How to get inspired

So I was feeling blah today and then I got a message from Jessica at Mad in Craft, that she nominated me for a Kreativ Blogger award. It's very cool to know that people that don't know me in real life actually read and like my blog. So thanks so much, you have inspired me to post more often.

Okay, rule time:
~thank the person who nominated me for the award
~copy the logo and place it on my blog
~link to the person who nominated me
~list 7 things people may not know about me
~nominate 7 creative bloggers
~post their links
~leave a comment on each

7 Creative Bloggers
  1. Filth Wizardry - super fun and neat craft project to do with your kids.
  2. ikat bag - I just found this blog and love it. Great kids crafts and sewing projects. She has inspired me to get back to basics and make some pattern blocks and stop using commercial patterns that don't work like you want them to anyways.
  3. Make It and Love It - Super cute craft projects for kids and adorable kids clothes.
  4. Scrumdily-do! - great photos and fun projects.
  5. The Activity Mom - just as the name states - great activities for your kids.
  6. The Idea Room - this is just a beautiful blog. Her photos are amazing. Filled with tons of great crafts, recipes and tips.
  7. Mad in Crafts - I know it's the person that nominated me but her blog is one of my favs. Lots of great thrifty ideas for the home.
7 things you may not know about me.
  1. I'm a victim of the recession. My company did a bunch of restructuring just as I was returning from maternity leave - so when my position had been eliminated. I've enjoyed having more time off with my girls but now am itchy to get back into things but it's a tough time.
  2. I've been sewing my whole life. I got my first real sewing machine when I was in grade 4 and have been sewing every since. I graduated high school with a vocational diploma in Fashion Technology and then went and got a BAA in Fashion Design.
  3. I've tried too many crafts to name them all, I have a hard time sticking to anything.
  4. I wish I could sew and craft all day - and maybe check out blogs :)
  5. I have the 2 most beautiful girls in the world - seriously I think they are cuter than your kids :)
  6. I have a hard time spending money on things, especially if I think I could make it.
  7. I hate cleaning, my place is a mess and I hate it. I don't understand those people that don't have clutter and junk piles.
