Have you seen my mojo?

I took a bit of a break...okay, a bit more than a bit...let's face it, I dropped the ball.    But after much badgering from my sister's I'm trying to get back into being a crafty girl.  I'm starting small, like peeking at my favorites on Flikr to see what inspires me. 

Honestly, a lot inspires me, but I can't seem to find the motivation to get started.  I actually have worked on a few things here and there, mostly Christmas stuff (told you I was slacking!) that I hope to share later this week.

For today I thought I'd share some of what inspired me on Flickr then go from there, so here goes!

I'll start with my sister, for obvious reasons.  You may know her as Quilted Cupcake.  She inspires me on a daily basis.  She runs her own business, runs a house with two boys (nuff said), hosts a crafy podcast and makes time every single day to be creative.  Below is her candy display from this past Christmas.  I just love how she puts things together. (By the way, I have two other crafty sisters that I plan to post about in a separate post.  See, I'm planning ahead!)

Rick Cheadle inspires me too.  I know I've shared some of his whimsical painted furniture before, but he keeps coming out with more stuff I love.  I think this one is my favorite so far:

I love pillows as well.  This one by monaw2008 is right up my alley with the red and teal houses:

I have to admit, zipper flowers entrance me.  I can't figure out how they turn out so darn cute from just a zipper!  Love this one from The Queen of Re:

This quilt from lalasmom is a hoot!  I love applique and although these owls are probably meant for a childs's bed, I'd love to have this on my bed!

So that's it for now.  Just my way of dipping my feet back into the world of blog land.  I'm going to try my best to go back to posting more regularly.  I know once summer gets closer and I start going to yard sales  and pull out the spray paint I'll be back in the swing of things!
