Creative Inspiration

Do you have a list of creative projects that's about a mile long?
Ever need a jump to get those creative powers working?
Well the heat here in the valley is trying to get me into siesta mode, but I am fighting back! 
I took a quick trip to Scrapbooks-etc.  to get into the creative gear and move forward to complete some projects. It's a bright friendly atmosphere and it's air conditioned! This is one of the most wonderful shops for creativity, so grateful that it is a local shop.
Here are some photo's of the trip that I took yesterday.
In addition to the merchandise and supplies for both fabric and paper arts and crafts, they have many projects and samples on display as well as large classrooms and die cut areas to create in. They even have coupons and specials frequently all that's needed is to be in the system!

Fashion Slave

Fashion or Mode, what ever it may be, it's what we wear. 
We can celebrate it and enjoy the beauty, the charm and glamor it can bring,
We can also be addicted to it and we can scorn it. 
Or we can create it........

Create Fashion and link up to Moo Mania and make a real fashion statement!

The earth is turning so quickly these days, as a result it has been difficult to find a moment to grab a handful of supplies and create a piece of art.
However this morning I moved into a new cycle and I found just a moment to create a fabulous booklet to record the beautiful thoughts I have throughout the day. I have had so many wonderful experiences recently I want to treasure them and and show my gratitude and give thanks for all of these wonderful bounties that have been bestowed upon me!
This is the Blessings Journal:
A small 4 x 6 booklet was covered with some found materials. Scrap for the front and back cover, some flower pieces left over from a previous project and an Artchix button used as the center of the flower.
In fact this whole project was inspired by Helga at Artchix and I want to say thank you. She has created a digi sheet with a list of the most wonderful information, Flowers and what they mean.  So while my book is more of my thoughts and blessings, you can be sure it will have several entries which include flowers. Please visit Helga here at My ARTistic Life.
