Five Fact Friday

I seem to have a lots of thoughts and ideas swirling round my head at the minute.  Unformed and slightly chaotic thoughts and ideas, I might add.  But here's a list of five things that are inspiring me at the minute:

Photographically Speaking by David duChemin
This book, along with Kat's workshop, has really set me on the path of intent.

Spirits of Joy by Hannah Marcotti
Thanks to Hannah's ecourse I have found an alternative to struggling with art journaling - the vision journal.  So much more manageable and it makes so much more sense to my brain! Hannah's ecourse sends you a daily prompt as a jumping off point and I've found it really helpful in creating a picture of where I am today through pictures, quotes, a bit of writing, colours etc.  Slightly unformed and slightly chaotic still - see above - but as I create my vision journal it in turn generates so much more inspiration.....and slowly, slowly a bit of clarity.  Loving it.

The Witches by Roald Dahl
The Moo and I are reading this together (in preparation for Halloween).  I love Roald Dahl, his imagination and his fabulous use of language.  We are both hooked.

Love this blog with daily photos from three different women.  All telling a story so beautifully.  This was a major inspiration for my 52 intentional photos project.

The South Beach Diet
Sad but true.  It's really helping with the healthy eating I keep procrastinating about and which I am keen does not remain part of the slightly chaotic.

What about you, what's inspiring you at the minute?


  1. The urgency of an upcoming trip is inspiring me to Get Things Done! ohhh...South Beach Diet. Scary words! ;-)

  2. so fun to read your facts!
    we love roald dahl here too.
    and "unformed and slightly chaotic"...i can so identify with this ;)

  3. Thanks for the book tip. I'm always excited to check out new titles. My list is growing and growing...

  4. Sounds like the photo book and e-course have been a real inspiration. I love Roald Dahl but haven't read the Witches . . .

    Inspiration feels like it's been lacking in my parts recently but I'm hoping to find it soon.

    Have a great weekend.

  5. I'm going to have to look into some of your suggestions!

  6. Yes, "Photographically Speaking" was a major inspiration for me - as have been all of duChemin's books. Thanks for all your other links.

    My husband and I are trying a modified version of the Atkins Diet - which came from reading "Why We Get Fat" by Gary Taubes. Giving up sugar has been easier than I imagined but I'm still struggling with the concepts which go against EVERYTHING you think you know about nutrition and eating.

  7. I'm going to check out that photography book a.s.a.p. I'm not familiar with duChemin. Love Roald Dahl!

  8. I'm going to be looking up you book and course tip - I could really use some inspiration and direction. My mind is a bit chaotic these days, as well. Have a good weekend!

  9. my cat sleeping on my lap inspires me happiness :) I'm your new follower. xxo

  11. It's good to be inspired! lovely creative thing are inspiring you this week, thanks for sharing.

  12. My brain is like yours Becs...chaotic and all over the place...thank you for sharing your inspirations!

  13. I like the sound of a vision journal, think I could use one of them. I'm off to find out more!

  14. Hi Becs, thanks for these lovely inspirational links. Love the first photograph too.
    These days working with textures is inspiring for me. I am rediscovering them after a break and boy does it feel good!

  15. Thanks for these links, I'm going to jump right over and check some of them out! The leaves are beginning to turn and their colors and the cooler air are a great source of inspiration to me and, of course, all the beautiful fall images I've been seeing lately.
