Joy's world

Keri Smith

Do we all know
Keri Smith?
Every now and then
I look at her


Her first three ideas:
1. Go for a walk. Draw or list things you find on the sidewalk.
2. Write a letter to yourself in the future.
3. Buy something inexpensive as a symbol for your need to create (new pen, a tea cup, journal). Use it everyday.

Visit her 100 ideas list, here.
I'm so so curious what idea you like best ....

She wrote some funny books too.

Have a most wonderful Easter Monday!

    How fun Saskia!I visted her blog, I think anything to do with art would be a great idea.Or the one about the poem.

    Happy Easter monday!

  2. So fun to read all of her ideas.
    I could use many of them.
    Have a happy Easter monday.


  3. You allready mentioned one of the ideas I think is great. The one that says, "write a letter to yourself in the future". Hehe, that could be a good thing, just to see what I was thinking of at that time... =).
    Now I´m going to visit her page , see if I can find other great ideas!

    Have a nice day!

  4. Hoi Saskia, er zitten leuke ideetjes tussen, ben er nog niet helemaal over uit welke ik zou kiezen, want ik ben toch nog erg nieuwsgierig naar de laatste paar, ze staan er nl. niet alle 100 op hihi.
    Fijne Paasmaandag.
    Lieve groet, Mea

    Leuk, leuk, leuk! Ik kende 'm al; heb 'm nu ook op A4, dankzij de Flow! Een poosje terug blogde ik over een van de ideetjes: breng alle huizen waar je hebt gewoond in kaart. Bracht goede herinneringen naar boven!

  21. Hi Saskia, such a fun list. My favorite is #17...go to paint store and collect chips of your favorite colors. I just love collecting paint chips and usually have at least a dozen in my purse at any given time! Hope your Easter was lovely! Deb

  22. Hi Saskia,thanks for the nice comment on my blog,how sweet of you :)
    And now I´ve been reading all those ideas,mostly good but some...weird??? Hanging upside down ? Use 15 minutes on an orange? - Why not both at the same time *lol*
    No seriously...there are sooo many things we should carry in our mind everyday,that will make us appreciate ourselves and our life and surroundings even more...lots of good ideas!
    I hope you had a nice easter:)))

  28. Hi honey..... I loved your visit to my blog. Your blog is very cute.

    Big kiss!!

  29. Greetings Sweet Saskia...I too love creative people...I need to wrap myself with a blanket of "inspiration"...This why I so enjoy your site... "It's quite cozy"...still smiling...Rosie

  30. I love lists!! The idea that intrigued me most was def the 29: study the face of someone you do not like! Never thought of that.. but I'll do it, today!
    Hugs from me

  31. Looking forward to having a look at the list, what a great idea we all need some fun in our lives. wishing you a lovely day.

  32. Hoi Saskia,
    Wat een wonderlijke lijst. Het zette mij in ieder geval aan het denken: Read a book in one day... ik schaam me haast om het te zeggen, maar dat doe ik regelmateig. Ik kan n.l. niet stoppen als ik aan een boek begin. nr 2: write a letter to yourself in the future... Dat is voor mij iets waar ik vandaag dus een hele dag aan kan denken. Wat zou ik mezelf nu eens schrijven. En nr 69: What were you thinking just now? write it down... dat is ook zo'n mooie creatieve opdracht. Ik vind het een hele leuke lijst.
    Fijne week toegewenst,
    lieve groet van Ester

  33. I like the list....I like so many of the choices....I'm going to read it often and choose a new one....thanks for sharing it!

  34. how fun! i have seen her list, good stuff! have a beautiful week! susan

    Bedankt voor je lieve reactie.
    Fijne avond nog,
    Liefs van Ester

  39. Hi Sweet Saskia! What fun!!! I liked #33 (think up 100 uses for a tin can) I think after about 20, it could get a bit challenging!
    What a fun post, and thanks for introducing me to Keri Smith! Have a great day, Sweetie! xo Paulette ;)

  40. Hi again! Citrus jacket, blonde hair! I had to redo.. for some reason it didn't follow the first time! xoxo

  41. Hi Saskia....
    Thanks for your visit!!! Your Blog is Lovely!!!
    Love the 100 ideas. I think I like the buy something inexpensive {pen,tea cup,journal}

  42. Saskia, I love her suggestion about writing a letter to yourself in the future! Great ideas and thanks for letting us know about her!

    Kat :)

  43. I like number 95- Illustrate the concept of "simplicity". This is my illustration- "!"

  44. I have never heard of her before, but this list sounds interesting and inspiring. Off to go see!

  45. Hi Saskia!

    Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. I love yours! I love #3 here - and for me, the thing that I purchase for myself that gives inspiration is fresh flowers. Twice a month I allow myself a bunch of tulips or daisies from the market - and the give me joy all week long.


  46. Waw! I'll take a look to this blog!!! I'm curious and I'd like to learn some tips!!!
    Happy Wednesday!!!

  47. Greetings Saskia, hope your Easter weekend was better than planned. It is so interesting, I came across this list back when my daddy was in hospital I loved it and thought it was a brilliant idea and decided to do it all I have been working on it since and as a matter of fact I have started a post on it and decided to hold on to it until I complete my list. How many have you done luv?

    Love & Hugs

    P.S. Both my sisters and a few of my friends are working on it too.

  48. Thanks for the Birthday Greeting, Saskia and for following. You have an extremely lovely blog here!
