christmas is 50 days away!

EMILY’S BITES OF FUN:

Just one word: The reality of living a creative life is that some days the well runs dry.  The good news is that sometimes it only takes a single word or phrase to jump-start the process again.

You can also play with words, change the spelling to something fun like girlfriends to gyrlfriends and other play on words. 

During this season there are a lot of great words to play with and use for inspiration: Joy, Reflect, Create, Just Breathe, Believe, Let Your Light Shine, Beauty, Peace, Thanks, Grateful,  and many more.  Take time to write what you see, what you are thinking about, look through a dictionary and use those words that come to mind that may bring a spark of magic into someone else’s life today.  Then, make a card, a wall hanging, a magnet, or something else to reflect that/those words.
