Purple Bird Studio

Did you ever get ideas so fast you can't write them down fast enough?  Did you ever get so excited you thought might explode?  Well.  What fun!  Synchronicity, wavelength theory, serendipity do dah!  I thought I might be losing it lately, when everything thing I say is a line from a song.  I reply to people by singing songs!  This morning I woke at 3 a.m. wide awake, again.  But far from being grumbly about it, I literally leapt from the bed!  I heard my son grumbling the question, "Is it time to get up?" (He hates to miss the bus!)  "Nope, just God talking to me, so I'm getting up and taking notes!"  I had 3 different kinds of chicken cooking by 5:15!  I had taken 6 pages of notes and had to just put down the pen and paper!  If you have never had this happen, I'd like to recommend a step to take to get here!

Start out by making a gratitude journal.  Every day write down 10 things you are grateful for and why.  Share it with a friend.  It didn't take but a day or two before I was literally buzzing.  I realized that I grumble from sun up to sun down about the one thing I think I need in order to be happy that day... the one thing I don't have!  So I'm always focused on the lack in my life.  I love the quote that says blessed is the one who has, for that one will be given even more, the converse is true too, the one who has not loses the enjoyment of what that one has.  So, for today, for right now, think about what you have to be grateful for, and keep thinking on that... but only if you want to buzz, and be awakened full of life at 3 am! 

And, what does all that have to do with "Purple Bird Studio?"  My son, who takes after me (did you know there is a gene for creativity?), and loves to create company names, logos, slogans, I know... shoulda been in advertising, (NOT), came up with PB a few years ago.  Now he has his own youtube channels under another name, complete with linking facebook pages (and he's helping me do the same thing here!)... the younger generation doesn't need a class in media marketing, they are writing the book!  So, I decided, without his permission (yet) to use the first one he created as "our" production company!  And the videos are just a few of those ideas that came to me this morning.  More on this later, go get your own ideas!

Wishing you a very creative day!
