Hello, dear readers. Inherent in the mission statement of The Bright Side Project is the unspoken belief that to “Do What You Love, Love What You Do” is an absolutely essential component in creating a happy and healthy lifestyle. Every now and then, we will ask our contributors to answer a few short questions on the ideas of happiness, creativity and sunshine. We hope these rays of light help inspire you to find the sunshine in your day, today and everyday.
Today we are honored to introduce you to Louise from Wall Envy Art.
Please introduce yourself to our readers and explain a little bit about your business.
I’m Louise and I live in Northamptonshire, England. I create eco-friendly typographic art on framed vintage book pages and sheet music. I hunt down old books in second hand shops and give them a new life as a little piece of art. My family’s framing business supply my frames, using eco-friendly wood, and I print the art at home. I use inspiring, romantic and quirky quotations and saying from the world of film, literature and science. I love coming across new quotes to use.
We believe that one of the ways to achieve happiness is to “Do what you love, love what you do.” How does this philosophy apply to your life?
I do love my job, and one of the things that I love about it most is that I get to spend most of my days with my son. Being my own boss means I get to choose my hours and work around my family. It’s not always 100% straightforward, but it’s better than fitting in with someone else’s schedule!
Our mission here at The Bright Side Project is to spread sunshine on a daily basis because we firmly that life is (still) beautiful. Where do you find beauty and inspiration?
I find beauty and inspiration in old bookshops, European cities and the English countryside. Very often a new design will emerge from a custom order. I love how my products give people ideas which I can then develop further.
On a dreary day, what do you do to infuse your life with a little bit of sunshine?
Make my son laugh.
What are you most grateful for?
My happy family, and my wonderful customers.
