This is the little coffee cup that got my creative juices flowing. I don’t know if you have noticed but I haven’t been writing or posting as much. My need to hang with the kids this summer has taken over. I just haven’t had as much to time to create as I would like, but that’s ok. Those kiddos grow up fast and summers go by way to quick.
Anywho, I went on a little romantic getaway recently with my hubby (actually I just tagged along while he was traveling for work). Oh how wonderful it is just to hang out and spend time with the one you love. It really reminds you why you fell in love in the first place. Anywho back to the cup! I was having a very peaceful and quiet breakfast at the hotel. Oh did I mention that my kids were NOT with us? I started looking at my coffee cup and I fell in love with the little trees that decorated the cup! All of a sudden I couldn’t wait to get home. I had an idea! I was also excited to use my new Frog Tape that I had received in my goody bag at the Haven Conference.
Even though I have a serious extreme awful phobia of frogs (YUCKKKKKKKKKKKK I would rather swim with great whites then hold one of those nasty little creatures), I overlooked the name and grabbed the Frog Tape.
I really wanted to paint words that are meaningful to me under the trees and birds. However I CAN NOT paint words. I have tried so many times and have ruined so many pieces. So I remembered this backgammon game I bought at Habitat Restore for $4.00. No I didn’t buy it to play, I bought it for allllllll those little wood pieces!
If you’re open to it, it’s truly amazing all the different places you can be inspired!
