tippics It's late in a hotel room but I just saw this so wanted to join the #circlearoundmh17 #mh17. I can't think too much about these things because it breaks my heart but needed to show my support to my adopted country on it's day of mourning. 5h

tippics I was playing around yesterday trying to create a "Love People Use Things" graphic so hubs decided to design a t-shirt for me. He's busy putting his designs on Zazzle these days to try to justify his unemployed bum status. Haha. We're off to the UK tonight - holidays, yahooooo! Except everyone wants a piece of me and I still have to pack, prep the house for the painter, make jam and oh, wash my hair! ;-) 2d
  •   natplays Xxxxxx safe happy travels!!!! 2d
  •   jenniferloiselle Looking forward to seeing you guys! Let me know when you get a chance what kind of time you're thinking. X 2d
  •   tippics I think we'll be early - land at 6:30, say an hour before we set off + 2 hours to drive to you so about 10ish? :-) @jenniferloiselle Will text you when we head off on the drive. Yay! 2d
  •   jenniferloiselle Great! I'll have tea and cakes ready. I apologise in advance on the state of the house, it's a bit of a tip at the moment! X 2d
  •   tippics Don't apologise! Never apologise for that. :-) @jenniferloiselle 2d

tippics @natplays has just put up a fun post about revealers vs concealer (coined by Nate Berkus) on the blog @apartmentdiet. So which are you? A @kararosenlund type (left pic) or like these folks featured @thedesignfiles (right)? :-) #happyhouserules #concealervsrevealer #nateberkus 2d

tippics Feeling rather bold today because life is too short. Saw this & thought "yes". I have this happen a lot in my work as a coach - I am good at what I do & I have seen folk completely change their lives after 1 single conversation with me but I rarely am told "thank you" & it's frustrating to not hear it. (What can I say, I like to be appreciated.) I know it's partly my fault because I tell my clients that they do all the work so I've decided to be little less subtle in the future. OK, rant over. Off to try to cool down somewhere. Phew it's warm! 5d
  •   1happymess Is good to get things out happy weekend!5d
  •   homestagingbrisbane Ask yourself "how do I know I've done a good job?" If the answer is 'someone tells me' then you need to ask for the feedback. For me I 'just know but it's a bonus to be told' so I don't need this feedback as much. For my husband 'he just knows' so if someone tells him he's done a good job or not it doesn't matter! 5d
  •   tippics Yeah, I'm trying to get to the stage of just knowing but what I know about is that a little bit of positive feedback can keep me happy and motivated for a long time! :-) @homestagingbrisbane 5d
  •   16house I'm a big believer in giving credit and acknowledgement to people, or just telling someone they look nice when they do, always truthfully ... And yes just the most simple thank you is all we often need, should be more of it x 4d

tippics To the creatives out there - is the the #truth? :-) 6d
  •   accessorizeyourhome Ik word creatief van de creativelingen om mij heen...krijg ik inspiratie van! 5d
  •   tippics Yes, I get inspired too but I'm just wondering if being creative results in more creativity? Like turning on a tap! :-) @accessorizeyourhome 5d
  •   jenniferloiselle I would say yes. My mum has no idea how I became the person I am in terms of what I do, having no interest in art or crafting as a child. I think the more I've been creative and the more I've learnt about creativity has made me more, well, creative! 5d
  •   homestagingbrisbane More of a confidence, getting out of your own way, more free, more risk taking, learning through trial & error kind of thing. Creativity is a muscle - it improves with use 5d
  •   natplays Been thinking about this... agree with @jenniferloiselle @homestagingbrisbane though I think I want to have more fun with it so I wonder if being fun & playful makes you well, more fun and playful? Xx 4d
  •   tippics I'm sure it does @natplays but this really is about whether creativity is a muscle. :-) 4d
  •   natplays @tippics I know sweets I think it is - you guys just got me thinking. 4d

tippics I've been pondering this for a little while as I'm not usually that outspoken but it's still bothering me so here goes - what do boobs have to do with paint? It's akin to putting bikini clad women on cars. Inappropriate. Why? Why? Why? @meettheblogger #flexanl 6d
  •   myfabulousdesign Haha!! 6d
  •   osmangazali Materialism of the women. Brought to you by west. 6d
  •   tippics Naturally, I am being ignored. I guess no one cares about women being exploited because well, sexy sells. Still. I thought we were past that. Obviously not. Anyway, I'll just make sure it doesn't sell to me. #flexaboycott 4d

tippics Posted this earlier today on apartment diet as I think it's pure genius design by @jennywolfinteriors. Finally a mix of modern and classic that I can see in my bathroom! So, my Q to the Dutchies out there, how would I get shower doors like that made for a reasonable price? I'm in luuuurve. Big time. (& thanks to @lyndahome too - if you figure it out let me know! :)) #interiors #bathroom #shower #inspiration 6d

tippics You know what? I think I did good. I'm always my harshest critic & I just need to stop doing that. 1st ever fabric flower brooch made with things already in the house. Good enough to pop into the bunch with the rest tomorrow. Done. :-) 1w

tippics @flutterbymama asked me to show one #fromthecuttingroomfloor - only one? I have gazillions!!! I guess I just like to post life rather than random flowers etc, though I'm wondering if more pretty might work better on IG?! Or maybe I should just stop babbling, haha. Would you like to play lovely @adena__x ? 1w

tippics It's really ALL about the chair. It's a sad morning when such a thing of beauty leaves my grasp!!! But I know it's going to #rockthatla. It has a beautiful soul & that my friends is gold in any language. Mwah @madebylon, S & R (& papa). PS If the chair gets homesick, it's always welcome to come & stay. PPS It won't get homesick, just think about the weather today! 1w
