Finding Inspiration

Each new year finds me encouraged
 for new ideas and creations. 

This season with all the clean out,
reorg and re-freshening of  my home.
I've been slow to restart my design ideas.
I know they are not far away,
 just regrouping of sorts.

While I love to get out in the world viewing nature and the world around me,
 I realize, I really don't have to go far for the inspiration to create.

Most of the time, it's right here at home in my Texas cottage. 
 Here and there among the treasures I love,
 the books I read and the views right outside my window.
So I curl up in a comfy chair to read beautiful words.
Just nesting this time of year,
 gathering thoughts for creations to follow.
Music has always been inspiring to me.
 Listening to the rhythm of beautiful note combinations
 seem to show me the way and direction.

This weekend however will find me visiting
The Silo's
Fixer Upper.
 I will take up my sketch book
 and draw ideas and some thoughts.
As one stroke leads to another,
 I will put color to my world 
like I did on this heart keepsake box from the past.
Putting love into the ideas.
I hope to be inspired by
all I see on my weekend journey!
Finding Inspiration
 one day at a time!

I've given my creativity the time to reflect and redirect.
So now I'm giving my muse a treat
in all the joy I'll see this weekend.

Where do you find inspiration?

 Far or close by?
 Within your thoughts, music and heart?

Wishing you joy!

Have a great weekend.
I won't be back around till next week.
Can't wait to share all about
my trip to 
The Silo's from Fixer Upper on HGTV.
