The other day I was tagged by the lovely Monica from Cake & Lilies to be part of this fun little blog hop that has been going on. And after the blog being silent for a few weeks thought this would be a fun way to get things moving once again. Plus, I get to share a few things that I’ve been working on.
So here we go!
What am I working on?
I am currently working on a few projects for clients – but I am finally working on a few personal projects.
My first project is a blog redesign for Blush + Jelly. For a while now I’ve been a little uninspired when it came to blogging and just feel like this space needs a makeover. Of course deciding the style I want for the new design will take me a while to figure it out (can never make up my mind!), but at least I am starting the process and feeling inspired to spend some time on the blog again.
The other project is finally learning how to sew. The past weekend my Mom came to visit and she made 2 beautiful costumes for me. I spent a couple of hours just watching her sew things together to make something amazing and I feel that it just clicked for me. I made my very first maxi skirt (all by myself!). It is definitely a very rough version and I need lots of practice, but I find sewing to be such a fun hobby. I hope to one day be at least half as good as my Mom.
How does my work differ from those in my genre?
I try to personalize all of my projects by getting to know the client a bit. I like to try to incorporate their personality into their design — whether it’s a blog, website, or a logo — I love to find a trait that can somehow be reflected into the final design.
Why do I write/create what I do?
One of the main reason why I love my job is because I get to collaborate with so many talented and amazing people. I love creating a blog for someone who loves to share what inspires them — or creating a site for a small business owner who is passionate about the product they offer. Creating with others has provided me the opportunity to meet people from all over the world who inspire me to always move forward and stay passionate about the things I love.
How does your creative process work?
I have to admit that I don’t really have a “process”. The creative process is one that is always changing for me. I used to think I needed to find that one way to stay inspired and be able to create — but with time I have realized that creativity and inspiration can come from so many places. When I hit a creative block I just try to step away and recharge by doing some of the things I love: reading design blogs, listen to music, talking to other creatives, or read a book.
Now I am tagging the oh-so-fashionable Supal from chevrons & éclairs to continue the blog hop! And make sure to check out her blog for lots of beautiful photos and amazing style posts! ;)
