Creativity | At Home Inspiration

It is so easy for me to get bogged down with a demanding inbox and full plate, I know almost everyone can relate. What affects my work the most is just this, unfortunately. If I get overwhelmed, I work less efficiently, less enthusiastically and of course, with less creativity and spark. I've learned to take a few hours to myself and create something that is just for "me". I have other methods too, like another cup of coffee, reading, getting out of the house, etc., but creating something - off the computer screen - for no reason at all does the trick best!
The past few weeks have flown by and I am happy to say that although I thought September would begin a "slow period" for VAD, it has been quite the opposite.

As I am always adding to my brand inspiration board, a few photos stick with me! I decided to ask Jessica a few beginner tips so I can watercolor one of my favorite photos by Rylee Hitchner (florals and styling by Abany). It is not done yet and I applaud Jessica once again for her patience and time commitment, watercolor is not easy nor is it quick! But it is so relaxing and was great to sit back, paint and reflect. I may have had a glass of white while I did this!

Seriously, so much fun! It is extremely relaxing (when there is no pressure involved). I continue to look for inspiration at home, and I would love to share the who and what of my inspiration!
