There is also a beautiful new online magazine that came out today called Sparrow.  Their tagline is “inspiring deliberate living” and it’s full of mindful, inspiring posts.  Check out my article, Play With Paint and Be Free.Your Personal Reflection: The women who started these online magazines had a vision – they followed their hearts, took some risks, faced their fears and put a lot of hard work, love (and probably some tears) to make them a reality.  What small steps can you take, RIGHT NOW, towards a creative dream YOU have?

Smile! (and your chance to win)

New Beginnings…

Happy March!  We have had an awesome winter – staying home, enjoying the abundant snow, having fires, making cookies and lots of snuggling.  Even though the weather is still pretty chilly, I find my excitement rising just knowing spring is near.  
With spring coming means it’s time to get started on planting our seedlings.  Last year was the first time we attempted a full-size garden and this year we are doubling our plot at our community garden to a 10 by 25 foot space.  Any tips and suggestions for getting started, since I’m still a newbie, are much appreciated!
Getting ready to plant seeds got me thinking about how preparing and caring for a garden has such similarities to the love and attention our own lives need.  I share more about this in a new article for Rhythm of the Home magazine.  Feel free to stop over there and read, Cultivate New Beginnings and Allow Your Dreams to Bloom.
And don’t miss the amazing giveaway going on right now on the Rhythm of the Home blog!  They are giving away amazing prizes and all you have to do is leave a comment by this coming Monday.  
One prize includes a spot in the upcoming Wish Big Ecamp that I’ll be teaching at in just a few weeks.  (So excited!)  One winner will enjoy a spot in this weeklong adventure which includes 10 creative workshops, plus tons more.  It is going to be so incredibly nourishing, inspiring and fun!  Will you be joining us?
