Hi! So Happy Autumn is already starting in San Diego. We were so lucky this past Summer wasn’t too bad, not too hot, as it’s been in recent past years. The days are beautiful with soft, warm, golden sunlight and cool breezes. Just the kind of climate I’ve been awaiting for a very long time, and now it’s finally here.

I came across the word Flat Lay about two years ago on Instagram where then I looked up examples as well as the meaning: “A flat lay is a picture taken from a bird’s-eye view of a collection of items laid out on a flat surface. Usually there will be one item that is the main focus of the shot known as the hero. All the other items in the flat lay are there to complement the hero piece.”

I instantly fell in love with the whole process and since then, I’ve been practicing, not worring at all about outcome, but just having fun in the doing, even when adding the tiniest little things with tweezers. I enjoy gathering all the supplies, taking a trip to the flower shop and putting a lot of time into styling each photo whitout trying to be perfect. I must really be enjoying myself as even the clean-up after doesn’t bother me!

I noticed that I already had many antique things, including vintage linens and other cool unusual pieces that no one cares about as much as I do. These were collected over the years during my travels. So to my surprise intutively I was preparing for this adventure long a time ago. Because I love anything creative and I’m not afraid to experiment with new colors, tools, textures, shapes … it’s all part of my senses incorporating experiences into my creative life which later expresses itself quite naturally from the heart.

In near future posts I’ll been sharing more projects, including photography, flower arrangements, flat lays, product styling, acrylic paints combined with watercolor, gift wrapping, recipes, health and glimpses around the company.

I hope after you read my blog you’ll be feeling inspired to create something that will make you happy!
