Awhile ago, I stumbled across Jessica Brogan and her amazing Inspiration Deck swap. In a nutshell – each participant takes a bunch of playing cards (52 in the swap I joined) and alters them in some way, adds an inspiring quote and then bundles them off to Jess to have them all swapped out. We each then received a full deck of beautifully decorated cards back. I still have my deck, and it hangs on my desk, full of happy little reminders, little boosts of inspiration. Generally I flip to a new card each week, but sometimes hang onto one for a little longer if the message is something I need a little more of.
I decided I wanted share the cards here each week too, because really, there’s no such thing as too much inspiration, right? Some days, it’s just a message, other days I see it a prompt for creative play. Either way, it’s a little dose of happy and that’s something we all need. Most of the cards have been labelled by the creator, usually with a blog address, so I’ll be sure to link you to each as we go through.
What inspires and motivates you? Have you created something similar, or have you joined a swap like this? I’d love to hear your stories!
