I wanted to be Cindy Lauper, Punky Brewster, and Madonna in the 80s when I was 8, 9, 10, 11 years old. Today I realize the common denominator: all women, creative pioneers, individualists, and inspirationalists. This is who I wanted to be and this is who I’m still weaving through my life, today. I wanted to be creative, and I wanted to make a difference. And I wanted to dress with sass. I am so inspired by this reminder to remember who we wanted to be.

Inspired by a day I shared with the mega talented Vivienne McMaster. I’ve been a huge fan of her work for a long, long time. She sees things in such vibrant, quirky ways. Love, love. I especially love this post. I think she is brilliant. Here’s a peek at a few more shots that she took during our day (she made me look so lovely!)
I am inspired that my parents would have a vision for an old shed in their backyard as a clubhouse for True and his little buddies. How crazy cute is this? INPSIRED! When it’s all done, I’ll share before and after shots….
I’m inspired by all the hearts that have been popping up in my world. There’s been a ton of synchrociities happening around here and I know it has something to do with these hearts. It must. I made this page recently to round em up in a collection. LOVE.
This simple gadget has changed my life (and is helping keep trackpad arthritis at bay). Love it and cannot believe I’ve waited this long to get one.
Other inspirations that have caught my eye lately:
She and all her creativity just moved to Portland. How lucky am I? I gonna try and convince her to be my friend. Oh yes, yes I am.
Her book just released and I’m waiting for it to arrive. I went to college with Alena and she was a HUGE inspiration to me many years ago when I began to jump into creative biz. She was one of the people who helped answer my million questions. I studied her website, how she did things, how she packaged her stuff. She shared all that practical information with me (so generously) and she inspired me on the creative front, too, and even asked me if I would contribute a couple of projects to her first book (which I did, in 2006 when I was a major newbie to creative life). Old friends…and it’s been so fun to watch her move along in her creativity and crazy awesome success all of these years. GO ALENA!
I love and admire her. Here is one of the many reasons why.
