After a less-than-stellar day yesterday, I woke up this morning ready to start anew. Cancelled trips, sick kids, and broken machinery pushed me into mope-ville and exhausted me to the point that I slept like a rock. I awoke with the feeling that today would be better and I think because that's my attitude going into it, it will be better.
I was able to get a few pieces done yesterday that I'll be listing in the shop sometime today or tomorrow. I also have a new series in the works. It's an idea that has been on paper for about 2 years that I'm just now bringing into reality and I'm excited. Photos soon. Soonish. Promise.
I've loved reading the thoughts on inspiration in response to the work by Rikkianne of You Sentimental Idiot. If you haven't, please stop over and share your story of inspiration. You could win two of her amazing prints inspired by the photo of my daughter, and in a time when the issue of "copying" has been all too front and center in our community, opening the conversation about true inspiration is a good thing.
This little guy made me smile this morning. My friend Karen made him and he's part of a giveaway she's having over on her blog. Stop on over and have a look. (she also has a muffin recipe up today that looks really yummy)
My own button de-stash continues. After putting together a collection of buttons for a teacher to use with her students it occurred to me that perhaps my son's teacher would like some buttons. I don't know why I didn't think of it sooner! There will be a few more sets of buttons and several more unsearched pound bags in my de-stash shop but the rest will be headed off to school and that makes me very happy.
Speaking of buttons, Megan over at The Crafty CPA purchased a pound bag of unsearched buttons from me and found some lovelies. Go check it out on her lovely blog.
Enjoy your weekend, everybody.
