I have really enjoyed the past two months spent as a guest designer for Believe- Creative Studio.The past 8 weeks have been fun designing for the children’s market. We are all ready for the big show – Indigo, Paris Feb 18th -20th, 2014

It has has been quite the roller coaster ride of emotion preparing designs for the show.I have loved every moment of it. I will share all my lessons learned with you next week on the blog. Today, is just a glimpse into the lives of the other guest designers behind Believe Creative.

Inspired by…a walk on the wild side

Solvitur ambulanto ~ it is solved by walking.

I love to walk. It is one of my favorite pastimes.  It is rejuventing and refreshing. The body moves, the mind calms. Some of my best problem sovling comes when out for a walk.

You’ll find the answer as you go.

solvitur ambulando, cross country skiing, whistler, walking I have been hitting the trails for a good couple of hours daily. It has been a winter wonderland here in Whistler.We have had over 8 ft of snow alone in March, 4 ft of which fell last week. More snow is on its way….

I have mixed feelings about snow in March. The days are longer and the hope of Spring is in the air.I actually let myself daydream about long summer days. Something I would never allow myself to do in February! It is important to embrace the  weather here otherwise it makes for a very long cold winter.

P.S. Sorry Flytribe girls…no cute shoes here! Its all boots,ski boots or snowshoes over here. I have come to the realization that I am a bit of a barefoot kind of girl. I am either in ski boots or barefoot….or flip flops when life is really good!
If you want to see some really cute shoes check out our blog hop over here at The Creativity Tribe.
I feel some online shopping coming on…
