How to Make your own Idea Book

idea book DCWV

We all leaf through magazines and Pinterest, Instagram and Google and we all come across beautiful pictures of DIYs we want to try. I have a stack of magazines with page corners turned over and a inspiration folder on my desktop full of beautiful pictures. Somehow I never get around to making these things and the ideas stay in books and computer folders.

I finally decided to do something about it and created my own idea book. It’s super easy to make one and it’s the perfect place to store all the ideas of things you want to do ready for a rainy day for when you want to do something but don’t know what.

I love the new Insta Photo line from DCWV! From the chunky little colorful folders to the papers, pocket pages and especially the photo booth props! Everything about this collection is Continue reading

Positivity and Inspiration with Mantra Me!

The Mantra Me Collection

I love to surround myself with positivity! It fuels all of my work. Whether it is meeting up with creative folk and entrepreneurs or putting up inspiring quotes in my workspace, I actually make a concerted effort to keep the positive vibes coming.

It should come as no surprise that I love quotes and inspirational messages. That’s why I really enjoyed playing with the new Mantra Me collection from DCWV.

I love simple DIYs that can be finished in under an evening. I feel that makes the DIY accessible to all of us who lead busy lives with family and work and our homes to take care of. I also believe taking time out for creativity is super important but given our lifestyles it isn’t practical to assume that oodles of time is Continue reading

How to be Creative this Weekend!

The DCWV Project stacks

As you all know I am a huge fan of balancing the brain. I believe we’re all intended to use both the left and right sides of our brains – not just one. I myself come from a mathematical background and have always felt rested and recharged when, tired of numbers and endless calculations I used to turn to my arts and crafts.

But it’s easy to tell someone to be creative and much harder to actually show them the way. There are so many different tools and products available in craft stores that even browsing them can seem o be overwhelming. In fact truth be told – there are times when I feel overwhelmed when I enter my craft studio – there are so many things to choose from that I actually feel overwhelmed and the urge to create something vanishes.
