Isn’t there a saying— that the definition of insanity when a person keeps doing the same process but expecting different results? Something to that effect. This isn’t my first blog or website. I took a C++ coding class back in high school, so I understand very minimally about code. However, I do know that it is there and appreciate all the numbers letters and symbols that make the beautiful screen before you possible.
I made a website back in college using GoDaddy to sell handbags that I was going to hand sew. The problem is when you’re in college and being social, the commitment to the idea seems to get lost. But nonetheless, I learned to sew. I furthered my painting obsession from high school art class and now have an extensive collection of acrylics and water color.
Over the years I learned many things. I learned how to crochet beautiful blankets and infinity scarves with some hats thrown in the mix. There was also the process of quilting, but I only got around to making samples. I made dream-catchers, art to decorate the walls of my home, stickers, vinyl decals, stencils, tags, homemade cards, heat transfer designs on reusable shopping bags, and wooden signs. You name it, and I want to know how to do it. That’s just how I am— creatively inquisitive.
So I made another website and this time an Instagram as well to showcase some of my final products. Back in the GoDaddy era, the social media of the time was MySpace phasing out with Facebook phasing in. So I wrote a few posts but my social media did not communicate the same message as my blog. I wasn’t ready to fully commit. I had a semi-vision of what I wanted to do but did not know how to get there or what the finished product would look like.
I was posting about life but showcasing my crafts. I had a separate Instagram for myself, where I like to post about this other non-crafty world of “mindfulness” that I have going on in my life. And food. I began to focus more on coloring, painting and drawing in my crafts. I also began to focus more on mindfulness.
So I continued on with my little journey called life. Fast forward to the April 2020 and I finally had that vision I was waiting for. The beautiful culmination of Prana Fresa– a breath of fresh air. Mindfulness, Projects, Food & Education. One place where I can tie all my life passions together.
I’m so excited to continue on this journey. I wake up each day grateful. Life passes by so quickly. It’s so important to make time for the things that you are passionate about in life. It’s equally important to care for your mind, body and soul. Especially if you want to stick around for a while.
