creative space

At the moment, I have lots of lovely dreams. Some of which I can see are slowly coming to reality, which I'm beyond excited about! One which won't come around for awhile, but I can't wait for, is to someday have my own creative space. A studio, room, or even just a corner with a desk that is my creative haven filled with inspiration and the tools I need in order to do whatever creative design project comes along. Here are some pictures I came across at Design*Sponge of the home and creative space of the creators of Dear Hancock. Love the space, not to mention the great tulips (on´of my fav flowers) and the dog (can i have him too?).

a type and movie-lover's dream

As a lover of fonts, type, movies, and vintage goodness, i have to share this site i came across that is a collection of movie title stills put together by web designer Christian Annyas. It's so neat to see the variety and the transformation of something we see so often, but only for a fleeting moment.I can't get enough of the different fonts and seeing how some of the titles creatively execute the movie's concept in a single image. Enjoy!

p.s. can the dress with the clothespins holding it up in the display someday be my wedding dress please?

the power of an image

I'm not what one would consider a very political person. Visiting Israel this summer opened my eyes to a lot of the struggle for power, and how ugly that struggle can be played out.

The photos in this photo-essay (link posted by a fellow alumnus that was working with a Peace-making team in the middle east) reminds me of how powerful a photograph can be. Images sometimes have the power to evoke something from people that sometimes, even eloquently-written words just cannot.

I think in this series, the one that stands out the most to me is the picture of all the concrete blocks surrounding one little girl's pink backpack. It's interesting to me how a photo of objects can capture such human emotions. It seems to quite clearly represent the chaos and destruction that surrounds the children that grow up in these situations.

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,"
Matthew 5:43 & 44

"Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you."
2 Corinthians 13:1

HE will establish your plans

"Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans. The Lord works out everything to its proper end- even the wicked for a day of disaster."
Exactly what I needed to hear. Thank you God.
