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

Walking on Wednesday - Wall-E Wednesday

Back last year, I won a giveaway from Everyday Inspired, and in it was a magnetic dry erase board. For the past year, it has had a prime location on the fridge, where I would try to give my kids inspirational and motivational tidbits so they would start their day with positive thoughts, as to be out the door at 7am is a tough thing to do in a good mood.
Wall-E Wednesday - not sure who Mr. West is.

I guess my tidbits were getting a bit stale, because lately the kids have taken it upon themselves to put themed notes on it. I guess my day themed blog series have rubbed off on them. 

So for a change, I have taken their cues and let it motivate me! Today it is Wall-E Wednesday. What was Wall-E's purpose? To collect garbage. Well, today is as good a day as any to tackle the garbage, um I mean our collections of stuff, taking up main real estate in the basement. 

Pile of 'stuff'
right in the middle of the basement.


"Wall-E hubby" and I will be! Sorting, organizing, hopefully purging. The goal? to have the middle of the room clear, and to make it a workable studio space for clay and painting, and whatever other potentially messy creative endeavor comes along. 

Turtle Tuesday
Yesterday was Turtle Tuesday. That is just plain fun! I love the creativity of my kids. It so happens I sorted through my charms and buttons yesterday, in search of inspiration for my new section of Bracelet Cuffs, and what did I find? Turtle charms! So, on Turtle Tuesday, the Silver Turtle Toekini's came to fruition.

I guess I did need to get re-charged. The same old-same old wore me out. And my kids took over and brought me right out of the rut. I am back creating, the ideas are flowing, and I am finally (trying) to get organized. 

I am excited to see what tomorrow will be on the 'motivational board'. Maybe it will lead to a new Toekini, or Bracelet, or something entirely new! 

What do you think would be good motivation for Thursday?? Do you have a motivational board, or something like it too?

  1. Love it, walle! What a great idea. I have to get one up on the fridge for the boys. Just cleaned and vacuumed the downstairs. I'm done. Tomoorw, it will be upstairs.

  3. thanks girls!
    I love to see the kids have fun at the board. They usually do if while doing the dishes (we don't have a dishwasher....) and I hear them all laughing from the living room. I love it.
    Sandra, you should definitely get one, they are so handy and fun.

    Wall-e Wednesday wasn't as productive down there as I had hoped, Michele. Today is another day tho, so we are heading back down there.

  4. I love that you turned your board into a inspirational board! It is very cool that your kids have joined in and inspired you as well.

    Good luck on your cleaning project, having a space dedicated to creating sound like it could be a very inspiring space.
