This giveaway is now closed! Thank you for all your comments! One lucky winner will be announced February 15, 2011.
I’ve been reading my Simple Abundance. It’s a book that I read every year, on and off. I truly love this book and I truly believe that it can change your life and I also believe that it is one of the most misunderstood books out there. The reason I know this is because I find this book at my local thrift every time I go (which is usually weekly). I usually buy them too because I like giving them to friends. The books haven’t even been cracked and I seriously mean cracked, because I can tell that I’m the first one to crack the spine open to see if it’s been used. Strangely, I almost find this sad.
This book was given to me by my mother in a time when depression was racking my life. She seriously urged me to read it, which I did and found that I was going about life all the wrong way. It was a serious eye opener for me. One I’ve never forgotten. This book takes you on a lovely journey through the wilderness of your soul and gives you ideas and activities of how to find those things that really speak to you and give you pleasure. One of the activities is to do a discovery journal – which is a collection of images and things that you find attractive.
It’s in that spirit that I’m presenting my inspiration journal. It’s something I’ve thought about for awhile since I’ve seen some rather lovely inspiration blogs on tumblr and such. Mine is connected to this, my personal blog, which I’ve found is easiest for me. It’s just collections of images, music and videos that I find appealing with little tidbits of my particular dialect. I was so impressed with myself for finally putting it together that I wanted to walk you through it. It’s called “Inspirations of a Redheaded Lady” and you’ll find the images to the posts on the right and the actual posts themselves on the left. Only one post shows at a time, so as not to overwhelm, but you can click on any image to the right and it will take you to the post that the image is in. You can click on the Categories/Archives which will take you the categories page and I thought it was rather clever to include that you can subscribe if you like, to specific categories. I’m inspired by many different things, which hopefully will inspire you too, but you might just want to be inspired by fashion or shoes or sewing. I hope to include music and videos and such too.
I have to say, it’s mostly something for me. But its fun to share inspirations with you too. Tis always better to give because you receive so much more back in return. Ha. ♥ Giveaway Alert ♥ To top it all off, I’m giving away one of my Simple Abundance thrifted books. It’s just like new.
