This Spring has brought a lot of mixed blessings to the Himsl Hunter household. We couldn't be happier with how beautiful the weather has been this year and being outside with Ronan is nothing short of inspiring. But the season started out sad for us with the unexpected and tragic death of my cousin, Jesse Himsl as well how difficult it has been for Blake to get a job in this economy. Winds of change are blowing here, and I'll be sure to update you all when I get it figured out myself. :-)
In the meantime, I am determined to find some balance and inspiration in the every day. I don't get in front of my sewing machine nearly as much as I would like and in fact spend most of my time daydreaming about doing so... I am still working on a wedding quilt (from last November, ahem) for my brother and his wife, and I'll highlight in photos later this week. I'm loving how it is turning out.
Inspiration for this week:
1) Amanda Soule - Whenever I am feeling creatively dry I look at Amanda's website and the raw desire to create like a kid hits me like a cartoon mallet.
2) Life Series on Discovery Channel - Nothing puts me in my place as a spec on this planet like the awesome documentary footage and storytelling of "Life". Blake and I have been watching this series with wide eyes and slacked jaws on our HDTV and I can't get enough of it. We even watch a couple of the episodes with Ronan and I love when he shouts at the screen to the animals.
How are you being inspired by every day life?
