Happy Friday!!!

I know I've been posting a lot of stuff this week. I usually post more of my art and less material indulgences, but since this weeks topic for Cabinet of Curiosities is Inspiration, I like to show the things around me that I find in everyday life that inspire me. On a deeper level, my real inspiration comes from my husband, my kids, my family. Their support means the world to me. I am also so very, very inspired by the amazing artists out there in the blog world and those that don't have blogs. I've been trying to provide links to a lot of my favorites this week. I made an inspiration book this summer that you can see more of here. I still love to page through it and play with different patterns and colors that inspire me.Then there's the everyday stuff that inspires me, like movies, books and getting fun, fun stuff in the mail to use in my art. Which leads me to these pictures. ALL of these fabulous goodies came from Nina for the Crafty Valentine swap that was hosted over on the greenbeanbaby blog. Wow!!! The vintage buttons at the top are my favorite. She included *tons* of fun vintage finds, candy and even goodies for my kids. Nina was over the top in indulging me. Opening her box filled with (literally) dozens of little gifts wrapped up was like a dream. Thanks, Nina!!

This gorgeous little package is from Little Pink Studio. Absolutely divine!Finally, this enormous heap of swappity goodness is from an ephemera swap I was in. Hope you all have a great weekend! We'll see you back here on Sunday for prompt #6!!!!
