"You must explore to find inspiration."
I am constantly exploring new ideas, products, methods, and ways to teach. So, this website is about providing inspiration for you and your home by simply sharing ideas, designs, and products in hopes of inspiring you.
For me, inspiration is experiencing that "Aha!" moment. It's when my ideas come together, I'm pleased with my project, and I know that what I am doing is right. Where do I find inspiration? Everywhere. I find it in the smallest detail of a pattern. I find it while randomly searching the Internet. I find inspiration in art, nature, and other cultures. I find it when I step out of my comfort zone and try something new or revisit something old. The most important thing is, you must explore to find inspiration.
Last summer, exploring took on a whole new meaning for me when I had the opportunity to visit my son and daughter-in-law in Europe. My sister and I were inspired in many ways while touring England, Ireland, and Spain. It was an incredible journey and I look forward to going again this summer.
So, as I begin to explore this new-found interest, I hope you will join me on this adventure. I found out today that my name means "voyager" - so I'm taking that as a sign:) Please check back often, be patient with me, and let's celebrate our successes together. I will try to include a variety of topics and ideas to hopefully inspire you in a grand or subtle way.
When I started thinking about getting back into business, I put some serious thought into the name. Using Miss Loxie's Boutique didn't seem right, since the overall concept isn't quite the same and I didn't want to convey the idea that I was going back to a storefront location. A fresh look was in order and I was super excited when I realized I could purchase my own domain - which led to Loxie.style. The name really fits because this website, my business, and my blog are all about my style - not necessarily in the fashion sense, but my way of doing things - that's just my style!
