Post image for Harvesting Creativity & Overcoming Setbacks

Creativity can be anything from an art piece, to a written work, to a new business idea. What ties the concept together, in all cases, is that it is an outward translation of something within ourselves. We have thoughts and images running through our heads as well as feelings and emotions reverberating through our bodies. Creativity happens when we connect and utilize our talents to communicate what’s inside, breathing it into existence. Of course, that can be easier said than done. Read more »

a few things that really help me get my creativity flowing are to: *letting go of my perfectionism - let it be okay for things to be rough and ungainly in the process * letting go of my ego and how things are "supposed to look" especially 'how it will look' other people! * a hike in the forest in the woods * an "artist date" (from the book "the Artist Way" - going to places that inspire you, whatever that might be antique shops, nurseries, your favorite clothing store - I find FP shops incredibly inspiring * free flowing writing (also from "the Artist Way")- when I get stuck - i just write and it comes * reading the Artist Way - such a wonderful, spiritual & inspiring book on creativity * keeping examples of things that inspire me - i especially love a breathtaking photo, a worn antique * random objects to inspire you - it's so much fun to take one item - especially an unexpected item - and see what you can do with it - i use 'random' words or words chosen by others to write a story, but you can pick an object that you wouldn't normally photograph and take a picture of it, or draw/paint/collage it in ways different from your usual method.....

It’s been a little while since we’ve featured a wedding here on the blog.  But the other day, I got an email from MacK Mars, who works part time as a stylist for Free People.  The photos from her wedding day stopped me dead in my tracks – read on to hear her describe it in her own words, and to get a serious dose of wedding inspiration!

How many times have you found yourself standing in baggage claim, a parade of nearly identical black bags marching before you, completely bewildered as to which one belongs to you? Read more »

This is such a great idea! I especially love that it attaches with a chain to make sure it doesn't come off. My Uncle just paints a big "Not Yours!" on his suitcase, but this is so much nicer and prettier. (and less rude! haha!) https://www.etsy.com/shop/EarthChildArt?ref=hdr_shop_menu

Pinned this! I'm taking a trip to Portugal with my mom & sister - personalized baggage tags would be such a sweet gift. Warm Regards, Alexandra www.littlewildheart.com

Shawnee, I use sweet almond oil as a facial moisturizer, as it is light and nourishing. Usually I use a mixture with sweet almond oil as the base, then maybe add in a little jojoba, vitamin E and essential oils like rosemary, lavender and carrot seed. However, sweet almond oil is great by itself! Especially if any of the essential oils irritate the sensitive skin on your face.

Thank you for sharing! I love Argan Oil for hair. I found it makes my hair stronger and more shiny. XX Miri http://currentlywearing.com

The shift is subtle, until we’re suddenly acutely aware: Crumpled leaves litter the ground, school buses begin their early morning rumble, and apples, squash, and dark leafy greens start their farmer’s market takeover. Read more »
