Bursts of Inspiration

We all have creativity lulls, whether they are caused by lack of time due busy work schedules or travel, lack of budget and/or supplies, or simply lack of energy, all of which I've been a happy captive to lately (seriously, visiting my family was so fun!), and getting back into the swing of things is almost always hard. Luckily for me, my good friend Carmen found a great "30 Days of Creativity" challenge just as I returned to real life, and I'm really excited to try to create something every day of June--little bursts of inspiration and creativity really fuel the longer projects too! Due to work, most of my sewing related projects will have to be on the weekends, but just getting the creative juices flowing will be fun and I want to share it with you. I will be posting my daily projects every few days on here, but you can also see what everyone else is creating during June on Pinterest!

And since I wasn't completely stagnant since I last posted, I have several projects to do catch-up posts about during this month as well! Here's the results of Day 1 of the creativity challenge:

I had some jewelry findings from JoAnns, so I made myself a new set of earrings. I'm not a vain person, but I really think we all dress to show our personality, and I love jewelry so very much. I think it adds a touch of class and a bit of fun to the outfit, and it reminds me to always enjoy life, but act like a lady too! I rarely ever wear makeup, because it bothers my eyes and feels a bit fake, but jewelry basically is my makeup---I don't leave home without it (and as with makeup, a little can go a long way!)

Leave a comment and let me know what your favorite accessory is, and definitely give me a shout out if you are going to do the 30 Days of Creativity with me!

Oh I love the earrings Tana! Way to go! Earrings are by far my favorite accessory too! Can't live without them.
