How Pinteresting! Some Random Inspiration for You

So, when I sat down to write this post, I was uncharacteristically and woefully uninspired.

Which never rarely happens.

And there really wasn't any attributable reason for it. I had just had a lovely breakfast with Moxie Fabber Helen Fournier who was on her way to the airport after a visit with her family who lives near my neck-of-the-woods:

Helen and Cath finally meet!

It was raining outside, and truth be told, I really enjoy writing when there's a good rainstorm going on. There's just something so calming about the rhythm of the drops as they fall, the austere grayscape becoming a backdrop for sincere thoughts.

And equally puzzling, my office was clean and sparkly after having finally put away the trappings from my recovery now that I'm sleeping peacefully in my own bed. Since I pretty much lived in my office for three months after my surgery, there were all kinds of blankets, pillows, lotion bottles, books, magazines, tissue boxes, and the like strewn about. You'd think that all that order would free my creative spirit.

And it's not like I didn't have any ideas floating around in my brain. But I was lacking creative ways to pull them all together. I couldn't come up with one single theme to save my life.

Maybe I was just tired. Or having an off day. You know. It happens.

And I don't know about you, but for me, when Mojo hides under the covers all day long and you have to come up with something because that's how you make your living, the first place I now turn to is Pinterest.

Which is what I did. I clicked on my Pinterest home page that's filled with all the pins of everyone I follow and voila! Instant blog post. For what is inspiration if it isn't random? Check it:

This joyful banner was pinned by Laura Williams. I love how multi it is. Multi-shaped, multi-colored, multi-delightful!


I can't get over the detail in this Victorian home pinned by Windy Robinson:


I absolutely adore foxes these days, so this little guy pinned by Etsy really caught my eye:


Carolyn Gavin, an artist for one of my favorite stationery companies, Ecojot, has very intriguing pins. She always pins great global art like this vintage cover of a Japanese magazine:


Check out the gorgeous typography in this branding piece pinned by Nichole Heady:


And how fun is this color/pattern combination from Threadsense pinned by Katie Gehring?


I don't know if you know this about me or not, but I used to sew. All the time. This fabric basket from Make It Do is not only darling, but there's a link to a tutorial on how to make it. Thanks, Piali Biswas!


And if you happen to follow me on Pinterest, you know that I pin a lot of food. This delectable concoction from Bakers Royale was pinned by Terri Davenport. It's all her fault.


Doesn't everyone on Pinterest follow Joy Cho? I'm pretty sure she's a Pinterest pre-requisite. I mean, she has almost 4 million followers. This orange ombre necklace has all kinds of crafty possibilities, dontchatink?


I gasped out loud when I saw this polka dot tulle dress pinned by Margie Romney-Aslett:


And doesn't this logo remind you of ribbon? Thanks for the inspiration, Gayatri Murali!


I cannot get over the cuteness of these vintage origami dresses pinned by Sarah Jay:


And not only do these hand colored lovelies pinned by Jane Beljo add to my current infatuation with canning jars, but the colors are absolutely mesmerizing as well:


This Button Tree painting by Monica Furlow was pinned by Clare Buswell, and I'm still drawing upon its magic:


And this? Well, this ombre dot blouse from Sundance just makes me giddy. I guess that's why I pinned it for myself.


How 'bout you? What do you do when Mojo has taken a vacation? Which of these pins are you most inspired by? Leave me a comment by midnight EDT on Sunday, September 2 and I'll draw one random lucky to win something yummy from my moxie magical prize drawer as my thanks for joining in on the discussion.

Pinterest to the rescue!

~Cath

PS The deadline for the Minty Fresh challenge is closing in! Don't miss your chance to offer all of us some moxie mint-spiration!

PPS It's time to support one of our own. As I mentioned in this post, Moxie Fabber Jennifer Scull has been battling breast cancer. She's been through chemotherapy, and to add insult to injury (no pun intended), Jen has multiple tears in her left rotator cuff and has to have it repaired before she can start radiation. I can think of nothing worse than to have to go through such a grueling surgery and its accompanying physical therapy on top of battling cancer. Click HERE to get started on Jen's Sunshine Blog Hop sponsored by Paper Makeup Stamps and Party Time Tuesdays. If you leave a comment on Jen's blog, you'll be entered to win some goodies from Paper Pretties, Jane's Doodles, A Muse Studios, Stampin' Up!, and a suite of 6 magazines from Paper Crafts. And/or click HERE to buy the digital stamp set created especially for Jen, the proceeds of which will go directly to her family. I know Jen would appreciate it, and so would I. :)

Mornin'. I actually find a walk in the great outdoors (even just around the block which for me is nice since I live in the boonies) does wonders to clear mental block. When's the last time you purposely went for a walk under an umbrella?!?!?
Love those colored mason jars. Had to go see how she did that. I'm ready for fall and those tones.

Isha said...

You are so right about Pinterest Cath, its Pinteresting to find tons of info there;) . Love all the inspiration photo, so its hard to choose but those different shape banners just pull me towards them a bit more :)

Tanja said...

I love the button tree and the silk ombre blouse (so much that I had to check out their website!)

Piali said...

Fabulous Pinterest Picks....and thank you so much for including the fabric Basket ! I like sewing & quilting , I will make some of these for my craft room!!
Turquoise with Black/white chevron is FAB!! The button tree painting is Gorgeous!! Thanks for the lovely inspirations!

Craftilicious said...

The button tree definately - firstly its stunning, but secondly because I've just discovered an artist who makes massive pictures using chads (the circles from hole punches) which it reminded me of - check out her world record picture using over half a million tweezer placed circles! http://www.nikkidouthwaite.co.uk/inseine.htm

Becky Garrison said...

The picture that really caught my eye was of that outfit with the chevron skirt! I really love the black, white and aqua. I also go to pinterest for inspiration, but first I go to my 'bonus blog' where i have a huge list of bloggers who inspire me. You can find it here >>> http://whereigotobeinspired.blogspot.com/

Pam said...

So many eye candy pics! I'm drawn to the canning jars and the fabric basket. I've made a fabric vase before, but love this one! Thanks Cath!

julie e said...

When stumped, I start wandering on the internet. I'm a scrapbooker and often find a sketch that gets me started.

Your picks are wonderful and so hard to choose. I want to eat that dessert, but I think the colorful canning jars were my favorite picture for inspiration.

Jean said...

I head online for inspiration! Blogs, websites and Pinterest.

Love the pins you polled. you are right - those canning jars are amazing!

Moosisk said...

The Herr jars and the button tree painting inspire me! I am drawn to bright and fun colors. Thanks for finding some awesome inspirational pics for us. :D

Katy said...

These pictures are so cool! I usually go see what challenges there are to get my mojo re-energized. I will go look at Pinterest next time. I really like the tree and the oragami dress the best. Thanks for sharing! :)

Kelly Jean said...

Love all the photos. Definitely think the polka dot tulle dress is my fav, although that cake looks heavenly! I like to spend time with my bunnies and hubby. It helps clear my mind and "get away" from things for a bit.

Kelly S. said...

Oh Pinterest! One of the best "inventions" since coffee :)!! I LOVE that button tree pinned by Clare Buswell! That sweet basket also makes me want to blow the dust off my sewing machine. I could fill at least 20...make that 30...with all kinds of crafty things!

Hussena said...

All the inspiration pic are really eye catching and i love Pinterest and its my go to place for some instant inspiration for sure...for me the ombre neckpiece in shades of orange was my fave...it somehow calls to me :)

Cheryl Leong said...

wow.. nice pinspiration!!

cheryl131091 at yahoo dot com

Janet said...

Thanks for these great pics. When I need inspiration, I often surf Pinterest, or some of my favorite blogs. Thanks for the chance to win, and I really liked the picture of that colorful house.

Houses Built of Cards said...

I totally have those days! In fact, I have been struggling with it a little already, since we have been temporarily camping out in a rental for the last two weeks, and finally move into our new house later this week. I packed some of my crafty stuff...but it is incredibly hard to craft out of a box!!! Even when I get inspired, I find myself getting frustrated trying to find what I'm looking for! So...I have been spending a lot of time on Pinterest stock-piling ideas!!! LOVE the oragami dresses and those pretty canning jars!!!

Mrs_Mac said...

I usually look through some of my older photos. It usually recalls a memory and gets me going again.

Rebecca Ednie said...

When my mojo takes a vacay, I try a challenge that's hard for me or unusuale. I'm often surprised how well it works out. Or I try another craft for a while, CASE something I've made I LOVE or make a gift for someone. I love the origami dresses, the lace dress and the typography Nichole pinned. And I'd kill for a piece of that ice cream cake! I think I pin more peanut butter desserts than anything else!

TLady said...

I USUALLY turn to ANOTHER CRAFT for awhile---like knitting. If I don't already have a project going, I do "mindless" knitting. Now, that DOESN'T mean I just knit to knit! I end up making a DISH CLOTHE! Just a simple pattern. I make ALL my own dish clothes. Just DOING SOMETHING with my hands gets my mind going! :)

Kailash said...

Thanks so much for all this lovely inspiration Cath, You never fail to amaze me how you wow us each time with visual candy. I love the button tree painting by Monica, the colors are so vivid and bright. Thanks for this really cool post!!!

Jennifer Scull said...

oh how I love to wander the boards of Pinterest! those gorgeous mason jars have ideas racing through my mind, and man oh man, do I ever love that Sundance blouse! the button tree is so beautiful for just so very many reasons..... sigh.....

thank you, Cath, for mentioning my blog hop, and also for the most generous donation. you truly rock the casbah, lady! :)

may you have a most amazing day!

Cindy C. said...

When my mojo runs away, I come to your blog. There are all sorts of beautiful photos! And I enjoy your writing. And there are so many submissions to the contests and I love checking the many stamper's blog. Thanks for a great source of inspiration Cath!

Lindsey said...

Let's see, when I'm missing mojo, there's: my PC mags and this blog, other stamping blogs, a flip through an SU catalogue or two, and definitely pinterest! I just have to be careful that all my crafting time doesn't get used up looking and admiring! :P

Kathy/NorthCarolina said...

When my mojo has gone AWOL, I clean. I start organizing my scraps, or my embellishments, or cleaning off the shelves in my crafting closet. And I always, without fail, find something there that excites me and gets me on the creative path once again. Plus, as a bonus, I have a tidier workspace. Win, win!

Colleen Dietrich said...

Hmmmm...when Mojo has left me and I need to find it, I walk away from my crafting supplies and organize something: a junk drawer in the kitchen, a shelf in the basement, or in the medicine cabinet. The organizing does something to trigger my creativity!

Lin said...

You hit quite a few buttons for me with these, Cath: the jewel-tone canning jars first and foremost, but that chevron skirt and the button tree, too. And of course, that dripping choco dessert :)) No fair, it's only 9-something am and I'm thinking about food.....

And I will certainly check out the info about Jennifer - thanks so much for the heads-up.

Mary Mac said...

I stacks and stacks of old magazines and I start looking thru them. You never know when something you have seen a few hundred times looks new again.

Julie E said...

The Threadsense photo is the most inspiring!

Kelly Jo said...

I totally love the picture of the aqua shirt with the black and white chevron skirt- those are my favorite colors so I am drawn to that picture.

I find so much, too much in fact, inspiration online so what i like to do is get some ideas and completely walk away from the computer and do another task for a bit then come back to my paper supplies and get to work.

It helps clear my mind and come up with something of my own based on various inspirations!

ShoppingTamii said...

love the origami dresses!

my mojo has been gone since I started back to work...I hope to figure out how to get it back soon!!!

Carol Gibson said...

Love the Victorian Home.

Betty-Ann said...

Great inspiration for me in many of these but I especially love the blouse...want one!!!

diana said...

Thanks for the Pinterest inspirations today! The fabric basket has me looking for my sewing supplies. Those colored jars are just the reason I've been saving up my own mason jars. And those origami dresses ... so moxie fabulous! TFS ;-)

Sandra Strait said...

When I have a creative block, I just keep creating but I place no expectations on myself, and I allow myself to create garbage. If something is horrendous I just set it aside to be pieced into another project and start the next. It usually doesn't take long before my muse decideds to come back out and play.

Tammy said...

Oh I hear ya Cathy! Just had hand surgery and have been feeling the same way! I have a brand new Cricut cartridge from CTMH and have lost my mojo to start playing with this fab item.

My thoughts are to lock myself in my craft room over this 3 day weekend. Love the aqua/orange combine dress ! Wish me luck!

Maryann said...

When I´ve lost my mojo I almost always invite my granddaughters to come and craft with me, cause they´re always filled with so many awesome ideas about things, they want to make, so they´ve always been able to make my mojo working again in a very short time then, as they keep popping out with funny ideas, and there´s always some of them that can be use or at least make the mojo working again with an idea born from this. It has never failed me yet. But if they´re not available, I mostly try with a sketch for a card, then it sets the brain at work right away.
And next what have inspired me the most here? Well I think it´s a mix of many of them, cause I loved the chevron pattern and many of the other colors and shapes, so I would probably make a card or an album with many of the ideas here, they´re really awesome.

Mary Mac said...

I love to check out other blogs to see what people are working on. It dosn't have to be papercrafts. Quilt blogs are wonderful inspiration for color.

maria mcclure said...

Thanks for the great pics! I also go to Pinterest, but sometimes a quick cleaning of my craft area uncovers some odd little tidbits or leftovers from a previous project which I suddenly see in a new light. Other favorites include coloring with my 3 year old and visiting some of the flickr pools for the groups I've joined. The Hero Arts group, in particular, is so active and full of inspiration, warm welcomes and consistent encouragement!

Sue D said...

I either blog hop or clean up my work space to get my mojo back. I like the Birds and Bees pinned by Nichole and those cute origami dresses.

Scrapycandy said...

I'll pray for Jen. And I have to say I really want a piece of that ice cream cake! I am fascinated by the type of buttons on that tree...not so easy to find I think. And I think you love the changing of color values...intense to light? It is dynamic...emits energy somehow. I think it can be very important in card making. Thanks for the inspiration!

Maureen Morton said...

I am so delighted that you hooked up with Helen - she is one of my dearest bloggin' buddies! And, life is such a process, Cath......you have such high standards for yourself (same here, dearie). Cut yourself some slack. Even when you are uninspired, you rock my soul! Will check in on Jennifer. Thanks for all of it, Cath.

Angel said...

i like the vintage origami dresses but my favorite (which i pinned it earlier this week as well) is still the button tree!! gorgeous! :)

so sorry to hear bout jen tho... :(

Julie Cade said...

My mojo is vacationing too, so I turn to the blogs I follow and Pinterest as well. You've provided more folks to follow so thank you! The blouse inspires me most...love the colors. It makes me feel like fall!

jordanbev5 said...

Wow! Where to start...Thank you for telling us about Jen! God bless her in this fight! Also, glad you are feeling better!! Yeah!
Pinterest: YES! Already been there this morning! find new people and then off to read their blogs...
tons of info but photos of objects that inspire me really helps! The more creative the pinner is, or pinned item, the better. Favorite Pin: Photo of Capri and remembering a past afternoon spent there, so long ago, that brings me peace.
Well, that's all I'm sayin'

Jen Cuthbertson said...

Wow, thanks for the inspiration!! I love those vintage origami dresses and thank you for reminding me to dust off Pinterest!! Off to Jen's blog...

Lisa M. (aka Lisabee) said...

I totally love Pinterest! And since I follow you, I see all this goodness on my home page! LOL! I think my favorite of these is definitely the colored canning jars! I mean--seriously...I'd just can water in them to see the colors on my shelves! LOL!

thanks for supporting Jen...I know it means a lot to her!

Helen F. said...

When my mojo goes missing, I head right over to Moxie Fab World, because even on one of your 'off' days, YOU are a wealth of inspiration to us! Cath!
I hope you know just how much you mean to all of your friends! XOXO

Off to visit Jen now~

Joyce said...

Oh, those pins are all so inspiring and fun. My favorite is the little origami dresses. My daughter is big into origami, and it makes me think of her, and I am going to show this to her and see if she can make some for me to put on a card. I never thought of putting origami on a card, and now I can't wait to try it.

Teresa Zuehls said...

Thank you for all the lovely inspiration today!! When I've lost the mojo I just take a break, do something else and come back later. Sometimes inspiration will come to me just out of the blue when I am doing the "something" else" and I'll drop what I'm doing and go start the project before I forget.

richardbreaks said...

Pinterest is a wonderful thing, even if it does suck every moment of the day out of me!! I am in love with the banners and the jewel toned Ball jars!!

Geri said...

Blog stalking usually gets my mojo back! I get so inspired seeing what others are creating! Love the 'twist of rainbow colored ribbon'. Great post Cath! These pics were my dail dose of inspiration :)

Dr. J said...

Oh I love the colourful Victorian house. It looks like one of the "painted ladies" in San Fran. I am just now working on layouts of our San Fran visit last summer. Thanks as always for the inspiration!

Tona said...

I love those canning jars...makes me want to break out my alcohol inks.

Mary-Anne V said...

I look at the amazing blogs for inspiration when I feel like I am out of ideas. Love the origami dresses...adorable.

Kelly Sas said...

Oh I love the origami dresses! They inspire me to make a card with dresses I have always wanted to do. I also know of a great quilt with dresses I always wanted to make using fabric from the dresses I made our daughters while growing up.

Mary Mac said...

I find walking outside or a good hike is way to clear your head.

Gill said...

I look at crafty blogs for inspiration. That button tree is amazing.

kim.scrapper said...

I think some of those images are amazing but I love the colors of those mason jars and they could inspire me to create something fun, tfs

Julie S. said...

I start blog hoppin. There is so much amazing talent out there . Great pics !!

MadeByKarla said...

yummy cheesecake :) I'm not sure if I should thank you or hate you :p

Heather (goldiecar) said...

The ombre necklace makes me want to find some clay and make my own!! <3

jackie 4124 said...

Pinterest is the first place I go for inspiration. Whether its for cards or a new woodworking project.
I love the purple and orange jars together. Beautiful combination

JessicaT said...

When i've lost my crafty mojo there are a few places I look - the Moxie Fab World Blog :-), Pinterest, and I also look at my own crafts and see what i've done in the past.
My fav of these pics is the top & skirt - aqua and b&w stripe combo(by Katie Gehring). I love the fresh summery colours.

Carol said...

Love that Button Tree, it really speaks to me!

Lisa's Creative Niche said...

Wow, so many beautiful pictures... When mojo leaves me I step away from the craft room, play with the kiddies, read a book, or simply become a couch potato with the hubby! I have to say that I love the button tree and that fox, the two together could make some beautiful crafts! Thanks so much!
Lisa

jengd said...

This morning when I read your post, I had to immediately go out and find that Button Tree painting by Monica Furlow. Definitely pinned that one myself!

kate blue said...

when my mojo's left the building, I turn to Pinterest or Etsy or a food magazine...but I oohed and aahed over tons of your goodies and my fav was actually the banner-it made me instantly think:PARTY IN DA HOUSE!

rush said...

the button tree painting speaks to me of mystery. what is up in the attic of branches? perhaps my muse? i need the wind to send my muse into motion. alas, the weather is calm.

Casey said...

Wow these are all fantastic! Im really have trouble just picking one! I really love that Color combo on the Threadsense Pin! The combo of the colors and patterns is absolutely perfect! Thank you for sharing and constantly inspiring us all!!

Laraine R said...

These are all Fabulous Pins!! But the one that hits me is the ombre dot blouse from Sundance!! Glad to hear you are doing so much better! Thanks for the chance to win!

Kathy Mc said...

Pinterest shares some fabulous things. My favorite one you've shown in this post is Reese's Brownie Ice Cream Cake, because I L-O-V-E desserts and new recipes!

Jennifer said...

Love your random picks! Pintrest is great for inspiration...I could see quite a few of these becoming Tuesday Triggers =)

Jennifer said...

Love your random picks! Pintrest is great for inspiration. I can see quite a few of these making their way onto a Tuesday Trigger challenge!

Lori said...

Love the Button Tree and those colored Canning Jars are Incredible, Cute!

Shirley said...

I generally get my inspiration from the craft blogs I follow. Those little origami dresses are so cute!

Lexi said...

You are the one that always inspires me! Pintrest and chocolate help too!

marylouh said...

I keep seeing these little oragami dresses on different sites. I think they are so cute and something I would like to try to copy. You had a lot of interesting things on this post.

Amy Jones #8546 said...

Would have to say the button tree painting is the most inspiring to me. The circles and colors are great. If I stare at it for a few minutes then close my eyes I see the colorful circles floating around making designs.

Some Lucky Dog said...

I stay up way too late surfing Pinterest. That Button Tree Painting makes my heart happy!

Erin (Homemade Cards by Erin) said...

Love the chevron skirt... I find inspiration through other bloggers.

frommycraftroom said...

If I lose my mojo I google. Love the button tree and the origami dresses. They are both fabulous. Thanks.

Sisters Craft Cafe said...

Hmm I don't get what MOJO is but I super love the yummy ice cream cake! How tempting and mouth watering.

Luanne

jklswife said...

I can't believe those little dresses are origami!

I am also fascinated by containers of any sort...jars particularly, so the colored mason jars are DA BOMB!!!

Kris said...

Oh that button tree painting had me instantly! I don't do Pinterest... because I'd never get anything else done, like reading this post of yours, if I did!

Pam said...

Love Pinterest! The button tree and the color combo from Threadsense really pulled me in.

lostinpaper said...

I go back to basics (stop trying to be TOO fancy) and just keep it CAS, it's my 'go to' style!

Amy said...

Anything minature or cute always helps to inspire me - those little origami dresses are adorable!

Holly Saveur said...

LOVe the ombre dot blouse..those colors ..they inspire me the most!

{VICKI} said...

that fabric basket has gotten my attention!

KnitterPam said...

I'm loving the origami dresses, the colored canning jars and the button tree painting. So cool! I LOOOOOOVE Pinterest!

paulettespretties said...

Cath, I'm so glad you are back to feeling like yourself. Thank you for the invtations to Pinterest. I'm finally going to take the plunge. LOL I've resisted thus far. I spend too much time on the WWW anyway. LOL I don't know how it is for everyone else, but I just have this need for bomboardment of paper crafted art and I get a ton of blog posts delivered to my email box. I finallly started blogging, after wanting to do so for over a year. I love watching video tutorials and I love making them. LOL Several people in my little circle are pinning and love it, so I'm in, if only for the sake of those Missing Mojo fits. I love the little oragami dresses! Thanks for a chance to win some goodies. Have a Moxillicious Day!

hopefulcrafter said...

I love the canning jars and also just love pinterest (of course I follow you also).

Amanda Coleman said...

Ugh, I hate it when my crafty mojo goes on vacation. Nothing worse when you need an idea AND you're on a deadline! I often turn to Pinterest, too. It usually gets the juices flowing. I am loving that garland in the first picture. So many ideas!

ragnhild@tampabay.rr.com said...

Love the button tree painting.
I want to make one.

Chasn Paper said...

I am like you! Lots of ideas, but can't seem to pull it together! I always go blog hopping, which sometimes works, sometimes not. Sometimes I'm just left with more ideas with no place to go! Eventually it all comes around. I am so loving those cute little origami dresses. The speak to me, and are making my head swim with new ideas! Thanks Cath!

Sarah said...

Want to swap? I have more mojo than I can use. I've been trying to keep it flowing when I can't get to my craft table by adding to my Pinterest boards and sketching, sketching, sketching.

But when it's on vacation, I love flipping through my older issues of Paper Crafts to find some forgotten color combination, layout, or technique that inspires me.

Tricia said...

The Button tree and Polka Dot Tulle dress are very inspiring!

KanataNewf said...

I NEED to find how to make those adorable origami dresses! Wouldn't they be delightful on birthday cards?

MarcyK924 said...

Pinterest is therapy that I don't have to pay for, LOL! If I need inspiration or just a distraction - I am ALWAYS happy while pinning. Just do a search for "CUTE" and it's instant smiles!

Myoriah said...

When I'm in a crafting funk I look through books and will try a new technique which often jump starts me. Sometime looking through my stash of digital images helps spark an idea. Several blogs help jump start the creative process. Especially Moxie Fab World. When all else fails I go and take a bath. For some reason soaking in the tub sparks my creativity. Now all I need to do is find a waterproof pen and make a vinyl pad to write the ideas on. LOL!

Agata said...

Wonderful pins! I started pinning not so long ago but I have to admit, it's addictive! I love those jars (used to make my own, I guess I will start again!). But also those cute dresses because I just love Origami!

Rachel said...

love the button tree!!!!

Jenny McGee said...

That button tree is adorable. I love it. Thanks for a chance to win a prize. jeannett_mcgee@comcast.net

c.darwin said...

I've been "pinning" every night this week and feeling very inspired. Can't get those colored mason jars out of my head now!

Karen Letchworth said...

The beautifully colored Mason jars do it for me! Lots of wonderful inspiration!

By the way, always praying for Jennifer. Every single day.
Blessings,
Karen

Jennifer Rzasa said...

Wow, that tulle dress is gorgeous!

Flo S. said...

When I don't feel inspired, I leave it alone and come back later with a fresh eye. Thanks.

Gwen said...

THOSE canning jars....oh wow! I don't create when I don't feel like it. Other ways of being creative like gardening or painting a room get put into action.

Helen L said...

I love the lettering pinned by Nichole heady: I'll bet we'll be seeing something from PTI with similar lettering soon!! :-) and I love that basket: SEW many things to make and not enough time!!! Great inspiration!
