Design Goodness- Round Up of New Year Inspiration

Monday, January 03, 2011


2011 has started off well over here, been enjoying the icy but sunny weather and the merriment of Jack's third birthday.  So excited to start new things in the shop & been drafting the outline for my e-book (can hardly contain myself on this one!).   

After taking a bit of a break & coming around from the holiday crazies, I thought I'd spend some time cultivating inspiration....as I look back and now look forward.  I sort of did a flow of consciousness Etsy-style, just sifting through my favorites, ideas, and images that came to mind without limitations or preconceptions. 

Here's some lovelies inspiring me now: 

{across left to right}

Screenprint from Roddy and Ginger - love the folk + modern vibe and clean design
Paper Ornaments from LBC Paper - so bright & fresh & happy 
Dish Towels from Avril Loretti - home & this print make me happy :) 
Wood Shelf from Old New Again - this beauty would surely inspire me to organize
Whimsical Calendar from The Ink Nest - nothing better than a good 'ol calendar
Letterpress Print from Happy Deliveries - "All Glory Comes from Daring to Begin"

so......what's inspiring you?  specific designs,colors,needs in your life?  Do share! I look forward to all the new beginnings in 2011!
