And they are here. I made cushions last year for the 1st time and by the time my online shop was launched I had already run out of the 1st batch. The next batch is ready and finally available on the artnlight online store. Its a small batch of cushions and they are quickly getting picked up. Its interesting to note that the same designs work differently on fabric. Here are the Royal Rajasthan range of cushions.
Coming up next is the vintage Range of cushion covers. You can pick them up here.
The beginning of another New Year. Another chance, actually 365 more chances. A lot of things have been going through my head these past couple of weeks, and some of the things that are blinking back at me bright are the things that I would not have caught myself thinking of earlier. These are things that I need to look at, and bring in more of. I just wanted to share that with you.
And a new year is as good a time as any other to take stock and to look ahead. I wish each of you a brilliant and beautiful 2015. A year where you get closer to the way you want yourself and your to be. A year of bravery, not necessarily the loud kind, but the kind of bravery that it takes to wake up into another day and give it a genuine fresh shot, the bravery it takes to love better. The bravery it takes to speak a truth you've always known but never spoken to the one closest to you. The bravery it takes to take your work to the next level. The bravery it takes to learn something new. The bravery it takes to admit you might have been wrong. The bravery it takes to say no, simply and clearly without feeling the need to justify yourself.
And the things that I mentioned that were blinking brightly at me are:
Its ok to ASK. For anything, for help, support, it might mean just asking for a conversation with someone because you've missed them in your life. I've figured it does not come easily for me to ask. But who knows what that will open up. No chance, no dance :)
The other thought that been going on and around in my head is to go in and nourish from the inside without worrying about the outside. Which might translate to doing things for yourself and your body, which might translate to starting a practice - anything, conscious breathing, drawing, just listening to music and doing nothing else along with that - you get the drift. In this smartphone and facebook era where the immediate temptation is to do and show - why not start something just for yourself which is not about sharing with the whole world. Its a thought.
