Okay. It's the second week of 2010 already. How are you doing?
Me? Oh, I'm okay. Thank you for asking. Actually, I find winter insanely difficult to deal with for many reasons. So I'm always on the look out for inspiring blog posts & books to give me a nudge. Here's a few that I think you might enjoy, too. (And please, post your own suggestions below! I love to read them!)
The Crafty Chica herself wrote a most inspiring blog post:
How to Keep Calm & Carry On
You've all seen the signs...but how exactly does one do that? Thanks Crafty Chica!
The Etsy forums have been bursting with super useful posts lately.
The questions in this one: Taking Inventory of 2009 I found particularly helpful. Even though it's *ahem* 2010 now. Still, those questions are great for a fresh start.
The Good to Know zine is completely amazing. Past issues have been devoted to topics such as "What goals have you set for your business? How do you measure success?" and "How do you manage your time? What's your secret to tackling the mountains of work that never seem to end?" It's chock full of tips and perspective by creative folks, for creative folks. Lather. Rinse. Repeat.
And finally, Christine Kane's blog is full of inspiration and helpful articles on just about everything related to living a creative, conscious existence.
What are some of your favorite blogs and books? I'd love to hear about them.
