inspiration monday


i think it's really important (really important!) to take 
a creative break every now and then.....
even when that means leaving your artist space blank for a short time.






because when you're ready to come back......  








inspiration will show you the way.
(along with some help from your heart)

(you probably knew i was going to say that, didn't you....)







and the best part is once you've returned.......







your artist space will be so much sunnier....... 







and a lot more colorful than it was before you left!

(*so good to be back!!*)

derwent inktense pencils, graphite pencils, and a white chalk pencil}

Oh yay! Nice to see you back. I think the happiest bloggers are the ones who take a break -- everyone should get away from the computer and go live life. That's how we get inspired!

I just LOVE this! I missed your posts, too. You inspire me to try to be more creative and I really need to try harder! I have that same walls book and never would have thought of what you just did... very insightful. You see things in those pages that no one else can. Glad you're back from your break. I look forward to seeing what else you come up with. :D
