20 things you didn’t know about me

 

Behind every blog is a face. But imagining the human side can be hard. There are so many great bloggers out there that look like they are superhuman. Inspiring people who do amazing things every day.

But I am not one of those. Still, I wanted to share some things with you, so you can see the human behind the blog.

So I thought I would share some things with you today.
(And if you are curious where I have been read till the end!)

2017 New years resolutions and goals // Creative entrepreneur

New Year is the time for new years resolutions. If you are a well-organised person that has their life together, you probably did some actual planning and instead of me you already made some great goals already.

But I like planning at the last possible moment. And thus I write my goals in this post on the afternoon of the 31 of December. But then again, you should never wait for a specific time or date to start a new habit. (But if you are writing blog posts for the coming Monday, your name is Sofie, and you are busy for the entire next month, you should have started earlier.)

Advice for bloggers and entrepreneurs; Dare to dream


Do you ever indulge in a good session of day dreaming? Just sitting (or laying in bed) and think of all the things that could be. I think dreaming is good for you. Even if it might seem unproductive, it is an amazing way of visualizing.

So do you Dare to Dream? Do you think of the things you wish to be true?

Whats new & what is happening

Hey guys, It has been a while. This post is just a little update on what happened and will happen with this blog and more.

I am not quitting and I actually hope to start up again. Life has become a little busy in the last couple of months but my health has taken quite a nose dive. Hopefully, I will get on that again with trying some new things but in the meantime, this is what has happened.

 

Last Saturday I have had my first ever Art fair. The experience was amazing. I have met lovely people who said lovely things and I left there feeling so much better about art then I did in a long while.

Some people who I want to thank especially are;

  • My mother, sister, and boyfriend who spend all that time with me in my booth (turns out my little sister is a marketing genius)
  • Elzeline, for filling up my booth with her beautiful handmade jewelry!
  •  The many people who encouraged me to do more art and to keep doing it!
  • The other artists on the fair that were ready to help and support each other at all times!

I will make an entire post on the things I have learned from this experience! (If you already have some questions leave them in the comments so I can answer them in that post!)

Furthermore, I have been drawing and painting like crazy but only traditional. So to get into my digital artwork again I want to start with finishing some artwork there. Luckily I do have some work that I haven’t shown you yet (even if some of it is already sold).

I should have taken pictures but just for the mental image I had painted two A3 pictures, a deer, and a bear that turned out amazing and I thought they really showed my progress. Meaning that I will be painting in acryl more again since it is such a gorgeous medium.

Another thing that has happened is me trying gouache and actually liking it. I do like to mix it with aquarelle but the details I now can get are really amazing!

For the blog;

Like I said I am not quitting but starting up again but things might change a bit. I want to have time for my study (which I just started, jeey!) so my blog might get a little less time.

  • There might be fewer posts. I am thinking once or twice a week.
  • My response time might get longer (but not like the last few months)
  • I will be online less.

I do however have some new exciting things planned and the ebook I promised you all that time ago is still coming. I am just a little bit perfectionistic.

Those are the updates I have for now,

I hope you are as excited as I am and thank you for sticking around all this time.  

Let me know if there are things you look forward to seeing on this blog!

6 months in; starting a creative business

I flopped this month, totally flopped. What is flopping? I am not sure but it sounded like a great word to describe this month in creative business.

Last month was quite the month, I made my first income and I did a lot of amazing stuff and then this month nothing.

I did start 10000 ebooks (or 3) and I have finally started writing my blog post in advance (more than 5 minutes in advance) But it is the networking and promotion department where I just didn’t do enough this month.

6 months in; starting a creative business. Everything from stats to plans. My honest journey to starting a business with no prior knowledge!
