i've been as busy as a bee, soaking up as much of the burgeoning spring season as i can and celebrating it! it's funny really, because it seems like just last week that i was quietly pining for the snow mounds to melt and the skies to turn blue...and all of a sudden, my wish came true!
plenty of new items have been added to the shop to help you bring some spring sparkle to your home this season. i've been glittering eggs and ornaments, and birthday party hats are getting hot again as well! i attribute my recent 'spring' in creativity to the return of the sun. i feel like i have a million ideas for new pieces and product lines, but just not enough hours in the day. so, i make certain to have my sketch journal attached to my person as much as possible so that i can jot down ideas or sketch out possible designs.
having a smart phone handy is awfully nice too, since i can take pictures of nearly anything that inspires me (like the crocuses that jack and i snapped above when out on our walk this afternoon), but my impulse is usually to reach for a pencil and my pad before reaching into my pocket to grab my camera phone...i swear there is something inside me that makes me want to resist actually using technology in my day to day. i mean, i'm aware of all the great apps and programs and websites and gadgets out there that could help me streamline my business and my creative process, but i spend my days imagining the past and trying to replicate it in the present...sometimes it just doesn't jive, you know? lol...
what i post on tumblr is what makes me smile, giggle, gasp, think...its all the stuff that sometimes isn't fit to post here...lol.
i hope you are all finding ways to welcome spring into your lives...may you feel refreshed and invigorated!
