Whimsical Inspiration

Please welcome, romance author, Alexandra Isobel to the blog as she shares how the buttons she found strewn on a writing table have added inspiration to her writing life.


I found these buttons on a writing table I frequent at my local college.



They inspired my writing for the day.



The next week I came across a container full of inspiration, so I decided to blindly choose two.



Hmmm. Interesting thoughts. These buttons talk to me. So, I know I keep them on my bullet board over my desk and look at them often, whenever I need to remember to. . . 


Trust my instincts, seek criticism and to find solutions as a way to create change.

More whimsy for creating an inspirational, colorful and positive workspace, from Alexandra Isobel’s own writing space.






















1. If your significant other is mad, put a cape on them and tell them they are now “super mad.” If they laugh, they’re a keeper.

2. To keep cake real moist, eat it all in one sitting.

3. Laughter and a nap will cure anything.

4. Master the art of self-deprecating humor–it leads to appreciating all humor.

5. Every time we make stupid people famous, a unicorn dies. Don’t do it.

6. For cheap entertainment, go to a shopping mall, stop, and stare at the ceiling, and check out how many other people will stop and stare.

7. Don’t throw away your old electric toothbrush head, it makes an amazing jewelry cleaner.

8. Revive limp celery by standing it up in an ice-cold glass of water. This ONLY works for celery. 😉

9.  Parents can always make their children behave in public, simply threaten to sing loudly.



We Should All Take A Lesson From Melissa McCarthy

Please join me in welcoming Maureen H. Cronin to the blog. Maureen has penned an inspiring, thought-provoking essay.


We Should All Take A Lesson From Melissa McCarthy by Maureen H. Cronin

For those of us who don’t exactly embrace our bodies, and frankly, I don’t know any women that do, I’d like to give a strong shout out to Melissa McCarthy.


She’s funny. She’s self-deprecating. She’s pretty. She has a dimple. She’s talented. She’s overweight. Which one do you think of first? If it’s overweight, you’re like 9 out of 10 women who judge themselves as harshly as they do others. You’re like me, and my sister, and my friends, who identify this extremely talented woman by her weight. Why? Because we define ourselves that way.
