I was humbled and excited to check my inbox this morning and see that Arwen of Sporschool had nominated me for the Kreative Blogger award.
I am supposed to list 6 things that inspire my creativity. That's kind of hard, actually, but I'll give it a shot:
First is definitely other bloggers. I am continally amazed and inspired by what others are doing in their classrooms and homes. And I'm so grateful that they share with the world through the internet. Second would be browsing in thrift stores. I love to find unique items and design activities for children around them. Third, taking a shower. Really! Many of my ideas are solidifed in my mind while I take a shower. Maybe it's the only quiet, reflective time in my day. I probably take unecessarily long showers as a result. Fourth, my sewing projects in particular are inspired by my many relatives who create or who did create things with their hands. Fifth, when I have time, I love to browse Etsy for a glimpse of what others are doing and creating. And finally, sixth, I have a very strong inner motivation to create things. I am sure that the credit for this goes to God, the ultimate Creator.
Now I have to nominate 6 other blogs that inspire me. That is so hard to narrow down too. Many of the ones I love have already been nominated by others. So to share the love, I'll try to nominate ones I haven't seen nominated elsewhere for this award.
Be sure to check out the blogs of these fabulous ladies. You're sure to come away inspired as well.
