What inspires you?

Yes, I know I've been absent lately! I was busy planning my trip to Disney World! My husband and I had lots of fun! I know, too, that I've been back for three weeks, but still haven't done anything- OOPs! I've been getting ready for Christmas! I'm off work now, so I have some time to catch up. (I still have wrapping to do, but it can wait a few minutes! =) )

The reason for this post is this: I want to know what inspires you? Is it another artist(s), a certain piece, a whole mess of things?

I stumbled on the idea of an Inspiration Board. Here is a link to the Flickr Inspiration Board Pool. They are so impressive. Now, I want to create one. I've been thinking of the many people and things that inspire me and how I want to put them together to make an inspiration board. Here are some links to the people and their work that inspire me

Willowing (aka Tam)- Her work is incredible, and she is a very sweet soul, too!
Wade Griffith- he does the photography that is in the Studio Movie Grills that are here in Dallas
Art Junk Girl- her work and her blog fascinate me
Vintage Papers Blog (from Nancy!)- she has incredible Vintage work!!!
Gaal Creative- (Anne)- she has great photography and doesn't shy away from any creative endevor!!
The Chatty Stamper (Dawn)- she does some very inspirational work!

The Art of Meredith Dillman- fantastic fantasy art!
Golden Wood Studio (Ruth Sanderson)- she is a very impressive illustrator!

That's it for now. I want to know what inspires you!

I hope to start my inspiration board soon. I would love to see your board if you have one!

I'm anxious to see your comments and your replies!

so. . .what inspires you?

WOW, I can't believe I actually inspire someone, that is a MAJOR honor Kristin, thank you! WOW, you made my day. I want to hear all about Disney. What did you love? How was the weather? Did you have a great fantastic wonderful time??

Hi, Kristin! Thank you for your nice words! I have never done an inspiration board before, but I've done a vision board ... a board showing what you'd like to see and do in the coming year. It was a lot of fun! Good luck with your artsy project! :-)

If there is righteousness in the heart,
There will be beauty in the character.
If there is beauty in the character,
There will be harmony in the home.
If there is harmony in the home,
There will be order in the nation.
If there is order in the nation,
There will be peace in the world.
So let it be.

Merry Christmas!
