Drawing inspiration

This year my overriding goal is to spend more time on things. Mainly the design process. I’ve been thinking these past few days about a subject. Something to provide a framework for my thoughts.

Yesterday I revisited Alison’s and Hilary’s cotton ribbons; which led me, via google to LINNET. It was like walking into the garden of eden. Page after page of pure beauty. And looking for books today I came across Print and Pattern’s lists where I found Simple and Natural: Petit Pattern Book.


The thoughts that had been simmering over the past few days knitted together. The photos I’d printed out yesterday matched so beautifully with flowers from the garden – I am now most definitely ready to find some wall and get an inspiration board up.


My first theme; natural and delicate.

With my fresh, clean new diary and sketchbook in hand I am very excited about the coming year.

    ok now I feel pretty damn inspired by this entry. The photos are just what I like and maybe one day soon I’ll get around to making my own inspiration board.

    The beginning of a fresh new year is so exciting when it comes to creativity. I discovered LINNET a couple of years ago and often pop back to drool. Oddly enough I’ve never ordered anything from there.
    Still on the lookout for a frame for the gorgeous Laundery print you sent me. Once framed I’ll do a little post about it with a link.
    Wishing you and your family a creative and fun filled year.
