Creative Meetup: Purpose Precedes Design

Our latest Creative Meetup was probably the most unorganized, and yet productive gathering thus far! We’ve struggled to remain inspired as we’ve tried to morph new ideas into possible business ventures. Instead of flushing out our initial creative sparks we’ve instantly come up with a 12 step program to “make it happen”. This whole process has left us completely overwhelmed and uninspired to move forward.  This last Saturday we decided to throw all the “pressure” out the window, and get back to what we started with in the first place.

A meeting of friends.

Sharing creative ideas.

And seeing where this goes.

The front porch was our office and plush couches our launching pad.

We found DIY decorating and styling projects from the outside in.

Discovered classic recipes with a modern twist, healthy, and easy as toast.

Enjoyed residential design as a practical piece of art.

And, fell in love with a modist, energy efficient, and cost effective pre-fab home!

We don’t know exactly where this is going, but something in our bones tells us it’s good. Something in our spirit confirms that this is right and true. Something in our hearts says we must continue to dream, and let passion fuel our creativity. For when we take it upon ourselves to “make it happen” then it’s up to us to sustain it.

Purpose precedes design.
