Stormy Inspirations

Winter storms that come and go always teach us to stop, look up and listen. For me, stormy sunsets, and weather patterns passing through bring the most inspiration. I always use my iPhone to capture inspiration and I'm so impressed with nature's generosity...just look up!

Storms give us color combinations, shades, textures, light and dark tones and all of these are authentic elements for creative direction and problem solving. I'm always referring to the best color consultant on the planet...nature and when a project or situation calls for some color direction, layering, or time to simmer a bit. Waiting which is everyone least favorite thing, on a project, answer, or results, usually turns out better that expected ;-).  

So take note that whatever your working on nature's got a solution just above you so look up and pay attention you just may find exactly what you're searching for...a natural solution.

Winter is filled with nature's Valentine's












Valentine days are prolonged in nature during the winter months. We need only to open our eyes and capture a snapshot to see and feel and experience beauty. Rain, stormy clouds, sunshine, time and a drive along a familiar road is proof enough that Valentine's Day lasts longer than a single day. Enjoy it by taking time to stop and smell the roses it is so worth it.

Doors of Life in 2014


Happy new year! Now that the Holiday season has passed it's time to move on and map out a plan for 2014.

The doors in life can get a bit tricky and if you're not careful they'll contain lots of overwhelming surprises.

Get started on reflections, graces and  gratitude and focus on how to build some great relations.

~ Know thyself
~ Care about people
~ Maintain a positive outlook
~ Be open to learn and try new things
~ Take responsibility for solving others' problems that you did not create
~ Work unbelievably hard for what YOU believe in
~ Never stop trying to improve in all facets of life.

It's time to start adding to a list that moves you onto your next step. Getting unstuck can be just as challenging as taking a first...just keep moving towards long awaited goals...Confidence is the key.

What are your plans for 2014?
