What is your unique gift?


This is a question Lisa Sonora Beams poses in her book The Creative Entrepreneur. This is a question, that  caused me to pause while listening to one of Holly Becker's podcast during her e-course Blogging Your way. Since both of my parents are deceased, it's painful to look back and even more pain full to dig back, but I did it anyway and yes I cried. My Mother read my thoughts in my journals, when I wasn't looking, until one day I caught her, as a rebellious child this event caused me to stop writing but the unique word combinations never stop flowing. I just quit capturing them. Working through all of this pain, cause me to realize that my Mother was in awe of me, in awe of the beauty she helped create. My Mother was in awe of the words I wove together. 

What has really surprised me this week is how those estrange words together create unique patterns for fabric designs. One of my early dreams, when I was but a child was to design fabrics. 

The research has started, the writing has started, one of my take action now steps for the new year is to design & present my first line of fabrics to and for the quilt industry. 

List one of your take action now steps no for the new year

  2. I'm still laughing at Jill's comment above- I think we all have one of those husbands!
    I was starting my New Years list just this morning so I haven't got to the steps to take part yet. I'm still sorting out the what's really important and what I can just let go.
    God bless you on your fabric design journey.

  3. I am committed to buying a new camera body and doing more photography in 2011. I've also made a commitment to eating green vegetables in 2011! From the sublime to the not-so-ridiculous.

  $5 Inspired Studios Magazine is here! Inspirations come and Inspirations go, then inspirations linger in our spirit, untouchable, by the outside world and we press on. Others call us crazy, but we press on. We ourselves, understand it not ... but we press on. Inspired Studios Magazine; shares stories of pressing on in our visions, that none can see.  I have a theory, about GOD, abundance and the gift of inspiration, it goes something like this ... GOD passes out inspiration, like Santa throwing candy at a Christmas Parade. Some children run, and grab the sweet stuff, eat it, before a parent can say no. Some, stand on the sidewalk wishing, they had the courage to step off the curb and grab it. And, then, there are the children, who quietly grab, themselves some candy, slip it, into their pockets, planning to unwrap it later, when they can  enjoy it's sweetness, it's flavor and it's bite. A Facebook post  this past Spring, led me to Seth Godin's post about the fut
