Inspiration Sunday - April 1

Five things that are inspiring me right now:

First, the Purple Mailbox, a blog full of great projects, lots of creativity, and I just adore the personality. I also like that Ashli shows the steps from start-to-finish, including the things that don't quite work out and how she gets around those. Click right here to spend some time flipping through the last several posts and get inspired.

Another blog that's really inspiring me right now is Live.Teach.Create. You can tell Jennifer loves what she's doing and has a lot of creativity to share. I'm looking forward to what she does next!

Over at A Beautiful Mess, there's a tutorial about a great little notebook to make, using a magazine page as the cover. Check that out here. Nifty, no? And it doesn't look like it would be difficult or time-consuming. That's the kind of projects I like best. :)

This layout at Just Me and My Little World is so lovely, so adorable. I just want to get out supplies and scraplift it! The colors and grid design and all the little details work so well together!

And last, I spent a few minutes searching for videos about how to use Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Picket Fence. I got a bottle from my little Mommy for Christmas, and I'm eager to play with it, but I didn't know where to start. I watched this video by the man himself, and wow! I not only can't wait to get busy with the bottle of stain I already have, I want to buy more. (That's the idea, right??)

So thankful for the wealth of inspiration so readily available to me every day. I hope you're inspired to create something, too.
