About NND

Well hi there! It’s me, Elyn E.

3 things I’m here to share with you:

Inspiration, Monthly DIY’s, Vintage Vibes…All brought to you by my best tool for creative growth – positive thinking.

Is that why you’re here? I hope so. We’ll have so much to talk about.

I’ve got stories, opinions, how-to’s, tips ‘n’ tricks. I’ve got a rock ‘n’ roll heart and a country soul. First and foremost, I’ve got the in’s and out’s of how to find your purpose along side me finding mine.

A tiny bit about me: I’m a well traveled little thing, who’s landed in the Motor City. I spent years trying different things, wandering, dreaming – without action. As I said, I find myself here in Detroit, after a few years in Chicago (via postponed plans to move to Tennessee) and I must say, I rather love it. As fate would have it, this place is home. Life is funny that way, isn’t it?!

The contrast of growth and beauty in so many corners of Detroit, to the seeming crumble and desolation in others, is off-putting to some. Call me crazy, but, this is exactly why I said , “Yes, yes, YES” to making this unyielding metropolis my home.

You see, that contrast is how I see myself. I’ve been rebuilding my creative spirit from the inside out. The reality hit me that I’d been slipping away from myself for quite some time. I’d been a truly positive being, trapped in a very negative thought process.

Detroit has helped me grow in more ways than one.

What I’m getting at is this: We all have our dark corners, our desolate neighborhoods of thought, if you will. But! If you’re willing to do the work, have hope and vision of the life you deserve to live, these things will come – happiness, undying creativity, prosperity. That, my friends, is precisely what Detroit has always been about.

I am so grateful to be here with you, to share a new outlook on life, thanks to one fabulous city.

I have a few great, wonderful, fantastic tangible NND things in the works, too. Please stay tuned via e-mail subscription. I really, really can’t wait to offer these things to you!

I suppose it’s important to mention here that my other ‘home’ lately has been my brand new vintage shop. In short, I’m a thriftoholic, vintage babe. I’ve run out of room in my closet, so I’ve started shopping for you! You can get the full scoop on that in my shop, Five & Dime Vintage – Detroit…Just follow the link in the menu.

Join me on the journey that I call Never Not Dreaming. Watch the power of positive thinking, intention and reflection change your life. Watch boundless creativity, adventure and prosperity come to us. All the while receiving fun tips and insight that I think you’ll like.

From the bottom of my rock ‘n’ roll heart – Thank you so much for being here,

Elyn E.
