This is the title of the new presentation I am working on for 2009. In fact, I'm giving it today for the first time. In it I am exploring the five elements of creative rhythm — things that need our attention if we are to sustain our enthusiasm for scrapbooking or any other kind of self-expression or art, long term.
But … let's forget all the deep stuff and just celebrate the fact that I am probably going to ROCK (positive affirmation here) with FIVE things I LOVE right now.
1. This song. It's called "Crayola Doesn't Make a Color for Your
Eyes" OK, serioulsy … this is such an adorable thing. Geof and Trey
heard it in the car not too long ago and told me about it. We Googled
and now we're all humming it. Love.
2. Cute magnet or dry erase boards from Adorn It.
3. Basic Grey Bittersweet
I played with this yesterday. I needed to do some "just because" creating to get into the swing of things.
I love the browns and *of course* the way the patterns work together. Perfect for Valentine's Day.
4. This article on Energy Management. I read this a year or more ago and came across the link in my files. Love the reminder that my energy, unlike my time is NOT linear. My energy is a cyclicle thing that requires both periods of intense engagement and intentional recovery.
If this is a new idea for you, read this.
5. This adorable doormat from Organize.com
