A started reading another book last night. (All of this reading, sheesh, you'd think it were one of my New Year's goals or something!) This total gem of a book is called The Gentle Art of Domesticity by Jane Brocket (see link on the left). I want to share with you a quote from the book about what she calls, "The Habit of Seeing" along with a picture I took from one of one of my many trips to the Flea Market.
"We must learn to sift through the mass of stimuli we encounter every day and to focus on what inspires us as individuals and, in doing so, create a way of seeing, a way of being receptive to inspiration."
"One thing that sets creative people apart is that they have all aquired the habit of being receptive to inspiration, actively seeking it or even simply recognizing it."

- What inspires you? Great color combinations, music, photographs, paintings, books, movies?
- What's holding you back from being creative? Try something new! The only way to learn is to give it a try!
