What's Inspiring Me Right Now

This has been quite a cathartic week for me. I've been letting go of all my "ghosts" from my past and feeling such peace and comfort because of it. I have this community to thank.

Letting go has allowed a whole new world to open up for me. I can feel my writing coming back, my creativity starting to flow again. I find myself listening and learning and finding "stories" in others again. All of this is quite exciting for me.
My heart is full of love and gratitude...just in time for Thanksgiving, right? Thought I'd share what is inspiring me right at this very moment...

*LOVE this Blog called "Good Grief". It is filled with heartfelt ways to scrap your loved ones who have passed on.

*Thanksgiving week is coming up! For as long as I can remember the week of Thanksgiving has been my favorite. As a kid I looked forward to the extra days out of school along with spending time at home. Now I love having my children home and filling our home with the cozy smells of turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie. There is also the Macy's Parade, our annual Thanksgiving movie night and shopping with my Mom and daughter. This will be a GREAT WEEK!!

*Christmas music is on full blast in our home!! We are fortunate enough to have a music system throughout our house...that is our favorite feature and one of the main reasons we bought this house!! XM/Sirius radio started playing their Holly and Christmas Traditions channels this week which have been on everyday here. Christmas music brings such joy and comfort to me. I LOVE it!!

*Ali's "December Daily" has inspired me to create one of my own this year which means I've actually taken the time to scrap the past few weeks. I've never participated in this challenge before so really looking forward to this!!

*These 2 kids of mine
continue to inspire each and everyday. They make me want to be the BEST wife and mom I can be. They make me want to live the Gospel. They make me want to be the best ME there is! I love these 2 and am so proud of them!!

So what has been inspiring you lately? Leave me a comment below and you'll have a chance to win a cool Autumn stamp from Hero Arts!!!


  1. Right now I am inspired to make gifts & cards for others. I am finishing up a baby scrapbook for friends who had their first baby about a week and a half ago. Once I finish that, it is on to Christmas cards and gifts.

  2. Such a great post! Lately I have been so inspired by the great blogs of other creative and amazing people (including YOU!) I find such inspiration in the sites I visit regularly. There are amazing people out there - and I love getting to know all of them! I am doing Ali's Daily December, too, and really look forward to capturing some great moments of the coming month.

    Thanks so much for your really great comments on my Blog! I so enjoy visiting yours, too! I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving and have a great time making those Family Ornaments! (I look forward to reading about the process!!!)


I appreciate your thoughts and ideas...they inspire me!! I will be visiting you soon. Have a CREATIVE day!!
