great inspiration…


my work week is well under way and like many of you, i wonder where the time goes?  all of my best intentions to do something fun and creative often get overloaded with other to-do’s – i’m sure you know the feeling too…

no doubt there are lots of other creative people out there where we can take a break if only to find inspiration (thank you pinterest).  lucky for me a couple of them happen to be part of my team, and have shared some cool project tutorials recently.  so today i just wanted to do a shout out and share the links for you to check out.

paula cheney did an awesome tutorial showing a layout using new stencils, inks, and more…
richele christensen made a journal out of tags with texture fades, distress paint, and markers…

so even though you may be having a busy week too, i hope you take a little breather for some great inspiration.  enjoy today…t!m
