A Simply Imperfect Direction 2019
After much discussion, deliberation, to-ing and fro-ing for the better part of last year, we can now safely state with conviction (almost), the direction we are heading towards and the essence of Simply Imperfect Life, the sister website to Floating Lemons Art.
While Floating Lemons Art concentrates on illustrations and design (by Mariana), and products we have in various stores, Simply Imperfect Life is a representation of who we are and who we want to become in the way we live our lives. It focuses on the small changes we intend to make along the way which prioritise our shared values - an appreciation of home, the spaces around us - in and out doors, and propels us towards a deeper appreciation of the everyday …. the things and people that truly matter.
Fittingly, Simply Imperfect Life also reflects our love of Bullet Journalling.
While we fumble and explore in our less than tranquil way towards this ideal — of living a “slow” life, tending lovingly to the spaces we live in, the people in our lives, nature that surrounds us and changing step by baby step towards having a more positive impact on everything around us, we gently remind ourselves to maintain a sense of balance, calm and very importantly, humour. We are so up to the challenge.
This year we will be identifying suppliers of natural, fair trade and — wherever possible — organically grown products to showcase our designs. Slowly but surely we intend to move towards what’s natural, to eat and to live better. We are testing this out by re-using and repairing what we already have, and replacing, wherever possible, with pre-loved finds so as not to rush out to acquire much of what’s new. Every little bit helps …
Wishing everyone a Happy and magical New Year 2019!
