i love being surrounded by crafty stuff.
i enjoyed reading crafty blogs, books and magazines.
most of all, i love being around crafty people-they inspire, uplift
and generally make my life an awesome place to be.
today i am going to share 2 different things that inspire me to create and make stuff.
firstly i'd like to introduce you to michelle dyson.
she is my upline, my mum and my friend.
she constantly inspires me with her ideas, her work ethic and her attitude.
i felt very loved to be given a cherry on top award by her
now i have to share 3 things about me
fact #1 my favourite colour is orange
fact #2 i got proposed to by the love of my life steve on top of the eiffel tower
fact #3 i love bubble baths
now for 5 blogs that inspire me
2. ryn gibbs
4. sam surplice
there are many others but these ladies have to be my favourites :>
another site that inspires me is
each week a movie is picked to inspire you to create something...
a fantastically novel idea to get your creative mojo going i think!
this week (challenge #98) was dead poets society
one of my all time favourite movies which still makes me want to randomly cry
"my captain! my captain!"
in crowded shopping malls
(but i don't cos i am a wuss!lol)
anways here is my take on that challenge...
a mini album using the inspired by nature stamp set
loads of glorious ink all over a wooden board book
a suede-look flower with a felt middle
copious amounts of hoarded ribbon and
some ephrema (sp?) found rummaging through a local op shop
here's a close up of the cover.
isn't that butterfly cool?!
that's me for today.
i am busy making stuff for the mater dei school fair.
if you are out my way come and say hi
