What Inspires You...
What is it that makes you sew, stitch, hook or punch?
What makes you create?
Is it books, old magazines, tv or just the "need" to to do?
For me...I get my inspiration from...don't laugh...
from the old Little House on the Prairie re-runs.
I really like that period.
Lee gets his inspiration for furniture from watching Bonanza..go figure!
However, we both will grab the old issues of Country Living. These are the
really old issues...ya know when it was more than just hanging a picture
of a cow on a wall and calling that country/primitive.
I find myself pouring over Jill Peterson's and Judy Condon's books also.
Is it the season that inspires you? We all know how much fun it is to start the
decorating season!! For me that runs from Sept-Dec. I love the old corn
stalks, pumpkins, mums and witches! And then we run into Christmas!
Do you create from a pattern or from you heart? I do a little of each. For me it's
a lot easier with a pattern...remember I can't draw!!
I was just wondering what it is that makes you create what you do?
Have a blessed day...and keep creating.
