inspiration monday

every once in a while i come up with what i think is a really great idea......and i've decided that instead of trying to keep it stored in the archives of my memory banks, i'm going to start writing it down!  (seems like the perfect excuse to sit down and create a fun journal page......what could be more inspiring than to get out the microns, watercolor pencils.....and chocolate?!)

 here's a better look at a cute little tag i made using 
of my new rubber stamps!

hope your day is filled with great and inspiring ideas!!
journal page finished using micron pens, watercolor pencil, 4B graphite pencil, pan pastel, decorative paper, ribbon, great idea stamp

Absolutely a great idea. However, I have way too much cleaning up to do - to make way for the tree.
You really do come up with some terrific ideas.

your stamps look great.

OMG!! This is a challenge for me, because once i get chocolate, it's GONE, DOWN THE GULIVER, disappeared, hardly shared!! To last 30 minutes with my m&m's can only happen when I'm in the right mindset.....but hey, I'm up for the challenge!! Love your new stamp, Lori :D

That is a great idea! It makes me wonder about the first six great ideas! :)

It's so much fun getting to see all the creative ways you're using your new stamps.

I just ate a chocolate donut with crushed candy canes on top. GREAT idea! I will have to come back to get this stamp now! Another GREAT idea! Keep 'em comin' lori!

Great idea! Add a little whimsy and color and any idea sounds more interesting!! I like the great idea of chocolate!!

P.S. The stamp is cute and a great motivator for tracking those great ideas.

Mary said...

i have also decided to make a notebook for all "this is were I put it." i will put something away and say, "i will remember where i put it and don't." lol

Martha Lever said...

Yep, this is a great idea for sure!!!!! And such a cute Lori letter page!!!

Kim Hambric said...

Cute piece! Yes, this is a great idea. I tend to break up my chocolate breaks throughout the day. I no doubt spend far more than 30 minutes eatinc chocolate.

ballet news said...

You had my attention with the word chocolate ! But I have had a wisdom tooth out and can't eat a thing! Happy Christmas !!!

Sara said...

This is a genius idea, Lori! Do the other ideas involve chocolate as well?? I sure hope so :-)

So wonderful...chocolate is the best!

Jancalligrapher said...

Love your lettering as always, Lori. Chocolate gives you endorphins! Ahhh.

Kerri said...

i love the idea of setting aside 30 min a day for chocolate.

Jane Farr said...

This made me laugh out loud when I read it. (and all the chocolate fell out of mouth...)

Cynthia Schelzig,Cynnie said...

I think that is the best idea I have read all day...I think I will do just THAT!!!
