Inspiration Boards Display Lovely Gifts...

My Muse is coming back to me. She is getting very creative. She read the comments and suggestions you wonderful bloggers left for us. So here are some creative one of a kind cards I have been fortunate to be given by very wonderful friends. We put them on display in the sewing room. Now that is fuel for our creative endeavors.

Now we didn't stop with the cards. I love all the wonderful gifts I have received from my blogger community friends. So I removed all the magazine clippings and such from my framed inspiration boards. I have two of these in my sewing room. I just love them. It was a project I did several years ago. Next came the display of numerous items. Many of you will recognize the things you have made for me. I love to have them out in the open where I can see them so this is perfect. I filled both frames.




In trying to keep it uncluttered I have moved a few things around since this photo. Thank you each and every one of you talented and generous friends. I adore all of my special treasures. Now I am surrounded with them as opposed to having them in a cabinet where I could only see one or two at a time.


Now my Muse and I are truly inspired. Since I filled these frames I have already completed several UFOs and gathered a few others to work on. Sometimes I make myself finish some projects before I allow myself to begin new ones.

Thank you everyone. Thank you Muse for coming back and not leaving me for too long.

If you are looking for me...I shall be in the studio working on lots of creative endeavors.

P.S. The sun is shining today...Hooray! It is still winter cold but at least the sun is shining.

  16. What treasures you have and I love how you display them all so beautifully. Thanks for your visit and I am sad to say the bears are still here. One right outside my window two nights ago. A little to close for comfort. Teddy can sense them before I see them and he barks and barks. Hope they move on soon. LOL

  18. I love how you are displaying your cards and gifts! Beautiful where you can see them. I'm happy this has helped you get your Muse back. However, I understand how that happens and this past winter and this very wet spring has challenged mine as well. We are human and these constants can certainly play havoc with our creative spirits. Let's kick 'em to the curb! Thoughts of you always......Marilyn xxoo

  19. So glad your Muse came back and is right where she ought to be.
    I am always bothered when I lose mine - and I think it might be why I keep so many hobbies going - I am usually hopeful that at least one will call out to me!
    You are a wonderful creative person Sherry, and I don't believe your Muse will ever leave you - she may just lie down from time to time to let you look around for a while...
