I can't believe it is already Wednesday again! I love what inspires you Wednesday because I get to share what inspires me and sometimes you get to hear from others about what inspires them!

This week I am totally, wholeheartedly inspired by my author visits that are happening in elementary schools.

I have been able to share my message about dreaming big and huge and have had children begging to take a picture with me (G and E think that is hilarious), students bringing me THEIR stories to read, and asking me for feedback on their work.

You guys, this week has given me hope! Hope that there are so many creative young minds across the world that want to do great things. They have been asking the most fantastic questions like:

How many languages is your book published in right now? How long did the process of writing take? Why didn't you illustrate your own book? Do you like cupcakes? What other stories have you written? Are you famous? And my favorite... Will you be my new friend? Seriously, I wanted to jump up and grab this little kid and say, "Of course I will  be your new friend, buddy!" 

These author visits are truly filling my bucket, but I am not doing it for me or to sell books. Seeing the looks on the faces of the kids when they see that it is possible to dream big and huge and become anything you want to be in this world is all of the payment I need!

What inspires you? Would you like to be a guest writer on WIYW?

Wreck this what?

Looking for a gift for that creative child, young adult or adult in your life?  Check out Wreck This Journal.

One of the many pages that the girls have created.

My daughter LOVES her Wreck This Journal, so much she has more than one.  She has been working in the same journal for over two years and continues to work in it, add new things, and change the cover of it often.  Seriously, every time I see it laying around it has a different look on the cover!

Here are several reasons you should order one today:

  1. It provides cheap entertainment for kids, literally, they run around the house looking for scraps, fruit stickers, used stamps, and gum to put in the journal.
  2. It keeps kids busy for minutes, half-hours, hours and days at a time.  Who doesn’t need an activity like that when it is 3* Farenheit?
  3. It sparks creativity in all ages!  I have watched my girls create things with their imaginations and sometimes wonder how they even thought of the things they wrote in their journal.
  4. It’s inexpensive for the amount of fun that is to be had with the book.

The girls and I would love to hear how you or the recipient of a Wreck This Journal liked the gift, comment below and tell us all about it.
