Monday inspirations...

Brought to you by Whales...
One of my favorite movies of all time is Whale Rider. Ever since I saw it, when it first came out, I was mesmerized by the beauty of New Zealand, the people of New Zealand, and whales. I love whales. They are my all time favorite animal. I watched Whale Rider again last night, since Adam had never seen it and was completely inspired to make something whale-related. First, I want you to watch the trailer for Whale Rider, if you haven't seen it:

Now, check out all of the beautiful Etsy items that are inspiring me to create something whale inspired for myself!! Enjoy :)
This lovely block print found Here.

Stitched Herring-bone whale found Here.

A chilly whale found Here.

Knitted whale sweater found here.

I must have this whale necklace found here.

AND if I had a baby, she would have this hat that was found here.

Now, if you haven't seen the movie, I highly recommend it :) Have a great and inspiring Monday!! Adam and I are going to The Muny (an outdoor 'opera') tonight to see Annie. So, I will tell you all about it, "Toooomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya, tomorrow!!"

Oh and speaking of making cute things, Jamie (Inspired Mess) is hosting a craft swap!!!! I had a lot of people enter the craft swap that I hosted and a LOT of people who missed it but wanted to participate in the next one. Here is your chance!! Hop over to this blog post and sign up!!
