What’s Inspiring You This Week?
Here’s What’s Inspiring Me…
This week, I was privileged to help launch
Matt Appling’s first book, Life After Art!
This book explores why we are all born creative
But, over time, stop living like we are.
We also discover the lessons Matt wants his students to learn
Before they grow up and start living Life After Art!
I am hosting a Worldwide Giveway thru April 12
So be sure to enter – and enjoy the Book Trailer below!
In The Spotlight
April, The 21st Century Housewife
One of the things I love about blogging is that,
Over time, we meet so many bloggers who
Impact our journeys along the way.
This week I’d like to introduce you to
April from the 21st Century Housewife.
I’ve been following April since my early days of blogging.
This year she is fostering An Atmosphere of Growth in her life.
Recently, she discovered one of my favorite books –
Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach –
And was inspired to write an essay, One Thing At A Time,
Which I think we all would enjoy reading!
Be sure to stop by and give April some love this week!
Highlights From Week 65
If you are a scrapbook lover, a card maker, or a paper crafter who
Would like to get your creative juices flowing this spring,
Be sure to visit The Memory Nest –
A inspiring blog filled with beautiful artwork
And creative challenges!
How many of you think of your life as a piggy bank?
I must confess, the thought never crossed my mind
Until I read Jen’s essay this week…
I encourage you too as well.
I think it’s time to make some new investments!
Need I say more?
I don’t knit… but I appreciate a
Warm, cozy blanket to snuggle under –
Especially one this pretty that’s made with so much love!
This week’s Public Service Announcement comes from
Loy and Jabba, our beautiful feline model:
Beware of pretty but poisonous plants and flowers
When it comes to your pets.
Don’t let your cats eat the daffodils!
Talent is timeless.
