{thanks to YOU}

I {like most} have had a crazy busy week...all the while craving to "CREATE". I am overwhelmed with current whims {that my husband graciously supports}. This isn't a new facination with me, but definitely a stronger motivation. I wondered what has propelled this...and then I thought of YOU.
My first thanks desearvingly goes to one of my best friends, Kirsten of SimplyGrove. Her friendship, neverending encouragement and decor genius has inspired me for years. But, in all was because of HER that I started a blog. "A great way to keep in touch with the distance between us." And...because of her, I was introduced to so many other wonderful inspirations!

{My lovely sister, Amber. Above is the wedding gift she made my husband and I!}

{As long as I've know Jennifer from A Merry Mishap, I have been in awe. Her talent is incredible. Above is a sample of her work....a pillow that I l-o-v-e.}
Below are bloggers that I have since met {in this never ending blogoshere} and admire greatly! Their creations are delightful!

{The amazing photography above --and so much more-- is by Mrs. French of Bliss. Check out her shop here! --and don't be shocked if you receive some of her work for I'm in LOVE with the pictures.}

{The above....sigh!...are created by Little ByRD. They are positively delightful, as are the rest of her creations!}

{Krissy from Paper Schmaper must lead the most facinating life! Her attention to paper detail is amazing. Her blog features incredible works of art...even somewhat unbelievable and her shop features not only the adorable pieces above, but so much more!

{These journals above -- or as I like to call them "Skip Along Books" -- are darling. Julia from Red Otter offers great detail on each of her pieces. Check out more here!}

Most of the people mentioned, know each other...but, for my dear friends and family that haven't checked out the above inspirations: this weekend is a perfect time! You will be filled with delight!
Happy "creative" weekend!!
