Inspiration

They say the creative process is borne along on the wings of inspiration. Last week as I (Gerri) was designing a project for an upcoming workshop I felt like my wings of inspiration had suddenly been clipped. Thud! I was stuck; nothing worked right. It was time to walk away; take a break and feed the soul. Where does inspiration come from exactly? For me it's taking time to immerse myself in a favorite magazine or visit my favorite antique shop.



It can also come from the gentle comment of a friend, "that would be pretty if...", or simply the view from my kitchen window. Happily, the creative process has taken flight again. Who knows what may come of it?
