My name is Toi Stori. I’m a lover, a writer, a dreamer, a free spirited deep thinker. My love for creativity knows no boundaries. From music to art, food to decor – it’s hard to limit myself to just one egg in one basket. Instead of seeing a random white egg, I think of the many ways I can use it – from a delicious omelette to creating a home-made moisturizing hair conditioner. The basket is no different. How many other things can it hold? What does it look like and how versatile is its functionality?
It’s very easy to tell someone to find one thing you’re good at and stick to it. But, what happens when you’re not only good at lots of things, but those things also bring you lots of happiness? The age old advice of sticking to one thing has gotten pretty – well- old. In this world we live in today, it helps to be open minded, creative, self- sufficient and well informed. You don’t want to miss out on living the best life you can while you’re here, because some really really old person told you no one will take your ideas seriously.
I’ve been told that over and over again. If you’re gonna sing -sing! If you’re gonna write – write! If you’re gonna cook – cook! But you can’t do all three. My response: Why not? This mind of mine just can’t stop cranking out idea after idea, story after story, experience after experience. I’ll admit, my thoughts could be a bit scattered at times but, lets face it, i’m human. The challenge was to find a way to reel it in, without sacrificing my natural God given desire to want to create anything I wanted.
Then I came up with this amazing idea! I needed a controlled environment where i’m allowed and encouraged to think, to create, to explore, to love and to grow without being judged. I needed a place to feel comfortable, at peace, safe and secure – a place that felt like home. Home is where I come up with my best ideas and where I try them out. At home, I can sing to the top of my lungs, write until the wee hours of the morning, research recipes and create a masterpiece in my very own kitchen. In special areas of my home, I am free to experiment with my hair and makeup and try home-made remedies and beauty products. My whole existence -it seems – has the unbelievably strongest desire to create and explore.
My goal is to share it all with you every step of the way. Come into the comfort of my home and be inspired to Take On Innovation.
