I know, I know… I have been so quiet that you wondered whether my PAUSE had turned into a jolting STOP. Or maybe I’d been eaten by a lion. OR maybe I had turned into a big yellow school bus!
Wait a minute. Big – almost, yes. Wearing yellow – yes. Eternally travelling to school and back – Yes! The similarities are quite scary. But no, I have not turned into a school bus just yet.
I have not been pausing nearly enough either. It feels as if I have been going around in loops in my head, but there has been progress, I am almost there and you’re the first ones to hear about it. The big news is that studio louvain, my photo-studio, will soon be opening a real online shop at creative market! This means that creative entrepreneurs, designers and bloggers will be able to buy photos like the ones that have appeared in this blog, quickly and simply from me, online.
At the same time, I will still be creating exclusive photos of specific products or concepts via my portfolio website.
This all means – new website, new branding, tons of new photos and at some stage even a new and better blog, with regular interesting bits of inspiration, behind the scenes explanations and more. Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook… There is still a lot of work to be done, but as a friend of mine keeps reminding me: baby steps! (with little pauses inbetween. 😉 )
So if you’d like to be kept in the loop, keep following me. There are bigger, better things waiting just around the corner.
In the meantime, I was quite excited to receive a reminder to Pause from the little bit whacky, but quite inspiring Marie Forleo. (Have a look at her take on downtime.) Looks like the world might slowly cotton on to the idea that taking a break, creates better work and better people in the long run. Don’t you think so?
