Got Inspiration?




Fall has always been a season of creativity for me.  Maybe it's the cooler air or getting back into a routine after the fluidity of long summer days.  Lately I've been feeling a familiar creative bubbling inside and the need to plan projects for the winter.   It's almost an urge to "gather" in preparation for the bitter cold and I wonder if maybe I was a squirrel in my previous life.  (Actually, I'm pretty sure I was a mule because I'm tend to carry huge totes full of "just in case" stuff).

But I digress.


When I get these stirrings, there are a couple of websites I go to for inspiration and materials.

Here are two that I particularly like:


Artellaland is the brainchild of Marney Makridakis, herself a creative dynamo and wildly fun redhead.   If you sign up for their affordable memberships, you'll have access to loads of creative offerings and many free things.  I have purchased three or four Artellaland ebooks and have loved every one.  Also, if you buy an ebook, they have a book share program where you can share it with a couple of friends for free.  Hey, remember me if you do this.


  

Violette's Folk Art is a website that is a joy just to open.  It is whimsical and alive with color.  Since I am an art journal junkie, I find loads of inspiration from her creative journaling ideas.   I haven't yet tried any of her workshops or online classes, but I plan to one day.  I've heard positive reviews.


I can lose an entire afternoon poking around in either of these websites, and I'm betting you will too!

Where do you go for inspiration?

Lately I've been pondering my feet. Don't ask. I see you on Jules blog and thought I would finally stop in. Cause I have time, otherwise I would be pondering my feet.

I like messy creatives!
