Pom Pom Nom Nom

This weeks obsession is all about pom poms. My camera is broken, so I can't share with you the little creatures that I've been working on. Let's just say I'm absolutely smitten. Here are some of my favorites from the wide world web...

Past Inspiration

While it's no secret that I've been quiet, contemplative, a little down and searching. I've shied away from sources of inspiration, not wanting to be distracted or overwhelmed. It hasn't really helped. The picture above reminds me of my youth, in our house on the eastside of town, how the sun would glow through my window at dusk. It came to me when this song played on pandora; 


and the childhood memories came flooding back and it felt good. I began to look for more things that would bring me back to that place. That place where I was so ready to take on the world, leave my mark and enjoy life. I have a lot of time to spend on my computer, while job hunting and resume perfecting..and so the search has begun for all these little tidbits that are helping me feel like me again. This one almost knocked me out of my chair;

This one I found while trolling for Pinterest. 
A website that lets you 'pin' things to it's virtual boards..I'm loving ALL THE COOL STUFF! 

and of course, if I'm talking about inspiration..I have to give shouts out to my friends and family. The ones who have put up with my wierdness, my me-ness. and a Special shout out and a huge Huzzah to Melissa Abercrombie! She was recently interviewed and featured on the Craft blog;
I have had the great honor of getting to know Melissa, having done a few dozen shows with her over the past few years. This right here is a genuine person. She is awesome and so is her work!! 
Thank you for the inspiration Mel!!
