RONNIE & GEORGIA'S OUTDOOR SPACES DESIGNED BY ME!
This is the original design for #HOUSE3 on @theblock There were many changes that had to occur (true Block fashion!!!) Tune in tomorrow night for the reveal to see what changed & how the actual garden turned out. I'll be sharing more of the design and the #BTS revisions after the episode 🙈🌿 GO #TeamWa#ronnieandgeorgia #tentonnetessie#9TheBlock #TheBlock2017
Here's a birds eye view of our landscape design, created by one of our fav, uber talented and fellow WA creative @mon_palmer... Our initial concept pictured here changed a couple of times due to unforeseen circumstances... such is the Block journey! We've learnt to roll with the punches, thankfully Mon did too (despite being heavily pregnant and on the other side of the country) Can't wait for the big reveal this Sunday, we're excited 👊🏽
Most days I wonder what all the hard work is for... the late nights, self doubt, failures, cashflow issues, deadlines... (I know a lot of the creatives & small business owners out there feel the same way, right?!) So when @tessmccabeof @creativemindshq asked if I would be in her latest book "Conversations with Creative Women" Vol III (what the?!... Ummm OK!) I realised in this unexpected moment that even when you feel like a fraud and a failure you can still be inspiring someone to take that step to start their own creative journey... because no matter how hard it can be at times, especially when starting up and in the beginning, there's nothing more rewarding than following your own inner calling & journey.
In this book I share how my journey started, the obstacles I've faced along the way (including sexist bullying) and what's to come. This book (avail from @creativemindshq & @readingsbooks) is full of honest conversations with amazing creative women, all of whom I am honoured and humbled to be alongside in this book 💫 Mon xx
I am lost for words to describe the week that has been, so here are a few words from a couple of weeks before when I was interviewed by @countryroad at 38 weeks pregnant. I am so glad I was open to do this so close to the arrival of our baby boy. I will cherish these images of me pregnant with him forever 💙 I've added a pic of Sebastian at the end, taken yesterday at 5 days old... And yes, he is dressed and wrapped in CR.. and no, it was not planned!! I did not know when this was coming out! 🙊
