Here is a small manifesto about you taking the time to finally USE your art supplies. The precious, beautiful, perfect, and expensive ones. It’s time.
It used to be that when I bought a pen I liked or a pretty little journal, I would keep them nice and pretty and “safe.” I still have Twin Star stickers that are in mint condition from my childhood. (Long live Hello Kitty and her friends!) But if there’s one thing my daughter has taught me, it is this:
Art supplies and creative supplies of all kinds are meant to be used.
Have you heard of the Painting a Day movement? It started back in 2004 when Duan Keiser set out to share his work on the internet. What started with one man has turned into thousands of artists striving to do one small painting a day – mostly every day. I am always looking for practical ways to get creativity into my life so when I discovered this idea years ago, I was intrigued.
Join me for 2030make live on the Little Girl Designs Facebook page during the month of October. It’s going to be FUN!
When I met 1:1 with a mentor during a conference recently, one of my chief questions was how to be authentic and build community in a social media driven blog world. For those of you who don’t own blog businesses, this might seem like a strange question to ask, but for me it is a real problem.
Want to make your friend’s day? Make her a spa in a box care package! Here’s how . . .
Can I tell you how excited I am to share this DIY spa kit with you today? I recently bought a stack of small boxes to use this year for gifting and immediately thought how fun it would be to use them to send a spa in a box through the mail.
The idea for a survival kit isn’t new. Maybe you received a care package or two while you were away for college. Maybe you’ve even sent some through the mail. (Total side note, but if you want more survival kit ideas, you’ve got to check out Lauren Lanker’s gem of a book, Thinking Outside the Gift Box. It’s packed full of meaningful gift ideas like this one. K—back to this presentation.)
