What inspired you to start this business?
We wanted something that we could do together as adults, so we combined our expertises into creating a business that shares positivity and mental health tips in a beautiful and fun way!
You're all about positivity, what kept you motivated to stay positive during such a challenging time this pandemic?
It’s hard for anyone to stay positive all the time, and we’re no different. The number one thing that kept us smiling this pandemic was finding time to do little things that we enjoyed, whether that be reading a new book or watching a favorite TV show, and recognizing that we still had control over little moments of joy like this even though we couldn’t change a lot of what was happening pandemic-wise.
What's the best piece of positive advice anyone has ever told you?
Do what you enjoy, and do it unapologetically! You’re in charge of your future, so make sure you’re happy with the direction it’s headed.
What piece of positive advice would you tell an aspiring artist?
Just keep creating what you enjoy creating! It’s so hard to not want to fall into the “well they’re creating this and having success with it, so I should do that too” hole, but seriously. Don’t worry about what other people are doing, just keep making what makes you happy. When you’re passionate about something that passion will show through in your work and people will recognize that and want to see more.
