Inspirations And Delights

Mixed Media Art

A dab of paint here…
A mark of pencil there…
A stencil, a stamp and an image transfer…
A mixed media art journal is filled with
Layers and layers of insight and revalation!

Nancy – Blueberry Buttermilk Muffins

Blueberry Buttermilk Muffins

I have a saying in my house:
Blueberries make everything better!
Improve your day with Nancy’s delectable
Blueberry Buttermilk Muffins!

Debbie – Summer Tree

Summer Tree

Decorated tree in your home all year long?
Debbie Dabble shows us how it’s done!
Each season she decorates the tree in her craft room –
Her pretty in pink Summer tree is a Victorian delight!

Music To Inspire You
Welcome To
Music Moves Me!

This week, our Spotlight Dancer invited us to take our favorite Artists from the 80s/90s and share their lesser known tunes. My tune for the week is an acoustic version of No Surrender from Bruce Springsteen’s album, Born In The USA – released on June 4, 1984. Enjoy!

No Surrender – Bruce Springsteen

Have an amazing week!

Inspire Me Monday #225 – Week Of April 24, 2016

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
