Creating Ulterior Motive Memories

My husband, daughter, and I just moved into our house, so recently I’ve been looking for inspiration to guide our home design. I pine over the perfectly designed rooms in home magazines. I endlessly scroll through Pinterest and Houzz searches, and sometimes I am still left a little inspiration-less. What I always have to remember is that the best kind of inspiration comes from myself and my memories. I will always have the memory of Grace spilling milk all over my new Elle D├ęcor while she giggled and proceeded to tear up the soggy pages. This gives me inspiration to welcome the unexpected (and not cry over spilt milk). We then went out window-shopping, and Grace insisted on wearing one of my chunky bib-style necklaces.  She’s following in her Grandma Barb’s accessory footsteps already! When I remember these things, it makes me feel something.  THIS is something to be inspired by.

Making memories while you’re creating [fill in the blank] seems to make the process and the outcome that much more meaningful. That is exactly what I’ve seen happen through Vivi Magoo Presents... retreats. The opportunity for VMP friends to come together and connect while being inspired by each other, the instructors and the venue offers a deep experience. The bonds forged on the journey to creating a piece of art are sure be the thing that inspires you and makes your masterpiece increase in value ten fold. Hope you’ll be joining us in the fall to be inspired, make memories, and create beautiful jewelry and art.
