For the past week or so, I’ve been floating somewhere between tired and exhausted, and feeling more than a little uninspired. My stepsons are here for the summer, so we’ve instantly gone from a household of 3 to a home for 6. That’s taken its fair share of juggling, and I definitely needed a little pick-me-up. Enter these fabulous prints from Daisy Janie, with quotes just pretty and aggressive enough to smack me into feeling like myself again.
My favorite of the bunch? “Why Push the Envelope When You Can Shove It the Hell Through?” Check out these others:
So what inspired these quotes? In Daisy Janie’s own words:
The Flourish quotes are part of a sweet & empowering letter my husband gave to me in 2004, when my work as a decorative painter was part of an emotionally & physically exhausting Designers’ Showcase. The ideas represent what he learned by observing my work process during those long, draining weeks. I’ve had the letter posted on my bulletin board ever since – simple reminders to focus on what allows my work to ‘flourish.’ Maybe they will prompt others to flourish, too!
They’ve definitely helped me get back on track today, and I hope they do the same for you.
