Welcome to The MindFULL Creative!
The idea for this blog came from noticing how my mind is so FULL of inspirational stories and creative ideas (tips, insights, personal musings and awesome folks doing wonderful work, etc.). I love to share what I learn and I sought to create a place for folks to share, as well. We have to share. The news is unsettling. However, finding new ways of living can become a creative challenge.
For example, last Winter I heard Jean Chatsky speak and she helped me re-frame my spending habits. Jean said, “It’s not about feeling deprived, it’s about re-framing how you are saving — save ‘towards‘ what you want.” Now, I pass on buying another pair of black shoes and think of how I am saving towards a beach house.
It’s a way of navigating a new world and a new way of thinking.
I’m hoping The MindFULL Creative will become a space where we can share what we discover along the way. Perhaps you have a recipe that everyone asks you to bring when you’re on deck for dessert. Maybe you read a book, found a website or heard a song that shifted the way you saw things – or simply loved. Maybe some of you have ideas on how we can shop our own closets and recycle what we have into new and creative uses (stay tuned for a future entry on my jewelry swapping party!). My hope is that, together, we’ll find new ways of understanding who we are and have fun finding out what’s going on — and that we will be the better for having been here.
Please send me what you’ve learned. Share your tips and insights. Pass on stories and websites of folks doing something that makes you smile.

Together we can circumvent the bad news, and focus on filling our minds with information, tips and ideas that make us the better for being and at the same time, becoming mind-FULLy creative!
