Weekly Notes: Director's Cut


Past few weeks have been a crazy ride, but a really good one.

I've been writing constantly, but none of it has made it to the blog yet...it's just not ready. My notebooks in all colours and sizes are pretty much everywhere in the apartment, each of them focused on a certain theme or category...sounds like a mess but it most definitely isn't. At least not for me, it works like a charm.

Autumn is gonna be wild, busy, I have so much work to do and I'm so looking forward to everything but it made me ask myself a certain blog related question and the answer was something so refreshing, light, calm, stress free and I feel so relaxed about it, like I've never been before.

In a way it seems like, for the first time in four years, I feel like 100% myself in here...not worrying about anything and just sitting and writing about what I love. I bought new nail polishes and some new plaid shirts for the fall and will completely reorganize my wardrobe for the upcoming colder season. The list of the items I want is endless but I'm having so much fun with it.

At the moment I've promised myself that one day of the week is gonna be completely dedicated to Mattie & Mo because more than that I simply cannot give to them right now. But our studio sessions are super productive and amazing which means that right now we don't actually need more time.

Also, after months and months of trying to find the answer to the burning question which revolves around the future of Forever, your teddy bear photo project, I've finally made the hard decision not to continue with it. I felt a bit sad about it in the beginning but it is the only right thing to do, especially when my head is filled with loads of new ideas that I can't wait to explore more and focus on which means that I have no time for going back to the past tense.

This fluffy project will always and forever be my favourite one but it's super important to know when to stop doing something (it's just like when you're editing a movie, it always feels like it's not finished, like you can change something but at one point you have to hand in the master file and the story's finished).

Summer is slowly coming to an end (even though temperatures wouldn't agree with me) and I feel like I managed to do everything I wanted. And I'm not talking about silly bucket list things but the more important ones that are focused on the relationship I have with myself. I knew that these summery months would be all about introspection and working on some changes, I was looking forward to it and I've never been happier - with myself, the job I love, this blog I keep on writing no matter what and the people who surround me.

I don't think I could've wished for a better intro to a weekend.

And how are you guys doing?

  1. Bas sam sretna za tebe i za sve sto dolazi u buducnosti, bas kao i za sve sto si uspjela otpustiti i ostaviti u nekim proslim vremenima. Ponekad moramo na ovaj ili onaj nacin se "zahvaliti" za sve dobro sto smo s nekim ili necim proslo ( osoba, mjesto, projekt, nije bitno ) i prije nego u potpunosti izgubi svu lipotu i magiju koju su imali odluciti dati mjesto nekim novim ljudima, mjestima i sl u svom zivotu.
    Povratak Mattie & Mo me uzasno razveselilo i jako se veslim svim novim crtezima!
    Uzivaj u vikendu i samo nastavi hrabro sa blogom i sa svojom autenticnoscu, to je ono sto me privuklo i zadrzalo na Smile Snap Sparkle ovoliko dugo. :) <3

  3. Cheers to new nail polish and plaid shirts! I love list-making for the upcoming season - such a great way to sort out what you want to do; and there is no better time to do it than fall!

  5. Veseli me vidjeti još Mattie&Mo trenutaka na blogu, a koliko god voljela plišance mislim da je jedino ispravno slijediti srce pa mogu i plišanci pričekati ako im se u ovom trenutku ne možeš posvetiti zbog drugih obaveza. Ne možemo biti na sto mjesta u isto vrijeme. Nikad ne znaš kako stvari mogu ispasti i ne bi me začudilo da se plišanci odjednom uklope u neki drugi projekt ili zažive nekim svojim životom kad se najmanje nadaš.

    1. Hvala ti! :)
      Dobro kažeš, nikad ne znaš u kojem smjeru će stvari otići tako da nikad ne reci nikad, ali u ovom trenutku je ova odluka bila jedina ispravna. Ali postoji velika mogućnost da još jednom zažive unutar jednog drugog projekta, ali o tome više kad sve bude crno na bijelo :)

  6. Iako sam i ja bila malo tuzna zbog objave kraja Plisanaca, takodjer shvacam da se treba dici sidro... iako (ne bi ja bila ja), opet smatram da ako u zivotu susretnes nekoga tko ima plisanu zivinicu i pozeli ti stati pred objektiv, fotkaj ga... jednoga ce dana sve to zavrsiti na nekoj izlozbi... vjeruj mi... a tad ce ti biti drago. Uostalom, zasto bi svaki projekt trebao imati kraj. Ja, kao skolovani Projektni manager, kojega su ucili da mora imati pocetak i kraj ti kazem-ne mora. :) :p To je ljepota umjetnosti. Ona nema rok trajanja i ne trpi forsu. Jednom, mozda , plisanci s vremena na vrijeme pronadju put do tebe! :)
    Kako god, ja ti od srca zelim svu srecu cega god se primila! Ja stvarno vjerujem u tebe!

    1. Slažem se, draga moja! Nikad ne bi odbila napraviti portret nekoga tko želi ovjekovječiti svog plišanca, uvijek ću rado u to uskočiti...I baš si lijepo ovo sve rekla, malo sam se zamislila da ti najiskrenije kažem...vidjeti ćemo u kojem pravcu će se jesen razvijati pa ću onda moći biti i malo pametnija i određenija! :) I kako uopće da ti zahvalim na ovakvoj višegodišnjoj podršci...jedno hvala zaista nije dovoljno! :)) <3

  7. Veruj me da to ispunjenje i zadovoljstvo koje osećaš sama sa sobom i svime što te okružuje je upravo ono što je tvoj blog podiglo na još jedan viši nivo, a da ne govorim koliko mi je to nešto čime zračiš tako zarazno i isnpirativno. Retko ko uspe da se oseća 100% dobro u svojoj koži, iako je neki broj jedan za sve. Samo nastavi tako. I meni je žao što je "fluffy projektu" kraj, ali ti si ta koja ima moć da kaže i da, i ne, i da se predomisli 100 puta ako treba ;)
