The beginning of this quarantine was rough for me. I was seeing so many people saying that this virus was God punishing us and honestly it had me so confused.
The idea that God would be punishing us was so far outside of my understanding of Him that I legit just felt like I was doomed and I was going to hell and I had to beg for forgiveness cause I was no where near ready for judgement. It made me feel hopeless.
But everyone saying that this was a plague from God was quoting Old Testament scriptures out of context. They were talking about God before Jesus died and rose again, and idk about you guys, but even in correction God has always been loving to me. He’s never made me feel hopeless or like I had to beg.. He just wanted me to hold myself to a higher standard.
So for those that were/ are confused, hold tight to what YOU know of God, despite others’ speculations. I know my God to be my Fortress and the Rock where I hide (Psalm 94:22 NLT), and my Helper (Psalm 54:4 NLT).
Don’t let hysteria and fear cause you to forgot that God is not the author of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33 NKJV) and His plans for us are to give us a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV).
It's s new week! Not sure what that even means anymore as we are all still in the same space! Speaking of which, six interiors peeps, including these two divine creatives @rachelcastleandthings and @heathernetteking, are sharing their thoughts, and tips, on working from home, over on the blog. Rachel says: "New rules are my old rules: Armaforce, sleep, good food and rest. And being nice and kind to one another." And Heather is worried about becoming an increasing fridge-bother (me too!): "I’m going to have to buy a lock because those chocolate teddy bear biscuits are playing games with my mind!" For more light-heartedness as well as practical advice on home working, head on over via link in profile. #workfromhome#workingfromhome#creatives

Yo, this joint right here is going to be bananas! Often times men are not allowed to holistically allowed to embrace and signature their creativity. I’m honored to have two of the best in the same space to discuss what it honestly means to embrace and dominate your creative space. Thanks @jasonmccoyphotography for gracing the I Am Man, Inc. podcast! #creatives#men
Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts.
Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.

This is a tricky one, isn’t it? Well, not so much.
We’ve heard of “Exposure Bucks” before. In fact, the Master @thechrisdo talked about it before on Youtube and posted about it on his instagram account (go check it out!). And you can agree or disagree, but there Is a thin line between wanting to make both sides actually gain something from a collaboration, and get work done for free.
I think it’s important to talk about these things and not think it’s a normal situation for all creatives to go through, that it’s necessary so you’ll get thicker skin down the road.
What are your thoughts? Agree, disagree? Why? Do you have any “exposure” horror stories to share? –– Like and Share this post to spread the word 🙌🏻
How to improve your interiors photographs...I have told you guys before that I take almost all my own project photography. There’s only a handful of my projects that I’ve had professional shot over the years.
When I’ve don’t this I have also only ever used my iPhone for these photos. Although I do have a “good camera” I would forget to bring it on my final styling day so would be stuck with my phone.
Anyway here I wanted to share 5 pictures of one bathroom for you and explain why this image you see first is the one that I like best. Let me tell you what I don’t like about the others, so to us hopefully helps you think about your own images:
📸 image 1: I like it because it’s completely front on, everything is straight in the image, plus you have a bit of detail of the rest of the bathroom as part of the image. The composition is pretty good - although would be improved if I had avoided having the light in the roof showing
📸 image 2 - in this photo the sink is too close, the image is boring as you can’t see what else is going on in the bathroom
📸 image 3 - in this photo the addition of the towels are distracting and because the image hasn’t been shot completely front on the composition isn’t good
📸 image 4 - same sorts of problems as image 3 expect the side on angle results in even worse composition
📸 image 5 - I don’t mind this image but the tap has been cut off, which spoils it
I’ll write another post soon about the things I always think about when I’m taking pictures of interiors.
I want to try and teach you guys that it’s completely possible to take photos of your own projects. I know many of you don’t have huge budgets for photographers yet, but you need photos of your projects to use on your website and social media.
Finishing up my 𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙣𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙙𝙚𝙡𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩𝙨 - 𝙧𝙚𝙛𝙡𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨 𝙞𝙣 𝙧𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙖𝙣 series and I can't decide if posting about skincare is weird considering the times or helps provide a sense of normalcy...leaning towards the latter. How about you? Is your skincare routine even more of a comfort now? #selfcaresunday
This series covers my 4 step core routine for evening. 🖤 Step1: I don't think there are any surprises here but my first step is cleansing with @deviantskincare and removing with a warm cloth. You will NEVER guess where I got these clothes from...Home Depot!!! Did you guess that? I bought them to keep on hand for wiping up counter splashes but they weren't absorbent enough. They do however feel just like muslin cloth...WIN! #beautyhack 🖤 Steps 2-4 pictured here with details in previous posts.

Meet the Jordans: What's up world? This is Tyler! If you know me, that has been my signature phrase for a while and I'm not retiring it anytime soon! 😉 I'm a multi-instrumentalist, (violin and piano are my primary but I also dabble in
and bass, guitar and sax) music teacher, (public school and private lessons) lyricist, (hip-hop @brokensystemsmusic) composer/songwriter and would-be photographer. My heart beats for building community and collaboration. The aim is to live out real life out among real people. Thank you for joining me on this journey!
از آخرین باری که پیتزا درست کردم و یک لکه سس روی پیراهنم ریخت؛
هنوز پاکش نکردهام.
از آن دفعهای که در آن روز بارونی برای آخرین بار بغلم کردی و جوری رفتی که انگار هرگز وجود نداشتی؛
عطر دیگری به شال گردنم نزدهام.
من آدمِ خاطراتم.
دقیقتر بخواهم بگویم بعد از تو اینگونه شدم.
هروقت هر حسی داشتم؛هر کسی که در زندگیام بود؛
آنقدر از رفتنش ترسیدم و در ذهنم لحظه به لحظه ی خداحافظیاش را تصور و با خود مرور کردم که دیگر فقط خیالم از بابتِ خاطرهها راحت و آسوده است.
میدانم که قرار نیست بروند.
میدانم که اگر هیچوقت آن لکهها را پاک نکنم؛قرار است برای همیشه همانجا بمانند.
Wahnsinn, wie viele von euch meine Arbeit interessant finden🥺❤️ Tausend Mal danke dafür☀️
Erzählt doch mal, wie ihr auf meinen Account aufmerksam geworden seid☺️

☼ day - pink, yellow, orange and green. the forest is blossoming, the flower’s got a sheen. clouds have dissolved and blue skies revealed. all people came out, ready to be healed. their faces turn up and they greet the sun. they smile and are happy that winter is gone
