Random Inspiration To Get You Through The Day

All things that are inspiring me at the moment. I couldn’t decide what to include but this is a random cluster of my inspirational fuel for the past little while. There is a lot more where this came from….but I hate long blogs ;)

I tend to draw a lot of my creative fuel from books, but I also love quotations and beautiful design. Also, who doesn’t love a good Stephen Sondheim quote or song. The Weepies will never let you down, Bernadette Peters will get anyone through anything…..And Chelsea Handler is just the most honest hilarious woman in the world. Period.

Enjoy and use as needed :)

Tunes For A Rainy Afternoon

UPDATE!

I posted this last year on my Tumblr blog, but since I am still obsessed with this playlist, and since I just discovered 8tracks, I figured I would repost it, share it with my new wordpress followers, and this time include the actual playlist! This playlist has never let me down. It’s a keeper.

———————————————————————————————–

I created this playlist recently as a going away present for a group of friends. These songs have been a huge part of the last few months for me and I wanted to share them with the people I love. I can’t take credit for finding them….they are all songs that were used at some point or another (except for the Jason Robert Brown one which I just happen to love) in the wonderful CW show “Life Unexpected”. Seriously, go to itunes, download them, make a playlist and let them work their magic.

Weepies Know How It Is

I can’t get enough of The Weepies lately. It’s a problem……but it’s better than most! I recommend their music to EVERYONE! This quote is from the song “Can’t Go Back Now”.

BEAUTIFUL

This is beautiful….and the song is And The World Spins Madly On by The Weepies. Bliss.

Today Martha Graham would have been 117 years old. Both this video and the Google graphic today are in her honour.

The Weepies – All This Beauty

I recently discovered The Weepies. They are perfection. Every song holds a beautiful message and they know exactly how they want you to feel. When I am at a loss for words The Weepies usually have a song I can use to help articulate.

This song is called All This Beauty and it can be found on their Hideaway album.
