What’s your favorite quote?
After a prolonged winter, I was very excited to paint these cherry blossoms. Went a bit too far with the pink here, but it's only because I was too excited for spring.

I asked myself this question a lot before I decided to post anything to my blog. I played around with the website, the layout, the colors and changed my mind too many times. Nothing seemed to satisfy me or reach that level of perfection I dreamed of.
English is not my first language, and although I do have a lot of exercise reading/writing in English, it still doesn’t come naturally to me. Above all this, being an INFJ (Myers–Briggs Type Indicator), I am somewhat reserved in communicating my thoughts and feelings. I came across this pin the other day, which describes me very well: “For me I see it [an explanation] clearly in my mind, but apparently sometimes when it comes out, it’s missing half the words.” Do any of you out there feel the same?
Also, what scares me a little bit is the idea of being personal and sharing moments of my life, my designs, my ideas with strangers. (Let’s just get to the point where one person reads your blog, Awa, LOL).
All these things made me indecisive of whether I should start a blog or not. What made me change my mind is the idea that I can collect and store beautiful, positive moments of my life. I can share stories, personal views, images that I can come back to every time I need a reminder that life is good. I just don’t want to be held back by the negative aspects of life anymore, and starting this blog currently seems the best idea to help me do so.
I do hope that this blog will also help my business and will challenge me to become a better me.
