There’s Never Enough Time…

6b8812f606c33017478d7186c97f0c23I’m not one to swoon, collect, or display those on-trend “words of wisdom” quotes that seem to grace walls, mugs, linens, et al these days. However, the moment I saw this crayon-scribed Bill Watterson quote, it hit me hard on the insides in a warm and lovely way. This is it! This is what I feel and what I want to say most days. In a sense, doing nothing is doing everything you want. It’s when neither your body nor your mind are preoccupied with the busyness of the day and can truly connect to make wonderful ideas. Or to just be in the moment and take some deep breaths.

I’ve collected some images of all the nothings I want to be doing. They are inspiring and motivating to me, as I hope they can be to you.

Bill Watterson is a genius.

Ashley Goldberg Patterns

Inspired: Ashley Goldberg Patterns | Sage & Oleander
I have a lot of goals. I’d love to be an art director, photographer, stylist, illustrator, hand letterer, nutritionist, yoga instructor, the list goes on. After stumbling upon Ashley Goldberg’s patterns, ‘pattern designer’ has been added to my long list of hopeful accomplishments.

Her designs are abstract, graphic, kooky, bright, and fun. In her latest, she’s utilized a beautiful colour pallet of pinks, yellows, white, and black to create some funky feasts-for-the-eyes. I love how organic and rough her shapes are and they come together to create something so perfectly imperfect.

I can’t not be happy when looking at her work – they’re like a two dimensional carnival! I’d love to have some of her patterns as wallpaper, bedding, homegoods, and fabric. How amazing would these be on a dress, skirt, or crop top?

Below are some of my favourites of hers. Check out more of her lovely work here and here.
