  • PLANTS // The colder than usual weather (we say this every winter) and a bout of cough and cold in the family has definitely put the brakes on my usual routines. This gorgeous snap from Dutch #bossbabe @kimbuining featuring our Red Florals Kalamkari quilt perfectly sums up my mood these days. While trying to get my energy levels up, I can't think of anything better than a warm turmeric chai, snuggles with my kiddos under a soft quilt, and a wonderful book after they have gone to sleep. Natural textile dyes derived from plant sources have only been gaining momentum in the last decade or so, or even more recently, but holistic plant based dyeing processes are considered ancient in India and go back to thousands of years. Plants are seen as powerful healing agents in Ayurvedic practice and the right blends in textiles have even been known to synergise energy flow when they come into contact with the body. Taking in this knowledge, as a mum, I wanted young children to most benefit from this and give them the best start to life. Our blockprinted Kalamkari quilts are dyed with organic vegetable based dyes and the colours they produce are beautifully nuanced rather than have the saturation of synthetic dyes. The resulting hues are imprecise and the whole process is a labour of love, art and philosophy. What has your energy and mood been like these past few weeks? ❤️🌿 PLANTS // The colder than usual weather (we say this every winter) and a bout of cough and cold in the family has definitely put the brakes on my usual routines.

  • What does every small business need? A really good understanding of lemons and how to avoid the sourness of being unproductive. @stefaniamariaa of @flowwithconsulting is an expert in operations, and we were so lucky she spent the evening with us last month to lead a workshop on productivity. 
We dove into her SLICED framework of identifying where our time goes, assigning it a category, and then organizing our operations to find more time for "flow" and getting in "the zone". We can often feel very reactionary, like we're spread thin, and don't have a lot of control over tasks. This workshop truly opened ours eyes to taking control of our daily tasks, and optimizing them to find even more passion and enjoyment in what we do

Keep up the awesomeness Good Workers!

Acabou de sair do forno um novo projeto Internacional ✈ quentinho e cheio de muito carinho.

No último sábado (17), foi o lançamento da nova coleção de produtos co-criados com a Green Pines Media, um negócio social de Signal Hill, Califórnia, que trabalha criando oportunidades para jovens artistas. Os produtos desta co-criação foram bolsas e mochilas de cinto estampados com as artes dos jovens criativos da Green Pines Media e enviados para a Califórnia para comercialização com retorno da receita para o projeto.

O trabalho conjunto de dois negócios sociais multiplica o impacto. Muito obrigada a @greenpinesmedia pela confiança em nosso trabalho e a @flow.ie e por fazer esta conexão acontecer! ------------- We just launched a brand-new international project filled with lots of affection.

Last Saturday (17), was the launch of the products co-created with Green pines Media, a social enterprise of Signal Hill, California, that works creating opportunities for young artists. The products of this co creation are bags and backpacks stamped with the art of young creatives from Green Pines Media and were sent to California for commercialization with the revenue returning to the project.

This Joint work of two social ventures multiplies social impact. Thank you @greenpinesmedia for the trust in our work and @flowie for making this connection happen.

  • What if everyone hates it?!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The fear is real. When the idea for a #book pops into your head, there’s an immediate barrage of abuse from your brain depositing all the reasons why writing it would be a terrible idea.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Who are you to #writeabook?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You’ve never written for that audience before?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You’ve never written more than a blog. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How will you feel when you get a 1* review or an email asking for a refund?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You’ll embarrass yourself.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They were a few of the not-so-supportive comments I received from my brain as I decided to branch out from what I’d written before and try writing for five/six-year-olds. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When you start working on a #newbook it is terrifying.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know what my #bookcoaching clients are going through when they take the leap and decide it’s now or never. I’ve been through it so many times that I can say with authority that it doesn’t get easier, it just becomes familiar. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today, I’m out the other side once again having celebrated the publication day of my first #childrensbook yesterday. I’ve heard from #parents saying that their #children love it, I’ve heard from #teachers saying that it’s perfect for their #PSHE classes this year and I’ve heard from the children themselves, who have been repeating the #words and copying the illustrations, truly engaging with the #story.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have no doubt that there will be criticism along the way and that’s ok. I know that I did my best, that I followed my tried and tested process and that my ideal reader is enjoying the story. That’s a win.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Writing for this age-group was a huge test for me as before I started writing, the amount I knew about five/six-year-olds would fit on a postage stamp. I started learning. FAST.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If it matters to you, if the book needs to be written, you can figure out a way to make it happen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I would love to say that this is one of my favourite illustrations but I couldn't even begin to choose. Fiona Mackay is a GENIUS illustrator!

  • So many exciting possibilities with blockchain! 🧩✨
#Blockchain #technology provides a path for millions of people who are currently unbanked to establish a credit identity - and with Capaz, an impact identity, through transparent, incorruptible data transactions. Investors, creditors and donors can buy up #impact credits, establish micro-loans and directly transfer funds and remittances. 
Reading great research BloomX’s @cryptopop has put together. Lots to come ahead!
