The Little Spark - And Insights on a Giveaway

An amazing new book has been released to provide inspiration and help light the spark of creativity.  "The Little Spark: 30 Ways to Ignite Your Creativity", by Carrie Bloomston is a book which SewCalGal highly recommends to creative souls and I'm delighted to share insights with you today, about this book, as well as how you can win a signed copy.

Book Description:
You were born with a creative spark inside. Do you look at yourself now and wonder if the spark has gone out? Ignite that inner fire with the 30 engaging exercises, fun activities, inspirational images, and motivating ideas in this book. Learn what your Little Spark of creative passion looks like, how to capture it, and how to make room for it in your life. Read the book cover-to-cover and use it as a month-long creative roadmap or just dip into the exercises as your time and inclination allow. Either way, you will change your life. 
 • Light your inner fire with 30 "sparks": exercises, activities, and lessons that help you discover and nurture your creative passions
• Live a more creative life, whether or not you consider yourself an artist
• Do one spark every day, week, or whenever the spirit moves you
• Find the gifts that come from doing what you really love - joy, connection, meaning, and contentment

My Review:
As SewCalGal, I frequently hear from very talented designers that they feel they have lost their creative spark.  I also hear from very creative people that lack the confidence to push their skills or to market their talents, for fear of failure.  As I truly want to encourage everyone to be creative, to be successful through their creative talents, I'm always looking for ways to inspire that creative spark and I'm truly thrilled to see this book.  The Little Spark is an excellent resource that I truly believe every designer should read this book.  Actually, it would be a great read for anyone in the business, as well as those that enjoy being creative and have toyed with the idea of turning their talents into a business.

The Little Spark is an inspirational read for creative souls, packed full of easy to follow steps to help you ignite your inner spark.  It doesn't matter what your artistic preference might be, the insights shared in this book are appropriate to creative souls who want to live a creative life in a positive and energetic manner. 

This book is very reasonably priced and available in ebook and soft cover from C&T Publishing.  You can also find it on Amazon.com, as well as many quilt shops. This book would also make a great gift for your friends with creative souls.
