Be free-floating, allowing the situation to surround you, and be in it. Take in the full surroundings, including the temperature of the water.

Addition's Style - a true Inspiration!

One of my favorite blogs, Everday Inspired,
by Addition's Style,
had a giveaway last month,
 (well in January - February just flew by)
and I WON!
It was during what I am now calling
my 'lucky streak'
(I won several giveaways in a row!)

This was a huge prize pack,
packed so great with a purple ribbon...my favorite!

It was full of inspirational things,
much needed at the time for me,
because Raige was celebrating her first year,
and planning the second year to be 
full of things Raige has not done before.
First, a totally neat necklace -
with a gear (to get you moving),
beautiful charm (to calm you),
a beautiful copper washer,
and a baby gold washer to go with it.
There was a keychain with
'SUCCESS'
stamped in it -
perfect for the daily reminder
to keep going and strive to succeed.

There was a dry-erase board,
probably meant for me to write my goals of the day on. 

Instead, it is achieving a greater purpose at this time.
It is on the fridge, and keeps track of whose turn it is to
wash, dry, and put away the dishes,
and whose turn it is to scoop the kitty litter (KLSK).


My kids also have the drawing of the day on there,
which depicts one of them in a funny way.
It changes every day, each one taking a turn,
though this one shows
they weren't too into drawing last night....

The post-it's included are bound to help me organize,
ahem...
something Raige has not been too good at in the past year.


And finally, the book!
The Handmade Marketplace - How to Sell Your Crafts Locally, Globally, and Online, by Kari Chapin.

The book is full of helpful information, stories from successful online sellers, and tips and advice for each step of the 'selling your handmade' path.

Tomorrow, I will post more about the book, as it deserves its own post.

In the meantime - please check out Everyday Inspired - it will keep you motivated, give you fresh ideas, and you will ultimately find yourself looking forward to the journal prompts, the beautiful pictures, and being inspired!

Then you can reward yourself with
a uniquely cool item
