Finding Inspiration

Hey everyone! I really wanted to do a blog this week talking about inspiration. As someone who crafts daily and has a creative business, its hard to constantly come up with new and exciting ideas every day. People say its important to have a creative outlet, but what happens if your creative outlet lines up with your business? I just wanted a pure text blog talking about this topic, maybe some of it will help you! Keep reading to find out more!

Watercolor Sunset

Hello everyone! Remember the sunset picture from last week’s blog? If you read the bottom caption then you would already know that this week’s post is all about! The sky in the picture was so beautiful and I instantly wanted to watercolor it. I had to wait nearly a week to do so, but luckily I had two reference pictures to help! Here’s the sunset picture to refresh your memory and then we’ll get into it!

Distressed vintage father’s day card

Hello everyone! This week’s post is all about good ole dad! I recently made my dad a father’s day card. I saw a video recently by Lindsay Weirich aka thefrugalcrafter where she made a steampunk father’s day card. I was instantly inspired to make a card with some of the tips she shared! Now, I didn’t want to copy the design I made for my dad, so I did a different design on two cards. I knew I needed to

A. Write a blog post for the week and

B. Put a dad/father’s day card up in my shop

This was my solution, the good old-fashioned “Kill two birds with one stone” Keep reading to see my thought and creative process for the cards, along with a list of supplies!

Funky Pattern Card

I’ve been out of commission since Tuesday morning when I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed. There’s been no complications but healing is a slow process. Today when im starting to write this (Sunday, June 5th) and Today when im posting this (Monday the 6th) is the first days where the pain is bearable to work. I’m telling you, this has been rough and really hard when it comes to my creating process. No desire to work or do anything that I love doing. Luckily, inspiration struck late Saturday night and it was enough to pull me out of the pain and medication fog ive been in!

I was recently (as in 2 days ago) hit with the task of making three graduation cards for some family members!

I’m very happy with how they turned out and im excited to share my thought process while making them! All materials from each card will be listed at the end of the post!

Share joy challenge #35

My very first blog post is dedicated to the card I made for the share joy challenge! http://sharejoychallenge.blogspot.com/ I loved the idea of this challenge and I immediately thought of my older sister who was just in a car wreck. Luckily she is just fine but with the stresses of that, she definitely need some joy! I chose the tic-tac-toe option of leaves, yellow and scallops!
