What’s Inspiring You This Week?
This Week, I’m Inspired By…
Your Creative Projects!
Here are a few of my favorites:
I love Artist Trading Cards –
Artistic mixed-media masterpieces created in a 2 ½ x 3 ½ space –
So I was blown away by Okie Nurse’s Chunky ATC
Which she created out of a 2 x 4 piece of lumber.
You have to read her post to fully appreciate the
Craftsmanship that went into her creation –
Then, enjoy exploring this talented crafter’s site!
The Holocaust Museum Houston is currently collecting
1.5 Million Handmade Butterflies
From People All Over The World
For Their Spring 2014 Exhibit
As Part Of
I Never Saw Another Butterfly
To Commemorate the 1,500,000 Innocent Children
Who Perished in the Holocaust.
“The Innocence” is Watercolor Artist Jennifer McClean’s
Contribution to The Butterfly Project.
Won’t you consider being a part of this monumental event?
Rose is a Creative Italian blogger
Who shared this very special
Chocolate Cake with Oranges
To remind her of her childhood home!
You’ll have to translate her site from Italian to English
To get the full details but it’s worth the effort!
Have fun exploring Rose’s site!
The Redhead Riter
Project: Homemade Apple Sauce
Those are the words I’d use to describe
The Redhead Riter’s Homemade Apple Sauce!
Be sure to visit her site on a full stomach –
