About Me

I have been a zombie, numb to the world I live in, just going with the flow and conforming to the status quo.

That’s me (Janet) on the left, and my sister on the right

The corporate world is where I ended up when I was moving unconsciously through life, but I have seen the light. In my heart I want to sprint like Usain Bolt to that light, but years of brainwashing to think it is always “better to be safe than sorry” means I can only muster enough courage to slowly inch towards it, a day at a time but I am in motion.

This light at the end of the tunnel is different for everyone I’m sure, but my light wants to challenge the status quo and that working a standardized 9-5 job is not the only way to make a living in this world. Instead I want to make a living creating and adding value to the world so I leave it a little bit better than before.

 Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. – Rainer Maria Rilke

So here goes nothing, a step towards the unknown where the path is unfamiliar and honestly a little bit scary. I am starting Born To Be Felt to share my creations with anyone who is willing to spare a moment of their time and hopefully this is a helps me move an inch in the direction of the light.

I hope you love my patterns as much as I enjoyed creating them and they add some value in your life. Whether they put a smile on your face, ignites a creative spark within you or even if it is to make the creations and on-sell them in your own endeavours to escape the typical 9-5 work I am grateful for your support.

If you have your own story to share or just want to get in touch please feel free to email me at borntobefelt@gmail.com.

Until next time stay creative, live a life that makes you feel alive and forever challenge the status quo!
