Inspiration is never far....

Hats, felted items and more made from my imagination.....I'd say color is a main inspiring source.

Things I am inspired by, color, friends, family, nature,tools, magazines, texture, materials.

Yarns I have made using the above principals...

Inspiration has never been a problem for me. I'm constantly finding it, sometimes in surprising places. Whether it be lichen on a rock....or colors of some dirty clothes mashed in a pile. It's there. Sometimes I wish I wasn't bombarded with so many ideas. Over time though, I've learned to write them down and pick which are best. The good thing I am also gifted with the heavy urge to create. Imagination plus motivation is a good thing! People ask me, when did you have time to do this? It's because that's pretty much all I do: make stuff!

It's sometimes funny where inspiration, then ideas stem from. I see now that I've always had the eyes of an artist. At times I wish I wasn't so aware. I notice the bad as well as the good. Like the house on the corner that's slowly rotting into nothing. Why do people neglect neat old houses? Things like that get to me. I try to filter and see the pretty, the odd and quirky.
