It was a tough week. One big project keeps me getting up early and coming home late. Stumped and confused. Going to B&N after work (on my Friday which is Saturday) looking to be inspired is a ritual. I can fall into the magazine section and get lost for hours, soaking up so many ideas, colors, that my brain feels on the point of explosion. Marie Claire Idees magazine was out but I resisted buying it. Carried a stack of magazines to purchase around the store. Martha Stewart's new wedding magazine was full of visual treats, HOW came home with me. A Chocolate magazine full of recipes for the holidays. Then I came across Nancy Crow's new quilting book ... I had to have it. Gave the magazines one more look through, noted stuff I wanted to remember and put most of the them back.
My inspiration comes and goes. There are times when big ideas brew in my head constantly and times like now, when my brain feels like a blistering desert, barren of any visual living things.
