Inspiration. Where does it come from? Creativity? Which inspires which, which comes first? How do we inspire the creative thought process? I have realized fairly late in life that I am a somewhat creative person. My parents always encouraged my intellectual side because that is where I excelled. That is not to say that they did not encourage artistic abilities, I have a sister that is a very talented artist and they always encouraged her artistic side.
First let me say that I was struggling with the right way to write this post. I kept hesitating. Why? Because when you go into business for yourself, over and over and over, branding people talk to you about your brand, about staying consistent with your message, about always presenting the right image for your brand. I do understand this and for the most part, I follow that advice, but I also believe that you have to stay true to yourself.
It has been quite a busy week……I will be back to writing in a few days. This is for you and the glorious weekend that is upon us. Find happiness wherever you go, in everything you see, just decide to be HAPPY!!!
You can’t listen to this song and NOT dance….come join me!
Ear cuffs are the new arm cuffs.
It seems like ear cuffs, like most trends from the 1980s, are having a comeback moment. Mrs. Jones really noticed it during the punk rock theme of the 2013 Met Gala. There was quite a wide variety to be seen on the likes of Sienna Miller, Rooney Mara, and Cara Delevingne. They also showed up all over the spring fashion collections. They are equal parts punk and glam. They are just a little extra something to notice. Like all jewelry, you can dictate your look from delicate and simple to intricate, bejeweled and studded. It looks like this trend is here to stay for awhile.
Flowers are a common theme of design in the jewelry world. Their shape and color are an endless source of inspiration. Here is another foray into the video world……on a dreary, rainy day here in the mid Atlantic. Please enjoy this little bit of springtime. I just love flowers, don’t you?
