inSpire Me.

Need a little bit of Monday morning inspiration? I know I do.

I’m starting my day with a blank canvas, or two, or ten.

Literally.

I will be splashing color on mini canvases, art journal pages, tags, and cards.

If I DARE to want less WINTER and more SPRING, I’m gonna have to bring it - to my craft table.

Filling Up the Day

Coffee, first and then Morning Pages.

As I write I’m listening to Sara Bareilles sing If I Dare and Brave.

I’m thinking about Amy Sherald’s “I’m a painter…” quote and her portrait art.

Trust me, you’ll want to Google: Amy Sherald, Michelle Obama, and Parker Curry. Be inspired.

...hope that if we work hard enough and believe in ourselves, we can be whatever we dream...
— Michelle Obama

“I want to see you be brave…”

If I dare to ask it, then I dare it to be true
If I dare to risk it, then I know that I’m willing to
If I dare to want this, to want more than I have
Then I dare to believe I’ll have it in the end.

On my craft (and reading) tables…

As I wait for warm sunny days filled with garden blooms, I need floral fabrics to inspire my creativity. Here are some collections to spark ideas for painting and sewing.

I also included books by wise women. Their words encourage me to be BECOME BRAVE and DARE GREATLY.

In the studio, I’ll start the week playing with watercolor and acrylic paints, floral stamp sets, word dies and embossing powder. Let’s see where the frivolity leads me on watercolor paper, mini canvases and art journal pages. What stories will the colors help me tell? What stitching projects will follow?

HOPE you’re inspired to Create inCourage and inJOY with me.
