Inspiration Needed Please

24 06 2008


Summer is here. Kids, laundry and toys are everywhere. Our A/C is out… It’s Texas, it’s HOT!!! I’m feeling a little non-creative again and in need of inspiration. Last week I made a nap mat for my baby girl and this week I’ve been playing around with this new blog site… but it’s making me frustrated. I’m used to doing everything on a Mac, which is so easy that I forget what it’s like to get out of my comfort zone!


Any who, back to my need for inspiration…

As a graphic designer, I’m inspired by all kinds of stuff. It can be a street sign that is all banged up, being around other artists or the design in a leaf as the light hits it. Sometimes, I just wake up with a complete idea in my head with no need for inspiration. Lately, all I am is hot and just want to be at the mall where it’s forever cold. Maybe I’ll go tomorrow and see what inspires me there. It’s always fun to look in window displays at upscale shops. I remember seeing a display in NYC with toast pinned all over the wall. My friends thought I was nuts for taking photos burnt toast and not even looking at the clothes. But all I cared about was what I could do with toast when I got home? How long does toast last anyway? I bet if you zoom in on toast, the texture is really cool. How many different shades of brown can toast be?

Mmmmmm???? Maybe I’ll go to Neiman’s this week… fashion is always inspiring, especially shoes! Ever been to Nordstrom’s shoe department at the Galleria? Now, that is inspiring! Oh yea, I’m already feeling a little less sweaty and getting excited for my adventure. I’ll have to make a stop at Sprinkles for a cupcake… just going in that store gives me some much needed inspiration! Too bad that type of inspiration will go to my butt and not my brain.:-) Oh well, I’ll just sweat it out later anyway.


Girls are fun!

Okay… I can’t believe my baby girl will be 2 years old soon! I splurged and bought this cute pink tutu for her birthday. Of course, she LOVES it and cries when I take it off. Her favorite thing is to wear ONLY the tutu. ha. I got creative and made her a shirt for her party. It was so easy. Now I’m addicted to these iron on rhinestones! Why haven’t I done this before? ha. I’m so happy God blessed us with this precious little girl.
