Time for another Featured Shop of the Week! This week we chose The Bibelot Shops!
The Bibelot Shops have several locations in Minnesota, but they all have the same atmosphere that any person would want from a local shop of unique items. They carry every day indulgences such as clever gifts, clothing, home goods, and jewelry such as Susan Harbourt Designs! In the shop, you can see gifts that your ordinary shop would not carry! They like to show off the work of local artisans by offering collections of stationary that you might not find at your local Wal-Mart. If that does not get your attention, then the friendly workers and wonderful hospitality will! The options are endless.
The first Bibelot shop was founded 48 years ago, by Roxana Freese on Como Avenue in Saint Paul, MN. Since then, you can find her shops in three other locations as well! Roxana wanted her shops to represent the fresh and current styles that will offer a wide range of items all in one store. New items are added to the shop, daily! So you are bound to find the perfect top or gift on any day! So don't be a stranger and if you are in the Twin Cities area, be sure to stop on by, and check out these lovely shops!

When you complete a big accomplishment, and you are asked how you did, do you normally focus on what you did wrong...or do you celebrate what you did well?
I admit that I have a habit of dwelling on what I didn't do as well as I had wanted. Sometimes I even get on a fixation loop of replaying my mistakes in my head. But what I have learned is that this is not a productive behavior and can lead to anxiety and depression.
What I have started to do is focus on what I did well and acknowledge that first. Then instead of looking at my errors as mistakes, I view them as areas of improvement instead of calling them failures. For every area of improvement that I identify, I assign a new action or make a plan to improve so that maybe I don't repeat that behavior or pattern in the future.
Today I want you to reflect on 2020. Push those negative thoughts aside.

Every great movie has a great soundtrack that accompanies it. The music sets the stage for the emotions of every scene. It pulls you in, your heart syncs with the rhythm of the beat, and you will connect with the moment and really feel the emotion more deeply than if there was no music.
Visualize this: If you could write your movie, the way you would want it to look, what would the story be?

The ability to relate and to connect, sometimes in odd and yet striking fashion, lies at the very heart of any creative use of the mind, no matter in what field or discipline.
