{Day 27} Visions...and a birthday!


{Day 27} journal prompt is on sleeping and dreaming. About rest and rejuvenation the week between Christmas and New Year's. Since I have two small children, who have no idea about the concept of "sleeping in" my sleep schedule hasn't changed a whole lot. They still love to get up at 5 am! However, one thing I have noticed is that I have been having very creative, vibrant dreams. This has affected my perspective while awake. I also noticed that as soon as Christmas was over my color palette changed. I have become inspired by candy-coated colors. Maybe my friend Jenny is rubbing off on me:) So immediately I thought about the phrase "visions of sugar plums danced in thier heads..." because that's what I feel like right now. Life is so full of vitality and inspiration:)

I've been having such a great time with my sister over the last week. Yesterday we celebrated her birthday. My mom and I found this fab Dept. 56 Glitterville hat. Couldn't be more perfect!! Happy Birthday, Laura!!! Hope you're enjoying this week, whatever you're up to.

Pretty page! Inspiration is such a precious thing for us 'artistes', isn't it?!

I love candy colours too. They're somehow related to my childhood, which makes them so powerful to me. I sometimes also get a flash of colour in my head that came from one of the books I had when I was little. It's amazing how tiny experiences in childhood can stay with you forever :)

I love the sugarplum fairies image. I can't tell what you used for the red border though, very effective.
