Celebrating Books!

February 12, 2012  |  Color Me Inspired, Inspiration, Personal

I’ve got a special treat this week!

This month I launched a personal project called Val&Words here! A little intro to the site:

I have a big love for words. In high school I wrote poems and songs on my guitar daily. I dreamed of being Poet Laureate or a songwriter. In college, my life revolved around the college newspaper. Post grad, I worked for my local paper designing pages until the wee hours of the day. My passion for words has crept up again, this time in the form of a fun and inspiring hobby. This site consists of three parts:

BOOK NOTES – I LOVE to read books that can change my life. I strive to be the best Valerie I can be and I have found so much wisdom in the books I’ve read lately. The hard part is making it stick. My book notes are all things I’ve highlighted straight from the goodness of each book! I’ve found myself reading over the notes simply to edit and make sure there were not any major errors. The truth is, I found myself deciding I wanted to reread these notes weekly until they were ingrained in me. My hope is that you will find these notes beneficial as well! : ) Find thosehere.

BLOG POSTS – Columns were one of my favorite aspects of working at a paper. Here’s my outlet to share things I’ve learned. This life is a journey and I look forward to sharing it with you!

PRINTS – As a designer, I couldn’t help but design something that will continue to inspire long after you’ve read the book notes. Here, you will find my favorite quotes from each book designed for you to purchase. Full proceeds will go to a few of my favorite charities. Prints and charity specifics COMING SOON! : )

Each month or so I plan to post four more reviews. I’ve got them divided into categories, everything from business to creative and health and spirituality, finance and marriage.

I’m excited to start this personal project. We are capable of so much!! We simply need to learn it! I truly hope these notes will help you grow to be your best self. Unused energy is a waste. I don’t want to look back on my life and think I could have been more. May you be inspired! : )

To celebrate, I decided to do inspiration boards every day all inspired by book covers! Check back later today for our first inspiration board!!
