Creative inspiration

Hi there!

I've been quite busy cleaning and organizing and I am still not completely done!!! Will I ever be done? Maybe. In any case, I have actually made lots of progress and I just might be able to post pics of my newly reorganized and redecorated office/scrap room (AKA: my HAPPY room). I am so in LOVE with my space. I can't wait to share it with you.

In between all the reorganizing and purging, I made time to go on a dinner and movie date to Cinebistro with my honey. We watched Marley & Me. What a great movie! It's funny, entertaining and sad all at once. Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson have some really great chemistry. A while back, we also saw Australia with Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman. What an incredible movie! It was long, but trust me, we didn't even realize it. It's a truly beautiful motion picture. Go see it!

Just before the holidays, I picked up this book and I've really enjoyed all the eye candy and creative techniques.

Kelly Rae Roberts is a gifted and highly talented mixed-media artist and I have fallen in love with her inspiring style and soulful artistic approach. I definitely recommend this book. You'll thank me later. It's called "Taking Flight: Inspiration And Techniques To Give Your Creative Spirit Wings." I even bought myself one of her cool 8x8 prints on Etsy. I can't wait till it gets here!

Oh, and guess what? I made my first-ever Designer Digitals purchase -- although I'll probably use it on a traditional paper project :-) I fell in love with Ali's new Valentine's circles and for only $3.99, it was well worth it! I plan to make a little Valentine's mini or tag book and a layout with these...

So, what's inspiring you lately? Please share!

I hope you find your creative wings and take flight, as Kelly would say!
