How do you find time to make jewelry, or blog, or do anything for that matter? By the time I get off work I have nothing left. I don’t see how you have the energy to come up with, and or execute any of this. How do you come up with half of your ideas? These are all statements and questions I here all time.
Yes I am a wife, a mother of three, and I hold a full time job working with an interior designer, but that is not all of me. I am a creative person, I always have been. Yes, when I get home I am tired sometimes exhausted, but when an idea comes up I jot it down and execute it the first chance I get. Designing and creating are part of who I am. It relaxes me.
Inspiration for my jewelry comes from many different places. My family, work, and memories from my youth, just to name a few. Inspiration comes in all shapes, forms, and sizes, and sometimes comes from the most unexpected places. For instance, I work for an interior designer at a hardware store, we are in and out of clients homes all day. Sometimes I will just be standing their looking out of a new window and get inspiration from whatever nature decides to put before me. Sometimes I will get ideas as I am helping clients pick out tiles. My point is, you never know when something will spark and idea and a vision of what you want to create.
I admit this used to really bother me, but I have learned to embrace it. Look for inspiration all around you no matter what you do. Once we embrace the fact that inspiration for creating, and for our lives will hit us out nowhere we can truly be happier. Happier on a day to day biases and happier doing what we love. I would love for everyone to comment with what inspires you, and don’t forget to stop by http://3Littlebirds.shophandmade.com and see what is new!
