My 2018 Vision board

Hey Beautiful Souls,

I wanted to share my vision board for this year with you. I did it differently this for several reasons. I created it with an image to represent my core desired feelings and my word of the year.

Core desired feelings:






Devotion (word of the year)

This one happens to be created on a file folder. Do you create a vision board or the like for the new year?

Grab some images, words that represent what you desire, choose a surface and glue them down! If you are not feeling the idea of a vision board (feels pressure  or woo to you, then create an inspiration board)

My word of the Year-2018

Hey Inspiring Souls!


A ritual I do every year for the last 5 ish years is to choose a word of the year. If you are on social media or blogs you probably have heard about this and a while ago!

The purpose of it is to have a word to sort of guide you for the year (last year I chose 3)

This year towards the end of last year I thought I knew what I wanted my word to be (and was pretty solid in that for a month or more… ) but then a different word chose me and it felt perfect for where I want to focus my energy this year.

My word for 2018 is Devotion.

You see for a long time I have allowed stuff that really doesn’t matter all that much consume my time and energy. I find myself putting off stuff that is nourishing because it takes too much time but then spending that much time or more on stuff that is not soul projects. I have not been devoted to the things I say I want to create, feel or experience.

Do you choose a word of the year? (if you don’t but are intrigued by the idea leave a comment and I will share some links with you on finding your word too!)

Treasure Tray- Creative Connection

Hey Creative Souls!

A few weekends ago I did this fast little project and thought I would share with you..

What I used was an old part of a wooden dress-up doll set my niece had. It was going to be thrown away/recycled. But I saw potential for it to hold treasures!

Many of the craft stores would have a similar idea (though you may have to get a tray and a few smaller boxes/trays to go inside of it) you might also be able to find something at a garage sale or thrift store!


I simply dusted it off

Painted it gray, or of course you could use any color!  (it took at least 2 layers) I used an inexpensive craft paint from the craft store (under $2)

Let it dry

Touched up where needed

Displayed my treasures. (see the top image, that’s the after!)

Mine could also be called an altar, but a treasure try (filled with whatever pretty, meaningful things you want) is a great way to describe it as well!

Sometimes you just have to be open to the possibilities or a new perspective for an item or a space or so many other areas these words could be applied to!

August Intention setting and Inspiration

Hey Inspiring Soul,

Welcome to August… Good lordy, how did that happen?

For the last few months, I have gotten away from entering into the month with intention. From hospital visits to the loss of my father, things have just been on react mode really. All of these things remind me yet again that I desire to live a life of intention. So I am starting where I am.

These prompts are good for anytime really especially the begging of a new month.

  1. How do I want to feel this month? (what do you most need?)
  2. What do I want to savor this month?
  3. What do I want to explore?
  4. What do I want to accomplish?

My responses to the above questions (and then some inspiration for August)

  1. I want to feel present this month, I most need to take moments to really listen to myself, my life, my body and those I love.
  2. Moments connecting with those I care about and Nature.
  3. So many things, but I will choose details of the every day through the lens in black and white.
  4. I want to get a few personal/household things done that I have been putting off and get that follow up cholesterol test done!


  • Back to school supplies (even if, especially if!) you don’t go to formal classes. Grab $5-10 and find some fun supplies they are plentiful in this month. A fave of mine is actually graph composition notebooks (.50) post it’s and fun pens.
  • Choose a book to dive into this month…. follow your gut not your should on what one you choose!
  • Get to the farmers market, buy a veggie or fruit that looks too good to pass up! Grab a bouquet of flowers.
  • Make a playlist to support those things you set intentions for (see the first part of this post!)
  • Add one tiny thing to your daily routine that feels nourishing ( a cuppa tea, make your bed, put on lotion etc…)

It’s time to… In my journal

Hey, Beautiful Souls!

A message in my journal (Messages emerge if we allow them)

Sometimes the messages I am not allowing to surface will surface through allowing space to visual journal. They can come in the form of words, images or both (or even color and patterns etc…)

These feel like perfect, timely messages in my life.

I would encourage you to take a little time with your journal (or a piece of paper, index card whatever!) and grab a word or image and allow that to be the prompt. Spend 5-10 minutes or add to it throughout the week. See what messages surface for you.

Creative Jewelry Display- Creative Connection



Hey, Inspiring Souls!

I wanted to share some “creative jewelry” organization with you all. I felt the need to mix it up a bit with my jewelry display and organization.  I found a little peg board from the dollar section at Target ($3) I wasn’t sure what I wanted to use it for exactly at first but then decided that I wanted to shift most of my bracelets there! As soon as I saw the ampersand in Michael’s I knew I wanted to use it for earrings!

Some other fun displays I have used: A key rack/hooks to organize/hang necklaces. The great thing about this stuff is that it can all be used in multiple ways if you no longer need or want it for what it’s currently being used to organize/display. A mini cupcake stand/candy dish to put my malas, earrings bits of jewelry in.

What fun, creative ways do you organize?
