This is what I wrote in my very first blog post, June 2011:
As a jewelry artist, my designs are influenced by nature and the aspects of my daily life. The journeys I have taken, places I have visited, and the colors and texture of the landscape all inspire my creativity. It is a creative world, the one I live in. Through this blog, you will find insight into the thoughts and inspirations that influence my creativity. It is a fun, artistic, colorful, sometimes comical and always adventurous place to be! Welcome.
Through blogging, I have had the opportunity to connect with other creative types;
to learn, share and be inspired by one another.
A few of the amazingly talented artists who inspire me!
Some of the essential tools that I keep close by are inspiring references such as books and magazines. I also always have a note book to jot down ideas and a sketch book with colored pencils to help bring those ideas to life! So to share a little of my creative process, I am giving away a large sketch book, a set of Crayola colored pencils, a notebook that will be personalized with your initial along with the Fall issue of Jewelry Stringing magazine (one of my favorite resources for inspiration).
If you would like to win, leave a comment telling me how you document the moments and ideas that inspire you. You also must be a follower to be eligible to win. The winner will be chosen Wednesday morning, October 3rd.
