“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”

Inspiration Rx : This series is a remedy for blank walls, sparse reading lists, & creative ruts.

This week’s prompt: After

These pretty pink balloons are such light-hearted party remnants, they seem to be calling us to observe & appreciate that often overlooked moment just after you’ve kicked off your party shoes & said goodnight to the last of the lingering guests, but before you’ve rolled up your sleeves to tidy up the food table & wedge too many cake plates into the dishwasher. What could we find if we paused to look for something beautiful in that slim space in-between where one activity ends & another begins?

This week, we’d like you to choose an event, task, or obligation that’s already on your calendar & create something inspired by the moment after. It could be as momentous as a wedding, or as mundane as a household chore. Maybe you will find yourself feeling melancholy, wistful, relieved, or even anxious about the next thing on your to do list, remember – those experiences can be just as beautiful as pale pink party balloons.

Last week’s gesture prompt was certainly challenging, but Torrie’s lettering made us all smile, & Karm knocked it out of the park with a her post on body & mind. If you didn’t make the deadline for this week – keep in mind, you are welcome to catch up on previous prompts!

Piqued your interest?

I don’t know about you, but this image makes me want to celebrate something! There’s a lot of buzz around town about the new Trophy Cupcakes & Parties book, maybe we should throw in something savory for Miss B, & of course, we’ll need pink balloons!
