a little introduction

Welcome to GINGER*URCHIN! A blog dedicated to craft inspiration and tutorials; to blogging and social media tips; with a little entrepreneurial randomness thrown in for good measure!

My name is Beka, aka: 'the voice behind the screen'. A life-long learner and explorer with a passion for creative expression and techy web things, I absolutely love sharing what I have discovered with others so that they can do the same. You can read more about me and why I started this blog over here.

In the meantime, I would be honoured to have you as part of the Ginger*Urchin community – so please, grab your favourite beverage and allow me to show you around.

:: What you will find here

I’ve been blogging at GINGER*URCHIN since 2010 and have always loved to share a good craft project or two. More recently I have begun sharing my thoughts on blogging and social media tips. What with these and my enthusiasm for entrepreneurship there has sprung a natural fascination also for the creative process. My long time go-to tools in support of which are the tarot and journalling.

Some of my particular favourite posts of late include 5 ways to optimise your blog for Pinterest, how to create a cohesive blog (when you love all the things), daily creative practice with Morning Pages, going deeper by exploring the light + dark of Tarot and my sleepy felt sheep eyemask.

Other good ones include my 11 good reasons to Instagram and why I believe creativity is an act of radical self love, my home office perpetual wall calendar and these quick wine glass charms.

:: Meet me in the Salon

I wholeheartedly believe that we are all capable of achieving the things we set our minds to given the tools to do so. I am particularly passionate about helping multi-talented creative minds achieve that full potential in flow with their natural rhythms.

To this end I created The Salon Collective; a free, bespoke mastermind and mentorship group for these Mercurial Ones to receive the support that they need to create the ease and flow that nourishes their evolving journey.

If the idea of living a full, 360° multi-passionate thriving life excites your spirit, one that effortlessly encompasses all your interests, however frequently they may change, and that allows for the flexibility to do just that, you are very likely one of #theMercurialOnes.

To find out, read my eguide, 'The 9 Signs You’re a neu-Renaissance Soul' and discover if this is the resource you have been looking for.
