Inspiration

Our mommy chose the May challenge topic for the Blogging Business Artisans which is to incorporate your favorite inspiration into the project of your choice.  Well, since we are her inspiration we thought we'd show you how we inspire her.  So many times we find her just staring at a pile of beads like this...
We can tell when she's got no crafty ideas happening so it's our job to help her out.  Can you tell what I'm trying to inspire?
My big, round blue eyes inspired these earrings (and yes, that's my sisfur Sadie's big head in the photo)...
Deb from Storybeader made Mommy a journal that she uses to put ideas in for her BeadedTail shop too.  Of course you can see that once again, we're there to inspire her...
She's not very good at drawing but when she does think of ideas she does her best to put them in the journal...
And eventually she's even able to make those ideas come to life like these earrings...
Again, notice they are blue like my pretty eyes!  Anyway, hope you enjoyed a glimpse of how we inspire Mommy's creations and of course her entire shop was inspired by the desire to help animals since she donates the proceeds to animal charities.  

What inspires you?

Enjoy your day!
Angel

We can definitely see how you inspired those earrings, Angel.
We aren't sure if and how we inspire Mommy, actually. Oh, does pointing out dirty ceiling fans count as inspiration? MOL.

Marg said...

We just think it is so terrific that Mommy donates some of her sale money to shelters etc. And Angel, good job giving the Mom some inspirations. Well done. Hope all of you have a super day.

Wow! Your mommy is so smart. I just sit and stare at the beads and hope they wrap themselves. That does not really work.

What are drawing plans for, but your eyes only? I got it, and I think the earrings are gorgeous! I Love lampwork:)

Hot Rocks said...

You are all such a wonderful inspiration for Mommy and her beautiful work! I get inspired from the world around me, whether it is nature, a shop window display, fashion, photos in a magazine etc. Inspiration is always around us, we just have to open our eyes!

How awesome that you provide such great inspiration for your Mommy! Someone has to do it, right? I love the journal from Deb, too. Keeping track of those brainstorms is so important.

Lin said...

I can see how your eyes inspired those pieces!! Sooooo pretty. :)

I get inspired when I see something silly or my family says something weird. I love to write about the weird stuff of life that nobody else really notices.

We would have to say that your Mom inspires us with her kindness to animal charities. That last pair of earrings are just so nice. We think your Mom would be lost without all the help and inspiration you all give her.

I'm so glad that your mommy gets to use the journal for her inspiration. Blue eyes?! I think that is unusual for a kitty. I can see why you are so inspiring! {:-D
