think we would see the beauty then and we would stand staring in awe.” It is such a nice way to look at life.
Have a great weekend everyone! I’ll see you again Monday.
