the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.
“Helen had one of her flashes of inspiration”
a sudden brilliant or timely idea,
I think we all have a tendency to get ‘stuck’ or in a ‘rut’ as crafters and also in our busy lives. I know I do and how do you get out of it? I find I look for “INSPIRATION”, something that interests me, or gets my creativeness flowing again!! I seem to find it everywhere; in my daily life, my sons, family, home, garden, magazines, travels, it’s all around us if we look…… I use Pinterest and Google also which gives you lots of ideas………………..
I haven’t really felt very inspired by much since my mum and stepdad, both passed away in 2017. Also breaking my arm the same year in the middle of losing them didn’t help much either. As I couldn’t do anything for quite a while, I lost interest in my garden, some of my craft, work, etc.
Sometimes it is hard to get back into life and/or to find inspiration! I can’t get motivated sometimes and I feel like doing nothing. I think we all get like that……………. I have started making my Journal for my OLW Journey in 2020 to play in. This is the start of my INSPIRATION and my journey……………….
I want to create and craft more, make journals and scrapbook, take more photos and document our life. I have a bit of catching up to do; also to enjoy my garden again and just get out there, live and be inspired again!
“INSPIRATION IS EVERYWHERE!”
My favourite words to find my INSPIRATION would be
CREATE- DOCUMENT-CAPTURE I would say that is because I am a scrapbooker and a memory keeper………………. I take notice of the ‘little things’ in our daily life that we often miss……………
I put together a bit of a list that might help you also find INSPIRATION if you are looking for it. I intend to be doing these things in 2020 🙂

2020 is going to be the year I get my INSPIRATION back on track.
I hope I may have you a bit interested you in finding a word that feels right for you and play along with me, for the 12 months. I will be posting about it throughout 2020 and it will be fun, I am sure.
I know I can use a bit more “INSPIRATION” in my life and I hope you can too.
Wishing you all a safe and happy start to 2020. See you then
