Monday inspirations...

I decided that since I am constantly finding inspiration in magazines, online, outside, friends, etc, that I would start sharing some of the things that I have been feeling inspired by. I am going to try and make this a weekly edition to my blog. It will simply be titled...Monday inspirations. Monday, I feel, is a great day to get inspired because it is usually a day of dread for some and the beginning of an inspirational week for others.
So, this will be my first installment of Monday inspirations, Enjoy!:
* I am looooving these brightly colored outdoor chairs found here

* These 3-D looking chalk drawings by Justin the chalk artist. I wish that I could link him or more of his work but a friend sent these to me in an email! Sorry!

* I am totally loving these crayon drawings by Elsie. How cool?

* All of the lilac trees that are blooming in my neighborhood:

* I am loving the fact that everyone I know is giving me money for my birthday so that I can go to the RVA craft weekend:

* I am totally in love with my painting by Rachel. I literally stare at it. Adam and I are actally re-doing our whole spare room around this painting :)

* I am really really loving these paintings that my sister did for the craft swap! I can't wait to get mine :) I also think that she should make me an extra special sister painting too:) Don't you?

* Finally I am loving all of my moleskin journals. I seriously have three different journals going right now. One thing I really miss about the first RVA online class was Elsie's journal prompts. I love to journal. love love love. Oh yeah, that reminds me that I need to post the rest of my 30 day journaling prompt pages!! So, yay for moleskins :)

Have a wicked, awesome, and inspiring week my lovelies :)
