Dream Design Achieve
Dream, Design, Achieve - what a fantastic motto to live by, I am wearing this round my neck too. Above is my lastest bag design, some of you may already know I did try to become a little more conservative with my designs.. But I woke up this week and realised this is not me, and not what I want to do. I want to be bright, loud and noticed, and hopefully others out there do too and therefore will enjoy the bright and loud.
It occured to me (again whilst dreaming) this is how I started, and impatience told me it didnt work, but looking back it did. My very first custom order on Folksy was from a lovely lady called Liz Dyson, you can find her supplies shop here:
Liz requested a loud bag, so we set to work and achieved this one - turned out to be not quite what she wanted.. which was great as we got to try again..
As you will see this bag sold too, to the lovely Wenona from "Nithria Craft" you can find her shop here:
The next creation was just right, and loud enough for Liz, I have no idea why I dropped the 'Loud Liz' title, again perhaps inpatience on my part as this one has had a lot of interest on Flickr and proved popular, so why did I not stick to these and what I enjoyed the most? Here is Liz's Loud Bag
I wonder if Liz realises how much inspiration she was? I did create a few other rather loud bags and thinking about it now they all sold too. Starting on Monday there will be more bright loud bags, and why not? Also this wonderful motto "Dream Design Achieve" will be available at my other shop 'Special by SimJaTa' as brooches, keyrings and bagcharms as I think we all need to share this.
If you are out there designing and dreaming and swapping and changing STOP - enjoy what you do. A wise man once told me about photography to enjoy it, this reflects though in the pictures - therefore same must apply with our designs. Remember to enjoy what you do and create from the heart.
Dont forget "DREAM DESIGN ACHIEVE"
Hope you enjoyed the surman.
