Creativity matters to me...a lot.In fact, the very first line of the Reverie + Felicity Studio Manifesto is, “I believe that we’re all innately creative.”
I delight in including encouraging quotes on the inside of Reverie + Felicity Studio candle lids to inspire your creative moments.
On social media, I share my creative pursuits and even my creative spaces with you.
And, in my emails to Reverie + Felicity Studio Insiders, I share what has been sparking my creativity in the hopes they might help others unlock their creative potential.
Today, I want to share a few of the creative books that are currently on my nightstand. These are books that got my gears turning, ignited my motivation, and stretched my thinking about what it means to be a creative being living in the modern world.

In Big Magic, Elizabeth Gilbert shares abundant creative permission at every turn. It was a wake-up call for me, and it changed the way I think about prioritizing creativity in my days.
