While away from posting and emails, I spent a good portion of my time Pinning. Something about consuming images that speak to several parts of my body and brain, allow for the quieter portions of life to thrive. It doesn’t feel like social media consumption. It feels like flipping through a 90s magazine, or finding a wonderful essay in a collection you infrequently pick up.
Here’s a bit of it…
Loretta Devine in the 90s
Are you finding ways to get inspired (or stay inspired), these days?

Yes! To see a 90s magazine! Is this how my mother felt when my teenage articles talked about the 60s and 70s? I just indulged in a pair of mary janes out of nostalgia.
hahah Julie, I think so!!!
Life is heavy! Thank you for these lovely images. I am (trying) to find ways to be inspired— and Pinterest is my happy place. Images of faraway places, Susie Bubble fashion from the early 2000s, pink decor in cozy pretend houses. I am also rereading favorite books (just reread your book!) and checking out art books from the library. ❤️🌈
I love love love this list so much!!! And thank you for picking up my book again. I appreciate you
this is such a pretty collection. thanks for sharing! inspiring me – justina blakeney’s design/blog (so joyful and bright) and knitting. when i was feeling the holiday sads i decided to learn something new and managed to find everything i need secondhand (already had a bunch scavenged yarn). yay for soothing new hobbies with pretty end results.
I love Justina (and her blog) so much. It is a deep source and I love how accessible it all is while still being aspirational. Yay for new hobbies for sure! Thank you for sharing. xo
Love these! Lately, books and spinning and knitting. I think the main thing I’ve done to stay inspired lately was starting a long IG break – looking forward to how my creative process might look like after a while (eeeck!). I have similar feelings about Pinterest though – I just LOVE it! <3
Cat, feeling the same! x
Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos ✨
