The crafty folks over at BRIKA have pulled together an exclusive e-book inspired by their community of artisans and designers. (You can find me on page 4!). Download your free copy here.
Getting creative is really all about finding something you love. Because when you love something so much — whether it’s your craft, someone, or yourself — you won’t give up on it. Happy making!
Hello there my dear!
This past weekend, I was chatting with one of my BFFs about how hard we can be on ourselves. We sometimes say things to ourselves by way of our thoughts that are so harsh and judgmental, yet if a friend came to us with those same concerns we would be so much more loving and considerate in our choice of words. This conversation got me thinking about how we could learn to treat ourselves with the same love and compassion we so often offer to others.
Almost every day, I wear the Confetti by Annette I Wish You necklace — which was designed as a symbol for gifting seven wishes to someone dear to you. Yet, I had never taken the time to write to myself the seven wishes in the accompanying card. So this morning, I sat down and did just that and here it is:
To my dear Annette,
May you always be happy, seek to bring joy to others, believe in yourself, do what fulfills you, know that you are strong, and trust that you are where you need to be. And never forget that today is a gift.
The card is now on the wall right by my desk where I’ll see it every day as a reminder to be more loving and kind not only to others, but to myself. I’m curious – if you could write a love letter to yourself, what are some things you’d say?
