Omwork: To encourage a sense of diving deeper into today’s podcast, I will post Omwork relating to this segment on our HTC forum. Please connect with fellow HTCs there and play with the following:

1. What are some of your spring goals?
2. What small steps (micromovements as SARK describes them) can you take this season to unleash your creativity?
3. Schedule a "moi day" where all you do all day is EXACTLY what you want to do!

Love the updates on the new studio on your You Tube page!
You must have one when everything is finished for those who won't be there............
Thanks for this podcast - they are always so valuable but my favorites are the ones where you are talking and sharing your wealth of knowledge and inspiration!
Happy Spring!!!!!

I agree, I love the podcasts and especially the ones where you are sharing your knowledge, Kimberly!

I was looking over past favorites, and wondered if you might be wiling to do a "spring fashion must haves" podcast. As I put together my wish list for spring, I'd love (and I'm sure others would agree) to know what your thoughts are! :)
