Slip Dress & Oversized Denim

"Bite off more than you can chew, then chew it"

Biting off more than I can chew is the story of my life. As a creative person, I must constantly find myself being fed inspiration and knowledge in order to feel fulfilled. I am always working on projects while looking for new ways to expand myself and creativity. Luckily I am a person of follow through and focus and can never give up on anything before I see it all the way through, Otherwise, I would be all over the place. Have a lot of ideas and nothing to show for it. That said, I am very careful in my decisions about what I take on because once I dedicate myself to something, there is no turning back and it easily becomes the focus of my life.

This is true of my blog. I have wanted to start a blog since 2009 but for many reasons I won't bore you with, I waited until last year.  Since it's launch, it has been the center of my universe. I spend every "spare" moment I have on STFU, and with great satisfaction. I love it. I started my blog at a quiet time for me, when it came to filmmaking at least. I wasn't producing anything at the moment and was at a point when I really wanted to do something big, that I had always wanted to.

Once I officially launched STFU, inevitably I signed onto a film. There are quite a few different types of producers. I work mostly in pre-production of a film- planning, if you will. It's a lot of paperwork, meetings, scouting, scheduling, budgeting, which can take months and months. It's a full time gig in it of itself. At that point I was juggling work, blogging and producing. I had a few freak outs I must say. It was a lot on my plate.

And then I had the bright idea of starting a kids clothing line. Like most things, especially blogging and producing, Tribe & Company took a lot (a lot) of planning. Like seemingly most of my jobs, the process was a long, tedious one, but the journey was really exciting and well worth it in the end. There is nothing like seeing something through from idea to execution.

But all the work- the blood, sweat and tears that goes into our creative endevours can leave us exhausted, overwhelmed, stressed. So much so that I wish I just had nothing to do. No projects. Nothing to work on. I like to try to cut time out to relax but as you can probably relate, there just isn't time. If I relax one night, that's more work for the next.

But in the end, knowing myself always keeps me going. I am definitely the type of person that really thrives when I am stressed, with insane to-do lists, piles of work on my desk and sleepless nights. I am happiest when I am pursuing my creativity and mot fulfilled on the journey through a project. So I always bite of more than I can chew, and then chew the shit out it because the chewing really is the bets part.
