Worktable Wednesday- My Purpose, My World.

Worktable Wednesday features something new happening with the BBA members or something of interest we spy online.  I know Edi just wrote about Erika of Artful Rising a few weeks ago, but this girl has so many new things on the table that she needs another post!  Last week Edi focused on Erika's inspirational journals in her etsy shop Artful Rising.  

Since then, Erika has launched a new project, My Purpose, My world.  This blog serves as so many things: it is a forum for women to come together to discuss "their hopes, dreams, & fears in a safe place."  It is an outlet for Erika to use her experiences to encourage readers to live their dreams and change their world.  Additionally, Erika offers workshops wherein participants can use art journaling & thinking/ writing prompts to discover their purpose and challenge their current notions. 

Her mantra proclaims, "When you were a little girl you had big dreams.  Start living them today."

Provoked to start this project by a small mistake leading to the loss of her former blog & project Artful Rising, Erika chose to keep her head held high and dig deeply within herself to uncover her own true desires and reinvent her brand.  Erika is a truly motivational person living her life to the fullest which is why she has so much to teach others. 

I encourage you to visit My Purpose, My World, and see if you can't find something that begs you to open your ears & your heart!

Today's post was written by Nancy of N. Fallon Design Studio.  Established in 2008, the shop houses a whimsical line of knit purses, wallets, and knitwear.  An artist at heart, Nancy also dabbles in watercolors, mixed media sculpture, and poetry.  You can read more about her life and work on her blog One Loopy Knitter.
