I’m creating a set of 9 Inspiration Cards from my artwork. If you’d like to order a set, let me know and I’ll get them to you as soon as they arrive.

Cost will be $3.95 per card or $27.50 for the set (plus postage).

Each set comes beautiful packaged and would make a lovely gift!

This is a fascinating talk by Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilbert about creativity – where it comes from, what it means, how to recognise and nurture it.

Take a short break from your work and enjoy. Elizabeth gives us all permission to let the creative genius lend us its spirit.

Passion passion Passion PASSION passion

It’s not just about LOVE.

It’s about anything that inspires or moves you to get creative and do some-thing.

For me, passion is about being creative and getting the juices flowing. Being inspired into action (!) and inspiring others.

Passions are the things that will get you out of bed when the alarm clock won’t. They’re the things that make you move……….

Passion is EXCITEMENT and ENERGY. Oh how I love. Oh how my PASSION moves me to get excited about life.

Oh oh oh OH.

When you find your Passion you won’t ever want to let it go – it’s yours!

Instructions for leading a creative, passionate life —

  1. Take some colour pens and some paper —
  2. Make a list of every-thing that gets your juices flowing —
  • Include anything that brings you joy or gives you a sense of self
  • What makes you feel like ‘you’?
  • Is it something that excites you?
  • What are the sounds, smells, tastes, textures, things that get you moving?

Here’s some of my list – what does yours look like? —

  • colour
  • beautiful things
  • old furniture
  • incense
  • chocolate
  • the ocean
  • timber
  • fabulous fabrics
  • vintage
  • antique crockery
  • candles
  • pretty patterns
  • tea

Get the idea? So start your list now (You can add your list in the comments to this post!)

Now take a look at your list — Do you live your list?

How much of your list is in your life?

Can you add one more of your list to your life?

How can you bring these wonderful things into your every-day?

These are your signposts for a passionate, creative life —

Create A Passionate Life!
