How I got kicked out of my studio

How I got kicked out of my studio

Hello!

It’s been so long since my last post. So much has happened globally, locally and on a personal level. This is just an update on what I’ve been up to in the last 9 months and boy oh boy it’s been quite a rollercoaster ride.

So I relocated from Ikorodu back to my studio in Ikoyi at the beginning of April and resumed life and work in my new reality.  I had moved to Ikorodu in November 2016 for 4 months following the death of my father, to support my Mum through her mourning period. My loyal clients (for whom I am forever grateful) stuck by me  through this transition and continued bringing me their business. God bless you all ever so richly.

As I felt more settled in familiar surroundings back in Ikoyi, I started making plans on achieving my goals for the rest of 2017. Continue reading

We’re in the press! The Luxury Reporter magazine 

Hello beautiful people,

Long time no blog 🙂 It’s been quite an eventful year for me so far. I’ve been so busy with other aspects of my life that I’ve not had the headspace to start blogging as consistently as I should. But soon all that will change..can I get an AMEN!

So while I was away from the blog, if you follow me on social media you would have seen my  post on creating paper decorations for Candy Cart NG. My props were used to decorate her candy cart for the 76th Birthday Party of Chief Rasaq Okoya, and for those of you that don’t know who that is he’s a billionaire Nigerian Industrialist (Wikipedia’s words). Well it so happens that post was picked up by Funke Osae-Brown the Editor of The Luxury Reporter and voila here’s yours truly featured in the pages of the February Edition of the online magazine!

December: 2015 Monthly Calendar Project

December: 2015 Monthly Calendar Project

Hello!

Welcome to December! If you’re like me you’re probably thinking “Wow! this year went by really quick!” But then again, I think I have that thought every December! LOL!

So as you all know this will be the last instalment of the 2015 Monthly Calendar Project! OMG!! I have mixed feelings about this.

On one hand I’m happy I was able to set myself a goal and keep to it consistently through some of the most difficult periods of my life like family drama, work pressure and battling health issues (Oh yeah, apart from overcoming and having a successful treatment for a long drawn out health problem earlier this year, I also recently had my 1st and hopefully last severe allergic reaction! Might blog on that later).

November: 2015 Calendar Project

November: 2015 Calendar Project

Hello and welcome to November!

Where has the year gone?! It seems just like yesterday I that I made my first paper cut in this series. Yet so much has happened this year too. I can only be thankful for how the year has gone, both the good and the bad because it all works together to shape me as a person.

So the quote for this month is

Go the extra mile. It’s never crowded

I think the quote speaks for itself. Why settle for average and blend in when with just a little extra effort you can be exceptional and stand out?

October : 2015 Monthly Calendar Project

Hello!

Let me start by saying:

Happy Independence Day Nigeria!

For those of you who are not in the know, October 1st is my country’s Independence Day and we’re 55 years young!

October is also my birthday month *whoop! whoop! It’s less than a week away and no I’ve not made any plans *sigh

So I’ll make this brief.

The quote as you may have already guessed is;

You must do the thing you think you cannot do

It was said by Eleanor Roosevelt  and I think it is quite apt because it speaks to where we are as a country and also to me personally.

September: 2015 Monthly Calendar Project

Hello!

Can you believe it’s September already? 2015 is flying by and what a year it has been so far.

So on to the quote for this month is by Napoleon Hill

Don’t wait. The time will never be just right

I decided to do something different with the backing papers for this quote, by using different colours in the negative spaces of the text. I reckon it turned out quite well. And what says time better than a watch/clock, I emphasised the time never being right by having 2 different times depicted.

April: 2015 Monthly Calendar Project

Hello & Welcome to the month of April!

Don’t worry I’ve not got any April fools prank in this post I promise 🙂

This month’s quote if from the book titled ‘Oh The Places You’ll Go’ by children’s author Dr Seuss. Though I was familiar with his other books like ‘Cat in the Hat’ and ‘Green Eggs and Ham’, prior to picking this quote, I’d never read this particular book and only read it after I’d designed this April page. The words of the book are really inspiring and motivating so I’ve decided to reproduce them here to give more meaning to this month’s quote, which is;

You’re off to Great Places. Today is Your Day

I hope the words of the book truly inspire you to find your inner greatness and to give yourself permission to go live your dreams. This post is dedicated to everyone who dreams of achieving more and also to my country Nigeria. Congratulations to all Nigerians who took part in the just concluded Presidential elections. As we take new historic strides towards a better democracy I pray we realise our collective power as a people who have the capacity to work together peacefully and move Nigeria towards greater achievements.

HELLO & HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Hope you had a fabulous New Year’s Eve celebration and now ready to face 2015 and everything it has to offer.

As New Year’s traditions go I’m sure quite a few of you have made resolutions or have goals you would like to achieve this year. Yes? No? Did you make any last year? And how many of your targets did you hit or miss? I know I definitely missed my targets with regards to this blog. If blogs could talk I bet mine would give me a good earful about how neglected it must have felt in 2014.

So this year I’ve devised a plan of action to keep me productive on this blog. I actually didn’t have a set plan last year so I’m hoping that since I’ve thought this through it will work out (how well will it work out? I guess I’ll find out in the implementation) . So part of my plan is to create a calendar of motivational quotes. I’m not a big fan of calendars, which could be why I was not that organised last year, so I’m hoping to kill like 3 birds with this stone….talk about ambitious right.
