Creative Genius

I like to think I am creative
A genius.....maybe not
but creative YES.
I pull ideas from everywhere
I mostly have them when I sleep
which results in many a restless first hour of every night
When an idea or color combo creeps in I have to get it on paper
quick....before another one comes and sweeps that one away (and this phenomenon is getting worse with age)
This is my inspiration board
where I stick goodies
that make me smile
make me wanna make something
it doesn't really have to be an idea...just color
or something special from a friend
Chloe crafts (the BEST )
or a photo of a lovie dovie
even a sprig of ribbon
anything can foster creativity
There are MANY jewels up there from Shelly
my crafty soul mate
Shelly and I spend many an hour....talking
sharing ideas
critiquing
laughing
talking about our kids
helping each other.....she is a big motivator and inspiration to me


speakin' of Shelly
eat your heart out.....feast your eyes on the lovely
journal she made just for me
Speaking of a CREATIVE GENIUS
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
so anyway....let's bring this post full circle.....
what inspires you ??
do you have an inspiration board.....if you do, what's on it
Do you know a creative genius you would like to give a shout out ( I can't believe I just said shout out) to.....comment about them......link us to their work...we would all love to see it.

BE CREATIVE EVERY DAY
have a happy day
Pin It!

I must say...you and Shelly are my top inspiration peeps! Seriously! You are the one that helped me open up my Etsy shop almost a year ago! And you were also my first purchase in the Etsy world too! I LOVE your creative creations! You and Shelly are meant to be - with your skillz!

My biggest craft inspirations are color, nature, the four seasons and whatever little whimsy pops into my head.
I don't have an inspiration board, just a lot of jumbled ideas floating in my brain at any given time. Always lots of plans in there. Some of them have come to fruition, some not. Not yet anyways. :)
I am Shelly's stalker (shhhh, don't tell her - I think she knows, but keep it to yourself for now OK?) She was one of the first Etsy sellers i bought from and I love love love her cute shop. she taste in things is soooo similar to mine. Because of her I have taken on the monumental task of learning to sew. WITH A MACHINE. It's scary, but Shelly made me do it!!!

Just me.....Shelly said...

hmmm...good question, my friend. For me, it's like...WHAT DOESN'T inspire me? I drive myself crazy all day long, always visualizing things, seeing things, putting things together in my head. Ugh, it's exhausting, hahahahha!
(but fun)....dunno if I could function any other way, really!

enjoy the journal....and thanks for those cupcakes...you know the ones that were gone before I ever had a chance to eat dinner. scrump-dil-i-umptious!
