Has anyone out there been struggling with inspiration? I certainly have! I need to be inspired in so many ways! First, to paint. I haven't painted anything since the first of the year. I want to but that driving inspiration simply isn't there. Second, my flower gardens are in great need of some TLC but, needless to say, I'm completely uninspired to work in them. Third, my house needs some freshening, such as paint, new curtains, new rugs; you know those things that can give a room a face lift but it's not happening because I've hit bottom in the inspiration department. I could keep going with fourth, fifth, sixth, but you get the picture so I'll stop there.
I'm completely surprised that I'm uninspired to get these things done because, honestly, there is so much out there to inspire me. I've thought maybe it's not inspiration that's the problem but a lack of energy. But if you are truly inspired the energy to get it done is part of the package. Inspiration ignites excitement and excitement ignites energy.
I found this little bit of inspiration (photo) on Pinterest. It does inspire me. I've been wanting to do a chalk board for my kitchen and the chalkboard in this photo has me excited to get started on it. I have some chalkboard paint and a frame, you can bet it is on my list of things to do this weekend. I so love the wire basket in this photo as well so I am going to try to find a way to add it to my finished chalkboard.
One thing that I was inspired to do recently was put board and batton up in my dining room. Well, truthfully, I didn't put it up, my husband and son did. But I did help paint it. That's another post though. I have photos to share. Look at that, I am inspired to do another post.
Til next time
