There was a long loving post written for this Friday about thoughts i’ve been having lately. On living life like it’s the last minute. Remember how i said yesterday how much i get inspired by songs? Yeah, well that happened today when i bumped onto the chandelier. And watching the video, listening to the lyrics,… Read more »
Firstly, i have to mention how i’ve west coast on repeat all day. And it’s not the first day. Most of the times when i’m designing, i get inspired by the songs i’m listening too. For the past 3 years i’ve been listening hell of a lot Lana Del Rey. There’s just something about her… Read more »
01:30 pm Yes ladies, you didn’t read anywhere that i cook! Actually, my pretty darn amazing husband cooks and i love him so for doing that. Every once in a week (honestly, more than that) i’ll get to cook as well. So we get a whole 30min to prepare the table and eat.
I won’t lie. Hats are my weakest point, and at this moment i have zero in my closet. But they have slowly started to grow in me! Plus they keep you safe from the sun (something Theodore keeps reminding me). Although each and every one of my top 4 below are pretty darn cute, i… Read more »
COCORRINA ETSY SHOP Everything literally came together in just one day. Today. When we decided to stop making the concrete necklaces, we had never imagined how many requests we would get to bring the jewellery back. So, in the past month, we’ve been working on two collections. One that will be realised soon (hopefully) and… Read more »
Somehow last week i’ve had quite a lot of ethnic influence on me. It all started with me feeling more grounded, spiritual calm. Then searching for yoga playlists to relax and work on projects. Ending up with me discovering ethnic – world music, and dancing oriental around the house, and really enjoying myself while doing… Read more »
Before i start with this post, i just have to shout out, on how much i am in love with those beauties! I made my husband “steal” from someone’s yard and i just can’t find out what type of flower this is. Smells like roses (it’s so good, it blows my mind) it’s a tree, and the flowers are like tiny peonies. Any suggestions, are highly appreciated.
Ok, back to the post now. This week, while i was writing a q&a for an awesome lady’s blog, i was asked about my creative process, and i was kinda stuck. I had never considered before if there actually is a process behind projects, because i usually just go with the flow. Turns out there’s more in it that i would have thought.
1. CATCH THE CONCEPT
The first and most difficult step (for some) is the actual beginning. Catching the concept. My brightest ideas and creative concepts come to me when i’m not working on them, those few minutes before i fall asleep. Always keeping a notepad next to me to write everything down.
2. GIVE IT SOME TIME
Never go into it right away. At least that’s what works with me. I tend to give the idea some time, air to breath and grow into me. Usually, that turns out to be a good thing, since i end up adding greater elements to it.
3. PRACTISE, DRAW, EXPERIMENT
The first main idea, never stays as it is. After lots of experimenting, wether that’s photography, or a design, it ends up somehow different. But if you don’t experiment in lots of different ways, you won’t end up having something great!
4. TO ASK FOR OPINIONS OR NOT?
Most of the times, we tend to ask loads of people on what they think of our finished product. I’ve always had a dilemma on wether that’s a good thing or not. On one had, someone might give you a good piece of advice, and bring to your attention something you had not seen before. On the other hand though, it might just confuse you more. After all, we are all different people, with different tastes. Trust your gut i say?
