For most of my life, I can always remember my love for writing and have always tried to live by every inspirational/motivational quote I’ve ever heard! Sometimes I get spurts of creativity and decide to put my writing hand
to other good uses such as drawing or crafts.
Well lately I’ve been pretty un-motivated, myself being jobless since September, now in debt and slowly seem to be running out of everything in my life, not to mention the coma’s I continuously fall into rather than sleeping.
I decided enough was enough and hopefully this works as well as I plan it to, although it is mind over matter so, it will work if I want it to! right?
It’s 1 o’clock in the morning right now, but really when you’re inspired there is no better time!
OK, so your going to need:
- 4 pieces of scrap booking paper -or- a piece of poster board
- Gel pens, markers (anything you’d like to decorate with)
- Construction paper
- Glue stick and/or Tape
- Mod-Podge (optional)
- Anything extra (funny/motivational pictures etc.)
Tip: If you don’t have time to write every quote or have messy writing, you can always type it out on the computer and then print it off and glue each quote to a piece of construction paper!
*I’m using 2 black and 2 white pieces of scrap booking paper. I placed them in a square on my wall so that the same colour squares are diagonal from each other.
*Write (or type) all of the quotes you would like to use onto the construction paper and cut them out separately, arrange them so they all fit and glue/tape your heart out!
*I’m using the black construction paper for my quotes, and the white construction paper where I put my pictures.
*I’m also adding a little extra to help myself keep a better sleep pattern, I’m adding a to do before bed list in the white squares. You are welcome to do the same, or put another list of daily chores or activities you may need to remind yourself to do!
This is what my list looks like:
- NO food or caffeine 3 hours before bed.
- Wash face & brush teeth.
- Have a short bath with a single glass of wine, relaxing music and candles.
- Read for 20-30 min. (so you can dry off)
- Turn on relaxing sounds/sleep cd.
- Set alarm clock
I may also add a morning list as well because routine really does help one get things done and keep’s you positive and sane! I’ll post it up here if I change my mind.
*The Mod-Podge is like a glue/sealant, you can mix it with glitter and cover your squares with it, it holds it together better, adds shimmer and looks neater!
When I’m finished I’ll upload a picture onto this blog!
