Jumpstarting Creativity

After the birth of your first child, you suddenly realize how all of the things you filled your days with are no longer the things that you fill your days with! Then, when you get 15 minutes of uninterrupted time to yourself (on a good day), you also realize how difficult it is to make creativity happen in the blink of an eye! So these last few weeks, I've been trying to revamp my studio a little in an attempt to jumpstart my creative "mojo". These are some of the things I've been into lately:
Anything asian this little corner of my studio now!

Anything that reminds me to be thankful and mindful and grateful for the changes in my life, even if things can be frustrating and crazy at times...(especially on little sleep)....
Anything that documents my little Liam's first days with us....and helps me to remember his story. He is almost 10 weeks old and already I can see him changing!!
Anything of natural beauty to brighten my home... Just got this vase last weekend at a flea market and hubby said, "That's a nice piece of milk glass." Wow...a man after my own heart...he actually DOES listen to me babble about all my flea market finds!!!
And most importantly, this little guy...inspiring me all of the time to be the very best I can be...even if I feel on some days that I don't have a clue as to what I'm doing!! Here he is, happy as can be with his little friend Mr. Sock is good!
