Gathering Inspiration


Gathering inspiration for a creative project today. I'm taking a class this week, taught by the awesome Debee Campos of {Art as Life} blog. We are painting and splattering, getting our hands inked, and having fun.
Today, before I started my project, I went through my stuff looking for things to inspire me, and in the process decided to capture a few things in photos. Sometimes when I see one thing, may it be a paper cut out, or bakers twine, it can lead to a little photo opp once arranged. So here's what I photographed on the side of my class project, a little gathering of things white and beige.


  1. I love this post!! damit i feel so far behind i havent started the first one! I wish this had been spread out over a couple of weeks to give me a fighting chance :P im so glad i can see everyones progress. I love this!

  2. Hi Claire,
    Thanks. Luckily I had a day off from work so I could try to catch up myself. I've been crafting all day...which I'd rather be doing than anything else :) Hoping that you'll squeeze in some crafting yourself, would love to see what you've made :)
    xo, Merissa.

  3. Hello Merissa, I have been following your blog for some time now as I love the little doll faces you draw!! Then I noticed that you had commented over at D's class blog so I thought I would pop in and say hello ;) {{{waves}}}
    I love your color board, you always take such beautiful photos, I look forward to seeing more over the next week xo

  4. Didee Hi!

  6. Hi Stella,
    Thank you :) I'm starting to like lotsa white nowadays. And I like how it looks in photos. You are right, delicate, that's so true.
    Just so happened to be my day off from work, so I did have time to stay at home and craft all day :) So fun!
    Hope you're having a good week ;) xo

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands.

Do not remove my watermarks or copyright markings from my photos (please see previous sentence). I won't bite, well unless you infringe on my copyright. But really, send me an email, I'm pretty nice. The snail mail on my blog includes my mail or the work from other artists and pen friends. I do my best to give everyone credit. But, in the case where I have missed the proper credit please contact me to address it.

Speaking of links, I do on occasion link out to other sites, however I am not responsible for the content you find on those sites. Sometimes clicking on a link I’ve provided may be a link to a site that will give me a small commission if you buy something from them. Which means that I might get paid (hopefully not in gum) if you click on that link, whoo-hoo. Reason why I’m telling you is because I want to be honest with you and frankly, because it’s illegal not to.
