Inspire me Thursday


Notebook
I love my Moleskins, I love them soooooo much! This entry was from 01.09.08 but I just tried my date stamp for the first time and got the digits mixed up, so it says the 10th!
I am always inspired by flowers, their smells, shapes and colours. Most of my doodles are of flowers and I must have near 5000 pics on my computer too. It was only when I completed this page I realised I could be using my own images not ones found in magazines. But it was a great starting point and as always an inspiring page to go back to.


During my mamouth clear out I decided that I was going to get rid of all the threads I have accumulated over the years. I filled a bag and sought out a new home for them. Then the next morning I realised that I wasn't quite ready to pass them on and decided to use them for something fun, and bird related, of course. So here is a very amature piece of embroidery. I have had so much fun with this so far, who knows how long it will take me to finish!



I have been doing a great selection of things today, bits of graphic work, making some jewellery and some photography. Some days I like having a mixture of things to work on, and today was one of those days. I took some new photos of some of my current etsy stock, just to give them a lift. And I worked on some new pieces which I'll be listing in the shop tomorrow, so check by for a peek.

Made me smile! I have over 5000 photos on my computer too and I've got to do something about them. I also have a lot of magazines I've saved over the years and I've got to do something with those too! I really do like your bird. Hope you show it when it's finished.

I am in love with my sketch moleskine which is the first one I have ever owned. I was a bit disconcerted by the yellowish pages to start with but I am getting used to it now. I love the pages of yours. Lovely artwork. I am a great fan of flowers too. I also think the embroidery bird is great. Looking forward to seeing it progress. I wish I had time to get my embroidery silks and needlepoint wools out.....hmmm.
