Sorry for the neglect recently, everyone! I’m in full wedding mode and haven’t been able to concentrate on anything other than timelines, checklists, and seating. 10 days to go!
It’s good that my wedding procrastination led me to Decor8, where I found a profile on Kelly Rae Roberts and her new book, Taking Flight: Inspiration and Techniques to Give Your Creative Spirit Wings. Decor8 described Kelly as “a successful mixed-media artist who didn’t listen and develop her creative side until she was 30 but once she did, she found nothing but success by listening to her inner longing.” What an inspiration to everyone who wants to Grow Up!
While this book is celebrated for taking you through the techniques necessary to make mixed-media art, the inspirational quotes, encouraging stories, and pages of eye candy are worth taking note of even if you’re not a literal artist.
To see Kelly Rae’s work, head over to her Etsy shop as well as her blog, Kelly Rae: Taking Flight into Art, Love and Life. I have a feeling that this work of art is going to find it’s way to a coveted spot above my desk (that is, when I get one. Damn you, tiny NYC apartments!):
If you can’t read the text, it says:
Unleash your joy
Embrace your truth
Pick more wild flowers
Collect moments of kindness
Ask for what you need
Speak of your gratitude
Listen to forgiveness
Surround yourself with good people
Trust your creative spirit
Wear red shoes
Let it go
Sigh. Should I snatch it up now, even though it will be homeless for a while? It’s so gorgeous, so inspiring, and so true.
What do you use for inspiration?
