Ahhh, the weekend

I am so excited the weekend is finally here! Mr. R and I are going to the desert. I can't wait to wake up at the crack of dawn to be inspired by the austerity of the landscape.

Work In Progress

This weeks WIP (Work In Progress) is for my favorite little girl, but don't worry. I am also going to have it available in my Etsy shop so you can have your very own and I am even extending the available sizes! I choose to make this coat for Annika because it reflects her adventurous, fun loving personality. Not to mentions it is just super duper CUTE!

The pattern is by another extremely talented Etsy seller, Whole Grain Baby. I just can not get enough of her designs. She also did the pattern for this dress and this dress in my shop. I am excited to get moving on this coat. I will be hitting the fabric shop tomorrow. I am thinking blues, greens, and pinks.

What inspires you?

Lately I have been doing a lot of thinking about how I get inspired. At first I thought it was travel, people, and wine. Then as I really started to think about it, what really gets my creative juices flowing or should I say gushing is ...... A CLEAN DESK!

I am not one of those clean freak type, who really enjoys cleaning and the smell of pine sol. Mark can attest to that. No, I am talking more about a blank slate. A place just begging to be cluttered with all of your creations and ideas. The desk, it is calling to you, "come sit at me create something new and exciting."
