inspiration deck

In the hubbub of holiday activities I'd totally forgotten about the inspiration deck swap I participated in (hosted by Jessica at InSearchOfDessert).  Then my newly shuffled deck showed up in the mail.  What a treat!  I LOVE this swap and ended up with some beautiful, inspiring, delightful mini art pieces!

I love that each is SO different and most are very different from anything I would think of. My plan (as of now anyway) is to make a little display box for them so I can keep them on my desk and each week pull out a new card to inspire my week's creativity.  As I pull a new one each week I'll share it in more detail here.  For now, I'm in the process of sending each of you a heartfelt personal thank you - and I can't wait til the next swap!

P.S. with Pinterest playing such an active role in the creative community and images being pinned right and left, I decided it was time to start claiming my images so am going to try to remember to add my name to everything I post.  Key word: try. :)


  1. Wonderful deck, I can tell. That must have been an incredible swap. I'm glad it wasn't me. I've never hosted anything that big before.

    I should probably start marking my stuff, too, but I doubt anyone would want a photo of anything I made, anyway.

  2. They look amazing... I am thinking I need to be part of this if it is run again next year... looks like It is a great project and will inspire you all year next year....xx

  3. Wowee they look fabulous!! So glad to see my wee owl in among that pack of creative talent! I can't wait until I receive mine :)
