The one big advantage of being back at work is that I'm able to spend more time online and I'm loving having to time to trawl round the net being inspired by all the creativity out there. It's really making me feel energised and creative myself too and I have all sorts of ideas for things I want to do. The only problem is finding the time and energy to do them!
I particularly want to thank everybody who has left comments on my previous posts - every one of you inspires me to create and share with you what I'm doing, whether I'm working out my own designs or stitching someone else's. Your comments and feedback are always constructive and inspire me to do more and better.
And I also need to thank Yoyo who also tagged me with the Fabulous Blog award. I should perhaps be listing 5 of my favourite things and tagging others, but I'm going to tie it in with what I'm writing about inspiration here.
My original plan was to share a list of links of the things I've been finding inspitational since I returned to work as I'd been finding the internet itself so inspirational and turning up website gems at a rate I could hardly keep up with. Unfortunately, a lot of these websites seem to fade from my mind as quickly as I find them, so my list is never the same one day to the next. And then, of course, it also varies depending on my mood and different things inspire me for different reasons.
So maybe I should post and note my inspiration more regularly for my own benefit as well as to share. How about 6 things every week?
Anyone care to join me and spread a little inspiration?
Here's my first list.
Vonna - courage in adversity. I hadn't meant to blog today, but then I read her blog.
This post from Hohla at http://saolya.blogspot.com/, particularly her beautiful photos and stitching!
Lucy at Attic24 - blog and flickr - all that yarn and colour - makes me want to go home and fill my house with crochet!
Flickr where you can find amazing photos of almost anything.
Slightly more frivolous this one perhaps, but this post from Isabelle Vautier has me dancing round the room cheering - I definately don't want to forget about it!
