It’s important for me as a creative to make sure I’m consuming good quality creations… not just a mindless scroll of blabbering. Here’s my scrapbook of all the things that have fed my eyes, heart, brain & soul lately. I usually collect all the things that inspire me in my art journal… consider this my digital version!

Filled with things I’ve read, things I’ve beauty, things I’ve watched…

Get yourself a big ole cup of tea… this is a long one!

You can find all the other posts where I’ve shared my digital scrapbook here.

Daisy Yellow Art’s art journalling lookback is just gorgeous.

Oh this is GORGEOUS… the *backs* of famous artworks!

Art inspired by the Atlantic Ocean.

Read this beautiful illustrated essay: I stopped speaking when I was 19 years old.

Joy just leaps from this Austin Kleon journal page.

Grace Farris on A Cup Of Jo is always delightful.

Alisa Burke’s spooky journal is such a vibe!

YES. YES. YES. From Grant Snider.

Mary Ann Moss’ art travel journal of the Cotswolds in England… I SIGH WITH DEEP HAPPINESS!

I can tell I’m a white middle aged woman because this travel diary of a trip to Cornwall has me positively AGUSH and SWOONING.

Handmade Home’s favourite before and after pictures of their interior design projects is just lovely.

These three are especially good:

Automate your investments so the money invests without you having to think about it.

Ignore the market’s fluctuations. 

There is never an ideal time to invest. Pundits will always say it is either too high and about to crash or it is already dropping and will continue to fall.

One of the things I wanted to do in assisting DJ was to make sure we approached all our films from a business-oriented point of view. I knew he would crush the creative. But I was always looking at it from the point of view of, ‘How will this work within an enterprise model?’ That carried over to Dwayne, looking at him as this incredibly talented individual, and saying, ‘Now, how do I build a corporation around him? How do I support him? Where is the marketing? Where are our extensions? Who are the partners who can help me duplicate?’ It’s like at Apple, except the technology is Dwayne Johnson.”

Seek out what magnifies your spirit. Who are the people, ideas, and books that magnify your spirit? Find them, hold on to them, and visit them often.

Allow yourself the uncomfortable luxury of changing your mind.

Go forth and make!

We need your art, your voice, your offerings in the world!

Big love,
