Raining Umbrellas: Lessons in Creativity by Vicki Dvorak

Hello lovelies! Long time, no write. I hope all is well with you. :)

For all you creative minds that still visit here, check out Vicki's amazing online course that is sure to spark some inspiration. I can speak from experience; this course is great especially for those who are in a bit of a creative slump i.e. mental block. That was my problem. It took advice from a fresh mind to encourage me to refocus.....actually expand my focus which helped me notice TONS of inspiration in my everyday life. I loved it.

If you sign up, let me know what you think! Vicki has informed me that she's added some new ideas and prompts.

Word of the Year

The Lettered Cottage

When I came across this post, I was instantly stoked. I thought "FINALLY"!!!

I am one of those kinds of people that is in constant need of motivation & inspiration in order to feel I am even capable of achieving my hopes, dreams, wishes & goals. I have a tendency to have the greatest of intentions, start a new project/habit/resolution, then totally drop the ball.

That said, I am always searching for quotes and words that can sum up a feeling I have or want to have. I am convinced that these inspiring words of wisdom help switch my brainwaves around into believing I CAN be consistent, persistent, confident and downright ballsy with my way of life. Nonstop fear of change, the unknown, and failure can be utterly debilitating to someone with a low self esteem. Just sayin'...

The word that lept into this little pea brain of mine was INTREPID.

I would love for anyone that still reads this blog to consider choosing their own "Word of the Year" with me. Leave a comment so I can be nosy and take a peek at your choice. Good luck & BEST WISHES to living everday with this word in mind. Cross your fingers that I do the same. :)

Suprise!!! It's Tori.

Upside Down

Blood Roses DIV

LONG TIME, NO SEE!!! To all those subscribers to this little blog of mine, thank you so much for hanging in there. I'm back...kinda. I've been dying to write to you all and share an abundance of stuff that has happened as well as things that I've sporadically stumbled across (inspiration wise).

Just to clarify, this is an insanely random post. A friend of mine posted a link (on *hack* FB) of Tori Amos "Love Song". This post sparked a flareup of memories.

As a young teen, Tori was one of the first artists that I really gravitated towards for not only her sound, but for her lyrics, her imagery, her reputation, her sense of self...all kinds of things! I adored her! Still do...just don't listen to her as much for some reason.

Anyway, I wanted to share some links of my personal fave songs. Most of them will be live versions for the simple fact that my daddy bought me a 'Tori in concert' on VHS. I fell asleep to this very show every night for nearly 2 YEARS!!! I loved is so much. It still hits me in that squishy place. I hope you enjoy. xD
