You Are Going to Love This

Oh my stars,  lots of inspiration for today.

I have a stack of projects that I am working on right now. Yet, there is always room for more inspiration.

Sewing scarves, and designing Christmas ornaments. Bee in My Bonnet surely stole my heart.

Stamping, stamping, stamping ribbons for Christmas. A Little Sweetness is filled with inspirations.

In between I have been reading stacks of books on fabric, patterns and quilting.  I discovered Nana Company in the fabric neighborhoods of the Land of Blog.

No project is ever too big to tackle, when you do a little bit at a time.

I found an amazing photographer in the magazine Mollie Makes.  I thought you would love her too. I have two of her books and they are filled with dreams.

Her name is Pia Jane Bijkerk.  I just received her book Paris Made By Hand.

This book is surely going to steal your heart. You can read all about her and her amazing work  on her blog.

In it she photographs wonderful shops in Paris.  I have her book on Amsterdam too.  Her latest book is called My Heart Wanders.  Her photography is gorgeous.

Kim Klassen is writing about dreams on her post.  I took away dreamy thoughts, a new texture, a how-to video, and a new song.

This week's Texture Tuesday's theme is The Number Two eDition.  I used Kim's Life is Good texture.  Several layers of soft light and played with the Gradient Map to adjust the shading a bit.

A garden statue at Tower Hill Botanical Gardens.

Kris from Kristopher K is one of my all time favorite designers on Spoonflower.  I learn so much from her, and she lives in dreamy Australia.  Her latest post is a "No Sew" Christmas Ornament Tutorial.

I love this song, it's called See The Good.

It's always so fun to juggle many inspirations all at once. It helps me to see just the good things that are all around me.

Wishing you the loveliest Monday.  I hope that you enjoyed your clicks and you put some inspiration in your pocket to last all day.

Today is Mosaic Monday, and I am sure that Mary from Dear Little Red House has loads of Monday inspirations.

You're so clever! When one of the elements in your photography leaps or somersaults from the page, I get a very goofy grin on my face. Have a fun week!

What a fun post, Karen! Love all the pictures and the music. And who's the cleverest girl of all??? YOU!

Yes, I'm ready to go move to NH with you. Mr. Magpie, too. I would also love to move to Martha's Vineyard if only I had a trillion dollars! ;-)
