Jessica Sprague

I just signed up for Jessica Sprague's Inspiration Everywhere class. I also ordered her book Stories in Hand to use along with her class. I'm looking forward to this class as it has you look around you and find where you get your inspiration from. And, it's not just paper, you will be using music, art, etc. in finding your inspiration.

Sitting here on break at work, and feel so inspired to create but know that this feeling will pass by the time I get home knowing that the grocery store, cooking dinner and laundry is between me and the time I can create. Also, daylight savings time is over so it will be dark by the time I get to my scrapbook room. I am never very motivated when it is dark outside. I did find however, that making a list of what I want to create helps me accomplish more. I need to take a few minutes brainstorm what I want on that list.

Christmas is fast approaching and because of the current economic climate I am looking more towards "homemade" rather than store bought. I've had the idea in my head to make cookbooks for all my girls with our "family" recipes in them. I might expand that idea and create one for my son (the cook in the house) and my niece. I need to think about what I want the final look to be (something durable, but expandable).

I am also working on that library envelope book that I plan on giving my middle daughter for her birthday. Her birthday is 2 weeks before Christmas so I better get serious about it as well.

I also love the new 7gypsies photo trays. Thinking about doing something with those for my sisters.

Geez - I better stock up on Red Bull and get busy.
