Sheena and the Emit

October 11, 2016


Meet Sheena, a Chicago blogger that I had the chance to photograph and learn a bit about for this week's post.We asked a couple quick questions to get a bit of insight. Enjoy!

Are you left or right brained?

-Right-brained, for sure. I grew up drawing up bad sketches and writing extra chapters to my favorite books. I always imagined myself working in a creative field. I guess you could say my blog and photography are the two places where I get to wear the creative hat.

Describe in one word your pursuit in life.

- Happiness. I think it's important to find happiness in whatever you do. And if it doesn't make you happy, don't do it. But I know it's easier said than done.

What was the last thing that captured your attention and made you stop?

-I went to the Wicker Park/Bucktown area and was walking down this pathway near the entrance of the 606 trail and there was a mural being painted by an artist on a huge brick wall. One of the faces painted on the mural was one of my cousins! At first I thought it was just a coincidence because I couldn't believe it but I texted him to find out and it was him on the wall! How cool is that?! His face is living on a wall in Chicago!

What do you never leave home without?

-At the risk of sounding like a true millennial, my phone. Not only is it a means of communication but I can access everything from it. I can plan out social media posts or read the news. But I do want to put it out there that I'm not using my phone 24/7. I make it a point to put it away during my commute to and from work so I can read an actual book instead. 

Pick something that you would think of as your own personal texture.

-Cotton-it's soft, comfortable and strong.

Just Go Create

August 29, 2019

"To keep going, is to believe that there is always an invitation, is a truly creative act... There's sort of a healthy defiance involved. A hoping against hope. God continues to use  creation, creativity, and the arts to point to and unlock hope, mystery, beauty, and love. An open invitation for us all."

I’ve made the hard decision to close CHC.

My vision to awaken the beauty in people through creating beautiful products and experiences remains in tact; CHC is simply no longer the vehicle to my vision. My depth of gratitude for your support (every step of the way) is inexpressible.
