Monthly Challenge.... Inspiration Cards

Good Day,

A Cowork recently asked my why i start my emails and other internal messages with Good day.

I have been doing that for YEARS... i really do know when i started doing this but it makes me feel good to start my messages with Good day.  Maybe by saying it so much it will actually be a good day.


The monthly challenge  in the Journal workshop was inspiration cards.

I want to inspire and be inspired and try to keep that ourlook so creating these cards will be a help.

While having dinner with my sister and her family they start conversation by telling about Roses and Thorns.  The good part of the day are the Roses of course and the bad part of the day are Thorns. 



Celebrate What make the day beautiful!  I really like this card 


Endure the trouble the may happen.  Well i guess it should say that will happen because there is alway some kind of trouble we face every day.  With the right attitude we make it through. 


Thrive.... when i close my eye and think on the word thrive.. BLOOM, DEVELOPE, FLOURISH, GROW, PROSPER, SHINE, ADVANCE, INCREASE, PROGRESS, RISE, RADIATE.
It is hard to put that all on a card so be prepared to see more cards with these words.  


Determination.  Ever see a plant grow through ashpalt in a parking lot.  That is what i mean by determination. 


Turmoil Resistant...  Ha !   At work we had a conversation about the different between resistant and proof.  The cell phone is to be water resistant not waterproof.  Downtime for the first time this year!   So with that conversation in mind I thought what do we all want to be  ...  Trouble free or Turmoil proof  when all we can hope for is be to Turmoil Resistant.


Right now these cards on are my cube wall.  Great conversation starters.  Love it. 

Have a great day everyone.

Mood Board

A Mood Board is a type of collage consisting of images text and sample of objects in a composition.
Graphic, Interior, Industrial, Fashion Designers, Photographers and other Creative Aftist use this to illustrat the style they wish to pursue.

January's challenges at Jennibellie workshop was creating a Mood Board that shows what you want for 2016.

I am a person who is easily distacted.  Anyone who knows me knows I can be talking about something and if a pretty butterfly flies by I am like  look at the beautiful colors.  I have gotten better with time but it still happens from time to time.  I created a mood board to participate in the January challenge.

I created the mood board on the cover of my multi-media paper book and It is finish for the moment.



I printed pictures from the 1970 of east livery where I grew up.  Both my parents were alive and my youngest sister was born so this time period I had a complete family.



Everyone in this picture has red ruby slippers "There is no place like home."  I love returning to the east liberty part of town.  It is hard to see the work love so I  have to get a new white gel pen and make the work pop!



The Brass Rail my dad would get the family fish sandwiches from there.  So as I find the right fish stickers it will be place somewhere in this area.




Sometimes you are so busy taking care of business you forget to Dream.  Some of my best creative ideas come to me in a dream.



The Dancing yellow dress.  Ever put on a dress and feel wonderful and happy and pretty that you just have to dance.



When I take time for me I create, by drawing, painting, sewing, crocheting writing.  So this is a reminder to take some me time.




I love owls these are saying " IT'S OWL GOOD!"  lol!

As time goes on I know I will add to it which is the main reason it is on the cover.

2016 word INSPIRATION

 I have to add this to the mood board.  A reminder to be inspired and inspire  other of live the life they love.
