The New Year was welcomed in by father winter himself. What a great way to spend the New Year's weekend, watching the soft feathery flakes tumble to the ground. The wood burning stove warming my cottage, mulling spices simmering on the stove waifing up the most relaxing cinnamon smells imaginable. For me this was the best of welcomes to a new year. Here in California, my cottage is located at approx. 3200 ft, we may or may not get snow and when we do it only lasts for a couple of days to a week. This is my idea of being snowed in. This gave me some great time to catch up on some of my favorite blogs, email friends, and really reflect on the ideas that have been floating in my creative think tank.
For me, there are times when so many idea's race through my mind, I wish I had the time needed to make them all happen. My idea journal is becoming a greater source of comfort and inspiration, it comforts me because I know as long as I write things down or scribble a picture I won't forget and that inspires me.It inspires me to know that on the days when I feel my least creative, I can open my journal and put myself to work making those ideas a reality.
Like diamonds waiting to be found in the glistening snow, How will you find inspiration in this New 2011 Year? Whether your inspired to do the big or small, we offer our encouragement to follow your heart and dreams.
Have a great New Year, full of all things good.
