inspiration monday


my creative world is starting to look like forrest gump's box of chocolates......you never really know what you're gonna get. i have so many things that i'd like to do and learn, but i have no idea which one i'd like to do first. inspiration overload is alive and well in my studio these days, and when i look ahead, i see many different paths in front of me.....and they're all enticing me to go down them. i've always had a yearning for learning, i just need to figure out how to do it a little at a time instead of trying to do it all at once.
as well as hope that forrest hasn't eaten all of those chocolates yet....

You are absolutely right -- so many directions to choose from. Maybe I will just flip a coin.
Love your image - reminds me of those spinner things in a game.

Your posts always make me smile!

This is one of my favorite Blog posts of all time! I even read it three times before commenting. Sometimes there are so many things I want to do and to learn, that I feel so scattered...I can't do anything. It's hard to choose, when you have to choose for lack of time. Your doodle is my organizer for disorganized thoughts and dreams. Thank you very much!♥

Atleast there's never a dull moment!

Dawn said...

thank you for your incredibly sweet comment on my blog!

Claire M said...

Oh I can relate so well to what you are describing!! If only the days weren't longer and I had unlimited energy!!

Jennifer DeDonato said...

I totally know what you are saying. I have to rein myself in so much. Focus, focus, focus Jen!

Tara said...

Cool doodles! I know what you mean, my art room is a mess! A little of this and a little of that, but nothing of any value. Just fun!
Hugs,
Tara

Isn't it great? That there are so many things to learn and to do? I can never understand people who say "I was so bored I didn't know what to do".

PaperPumpkin said...

Have a wonderful, creative day today, lori! Enjoy your path, and thank you from the bottom of my little ♥.

Becky Shander said...

What an exciting time for you. All of this creative energy will no doubt lead you towards many new and wonderful discoveries. Enjoy!

Carmen said...

Love this! Options rock!

Jancalligrapher said...

I love the directional arrows and the artwork is SO cute. It says it all. Where is that lettering arrow, though. All you need is another direction from helpful friends, right??? HA HA

Lancerika said...

Thanks for posting your visual thoughts..
Lori,I feel lost most of the time!
is hard to figure out where to go, but sooner or later a little path will appear :)

rachel awes said...

Why am I not surprised that you've found yet another way to spotlight chocolate! You're my kinda gal :).
(and thank you for your prayers for Melyssa)
