I’m posting this last post in the series today in case you’d prefer to create your Vision Board on New Year’s Eve instead of New Year’s Day and I’m including excerpts from my book, The Little Spark–30 Ways to Ignite Your Creativity.
Here is the 3rd post in our series about honoring the New Year with Vision Boards:
I hope your walks are going well! As you are busy quieting your mind of noise, it’s time to start preparing to make your Vision Board. Before New Year’s Day, gather any necessary materials. Below is the Materials List from my book:
First we have to tune in–to slow down–to listen. If your life is anything like mine it is noisy even when it is quiet. I have young children and there is a wonderful constantness to this part of life. Even if I am not particularly busy, the moments, hours and days are very full and constantly noisy. It is hard to listen to the urges from my heart when there is so much pulling me to distraction–even if it is good distraction. And so we have to carve out some time from the noise.
This is the first in a series of posts to honor and celebrate the New Year.
I hope your holiday has been merry and bright. As I look back on my year, the word that comes to mind is ABUNDANT. 2014 was full of family, friends, my new book, new fabric collections, prayer flags for the Dalai Lama, this new website, teaching, speaking, and community.
Well, hello and happy holidays–
The time has come to break the internet! Please join me and my 26 blogger friends this week for a ginormous party to officially celebrate the launch of my new book, The Little Spark–30 Ways to Ignite Your Creativity. We intend to make a bunch of noise, throw some confetti and give away FIVE copies of the book to FIVE lucky winners! Five!
Hiya. My laundry is now folded and I can move on to telling you about the incredible visual feast that is the new Australian modern sewing online quilt magazine called Make Modern! Seriously…have you heard of it? I am dazzled. Check out their second-ever issue over here on their preview. The projects are gorgeous and fresh. I was honored that they did a rather long designer feature of me this month and in celebration, we are giving away three onetime subscriptions to the magazine. You are absolutely going to love it. Also, I have always been really fond of the esthetic sensibility of the vibrant modern sewing movement in Australia. They have it going on over there. I see in Australian designers an inherent lack of fear and limitation–a lot of expressivity.
Books need trailers, too! So we made some movie magic to celebrate the launch of my new book, The Little Spark–30 Ways to Ignite Your Creativity (Stash Books 2014). It is in stores now…just in time for holiday gift giving and perfect for anyone on your list who is ready to step into a life of creativity and passion! Hope you like the clip…and feel free to share it!
