This is gorgeous. I'd love to snuggle under it with my daughter and get lost in our favorite book...

My name is Elise Blaha Cripe. I live in San Diego, California with my husband and our two young daughters.

I make stuff like it's my job.

In 2015 I launched GET TO WORK BOOK®, a daily planner + goal-setting journal. In October 2019, my book about getting stuff done, Big Dreams, Daily Joys hit bookstores everywhere. For almost ten years, this blog was where I shared (daily!) general life musings, insight into being a small business owner and the occasional craft project. In 2021, I am sharing again as we prepare to move back home to Northern California and renovate our dream cottage. I have closed comments, but feel free to email me at elise[@] if you have any questions about a post you see here.

If you're new here, I invite you to browse the archives, read my small business story or start with some of my favorite things to write about, DIY home decor & goal-setting. You can also listen to my motivational speech about the power of making bold statements.

Still looking for more content? Listen to my creative podcast, take one of my eCourses or subscribe to my newsletter.
