I love tulips — in the apocalyptic DC snows of 2010.
I love flowers — anytime.
And I especially love FLOWER HUNTING.

Your 'Life Soundtrack'

A - C R E A T I V E - S P A R K
"If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got." Those words are from an Aerosmith song, that I've referenced before (and I'm sure this won't be the last time).

Does your life get in a rut? Does it feel frustrating, in constant crisis, mundane, stressful, too routine, stuck, or overwhelming? Maybe it is just not what you want? Or where you want to be? Well, a friend of mine finds life to be in a bit of a rut right now, so I randomly blurted out this idea... try changing the soundtrack of your life. Literally.

Imagine your life as you want it to be. What would that sound like?

I sent my friend a simple iTunes gift certificate for $10 to help jump start this idea of a new 'Life Soundtrack.' Search around. Try something out of your comfort zone. Grab songs that perk up your ears. That move you. That inspire you. That kick your butt. Or calm you. Whatever you need. But try to bypass the tunes you're used to or that you're comfortable with. If you want to switch tracks. If you want to get to a new place with your life, try grabbing some new stuff. Ear candy.

Dream big. Listen to your life. Your life's needs. Then feed it.

How does that sound?

Heart. Head.

If I create from the heart,
nearly everything works;
if
from the head, almost nothing.

Saturday morning, the way Copper sees it.
WASHINGTON DC — No sooner did this get shoveled (nearly 30"), the Blizzard of 2010 hit (adding another 20" of snow). Spring? Are you out there?

My February experiment

A - C R E A T I V E - S P A R K
"Challenge yourself. Be curious. Discover. Grow."
—WENDYHUDGINS.com

I love my work as a DC area freelance Art Director. But one of the challenges I'm faced with as a creative running my own business, is that there's a lot more to it than just the creative...

So for the month of February I'm reserving Wednesdays to focus on the non-creative aspects that are equally important to doing what I do. Research. Accounting. Billing. Training. Education. Sketching. Networking. Securing new business. Getting inspired. Organization. Still working, but simply not scheduling any calls or meetings.

When our weeks look like this: - give, give, give, give, give.
I'd like to propose:
- give, give, replenish, give, give.

Whatever you do, wherever you are, don't forget to refill the source of your creativity. You need to refill that well in order to continue to pull from it.
