I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Welcome to Inspire Me Monday – a place to share your creative inspirations, sharpen your creative vision, and showcase your creative talents!
I invite you to inspire others and nurture your creative spirit by joining our Creative Blog Hop! To participate, simply join my creative community (which now extends to Google Plus) and follow the guidelines at the end of this post!
What’s Inspiring You This Week?
A Few Of My Thoughts
Since I started Inspire Me Monday, I eagerly anticipate the arrival of each new week. Every Sunday, I spend a good part of the day revisiting all of the current week’s participants and pick a few to feature on the upcoming week’s posts. Each week, the task becomes more daunting as you continue to amaze me with your entries. Please take a few moments to visit and encourage one another throughout the week as you continue to share your inspiring quotes, essays, DIY projects, recipes, crafts, and art!
This month, be open to all of the creative opportunities that come your way! Step out of your comfort zone and say “yes” to things that stretch your mind and your imagination! You never know what great adventure you will find yourself on when you open yourself up to a new world of possibilities!
Have a wonderful week and a glorious March!
Highlights From Week 7
Carolyn at A Colorful Journey
Project: Thanks Mom – Art Journaling Using Masking Tape As Frame
Carolyn has done it again!
Last week she encouraged us to Embrace Opportunity –
And Failure – with a beautiful tag.
This week she has taken Art Journaling to a new level
By not only incorporating a creative technique into her book
But sharing a video as well!
Congratulations to this talented Somerset Studio Artist
Who graces us with her talents each week!
Lexi at The Newbie Crafter
Project: Martini Pin-Up
Okay, you be the judge.
I believe that Lexi is pulling our leg.
With a creation like this
I find it difficult to believe that she is
Truly the “Newbie” Crafter!
Look at her attention to details!
The beautiful and unusual color combination.
The lovely coloring.
Nope – I find it hard to believe that
Lexi is the “Newbie” Crafter.
But I do believe she’s a Talented One!
Katherine at Katherine’s Corner
Recipe: Breakfast Biscuits
I was raised to believe that
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
When it comes to breakfast,
I don’t want cereal.
I don’t want breakfast out of a box.
I want real, authentic food
Like Katherine makes!
Imagine waking up to the aroma of Katherine’s
Mouthwatering Breakfast Biscuits.
They look so delicious
They would rouse even the sleepiest of heads
From their beds!
Another recipe that I can’t wait to try is
Good Girl Gone Green’s Almond Cup Smoothies –
Made with Homemade Almond Butter!
Can you imagine how refreshing and healthy
A daily glass of this would be?
If you love these features – there are plenty more fabulous inspirations I’d love to share! Be sure to visit my talented friends and delight in their contributions at Inspire Me Monday – Week 8!
