This has been a long time coming. And it’s finally here!
For the longest time I have wanting to create my own little space here on the great world wide web. Something that was my own where I could share my creative inspiration for my artwork & illustrations, give a look into my lifestyle, share my favourite things, places, people and share the lessons I’ve learned in life so far.
And now, it’s finally here!
My last blog Cameras & Clutches was made to showcase my love of photography and fashion (specifically bags). I remember coming up with the name for the blog and feeling so good about it! But, at the time my careers in marketing & later digital advertising were my main focus and my little blog became neglected.
While I was able to post every once in a while on the blog, I still used my social media accounts as a much needed creative outlet to help me deal with things going on in my personal life (read very therapeutic). And every new year, for the past few years, I would set a goal to write more. To create more content for my blog.
Last year, I decided I needed a do-over. I was going to create something that would be long-lasting that would truly serve as a creative outlet. And bigger than that, I wanted to inspire people in some way.
And that’s how Élana Camille Creates was, well … created!
I should also mention (shameless plug) that this will not only be a blog, but an online shop too where people can buy my artwork (one of the things that I am most excited about!!)!
My ultimate hope and dream for this new blog/shop, this new site really, is that it will showcase all the things that I love while allowing me to grow as an artist, an illustrator, a writer, a photographer and as a person. And I also want to inspire people to be creative in their own lives, however that might look.
And, if there is one thing that I want readers to learn from my blog, it’s this:
Being creative doesn’t have to be complicated.
Can’t wait for you to go on this journey with me!
