It’s time to discover the scared act of photography as a gratitude practice. You will connect more fully, and feel more present when you begin noticing – appreciating the world around you with your camera in hand.

We will take pauses – and take a moment to stop and notice the smells, sounds, and beauty all around us.

Join us in this self-paced ecourse with beautiful pdf workbooks with guided journal prompts and photography exercises to help you unearth your creativity that you haven’t expressed in too long.

When is the last time you created – just for you?

Take this time to free yourself.

Open up to the creativity already within you.

Give it time and space to express the art and creativity that is uniquely you.

You deserve this as a gift to yourself.

You must fill your cup so that you can fill anothers.

It is a beautiful act of self-care to listen to your heart and give yourself space to create.

Class is enrolling NOW! But HURRY! Class will fill up fast!

{new etsy taste test tool: search & shop superbly}

Etsy just came out with a new curated search tool based on the items you choose, and gives you a list of recommendations based on your taste. This is a really handy tool for sorting through the ocean of amazingness that is etsy.com. It helps you streamline your search and wade through the seemingly endless ocean of wares while also introducing you to new talent and beauty on the site.

I found some amazing new artists, designers and photographers with an eye for detail. And the vintage and romantic clothing picked for me was exactly what I would pick for myself.I really love elloh’s Ode To The Library print:

and theloveshop’s THINK HAPPY BE HAPPY print.

and ShadedMemories’ drops of light photograph

and ThatGirlNaNaNa’s i’ve loved you so long print

So overall this is a great new tool. It would be great for picking out unique gifts for your loved ones this Christmas! Have fun with it!

Try out Etsy Taste Test for yourself today!

{Thanks to Holly Becker from decor8® for introducing me to the tool! :)}

{things i want to do today…}

We heart it / Visual bookmark for everyone.

I am inspired by this journal entry found via tumblr. Not exactly what my list would be like…but it definately got me thinking…

Instead of a boring old list, why not make the list sing. So while we check the items off, we can dance to the music of our lives….:)

{Inspiration Monday: Did you do something creative today?}

inspiration1

Questions to ponder:

Did you do something creative today? What was it? What was it that made you get creative? Something you did? Some place you went? Something you saw? Please give as much detail as possible when answering with your comments.

Hopefully this topic can spark some new ideas for being creative & be a launching pad for us all to find & share some resources (books, websites, activities, ideas, etc…) that really seem to get the creative juices flowing….

So, what did you do today that was creative, and what was your source of inspiration? Or your muse?

I’ll go first: {mine for today was watching my son play at the park in the sunshine…He always inspires me. His innocence. His happiness. His smile. It’s amazing to get to see the world all over again through his eyes.}

Here’s a resource, too: I have a book called the Creativity Workbook: Helping You Connect with Your Creative Self that has some really great ideas.

They separate the 5 senses:  SIGHT, SMELL, TOUCH, TASTE, & HEARING into categories, and there are little exercises that ask questionsthat help you tap into that inner creative just waiting to be roused from slumber…

Here’s a sample:

“Choose an object, a view, or even a person you see everyday. Study your subject, looking closely for details that you may not have consciously noticed before. Simply enjoy looking for as long as you like. Write your impressions – key words, phrases, random thoughts – while looking at your subject.

Sketch your subject.

What about this subject is appealing – why did you choose it?

Imagine your subject in new settings. How would this change your view of it?”
