I’m taking a (long…) break

After almost 8 years, first as The Inspired Little Pot, then as me (quite simply: KB), I’ve decided it’s time for a little pivot.

I’ll keep this short and sweet. I’m planning on taking 6-12 months ‘off’, away from the beautiful little space I have spent so much time in – creating, sharing, connecting, guiding. Recent personal events have led me to consider my gut feels, and I need some downtime to really assess what it is I am being called to do in this lifetime.

The natural DIY/sustainable/eco cause will always be one I advocate for, ALWAYS, but not in a public sense – just for a while. I may return with fire in my belly or I may not. One way to find out…

It’s a huge leap for me; who am I if I’m not the ‘girl with the natural DIY recipes’? I thought that when the time came to officially share this news I would feel sadness, but the weight has instantly lifted and it feels sooooooo right. My legacy will live on – on thousands of countertops, bookshelves, computer screens, and (hopefully) hearts.

I plan on keeping this website and my social platforms (Instagram & Facebook chat group) live – the community and content, and the value they will offer to oldies and newbies alike, is priceless. I’ll just be mostly MIA.

I’m embracing this pivot and all it will offer me and my family (and I’ll finally have the time and headspace to ‘water the seeds’ I’ve been planting – watch this space 🙌😉).

‘Thank you’ doesn’t sound like enough, but thank you. To those of you I met in person (at the warehouse and at events), those of you I feel like I know through the computer screen, those who have supported me (hands-on and virtually – friends, family, colleagues, staff), the wider community of humans whose paths crossed with mine – thank you.

The opportunities have been out of this world – 5 published books, TV segments, podcasts and radio, guest speaking, book weeks … Wowee – that has all been character building and I didn’t take a second of it for granted. The memories will last a lifetime.

Peace out for now beautiful people ✌️💚
