Happy New Year! I hope you are amazing!
It’s been a long time since I've written. This last year of Leelee’s Garden was wild. I moved back to Chicago, created the indoor jungle apartment I've been dreaming of, hosted workshops, speaking gigs and did event floral design here, in California and on the East Coast.
Through it all, though, I missed sharing projects and ideas here with you!
In this time of fresh starts and new beginnings, I’m dropping you a little love note to say this year I'm getting back into writing this blog/mini e-mag. Here and there, about once every couple weeks, I'll send you free diys, tips (see a mini one below!), and inspiration for living a more botanical life with plants and flowers.
As I’ve been mapping out what else I'll focus on in 2019 in life and in business, I keep thinking about what I’ve learned from this community.
If you've been to one of my in-person workshops, you know I always ask groups why they come. My favorite answers have been when students share they show up because of a New Year goal or intention to be more creative. One woman said she chose a new Dabble workshop every month to learn a skill. Another wanted to make small additions to her life that would make it more beautiful, more sparkly.
I LOVE this idea of adding to the usual suspects of health or financial goals one goal that will light you up (and probably make those other ones easier too}. Maybe this year you want to…
Cook a new recipe once a week
Learn a fun, random skill each month
Keep flowers on your dining table or by your bed
Grow a green thumb
Write a page a day
Create an indoor jungle
Grow your own wedding flowers, or food or balcony garden
Get really good at salsa dancing
As we start this new year…
What’s your one just-for-fun goal for 2019?
I’d love to know what yours is in a comment here below.
Here’s to a beautiful 2019. I can’t wait to see what we grow and create!
P.S. Are you in Chicago? Looking for a little #indoorjungle inspiration for your green thumb goals? For the first time I’m opening my jungle home studio up for small group workshops! Come join me to make your own gemstone terrarium over the next week (or maybe a goals garden) and get a peek at my own wild world of plants. Click here to get all the details and register.
