Want to know what has inspired me lately? There are far too many different people, projects, articles, and art to mention, but here's a (small) sampling of my recent favorites:
First, Kate of Marmalade Moon has reviewed books on creativity AND she's giving away one of my sterling silver bookmarks! Head on over to her blog, read her book reviews, and leave a comment to enter to win.
I am participating in String-a-Long 2010, hosted by Mousey Brown's House and Rattling On... Here's one I have already completed. These string bags work up super fast and easy, so I am making a whole bunch.
Mandy's illustration, Yellow Iron with Steam, is winning me over (even though I don't iron)
I am loving anything and everything Made by Joel
We are planning to craft a large flock of these Spring Birds
I'm brimming with ideas from the e-book 52 Weeks of Blogging Your Passion
Happy to have found 3 great ways to spend MORE money
Drooling over this recipe, from Staten Eats
The graphic artist in me has a crush on these Daily Drop Caps. I might just have to decide on a fav to use on my blog.
I'm excited to suggest Green Fundraising with Let's Go Green at the next school parents' meeting.
Jane's family (of Jane Was Here) has received roughly 720 cards, and counting. AMAZING!
...aaaaand last but not least, I had fun making a few of these Swat Team Kitties for my nephew Nicholas and another little friend, Elizabeth (happy birthday to you both!) . I hadn't knit or crocheted any new friends since the holiday projects and birthday gift. It was a much-needed break but it's good to be back at it. The girls have noticed a lack of new stuffed cuties, too, and they're putting the pressure on now. Stay tuned for more...
There's so much out there to be found on the web. I wonder what I'll stumble upon next? What will prompt me to start along a new creative path, try a new ingredient, or rethink how something is done? I promise I won't hoard all the good ideas.
