Inspiration  Primo Podcasts for Makers & Creative Entrepreneurs

Hello!  Today I am excited to share with you my favorites podcasts!  Some are for entrepreneurs, some for creatives, and some just for fun!  No matter how frustrating my day might be, when I listen to these awesome podcasts I feel productive and uplifted.

 

My two favorite shows that provide me insight and inspiration every week are After the Jump, by Grace Bonney, the amazing DIY Design Blogger, and The Lively Show, by Jess Lively, and creator of Living Life With Intention Online.  But there are so many….

LIVING HAPPY

 

The Lively Show by Jess Lively.  This year I discovered Jess LIvely and her wonderful interviews with (mostly) women who talk about the pursuit of joy and fulfillment in life, work, love, and family.  Jess talks about vulnerable topics that so many women deal with, related to self image, productivity, morale and finding lifetime happiness.

 

I recently also took Jess Lively’s fantastic course, Life With Intention, which is an online course that helps to identify what our values are, and build a life that is intentional and value-driven, for joy, balance and fulfillment.  It is a great course, and you can repeat as many times as you like!

 

The Art of Simple by Tsh Oxenreider.   A great podcast of conversations about “everything else”, including food, travel, family, working at home, music and living simply.  I really like this when I am taking a break from thinking so hard!  (more…)  

Inspiration  Wonderful Wallpaper & My Search for Stairwell Revival

This summer I am making a few small changes to my house that I hope will have a big impact.  It has been 9 years since we bought our old Victorian house (circa 1905) and we have not done much besides maintenance since our initial rehab.  Things are looking a little tired, and I am looking for a refresh!  In my search for wallpaper for our front hall staircase, I fell in love with some amazing designers!

 

The first thing I did was summon my wallpaper collection on Pinterest.  Here are some of my favorite wallpaper designers who are doing interesting and very unique work.  I really love designs that show the artist’s hand and feel like a work of art—the way art deco designs and Indian block printing allow you to feel the direct nature of the making.
