Hey all you crafty, creative people!  Where do you get your inspiration from?  What makes your creative juices flow?
One of my latest pretties!

I’ve got a variety of “ craft accelerants” that work for me.  Nature is a big one.  And this time of year is full of inspiration!  The leaves in all their colors, the smell of the crisp air, “leaf showers” (as one of my friends calls it),  a bunch of cornstalks with pumpkins out by a neighbor’s mailbox.  These are the things that pretty jewelry ideas are made of.
It's a pin and a barrette.

Texture is another thing that will set my mind in motion.  So many textures, so little time to make all of the ideas!  Take fabrics of all kinds, yarns both smooth and bumpy, sparkly beads, buttons, wood, throw in some of those fall leaves we mentioned earlier, and you’ve got the perfect accessory!

And, thus, the autumn escapades begin!  
Capitalizing on the beautiful fall colors.

Don’t forget to tell us how you’re inspired.
