Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer

  32. claudia says:

    THANKS for hosting.

  33. I know you are thinking of creativity and inspiring more in terms of crafts, cooking, etc., but I would like to inspire creativity and out of the box thinking with my words to help make the world a better place for animals, cats in particular.

    February is National Spay/Neuter Month and I am trying so hard to educate people outside of my cat niche on the facts about pet responsibility and spay/neuter – not only because it is healthier for your cat, but because it will help to decrease the staggering numbers of cats on the streets and in shelters. Please, inspire others with my message to help learn the facts!!

      Hi Deb,

      Thanks for sharing your post – animal causes are near and dear to my heart too and I have featured a number of animal related articles in the past at Inspire Me Monday – I truly do encourage creativity of all types here (you’d be more than welcome to share some of your awesome videos of your beautiful kitties as well!)

  34. so many great finds you have been inspired by!! thanks so much for including my art piece from diane’s post! 🙂

    Wonderful stuff here!! I will link up next week: with the holiday, my schedule is a bit different and I couldn’t get here early enough to link. But I love seeing all the creativity here! So glad you have this blog! 🙂

      Hope you are having a wonderful week Cyndi! I keep all of my parties open all week (even though they all have days in their names to make them easy to remember) – so even though the linky says Monday – feel free to stop by any time during the week that it is convenient for you to share! And, of course, drop by whenever you need an inspiration boost as people are always adding new and wonderful things (I always choose my features on Sunday so that I have the full week’s listing to pick from!)

  36. Well ~ I’m a day late, but LOVE all your Inspirations! Especially this week ~ I’ve been “absent” from blogging and so glad to be back!
