“Undisturbed calmness of mind is attained by cultivating friendliness toward the happy, compassion for the unhappy, delight in the virtuous, and indifference toward the wicked.” ~ Yoga Sutras

Hello blog! I haven’t posted here in a while since I’ve been posting on my tea blog, delecteable. I thought what better time to post again then to declare that I will start a 30 day yoga challenge. My goal is both fitness and to clear my mind. By making it public I’ll hold myself accountable. So here goes…

Saturday (day one): I tried a new studio and attended the 10:30AM all levels yoga class at laughing dog yoga in Wellesley. Great class, I highly recommend it!

Sunday: I opted for a de-stressing sun salutation video I found on Pinterest.

Today: I went to 7:30PM candle light yoga at spirit bear yoga in Natick. Great class, but it said no heat bit is low heat, usually around 82 degrees.

Wish me luck as I try to practice yoga for 30 days in a row!

@missmollybell’s Creative Habit Podcast

by katiering

I have a fun new discovery to share, the Creative Habit Podcast — I’m so glad that I found it! It’s so inspiring to listen to other people who live creatively. People like Molly and Daya, even though they are living creative lifestyles in a completely different fields than myself, inspire me. Creative people draw energy from one another whether or not they are within the same discipline. In graduate school I was often inspired by painters, video artists, sculpture artists etc even though my own medium of photography is different. Everyone’s creativity feeds into mine and energizes me. The idea of saying to yourself “What am I going do that’s my creative habit today?” is a good practice. I actively think; what can I do that is uniquely creative for me and not for anything or anyone else? One of my new creative habits is a tea blog delectable.

I enjoy social media and I enjoy photography and blogs are a place where I can do both. My new tea blog is a great way to connect with my good friend Abby, to share my enjoyment of tea, to write, and share photography. Although that is just one example of my creatives habits, living creatively inside and outside of my career is important to me. I’ve been inspired by this podcast and wanted to share it, especially with my friends who are creators and have unique artistic jobs. For anyone who doesn’t have a creative job, I hope you enjoy the podcast too! I encourage everyone to listen and to think: what is my creative outlet? What do you have  in your life that is uniquely for you and feeds your creativity? It’s such an important idea! I get inspiration from Molly and Daya through their podcast. I’m enjoying it immensely and I hope to share that enjoyment with you! Now — go be creative!

Request to extend photo licensing for greeting card

by katiering

Now this is the kind of email that I love to get!

“Hi Katie:
My name is ——-, art buyer for Avanti Press Greeting Cards.

I’m happy to email you to request a renewal term for our use of your gorgeous Orange Daisy Image.
The card is still performing quite well.
We’d like to extend the license for an additional 2 years.

Hoping you’d be interested in working with us again.
Look forward to hearing from you soon.
Kind Regards”

How cool is that? Oh happy day! Side note, I wonder if there will be a re-print involved. I’d love to get my married name on these, it’s been a while since I’ve seen my ‘Katie Suczynski’ copyright.
