Despite being months off officially launching, I am hosting a ‘soft’ launch of sage x clare this weekend to give friends and family the opportunity to view and shop a selection of our inspiring products. I know many of you lovely followers live around the world, but to anyone in Melbourne this weekend, I’d love you to drop in! xxx
Well that certainly got your attention didn’t it?! Sorry to say but I won’t be giving you some enjoyably cringe-worthy rhetoric on my love life and how to find it. I am referring more to how hard it can be to find content I love enough to post about. Most weeks, I am bursting with ideas and inspired by almost everything I happen to come across, and other weeks I am scouring my go-to sources in a panicked state. And really, when will you ever find anything in a state like that?
This week has been one of those weeks… Feeling rather lackluster, which may have something to do with the fact that everything I touch either seems to go wrong or stop working, I have been struggling to feel that hint of exhilaration when you discover something truly special. Don’t worry, it’s not you, it’s me… it really is.
So in an attempt to get brainstorming I stepped back and…
a. Poured through the pages of Sibella Court’s ‘Etcetera‘
c. Bought my first sketch book and pencil set and began sketching ideas
d. Re-opened one of my favourite books – Recycled Home by Sally and Mark Bailey
e. Indulged in some retail therapy
f. Hell, I even bought some neon thread just because I liked the colour
I wouldn’t exactly say I am cured from my failure to see brilliance yet, but things are on the up. It got me thinking though, how many of you lovely fellow bloggers have similar days or weeks? Or is it just me? Do you wait patiently until that inspiration comes back or do you have rituals, places, or things that help? I’m off to style a Summer wardrobe today – let’s see what the day will bring!
As many of you know, a container of the most exquisite handcrafted homewares and accessories arrived on Friday for my online store. As a stare back at my soon-to-be product, I feel both elated and utterly overwhelmed at the seemingly endless task I have in front of me to style and photograph each and every piece. And then, as I am about to hit panic mode, I remember that life is nothing but an endless journey of tasks, delights, experiences, and challenges. Here is to enjoying the journey and not thinking about the finish line. x
