This Moment: The Idea Box

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words a few words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor, and remember. ~ Amanda

If you're inspired to do the same, come share your moment with me in the comment section!

The Idea Box

My lovely friend Heather gave me the suggestion of having an Idea Box, a place to keep all the story, poem, novel, project, art, future, creative, musical, interactive, family, game, dream, and crazy ideas that my mind comes up with all the time. Rather than feeling pressured or worried that I'll forget an awesome idea that maybe I just don't have time for right now, I can jot it down on a notecard, date it, and keep it safe until I need it again! So I am re-purposing this cigar box that my husband brought home after it was going to be thrown away at his workplace (we do NOT condone smoking, but I admitted that the box was pretty cool) and keeping it in a corner of my desk for all those little lightbulb ideas that occasionally flash into my head : )  The first card went in today. Here's to many more in the moments and years to come!

I love this idea! I think I must need an idea box, too.

I had a mom moment this week. My youngest daughter and three of her friends came home from college. We had a great time on the ice.

I really like this idea - so many times my creative whims disappear...I'll have to write this down...and find a box! :D

Have a wonderful weekend!

Here's our moment:

Great idea. Looks like an idea for a book? Do you write in that way too? Or is it something you hope to do?

Great idea Lyssa :)
Really glad to see somebody else dreams elaborate stories too. My husband often doesn't believe the things that fill my dreams !!

This is great! And the best part is when you let some time pass and go back & read your ideas. It brings back all sorts of memories & emotions. I used to use colored index cards in a card catalog box. I actually still have it... somewhere... hmmm, I think I'll go look for it!

I think the whole lot of us savored this moment. Well, this day, really...
