{creative space}


This is the space where I write and create most posts for the blog. Right above the computer screen is my real life mood/pin board, which is full of sketches, magazine tear sheets, ideas, words of advice, and inspiring quotes. Speaking of which, this space is where I will most likely work on my quote for Project Postal, or I'll venture to our big dining room table so I have ample room to spread out and create.

We had a really great turn out for Project Postal. A big thank you to all those who signed up! (Joy and I really appreciate your shared love of mail.) In case you might be wondering who all is involved, please step right this way and find all the participants (plus their respective sites, if applicable):
 
Christie Jones of Bedsidesign | Sarah Wimer | Amber Carlson of A Thoughtful Blog | Trude Ellingsen of Ellingsen Photography | Giova Brusa | Tasmin Holland of Hey Holland | Meredith Nguyen of Not Merely Living | Andrea Victoria of Life by Andrea Victoria | Erica deMasi | Clare Wilkinson | Lindsey Holcomb | Ashley Weeks of Blog a la Cart | Mina Brinkey of Bohemian Vintage | Mary Louise Edu of Laid Off Mom | Stephanie Rufener of Pretty and Delectable | Becca Coursey-Rugh of Pomegranate and Seeds | Lauren Keim of Still + Life | Christine Dinsmore of The Plumed Nest | Nina Clasen of Living in 40 | Erin Wurzel of Like/Want/Need | Jen Ahn | Jennifer Cops of A Well Nurtured Life | Leah Deighton of Sang the Bird | Mills of Heron + Hibou | Raluca State of What Would Gwyneth Do | Ruth Yen of A Miusmie | Paige Ray of Approaching Joy | Santa Martin of Homestilo | Linda Khoe of The Urban Mrs.

Oh, and some have wondered if there is a deadline for mailing out the quotes. We didn't designate a deadline. Though, if you send your special quote out within the next week, that feels about right.

So, have you already thought about what you'll create and picked a beautiful quote? I'm curious, do you have a favorite resource for quotes?

Let the creative fun begin!

  1. I love seeing your creative space, Theresa. Mine needs work. Mostly I work at our shared desktop in our family room, which is fine, but we don't pay attention to making it a nice space. We should. It wouldn't be too hard. Perhaps you've inspired me. ;) I *am* thinking about my quote. Among other things. Such a fun project. Good work, ladies!

  2. Hi Theresa, Love your concept! Just wondering if I can be added on the list. I signed up via Joy's blog, not sure if it got caught (or not). Can't wait to be part of it!

  5. Your workspace is so lovely! T, I have to say that I am nervous that what I create won't be good enough. It sounds silly when I write it... well as Theodore Roosevelt said "Comparison is the theif of joy".

  6. Oh  I am so late to this party (and I apologize for that)! But hope to participate all the same. Theresa your work area is so (clean and) inspirational, and it looks like you also have a  view .

  7. I love your desk space and I am so, so excited about this project!! Now that I'm home and getting my life back in order, I'm going to focus on this project this weekend. You're so incredible for organizing it. Thank you!! xoxo

  8. Theresa! Thank you for making this list of all our participants. You're wonderful. Also, we really are kindred spirits: I'm about halfway through creating a huge bulletin board, which I keep calling, "Pinterest in Real Life." :) Your work space is beautiful! I like knowing what it looks like when you're typing up all these wonderful posts. xo

  9. You've got a lovely view! And thanks for linking me up! I put my package in the mail today, I'm so excited. :) I actually look to Goodreads.com a lot if I want to verify the exact wording of a quote, they've got a great quotations section. But for the most part I just write things down wherever I see them, I actually have a skinny quote journal with me all the time (my grandmother did the same thing and I got my inspiration from her).

  11. I would like to humbly apologize in advance to my recipient...words, I can do. Creativity and talent in how I present those words may be lacking just a touch ;)

  12. I had this same fear too, Leah, but it helps me to remember that there is no such thing as "not good enough" snail mail. :) There is just nothing like it--such a treat!

  13. I am just now getting over here to see the other half of Project Postal, and I wanted to say I love that you rounded up everyone's names and corresponding sites. Wish mine wasn't a ghost town at the moment, but oh well. I love your blog and the concept behind it!


    I keep quotes/snippets of poetry/song lyrics/inspiring words/etc. in whatever Moleskine I am writing in at the moment . . . which is not a very organized system. I need a better one. Have loved seeing everyone's quotes and sneak peaks on Instagram!

  15. Apologies for being away T. Life got in the way ;-)

    For this reason I'm sorry to have missed Project Postal, perhaps there will be a next time? If so, I'm in! Hopefully there will be lots of posts from those who have taken part.

    Plus, I love your Space, it's exactly how I expected it to be xx
