Saturday- Recipe of Inspiration

Let' face it...
we are all collectors at heart.
As creative people we tend to keep a look out for things; to create our artsy projects.
 Search for the unusual, always!
Find recyclable materials we can put to good use...
and create a wonderful piece of art.
We collect :
paper scraps, ribbons, buttons,
game pieces, smooth rocks,
paper towel rolls, wire,
soup cans, cardboard...
the list goes on and on!
why not take pictures of these inspiring goodies we are collecting?
Remembering why, we were filled with such joy
to have found priceless objects...
is very inspiring in itself!
But as you know...
there is no rules to inspiration.
There might be objects around your home...
that "spark" your creativity.
Explore and research things that create that element for you.

Get a box, be creative.
Use a Rolodex. (this works well for this project)
Index cards, blank, lined or colored.
Tabs, for subject
paint, color, doodle...
Have fun with it!
Collect your pictures, recipes, sample paper, 
textures, quotes, colors...
whatever draws you in, inspires that creativity!
This is about discovering yourself
seeing the connection between the things that move you
and inspire you to be artistic.
soon to come...
I will be posting my 
recipe of inspiration.
Happy Saturday!


  1. Wow this is great. I've been feeling down lately, wondering if I need a box of happy/inspiration and your post really inspires me. Thank you - it's so cool looking into your daily visuals. Did you make the tire swing/horsie?

  2. Glad I could bring a smile to your day! :]
    Yes, the swing is in my yard... pretty cool huh?
    I think it is important to inspire one another, keep the creative spirit alive.
    Take care.

  3. Great ideas! Thanks for the daily thoughts and inspiration! Valerie
