simple joy


I love having little tokens from loved ones and friends to bring happiness to me everyday.  I love quotes, small pieces of art and pictures hanging to inspire and motivate me, but mostly to bring me joy!  I have many other pictures, cards, and notes from friends that help remind me why I do what I do and why I love it!  Do you ever have a hard day and look up and see something beautiful the keep you going?  I highly suggest everyone making an inspiration board to hang in your office :)

This beautiful picture by sidemtess linda makes me so happy especially knowing that one of her friends sent it to her :)  Just so you know, YOU ARE SPECIAL!  I hope you have a splendid day.  And for fun (or that I am crazy or super tired and delirious...) if you leave a comment here and then email me at aprilnewman @ gmail . com with your address I will send you a little something pretty (today only!)

xoxo

Fun shots! I enjoy my inspiration wall above one of my drawing tables. The Mona Lisa is one of my clippings :)

Mortal Muses is one of my daily treats, and this post is an example of why. So lovely...and I, too, think the inspiration board/wall idea is wonderful. Thank you.

I need to create an inspiration board and I have just the space for it. Thanks for the "inspiration". :) Love your photo booth shots and the sweet hearts in the second shot.

I think you're going to be busy my friend! Love this inspiration. I need to do a better job of really creating an inspiration board instead of trying to lock everything in my head!

I have an entire wall of family photos as you enter my home, and a beautiful tin mirror from my parents. Along with all the family photos (many that you took) are two paintings of both Thane and my childhood home where there were many fabulous memories that took place. These things always inspire and lift my spirits.
