Day 12: Craft/blog every day in June!


Hi guys.....hope you're all well.....wonder what today's prompts are?

Day 12: How/where you get your inspiration OR Craft something with an Autumn theme

Well, I've got to admit.....I LOVE Pinterest.....it's a fab source of inspiration but it
sure does eat into your time lol. I do try to limit myself to once a week, doesn't always
work but I do try.....honest! I buy the odd magazine too, I love the Docrafts Creativity as
it has a bit of everything in it. I think mainly I get inspiration from you crafty bloggers....I
love seeing someone else's take on a stamp, how they've used a die etc.....you could give 
a dozen crafters the same items & they'd come up with a dozen different makes!
Sometimes if Mr Mojo's on a break I'll grab a random paper pad. find a sketch to follow
& see what I can come up with.....sometimes it works, sometimes not!!

Now I was gonna go for the double today, I decided to make a triple wrap bracelet
using chocolate brown, dark green & some russet coloured beads.......went to get the
beads out this morning & could I find the russet coloured beads? Nope, I've had my craft 
room upside down, every drawer pulled out.......nowhere to be seen.....I think they
must have gotten thrown out by mistake :(

Would love to know where you get your inspiration from......and if you happen to
see a little round tub of russet coloured beads..........do send 'em home!
