A Woman's Word: The I HEART Inspiration Project.

As you know, I've kept a journal since I was 9 years old. The notebooks contained mostly words (I am a words-smith, after all) and the occasional photo of George Clooney I'd printed off the Internet and carefully taped into the hallowed pages.

But recently, I've heard so much talk about keeping an inspiration journal - a beautiful notebook filled with your favorite photos and quotes that you can turn to any time you need a shot of the inspiration juices. Have you visited Micaela of The Drifter and the Gypsy lately? It turns out she's embarking on a similar project known as the I HEART project. Check out my interview with this fabulously inspiring lady and take part in the project. Let the inspiring begin!
How did the project come about?
After I posted about inspiration books, I was surprised by the overwhelming interest, and that got me thinking maybe I should do something with inspiration notebooks on a larger scale, and it sort of snowballed from there.

What is the purpose?
The purpose of this project is to bring the blogging community together. We "talk" all the time on the Internet, whether it be commenting on each other's blogs, twitter, emailing, etc. So why not start something hands-on? What can be more fun than participating in something worldwide, and in the end, compile it all together?

What inspires you?
SO MUCH inspires me. Photography, nature, vintage things, old movies, books, and of course, all your lovely blogs.

What can people do to bring more inspiration into their lives?
There are various ways...I let inspiration into my life when I started my blog, The Drifter and the Gypsy. Also, I've recently picked up photography (you can see one of my photos here). People have to stop and be able find the beauty of even the most mundane things in the world.
Thanks so much for the feature, Melissa! Don't forget to join my I HEART project, and add the inspiration from your corner of the world!

  1. What a great idea!!!! Oh I must go check this out. =)

  2. I just started doing this by collaging poems that inspired me. I'd print them, paste them, and then start clipping magazines to find things that fit. It's nice.

  3. A very nice project!

  4. Inspiring interview. Even digital journaling is great!
