Welcome to my first post!

I am so excited that my blog is finally up! I hope I keep my readers happy with my posts and all of you gain inspiration for your own personal projects, either in work or play. As a designer, I find inspiration in so many things—from the simple things in nature to an antique hand-carved apron on a desk—all of these things at one time or another have shown up in my work. It's hard to pinpoint exactly when you will be inspired. That's why I always travel with a small sketchbook or camera. Of course, that doesn't mean you have carry one with you while on a power walk but throw a notebook or something to write on in your car next time you go to the park. Sometimes I'm most inspired while taking a walk and the ideas literally flow out so quickly that I can't wait to jot them down. Many of my best concepts have come to me while walking!

Saturday morning was my inspiration day of this past week. I started the day with a morning walk, ran the necessary errands and then spent some time in Barnes & Noble, just browsing in their art and design section. Then I finished the morning at Anthropologie, one of my favorite stores, for inspiration. I love their unique displays and all their beautiful products, especially the paper ones—journals and stationary. I actually had my camera with me but couldn't take any pictures inside the store. But I was able to sneak a few of their front window display to share with everyone. Enjoy!
