January 29, 2015 Weekend Links Honest Talk: Passion Projects I’m sure you’ve heard of a passion project, but if you haven’t. I like to think of myself as a creative person, but will be the first to admit that creativity can be stifled in a work setting and for me, I’ve always got an itch to do something that fills something bigger and more meaningful than my bank account. Last summer I started getting that itch again. I’m lucky enough to have a career that allows me to be creative, but I found myself craving something different, but I wasn’t sure what it was. Upon returning from Asia, I got an email from a fellow blogger turned close friend, Emily. She wanted to meet and discuss an idea she had. When I met up with her, I figured she was wanting to talk about a blog redesign, but her idea was far grander and even more exciting that I could have ever imagined. I told her I was in and since then, we’ve been plotting the launch of our latest passion project, Wandeleur. For us, creativity has been a played a powerful role in our careers, hobbies and general outlook on life and we wanted to create a place where people could come and gather inspiration from other creatives as well as learn and simply be entertained. Our goal is show readers that creativity isn’t just for the artists, but it’s truly found everywhere. I know this will not only be an incredible journey for our readers, but for ourselves as well. We’re scheduled to launch in late February and would love it if you stopped by! We’ve been so busy planning and we’ve already lined up some incredible features, articles and tips and tricks that we know you’ll love. If you’d like to be notified of our launch, go ahead and sign up here or follow us on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I can’t thank you all for coming by and reading my blog everyday, and I really hope that you love our new venture just as much! P.S. My phone blew up on me yesterday so I had to get a new one and I grabbed this gorgeous case in the process. This one was a close second, but I loved the dark florals too much.
