Every week we write this I can not believe how fast the week flies by. Also, every week we write this I wonder when I am going to stop? Nobody else seems to be blogging anymore, but I can’t figure out a great way to get the info we want to share to you in a format that is as easy as this? We don’t Facebook, it just never resonated for us. We Instagram like lunatics (we actually have 5 Instagram accounts, 2 personal), but it doesn’t have that same ease. I personally feel like a last hold out of an archaic system, the information decimation equivalent of an individual still using cassette tapes while the rest of the world has moved on to streaming. So I ask, what blogs are you reading still? If you are I’m going to take a guess that they are either home or food blogs, am I right? Just curious, as I move forward with the times (and I do want to), I am trying to figure out what Besotted should be (if anything), just a little ponder…
I. This isn’t new eye candy, but it’s still incredibly creative and smile inducing!
II. I love a nude lip, and word on the street (love her or hate her) is that this is a really, really good one!
III. I am obsessed with this nature docuseries, OBSESSED. I can not believe all the perspectives they were able to capture from literally birds eye views to bees dancing, to snowflakes falling. I can’t even begin to understand how they did it or the time and skill it took to accomplish, just fabulous!
V. I am still going strong with the 100 day project (100 days of botanicals). I am almost on day 70 and can tell you it has been one of the best creative exercises I’ve done for myself in a long time. I now have a cohesive (ish) body of work that could potentially turn into a portfolio. I can tell you it has been incredibly challenging with an already filled to the brim schedule, but I’ll share some things I think I did right, that have helped me stay on track. I chose a subject that I loved and that was readily available–botanicals. I didn’t limit it to just photographs, I included drawings and paintings (and whatever medium I desire to represent the botanicals). Both these two decisions have made it easier for me to continue to stay motivated and not feel like I am stuck in a creative rut. If you choose to do something like this you don’t need to share with anyone, but I would encourage it, because it has kept be accountable and I have been introduced to some new industries and faces from around the globe and that my friends is very exciting!
