Personalized Reversible Sequins

Reversible sequins seem to be all the rage right now, especially with Teens. I must say that I, myself, have a difficult time passing up the chance to reverse them when passing a lovely display in a store. Not having youngish ones at home any longer (I just became a Grammy!), I haven’t had a reason for creating personalized reversible sequins pillows until NOW! I just discovered that Chalk Couture has the perfect medium for making it my own!

The versatility of our Chalk Couture products continues to amaze me. Our Chalkology Paste is a perfect medium for inspiring you to add your very own creative touch to personalized reversible sequins pillows, bags, wallets and more.

Take a look at this tutorial video about our Chalkology Paste and personalized reversible sequins by a Sister Chalk Couture Designer.

Benefits of Taking Creativity Breaks

creativity breaks - longevity - chalk couture - jana zuercher -artsy fartsy friends.

According to scientists, Creativity Breaks are more important than we realize for success and longevity.

Studies have shown that taking creativity breaks relieves monotony and potential boredom. Additionally they breed confidence, enhancing problem solving abilities and productivity.

creativity breaks - productivity - longevity

 

Taking creative breaks away from everyday processes often  leaves one feeling refreshed and accomplished. Exploring your own creativeness can be a pattern interrupt from the mundane in your week. Channeling your own ingenuity or creative prowess could inadvertently lead to discovering better solutions and increased productivity in other areas of our lives.

 

Creativity Breaks and Longevity

Though those are all very good reasons to participate in creativity breaks, taking time to explore your creative side with any type of creating  seems to have some life altering benefits.  While researching the validity of these claims, I discovered an informative article “Creativity Predicts a Longer Life” published by Scientific American.

 

creativity breaks

Even the smallest of projects can get the neurons going.

 

“Taking time to exercise our brain in creative ways is beneficial in keeping our brains healthy and running properly, which is one of the most important, aspects of aging successfully—a fact shown by creative persons living longer in our study.”

“Individuals high in creativity maintain the integrity of their neural networks even into old age,”

“The researchers found that only creativity—not intelligence or overall openness—decreased mortality risk.”

Nicholas Turiano, now at the University of Rochester Medical Center is quoted throughout the article.

4.  I  forget about the daily grind and therefore can relax and rejuvenate. 

3. Creating, with my own hands,  makes me proud.

2. Creating takes me on vacation.   

1.  Using my hoard of crafting supplies, bit by bit, releases me of any restraints for purchasing MORE!

Chalk Couture & Watts of Love

Chalk Couture & Watts of Love

When I first joined the company,  I had no idea of any corporate philanthropic endeavors  or of the Chalk Couture Watts of Love campaign. Discovering that Chalk Couture supported the non-profit, green and sustainable initiative of Watts of Love made me realize that my decision to begin this new journey was indeed a wise choice. Through education, support and guidance, Watts of Love helps poverty stricken communities to help themselves to move toward a more sustainable future and therefore leading to a successful break in the cycle of generational poverty.

Watts of Love is such a clever name for this organization. Solar Lighting is a leg up, but it comes with a helping hand and education to help the community grow more economically successful, as well. Learn how Watts of Love empowers communities with knowledge.
