Happy New Year!
It's been over 2 weeks since I last posted! I had planned on getting back to blogging after the kids had gone back to school, but my youngest got the flu. 3 more days of staying home, only this wasn't as fun! Lucky me, E. is a good patient.
I had thought that I would get some serious stuff makin' done while there were no car pools, no early mornings, no homework, etc. but strangely I really had no desire to make anything...except fudge, cake, cookies...hmmm...I guess I was in a different kind of makin' mood!
After all that time off, I needed some inspiration. Usually, I find it visiting my favorite blogs, pinterest and perusing art and style magazines. This time I found just what I needed at:
What I liked: the layers, soft blue/greens & yellow, the pop of color from the rug, the circles on the bedding, the flowers, the white space and light, the bit of bold black
Here's my first card for 2013:
I think it's pretty evident that I found bunches of inspiration!
Recently, I posted the inspiration post on the Card Makin' Mamas Challenge Blog for the current challenge: ANYTHING GOES and included this card! The inspiration post always includes a DT project or two and a few projects from the participants that follow the guidelines & theme of the current challenge!
This week I will be setting a few creative goals, including working through my stash, organizing my studio, and scheduling my creative time, so I can exercise that creative muscle on a regular basis. I'm looking forward to sharing my creative journey and documenting my experiences in words, pictures and art. 2013 is going to be a wonderful year of growth!
Thank you for stopping by. I hope that you found something uplifting here today!
