Finding Inspiration

So last week I blogged about how I was in desperate need of inspiration and found some encouragement in words and art found on Etsy. I guess I have a fondness for the simplicity of simple words and all the joy and comfort that is found in them. In fact, I am thinking that the majority of my Spring Collection is going to involve an array of word charms (you know that I have already started creating for the collection's debut!). But I couldn't keep all the joy to myself, now could I? Here are a few pieces that I have already put up on Etsy: Additionally, I made a few custom pieces for some friends of mine last week. The first was for a friend from church who wanted a long black and silver necklace for her daughter, whose middle name is Joy. Here's what I came up with. Secondly, my dear friend Sherrie asked me to make her daughter, who also happened to be the flower girl at my wedding, a pink necklace. "I don't care what it looks like, so long as it's pink!" I knew immediately what I would do!
Finally, thanks to you all for sending your kind words via last week's post. I guess you all could tell that I was down, because your words of wisdom and similar stories were just what I needed! I have already felt like the road is beginning to pave itself in front of us; I will of course keep you all updated!
