Inspiration from the unexpected ~

I love creativity.
It could be mine, yours or someone I run across
while surfing the internet ~
Seeing something that another person has made always stirs me.

Just look at these gift wrap ideas I found on Style Me Pretty...
I love looking at wedding blogs and sites ~
so much of what's shared can be adapted for every day!

I remember running across this wedding book by Sarah Lugg ~
The Handcrafted Wedding
in Michael's one day and just LOVED it....
of course it had to come home with me :)
Sarah's artwork has been featured in Victoria magazine in the past.

Look at this wonderful bird seed favor tutorial...
I want to make these right now!
Wouldn't they be beautiful hung in a tree in your yard
at Christmas time?

I love this card display idea....
maybe for a small bird botanical??
Found here....

I love looking at something,
then trying to think
of a new way to use it...

Wishing you a very happy and blessed Friday
and Easter as well!!!
hugs and love sweet friends,

And the've talked about that before to me and I so agree it IS important and heck, who wants to unwrap some of them?!? You know?
