All we need are our own two hands…Read More

Totally needed this. It's funny how just discussing creation brings forth creation. xo Michaela

I'm a silent reader and viewer but I have to say it that I'm a bit guilty of submerging in this computer-driven world too. My whole life I've been creating things, expressing myself through giving life to the projects in my head. Now, I'm in the place in my life where I have to make certain decisions, where I'll be changing some things in my life and I feel this need of creation more than ever but at the same time my hands ale like tied up to sth. I do some projects but they are not those from the deepest abyss of my heart. I would like to do so much but some unresolved issues are holding me back. Perhaps my hands don't know which project they should do first as there is so many in the line. And I'm quite sure that they will start to cooperate with the need when my non-artistic issues will be no longer active in my head. Sorry if it's not the place where I should put this comment but I know what you mean by saying: " When you feel it, you just have to do it." But what when you feel it, you just have to do it but somehow you can't. I'm ready to feel it (your quote) from head to toe again. Thank you for making my thoughts not afraid to be shared. : ]

Kirby - I completely agree - I love how unapologetically enthusiastic she is about her passions.
Kirby -Nov 30, 2015, 2:39PM
M Train is one of the best books I've read in a while. It is a book that sucks you in. Just as Patti talked about being transported into Murakami's world...we are transported in to hers. Her writing is so rich. So hypnotic. So full of life. I love her enthusiasm for all things. In a day where most people are ashamed to talk about their passions, Patti is a light in the darkness. x Kirby

I did it Thanksgiving evening (when a few min before, we were all complaining ab the evilness of starting black fri on Thanksgiving, lol). Sneakers are a Must, along w/ water and fruits. Snagged a few great deals incl a maroon bedding set for my mom :) it seemed EVERYONE walked out w/ pillows, bedding, and blenders lol. I missed Santa at Macy's Santaland :( but the FP dept soothed my broken heart :)

Totally lovely post

I've been closing my eyes a lot today and envisioning Thanksgiving's from a few years past. Where I'd walk into my mother's house, she'd greet me with her sing-song "Helloooo..." and we'd smile at each other. We'd laugh and talk about life, and how funny it is to be a grownup. We'd do puzzles, decorate the house for Christmas, watch a musical, and maybe make cinnamon rolls. The small town where she lived has a holiday craft bazaar every weekend after Thanksgiving, and we'd make our way up there to see all the handmade goodies. Sometimes I'd play the piano while she'd make some treats, and she'd stand behind me reminding me of all the little piano rules I have forgotten since I quit taking piano lessons from her in 1996. "Remember? That means crescendo, get louder and then there, that means to go soft again." I'd laugh and tell her to stop looking over my shoulder because she was making me nervous. She died in 2014 at age 58 from cancer. Since then, this holiday has never felt right. It was our holiday. Last year I spent it in a fog, it was my first holiday without her. This year I've foregone the family festivities and my husband and I are having a quiet one at home with ribeye steaks, and for good measure we've bought a puzzle to do. But when I close my eyes, I can see it all like it's happening now. I just hate opening them up and realizing it can never be again.

Post image for How To Be Grateful In Tough Times

Though the ups and downs, it’s important that we still give thanks. Read More

Kimberly -Nov 30, 2015, 8:37AM
The past few years have truly been difficult for me as well. Every morning I search for inspiration as I go to a job I don't care about with people who don't understand me. I always seem to end up on this blog while checking emails. :-) There is something to be said about finding thankfulness in being yourself and trusting that I am already who I need to be. This adult thing is kind of hard, however I have started a yoga practice every day on my lunch break to get me through the long day of sitting and to have a moment of solitude to remind myself that I am lucky I have a job and am able to motivate my body to move. Thanks for the daily inspiration and the friendship each day... I really need it.

Thank you for sharing Victoria and Megan. I hope you both had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Megan, I am so sorry to hear about the situations you had to endure this year - you sound like one tough cookie... resilient and powerful. Your words touched my heart <3 xx, Joanna

This was so lovely to read. I didn't know how much I needed some creative renewal until I read this. Also, I love that the structure itself was so organic and flowed so naturally, (instead of being a type A list with bullet points.) Thanks for sharing this! xx

First of all, those pictures are beautiful! Every time the year slowly starts to end I reflect on the things that were good that year, and try to see things that didn't work out so well as meant to be.

Ah I am in love with the journal in the photo! May I ask where you bough it from?
nancy -Nov 10, 2015, 1:18PM
I leave £5.00 notes in random places. Not necessarily in plain site. Sometimes I will pick a random address and put money in an envelope with a note that says 'buy something for yourself' and post it. My thinking is that if I do things anonymously even better. Saturday a lady was choking in a restaurant I didn't hesitate to help, I was surprised that only me and the one staff member were the only ones to help.
