I read both Lee's blog and Ali's blog, but I saw it on Lee's first and it inspired me to post some things that inspire me, as well.

Color: Well, I tried. I tried and tried, but I could not pick just one color. It's because these colors here, TOGETHER, are what really inspire me. The colors of autumn. I decorate my house in these colors and anything I see in these colors always catch my eye. I also find myself reaching for these colors when I create whether it be painting, scrapbooking, card making... I just love the warm, rich and inviting feel of them.

Font: Scriptina I just got done doing two wedding gift albums and I used this font several times in each of them. I just love it's clean, but sophisticated lines.

Pattern: These days, my favorite pattern is a swirl. I love swirly, curly embellishments and flourishes. Even better is when I see the swirly flourishes on a tree. LOVE trees.

Shape: The Circle Faithful and neverending, you always bring me comfort...and yes, I had to sneak in a tree and my favorite colors again. lol

Letter: M... My best friend's name is Marco. My last name starts with M, my little guy's name starts with M, one of my best friends' name starts with M... Yeah, I like it a lot. =)
Number: The Big 4-0... Yup. In a little over a week, I will be celebrating my 40th birthday. I remember thinking that 40 was such an old age...WOW. Now it's just around the bend and I couldn't be happier. With age has come wisdom. I am looking forward to being a better me...
Word: True This was my One Little Word for the year and I really feel that I have tried to stay true to myself and to those around me. I am on a continuous journey to find out what really is TRUE in this life.
What inspires you these days??

Love those trees as well with those little swirly curlyqs!!! Yesterday when I walked the pasture, leaves were falling all around me and I don't think it could have been a more glorious day!
Hope you keep sharing what you "see" dear Sherry! WHAT A BLESSING you are to me.
Holykisses xoxo
