Introducing Coriander Bits!

So, I've had this idea on the brain for months, it's nothing revolutionary but it will be unique because there is no other me, as far as I know. Clearly my production team is lacking because, well, you're lookin' at her. These are my first webisode baby steps, they're supposed to be rough, and terribly basic, but that just means they can only get better from here! The point is I'm finally doing it and I encourage all of you to tackle that project you've been kept awake over. Anything is possible!

So that's that! Stay tuned!

Wow, what a great idea! What you said about just getting on with DOING your ideas really gave me a boost because it is just the place I find myself setting up a tiny cut flower business from my garden. Inspiring, thank you! Look forward to more C. Bits and maybe learning some classy dance moves along the way!!

You're too cute! Love the Coriander Bits :) With everything a mac can do these days who needs a productions team!
p.s. Have you seen these posts on design sponge?
I think they're a really fun and interesting idea. Maybe you could do a little feature about a particular flower, for all of us aspiring florists, on each webisode too!

This is great!! You inspired me to get started on my similar idea - to post my video observations of everyday things! Just like you I'd been waiting for the "perfect" conditions - why not just do it!!

I LOVE your new idea - I really, really enjoyed the first Coriander Bits!! You have such positive energy and you have the ability to shift the direction of my day!! Thanks for putting this plan into action, I can't wait for another Bit.

Just wanted to say "way to go" on the coriander bits- I love how you opened up about your initial reluctance and your decision to override your inner critic! I'm co-owner of a small Toronto flower shop too (don't worry, totally different 'hood!)and I know how easy it would have been to NOT step outside the box. Nice work!

Daniella said...

I love it! So true, you can do anything on your with what you've got... can't wait for more episodes!
