So, let me tell you about some of the things you'll see on my board and find on my blog:
3. Minimal, clean design, art, photography, you name it. If it's clean, well made & shows restraint, I love it and want to share it!
4. Extraordinary graphic design. From business cards to packaging, even to styling for special events in new and thoughtful ways! I love it all and want to make note of the best of it to keep myself inspired.
5. Ira Glass. I put him on my board because he has been a HUGE inspiration to me. Watch THIS and you'll see why. I'm self taught. I don't know everything about design. People I work with are consistently younger and further along than me. The amazing interior designers, Robert & Courtney Novagratz (who I just realized should also be on this board!) are known for "breaking all the rules" and I don't even know what all the rules are, that they're breaking! But, I'm 'closing the gap'.
My work really is (finally) getting to a point where it's beginning to be as good as my ambitions!
6. Lastly, the photo of the young woman next to the gorgeous pendant in the top left corner, is Sonora Webster Carver. Sonora was one of the very first 'diving girl's' in the 1920's. Sonora would climb up a forty (sometimes sixty) foot tower and mount a running horse as it reached the top, then they would jump from the tower, her on the horses back, into a pool below. She was phenomenal. In 1931, she hit the water with her eye's open and was permanently blinded. The even crazier part is, she continued to dive horses after her accident until 1942! Blind! The audience never knew. Pretty extraordinary. She wrote a book called, "A Girl and Five Brave Horses" that was later made into a movie by Disney, called, "Wild hearts can't be broken". She was reported to have thought that they veered a tad too far from the truth in the story, it's still one of my favorites. She's always been such an inspiration to me.
So, that, is a little summery of what this blog is about and what you can find here. I would love to hear from you! Do any of these things inspire YOU!? If not, what does? I'll leave you with this neat fan made video from the, 'Wild hearts can't be broken' movie. It's a good one! xo
