Your pack

wolf-lane bar


Everyone longs to run with a pack.

We were created to do life as a community.

Wolves run in packs and so do healthy creatives.

You were not designed to do life alone.

Who is in your pack?

I spent the weekend tucked up inside a chapel.

One which took my breath away.

My husband and I looked at each and every hand made brick, we searched and thought about the massive rafters and we talked endlessly about who made this chapel.

This last weekend it was full of young adults. It created a sacred space for them to meet with God.

We wondered what the people who made the building would have thought if they found themselves transported forward to these precious moments?

The men and women who made the chapel, left a beautiful impression on a generation that is very quick to move into the now, the present, the plastic, the consumable.

This chapel at Fairbridge seriously amazing.


My husband and I could not work out, how possibly in the early 1900’s how they could have lifted the rafters and built this monster of a building without the machines we have today.

The answer is a pack.

A pack of men, banded together and created something overwhelming to the Glory of God.

What are you creating, that future generations will stand in awe of what you have built together?

What are you sacrificing today, so that tomorrow someone can live inspired?

Who are you doing it with?

creative boom

This video is super inspiring. Reminds me so much of my story.

Have a go and do something that you never thought you ever could.

Love it

Lisa is much further along the journey than me but I have just downloaded her book and can’t wait to get into her creative discovery process.

how beautiful is

hbi-logoCapture Consulting has been working with Vanessa Hoyes on her blog helping her team get ready for a 40 day journey called ‘She Lives Bold’.

They are going on a pilgrimage of discovery and hope leading up to their boutique women’s conference.

As a little gift for the girls embarking on the journey I designed this printable to download A blessing for your travel with a fabulous poem Vanessa refers to in her opening post.

Below is also photo scripture montage I put together inspired by the first scripture from day one of the journey.

blessing for your travel



The word inheritance is often associated with money or financial gain. It is really interesting to take time and reflect on what our inheritance is beyond monetary gain.

Exciting days.

Weird ones unite


Dedicated to my friend from my year of wander.

The problem with fashion, as soon as everyone starts to wear it, its most likely to be out of vogue.

Fashion creates waves because it sets new trends and it takes a while to be accepted as the status quo.

As I flick through instagrams and watch blogs evolve, I am often perplexed at how many people copy what other people are doing and claim the right of setting a new trend.

The only way you can stand out from the crowd, is to accept that you are different from it.

If you think you are cool and have made it, I would like to prepose that you are probably not.

Who sets the standard of cool?

Who dictates what is fashionable or not?

Who judges a piece of creativity’s standard?

Often the crowd.

Problem is, as soon as the crowd accepts it, it is quite often sanitised and consumer shaped.

Which means it has lost its edge.

Which means that it is no longer fresh.

20130918-092655.jpgWeird is okay.

We grow up through highschool hoping no one will call us weird.

I have found if you want to be a culture creator or influencer, you need to totally come to terms with the fact that you are different.

How can you create something fresh if you are constantly trying to be like everyone else.

I am okay with my weirdness.

How about you?

where the wild things are

wild thingsI sat in the midst of our overgrown lawn today, enjoying the depth of its green chards. Spring is so close to being here and taking a moment to just be, helped me discover a moment of inspiration.

It is easy to produce perfection if you have a big budget and a staff of many.

There is much to be said, for the organic, the momentary, the raw, the urban and all that brews.

I sat reading my frankie magazine and its been a long time since I have bought one. Nappies and all things toddler have been a higher priority on my shopping list.

I decided I needed a little inspiration kick today, after a big month of giving out, I needed to refill again.

A magazine, a coffee and an appointment booked for this afternoon for a massage.

Not a normal day in the life of this novice mum, but one necessary if I am to continue to embrace the chaos of this new season.

I turned up a new playlist on my spotify account and I breathed deep.

What I discovered from Frankie this afternoon though, was that its lost its edge. Yes, it is inspiring…

Yes, it is filled with many things I love and I want…

but I found myself surprised that the first few pages were full of adverts and not ones that were organic, edgy and made me want to go and discover more.

Frankie has sold out.

I was discussing a project with a couple this week in a mentoring forum and I found myself saying ‘Don’t sell out to the corporate opportunities’.


A different way of describing it is ‘Stay wild’.

Creative people, stay wild.

Don’t allow the crowd to domesticate you.

One of my favourite books to read to my little man Maximus, is ‘Where the Wild Things are’.


Imagine if we remained wild in our thinking, our imagination and our pursuits.

Don’t sell out to the crowd, creative ones.

Find your song and sing it.

Refine your song and play it.

Find your place and own it.

Don’t let the big boys tell you how you should ride.
