Be Inspired

Have you ever sat down to create and literally not a single thing comes to mind?  Everything just goes blank.  Pencil tapping, staring out the window, humming to yourself.  You wait for something to come to you and it just doesn’t?  I have been talking about lack of inspiration on my social media lately (find […]

Rest, Reset, Reflect, Repeat

As the Bravely Original blog continues to grow and we explore topics all across the creative space, I’ve noticed a particular theme keeps popping up.  So many things I choose to cover here somehow link back to our fundamental human need for rest.  Isn’t that interesting?  I’ve thought about it a lot over the past […]

It’s A Process

Happy May! April showers bring May flowers… and the chance to demystify your creative process.  We’re spring cleaning together this month, but it’s going to be so much more fun than dusting behind your furniture.  We’re going to talk all about accepting the responsibility of a creative process, looking at examples, and owning our individual […]

The Dreaded Question: “What do you do?”

April has been all about putting ourselves out there. We’ve worked through how we feel about being seen, we’ve built social media accounts to share our work with the world and we’ve talked about the best ways to make those accounts work for us.  To end the month, I want to talk about putting ourselves […]
