Welcome to my journey: The making of a studio

 This year I've decided to really go for it, live my dreams instead of putting them off, storing them on a blank space as potential. One of the questions we get asked most in life is "what do you want to be when you get older?" like it should be an easy question to answer? My answer is still, "I have no idea..." because it's not that easy, you do not simply become something because for me the strive is not to become "something" but to become "someone" that I am proud to be. Therefore, instead of getting stuck, going in circles I've decided to take control and really develop my ideas, challenging myself to develop and strive. One thing I know is that I really love creating and watching something grow from idea to something tangible and more than simple fiction. Ever since I was a kid I have created things freely without patterns or rules, which I'm grateful for today. I'm a firm believer in that you learn from both your misstakes and triumphs. It's scary to go for your dreams, aiming for the stars but sometimes you have to do it for yourself and the worst thing that can happen is that you fail? But failing doesn't have to be a bad thing as long as you learn from it. For me failiure is not a destination, it's only a difference in perspective and it doesn't have to be yours.

So welcome to my journey, creating Coastal Heart. It's going to be a learning curve and a dream coming true for me. I'm currently in the beginning stages of setting up a studio, which is hard work while both studying and working and getting the right tools in the endless ocean of outlets is no easy task. But I've told myself that getting the right tools from the start will be worth it in the end. I really want to create pieces that are of good quality, genuine and personal pieces to be proud of and to love for years to come. My biggest problem right now though is that, while my wishlist is growing the task of finding the most essential tools for my ideas gets harder. I'm constantly telling myself that a studio is not built over night, rather it's a collection of tools accumulated over years... but it's hard to listen to facts when you are eager to start, filled with ideas and inspiration.

You might be asking, what pieces? Coastal Heart?? Well, we have to wait and see, leaving you in a bit of suspense ;) I truly hope you want to join me on this journey, exploring, creating, developing blank spaces into tangibility. x S.

  3. Hello Sara,
    That question - what do you want to be when you're older - has always bothered me. I completely agree with you; it's about the person you strive to be, not the title you slave to achieve. Great post, and keep at it! x
