Got Inspiration?


I believe I'm on inspiration overload. I've been lucky enough to find so much great inspiration lately and I wanted to share some with you. All of the books below are really top notch, crammed full of the most creative ideas. As usual I'm late to the party and just recently got my copies of Autumn Leaves Foof-a-life and Somerset Life but in case there a few of you like me, who haven't bought them yet, I thought I would sing their praises for you. As for Somerset Holidays, I believe I'm ahead of the curve on this one as it just hit bookshelves. I managed to snag one at Michael's last week with a 50% off coupon. Go ahead. Envy me.

Now I need to choose a project and get started but I find that to be the really difficult part as I want to try it all! I've been gathering Halloween materials so I'm hopeful I can settle on a project soon.

  1. Got my Foof A Life over the summer, and I am totally envying your 50% off at Michaels. Our closest is an hour away, so I never get the coupons in the paper anymore. Oh, well, probably all for the best! Hope you make that lovely banner!

  2. I can just imagine all the inspiration !! I just read about "Seasons of Cannon Falls" on one blog & decided a trip to Chapters tonight is on the agenda, and now that I've seen the front cover of Somerset Holidays I need to go over and look for sure! :-} Looking forward to seeing which project you decided on :-}
    great post Jen.

  3. I've never seen a copy of Somerset Life and I keep hearing about it. I need to see about finding an issue!
    I try to shop at Michaels only on the 50% off days. We have one just about 15 minutes from us, now. Just opened recently and I'm loving it.

    The favors for the wedding will be chocolate fall leaves. My daughter is taking a class, at Michaels to improve her chocolate molding technique.

    This is a great post, Jen!
