Vacation Inspiration

I'm just back in town from a mini-vacation up to the Wisconsin Dells.  I just love it when I come home and I'm so inspired that my creative juices are just oozing out of my pores.  I'm going to be making some sketches, and jotting down some notes so I don't forget them on days when I don't have so much coffee.  :)

We stayed at the Kalahari Resort which is African Safari themed... you know what that means.... LOTS OF BEADWORK... yes, so many of their decorations, wall hangings, even pieces of artwork in our rooms were all beautiful woven pieces of bead heaven!  Do you think I took my camera... no, silly me I forgot.  BUT... I guarantee you'll be able to enjoy some of the atmosphere in the pieces I create in the upcoming days!  I just love being home, welcomed by my two fur babies, and tonight... my own bed.  Ahhhhh, bliss! 

In addition to the place being an inspiration... I gained so much inspiration from the people I met.  My sweetie was actually attending a convention while we were there... so I had a great time meeting some of the other realtors from his company.  I felt like so much a part of the family and really enjoyed getting to know many of them on a more familial level.  I'm even doing a special piece of jewelry for a charity event coming up in October that I'm so excited to help out!  *More on that to come soon!

Hope your weekend was wonderful and thus far your week has started you out with many blessings!  Have a terrific evening dear friends!

So will it be a lazy river sort of inspiration or a swirly toilet bowl LOL! Can't wait to see what you do. I have some awesome safari beads that I wanted to use after seeing the Lion King at the Overture in Madison this spring. You may have just jogged by creative memory!
Enjoy the day!
