Where do you find inspiration? 

I thought I was dead in the water...(wish I had a dead fish to show ya), 
couldn't seem to find
my momentum to create.  It's probably like, how writers feel
when they have writers block.
I felt like the pull of the planets were fighting with the tides.
I was giving up, today.
As I stepped through the door of my work space, I turned and glanced
back at all my stuff, and cursed myself!

Inspiration was everywhere...and I mean everywhere!
I didn't have to sculpt, or paint.
I didn't even have to clean up to find my space.
Inspiration was jumping out at me.
here we go!

 texture with textiles! 

 vintage memories!

How could I not find inspiration here?
I'm an idiot sometimes! 
It's as big as the nose on my face!
Not seeing the forest...
you get where I'm going!
Everywhere you look, there's inspiration.
The Sun, the Moon, the Stars!
The smell of fresh brewed coffee, 
fried chicken,
speaking of which,

I did sculpt these!
Chicken feet!
Which lead me to another inspiration today.
I made Chicken Soup!

What inspired you today?

Be well

Fabulous post, Lisa! I have one of those paper mache mannis and was looking up at it this weekend thinking someday I have to do something with it.

I think when we "force" ourselves to create it does not come to us. I felt like that with a project I started yesterday so put it aside and today I made a tote out of a sweater from a tutorial I found on Pinterest. Took me a little over an hour, it went so quickly!!

Love the chicken feet!!!!

the feet are too cute! When I'm uninspired and usually go clean the fridge or bathroom...then BAM! enough of that! and suddenly something comes to me, phew just in time, I hate cleaning!lol:)

That was an awesome post. For me it's seldom a lack of inspiration as it is a lack of focus. I get too many ideas and end up doing none of them!

The chicken feet? Genius.

You are soooo right ! For the time being, my inspiration comes from what I see on the internet, thanks to so many blogs and forums !!!

Chicken feet! LOL! I love them. And some days, I just sit and stare at my crap...I mean art supplies. It's the same with writing...I just stare at the same two sentences. I think we're filling up our creative buckets. That's my story and I am sticking to it! xox
