I'm sorry I haven't posted in a few days....I actually have an annoying cold! :-P The nice thing about living in the south after spending most of my life up north is that I rarely get sick anymore. Every fall thru spring up in New England, I (and my kids!) would get sick 2-4 times, mostly with a typical cold - you know, sore throat, stuffy nose, headache, coughing - and it would last from 7-10 days....BLAH!! But since moving down here, we sometimes don't get any colds all year! As a matter of fact, I think this is my first cold in two years!! It's great.....except now I've had a sore throat and headache for the past three nights (and days), and....I hate it!!! I guess I've become a ginormous baby, because I feel miserable! :-P
So I have a post started, but I just couldn't continue it because the post screen is so white it's hurting my eyes....it's been sitting in here half-done for two nights! Well, I'm determined to finish it tonight!!
I've been thinking about Inspiration....it's the source of my creativity! :-D I can be going along, not interested in a particular thing, like crocheting, and then I'll see a picture of something, or a skein of yarn, or one of my WIPs (Works In Progress) and then WHAM!! -- I've simply GOT to crochet it! Or especially with the house -- I can have a space that I have no idea what I want there, and I can go along not thinking about it, not caring about it, even working on something else....then I'll find a picture in a magazine (or lately on Pinterest), and then I have to stop EVERYTHING and turn all my energy on that!! LOL
Lots of different things can inspire me, too! It can be a color, it can be an old antique piece of furniture, it can be a whole room! We've all seen the posts I've written about my paint samples! LOL And sometimes finding a piece of wood in a woodpile can do it, and then a fever takes over and I simply have to make something with that wood! I'm sure that happens to most people, only not everyone is inspired by the same things. See, there is an artist inside each of us!! :-D
I want to share some of the pictures I've saved (online and in my magazines) that have really inspired me lately!
So these are some of the things that have inspired me the past two weeks or so! If I get anything I want to make finished, you can bet I'll post pictures....although I do have ADD tendencies, so I might post something completely different!! LOL And actually, I really need to get some vacuuming and laundry done this week....BLAH!! :-P That's not inspiring ONE BIT! ^-^
