Let's talk inspiration
Today I thought I would put my projects aside and talk about the people that have given me that inspiration to create! I am always looking at blogs throughout the day...sometimes hours will go by and I have been sitting in one spot glued to my monitor. I can't complain, but I'm sure my husband would like to see me once in a while. I feel like I have so much energy to put into little creations here and there. I wish I could say it came from within myself, but that wouldn't be true. Apart from a God who blesses me more than I deserve, I am surrounded by a world FULL of creative people. Doesn't it make you sick, the things people can do and come up with? I feel this excitement come over me....why can't I do that?! And I can. I just have to work at it, that's all.
So, to all you individuals that have helped me discover my inner passions to create lovely things: I dedicate todays blog to you. Here are a few pictures I have taken from a few of my favorite blogs.
1.Grey Gardens: Must see movie and the interior decor is what I want my house to model after....one day!
2. Apartment Therapy: For all your home makeover questions and ideas! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this site. They have some of the cutest homes I have ever seen and tons of project ideas. I loved this one: Flea Market Faboosh.
3. Love Fox Vintage: A relatively close business, which I have the utmost respect for. 2 girls decided to take a step out into the unknown and venture into the business world selling vintage clothes and finds. It's not just the items they sell that inspire me, but the risk they took to turn a dream into a reality! I have blogged about these guys once, but I wanted to write about them again because they have inspired me to set goals and push through fears. I'm chasing my dreams....slowly!
