learning journey

BLOG_image_54_learning journeyLast year I unintentionally embarked on a bit of a learning journey (I have mentioned it here and here and here). I’m not sure why but there has been many benefits the most of which is realising that I really really really like learning.

I thought I would have a break this year but a month in and the journey has continued. Right at this moment I am completing a skillshare course in establishing a new business the right way, Kemi Nekvapil’s Raw Beauty 30 Day Self Love Experience, working through an e-course on how to Write and Sell Your Damn Book! by Paul Jarvis, preparing for Interwoven in March and finishing off watching (again) some the Big Hearted Business 2013 online conference.

Phew! Sounds busy hey.

Having realised how much I like learning I am now struggling with what to do with all these new things? Do I actually need to do anything? Is just doing it because I like it enough? Should I have a bigger picture plan? Should I … should I … should I …

Truth is I don’t really want to have a plan. Completing these courses is very satisfying. Satisfaction drives a tonne of other things for me many of which are creative-based and as a designer what more could I want? Enjoy!

a cup of tea with me

BLOG_image_47_acupofteawithmeOver the last few months I have been enjoying the complete delight that is Pip Lincolne through her course Blog with Pip (I’ll write a little more later on). Today is the “official” last day – yes I am sad but mostly I have butterflies. Excited butterflies.

So to go out with a flutter, students have been invited to pour a cup of tea (actually I dread to think how many cups have been consumed during this course) and share a little about ourselves. So here is my interview with me:

What I do on a daily basis
Design (graphic/print), make, create, dream, be a wife/mother/friend and drink copious amounts of coffee.

Favourite things to do
Same as above.

Favourite place to be
Anywhere where I am experiencing something new or loved – usually at home or near the ocean.

Favourite things to eat/drink
Coffee, wine, coffee, bubbles, coffee, tea (and if my beautician is reading this lots of water, lots!) – oops I forgot food.

Favourite inspirations
Seeing/reading/learning about people who are doing what they are passionate about.

Something I want to know more about
There is not enough time or space to deal with this list here.

Some favourite blogs
&kathleenthe red thread blog, poppytalk, style by emily henderson, oh joy, plus all my new blogging mates from the course with Pip (check out their links here) and last but not least meetmeatmikes. Enjoy!
