Change your perspective, change your life. Perspective can be defined as a particular attitude toward something; a point of view. So how do you choose to see things everyday? Are you painting your life with the colors that have been handed to you or are you creating your own rainbow and beauty beyond what is superficial? Have hope and move beyond your struggles; always looking for the reason to be thankful. Shift things in your life and take ownership to what is happening around you. Open your eyes to opportunities and realize that changing your outlook is a part of growing past difficulties in life.
Open your eyes and see God’s wonder in the everyday things.
Hope you enjoy your weekend. Thanks for reading. Cheers… Kat
Having your own space to create is important. Decorating that space to make it inspirational is a bonus. The importance of finding your own place to zen out and focus is crucial to the creative process, in my humble opinion. As a mom of two littles, trying to carve out some creative time and space is tedious but much needed. Shout out to all the overly caffeinated moms out there! Make the most of bland beige walls, add a splash of color or your favorite framed art, get a little messy and unorthodox, it’s your space so embrace it.
We’ve moved twice in the past two years and now that we own our place I can finally do my collage wall that I have been wanting for so long. I just jumped in feet first and started hanging stuff up. And I LOVE it. It’s so colorful and fun.
How have you decorated your creative space? Is it modern, simple and clean, is it ordained with nice classic paintings as you sit on your wing-back chair, is it a paint splattered art studio with concrete floors, is it a giant cork board with all of your current projects, is it a colorful mishmash of things like mine? Any place can become a creative space.
Remember a creative space can be whatever you make of it, just as inspiration can come from anywhere. Whether it’s a closet turned office like Perry Covington author of the wonderful Child of Atlantis series. (Check it out here). I designed his publisher’s logo by the way! #logodesigner Or if you hide away at the local coffee shop like Jerry Rogers author of the supernatural mystery awesomeness The Fallen and The Elect series. (Check it out here). I designed both his website header and his author’s logo… wink wink! #hireme

“Build your tribe”
I cannot express how important it is to surround yourself with like minded people both in life and in your creative endeavors. As for me, I love my church and have found a group of non-judgemental, sweet, kind-hearted and all around awesome people. I also reach out to creatives in all genres and I love the feedback I get. It is truly a great feeling.
Because sometimes you just gotta chill.

A bit of history on my journey:
Hi my name is Kat Marie Lange and I am a freelance graphic designer, aspiring author, poet and most importantly, a mama. I am married to an amazingly supportive and hard working psychologist. And I can honestly say it saves on a lot of money and couch time when I have my own personal shrink. Haha. My life and my littles keep me busy for sure and it’s awesome. My family is my inspiration, my hearts and my anchor and of course my creative muses. My current creative endeavors besides my freelancing include children’s stories that I can read to my littles and share with the world, because let’s face it, there is no cuter thing than to watch a child’s face light up with excitement and wonder, when you read to them.
Back in the day when I was a wee Kat, I had no clue what I wanted to be when I grew up. In high school I didn’t feel a tug for a certain direction, in college I had a passion for writing poetry and I always felt an urge to be creative. So in retrospect, I do not know why it took me so long to realize that “hey maybe this once I should follow my heart”. My artistic passion started from writing poetry, making collages, playing with colors and even doodling that later turned into creating event invitations. This finally led to “oh there is this thing called graphic design”. Yeah my journey was a lot of those “ah-hah!” moments and there are so many times I wish I would have listened to the little voice in my head… it knows so much. So back to my “ah-hah graphic design” moment… I fell in love with the idea of graphic design. I loved being able to look at something in print and say, “yeah, I created that.” That momentary euphoria when you see your idea fleshed out. There is no greater moment (besides watching my babies grow) than to share your creativity with the world.
My creative journey is a roller coaster filled with personal excitement, searching, doubt, a bit of crazy and a whole lot of thought. It has basically been a love-hate road that led up to the recent completion of my Bachelor’s of Art Degree in Graphic Design. Focusing on the positive I do realize that my life has colored me like a Jackson Pollock painting and I do not resent that. Instead, I let everything inspire me. While I won’t bore you to death with mundane details I will be adamant about the fact that I stayed the course until I reached my goal. 14 years strong and even through all of the excuses, through heartache and hardships, through pure bliss from becoming a mother and the crazy distractions that come with that I completed my degree and I am currently freelancing.
So fast forward 2.5 years and I have grown so much. My business has slowed down because I also play the part of stay at home mom and believe me it is a balancing act for sure. Watch me juggle this ish. It’s trying and hard and tiring and awesome and rewarding and exciting, all rolled into one but honestly, I wouldn’t change it for the world. One of my goals for 2017 is to grow my business. So here on this blog you will read about my trials and my successes as I ride this creative roller coaster. So please place your hands and feet inside the vehicle at all times, because this is going to be one exciting journey.
Ready, set, create…. Kat
