Happy new year! With another holiday season complete and a few weeks of much needed rest I am inspired. After the very last holiday doll was sewn and delivered, I kept myself in a bit of a quiet cocoon. Lots of true down time with my husband and children was exactly the gift I needed. The new year is looking so amazing with texture and light. My camera and sketch book are full and inspiration is everywhere. Over the last few years, so many people have wanted to know how i create, where my designs are drawn from.... Here are just a few of my quiet moments...it all comes from moments like these.
