Gina Alyse - Fuel Your Creative Calling

Ready to awaken your creative + adventurous spirit?

 

Welcome, friend!

 

Here, we're all about fueling our creative callings and going places we've never been before. 

It's nice to meet you!

I'm Gina, a writer and digital designer, who chases sunshine, loves Jesus, and likes to explore different creative outlets.

On my blog, I cater to groups of bloggers, 20-somethings, travelers and dreamers, seeking to live a life of purpose. I believe we are all creative, and we are all artists. No matter your job, passions or skills, we are called to be creative in a very unique and personal way. We are meant to solve world problems, be the best versions of ourselves and innovate in very clear and earth-shaking ways.

I believe we are called to be creative in every aspect of our lives.

Gina Alyse

So how did I get to where I am?

I graduated from Elon University, now living in the Washington D.C. area. During the day, I work as Executive Director for a local nonprofit, which serves children with developmental disabilities. At my job, I get to be a part of a start-up atmosphere and test my creativity through many projects and initiatives. In my spare time, you can find me making vegan recipes, purchasing too many notebooks, reading a good book or sitting around a bonfire with friends.

In spring 2014, I discovered my passion for traveling when I studied abroad in Seville, Spain, where I visited cities in Europe and North Africa. Traveling has shaped many of my beliefs about healthy and simple living. It's also helped me inspire others to live openly and creatively.

This is why I'm excited for you. 

I believe something magical happens when you combine adventure and creativity. And that can only happen in the context of positive community. I hope to become a travel companion in your journey of finding your next step towards your calling.

Let's do that together? Here are the roads I can help you navigate:

Creative Living – Ever wonder if your idea is actually a good one? If you are good enough to publish an e-book, write a blog, start a photography business or begin coaching? Ever feel creatively depressed? Or want to feel that spark again? Let's discover what we're supposed to create – and gain the confidence to do it.

Blogging & Design Tips – Let me take your blog to the next level with actionable design and content tips, helping you transform your online story.

Travel & Adventures – You don't have to travel to go on adventures. (But it sure helps!) Here, we will chat about travel guides, adventure tips and ways to keep the spirit of traveling with you during the everyday.

Healthy Living – If we are living with purpose, we must fuel our mental, physical and spiritual health. Health is always a journey, but it should also always be a priority. You can follow along with my health tips for self-care, food and diet, and more.

Let's connect and be friends! You can find me on Instagram (a lot), Pinterest, Snapchat, Facebook and Twitter. Or you can send an email straight to my inbox!

  • If feathers don't ruffle, nothing flies. This is my favorite quote right now. 😊Credit to the @aflacduck page for posting this awhile ago (I love the Aflac Duck, no lie 😂) Hope you're finding your Monday inspiration today!

  • Sometimes we have ideas in our head about what things should look like. A lot of times, they are based off of what other people have done and what their lives look like. 
I say – Search for the lonely ideas out there. Search for ones not from your head. Reach out into the world, and grasp a thought or two. Then, mold them. Transform them. Make them feel at home inside of you. Then, when the time comes, realize it's your responsibility to take them home – back into the world where they belong. 
P.S. I just launched my new website! Find more creative inspiration to fuel your purpose. Plus some fun adventure posts to fuel your wanderlust this summer! Link in profile :)

  • My new branding! **Website launches tomorrow** ✨🎉 I can't wait to share it with you guys! I love this font by the way.

Over the past couple years, I have been getting urges to redesign my blog. I'm very excited that the time has now come! 
Recently, I have traveled to Spain with my family, explored new cities in the U.S., got a promotion, met new friends, moved into anew office and spent time working on my website. 
All of this has been the perfect backdrop to get back into a routine with writing and blogging. ✨ **Stay tuned tomorrow for the full reveal!**
