Do you know where Inspiration Lives?
I don't know about you, but often what I need is right under my nose. Take my book for example. I wrote is as a Christmas "DIY" book. Make beautiful ornaments from ordinary card stock.
That is just the beginning of the story. After Christmas I decided to revisit the book and re-release it as a "Make your everyday day life more beautiful" book hoping to inspire my readers to make the pretty things in the book to enhance their surroundings.
Guess who was inspired?
Me, Yes that's right me!
Talk about everything you need being right under your nose.
When I decided to review the book for re-release I went back in to the content and started to play with the projects. I got to the flowers and something unexpected happened. I started making flowers and they kept getting bigger and bigger…so now I have 2 four foot flowers in my house along with so many others…we barely have room to sit anywhere!
So all this to say, when someone tells you you have everything you need right under your nose, they just might be right. In fact I am going out on a limb and saying they are right!
And one more thing…I was a painter not a sculptor, in fact in my mind sculpture took up space and block the view to looking at a beautiful painting!
My final thought? Open your mind, check out what is right there, under your nose. Take "it" what ever that might be and carry "it" with you and use "it"…you will be so happy you did!
Make today your best day ever!
So happy you stopped by today and grateful for your thoughts!
