Today we’ve got a new feature here at PatternedApp HQ, and we’re excited to share it with you! Every Friday, we’ll be posting a prompt to help you think outside the box, flex your creative muscles and work on your business goals. Sometimes the prompt will be a creative journal entry, sometimes it will be a call to create something new with your artistic and crafty talents, and sometimes it will be an opportunity to think about an area of your business life and reflect on that.

We’ll be calling these posts Think, Create, Reflect – and we’ll be tagging our own responses to the prompts using #ThinkCreateReflect.

In order to get ready for the first prompt on Friday, here are some things you can do:

– Decide how you’re going to answer the creative prompts. You might want to buy a notebook or journal just for the occasion, so you can keep your answers largely to yourself and then look back through them whenever you want to feel inspired. You might prefer to share your answers with the public, so you could post them on your blog, web site, or even Facebook page. If the prompt is creative in nature, take a photo of your creation so you can share it with the social media outlet of your choice.

– When you answer the prompt, if you do share it publicly, use the hashtag #ThinkCreateReflect and tweet or post your links on Instagram so we can all share them together! You’re also welcome to leave a comment on the blog here and direct us to the site where you’ve posted your response. We’d love to read them!

We hope you’ll join us for a little Friday coffee or tea break with a moment to Think, Create, and Reflect!

Nail Art as Crafty Inspiration

If you’re on Pinterest, you must have noticed the nail art trend.

Personally, I lovingly observe this trend, I ‘oh’ and ‘ah’, but when it comes to my nails … I just paint each one one color. Sometimes there’s multiple colors per hand, but that’s about as far as I go. It’s not, because I wouldn’t want amazing, artful nails … it’s more that I am not capable of creating them. Nevertheless, there are some amazing nails out there.

Let’s use them as inspiration for our next project (or manicure!)
