I’m going rogue with today’s AEDM post. You can see my #4 in the image above. Embrace. What am I embracing? Well, this week, I’m trying to embrace everything. Embrace processes. Creativity. Community. Communications. Life’s busyness. If I try to fight it, it will be one of those crazy lady weeks, and none of us want to see what that looks like right?

So for my #5 entry, I present the following…


This is my general work area when I’m not at the computer. It’s quite a spread, no? I’m embracing messes.


I’m embracing gentle reminders that tend to come to mind at just the right moments, when I feel like the busyness of responsibility just might swallow me whole.


I am embracing sticky notes. (I’m a bit of a sticky-note junkie.)
(Dear Santa, I’m running low on sticky notes.)


I’m embracing the creative process. That which to everyone else just looks like a pile of books and journals and notes and scribbles and sketches. But for me, it’s just part of breathing. Breathing in wisps of inspiration, and breathing out, well, messes.

What do your processes look like?
