Create Every Day!

Anyone who knows me knows, I don't read books...I devour them!  

This month I have been diving in head first to books about creativity, buisness, love and so much more.

After months off work, trying to recover, I am excited to be getting back out there here in my business and in my classroom with my kids. That said, I still have a lot of work to complete my recovery, and changes that still need to be made to stay balanced going forward. One of the big things missing? Creating!

Inspired by Elizabeth Gilbert's book "Big Magic" (if you haven't read it, you should...like now) - Starting April 1st, I am challenging myself (and all of you) to carve out time in the daily schedule (I'm doing a minimum of 30 mins but aiming to hit 60 mins most days) to create. Doesn't matter the result - success or failure. Like the old saying says...It's not about the destination, it's about the journey. The point is to create, to make time for it, to schedule it, and love it. The medium doesn't matter.

 

Throughout the challenge I will be sharing some of my creations on instagram. Some of my favourite mediums you can expect to see:

  • photography (of course)
  • calligraphy
  • hand lettering
  • watercolours
  • creative writing/journalling

Will you join me? Will you make the time to let your creativity out?

Tell me a little about yourself

I have always been an artist at heart. When I was younger I would make crafts, create sculptures and paint something every single day. I attended a high school with a Regional Arts Program and graduated with a major in visual arts, but didn't pursue that in post-secondary education. I, however, didn't pursue visual arts in post-secondary education. Instead I went on to study culture and heritage in university and college and wound up as an artifact conservator. It was an extremely artistic and detailed field, but one that was not very well supported. I ended up moving to London, Ontario in 2012 (for love - how fitting!), and decided that I was going to go back to my roots as an artist and start a business of my own - and here we are today!

What inspired you to start your Quaint Paper Co?

I had been thinking about starting a paper products/stationery business for a long time, and the constant encouragement from friends and family was the push I needed to get it going. I was also thrust right into the wedding industry by getting engaged myself, in 2013! I fell in love with all of the designs and possibilities there were for wedding stationery and knew it was a great fit for me.

What is your favourite part of creating wedding stationary for your clients?

My favourite part of the job is painting my designs. It's so satisfying to start off with a blank white page, and to end up with a colourful, beautiful design at the end!

What's the biggest piece of advice you give couples about their weddings?

Your wedding invitations (or save-the-dates) is the first sneak peak of your wedding that people get to see. They should reflect who you and your fiance are, and the tone you want to set for the day.

You can personalize so much more of your day (not just the invitations!) when you work with a custom designer like Quaint Paper Company. It also feels really special to receive something that was hand made, just for you.
