Hello and welcome to The Inspiration Gallery. 
We're so happy to see you here and look forward to being inspired. 
Taryn, Jaime and I often mention how impressive every link is.
 There is just so much talent out guys are truly talented. 

The weather has been extremely stubborn this week.  One day we have Spring knocking at our door and next thing you know, there's a blizzard outside our window.  I think I am longing for Spring as my crafts this week were somewhat 'Springy'.  I tried a new technique with crepe paper flowers and will have a tutorial next week.  In preparation for Valentine's Day, I'm participating in the 14 days of crafting and made these cute little bubble favours. And lastly I shared a sweet love bloom over at FOLK

It looks like Taryn is getting ready for the Super Bowl this weekend.  I don't know what it is about the Super Bowl that makes me want to eat delicious amounts of greasy junk food, but this is a much healthier and delicious alternative.  Thanks Taryn.  From the manly topic of football to a sweet Valentine's canvas art.  Love the grey and red pretty.

Sweet Jaime shared this beautiful and so simple paper bouquet. Love its simplicity. Thanks Jaime.

And now it's your turn. We can't wait to see what you've been up to...

Blowing kisses your way...valentine's favour

I am so happy to be part of the Fourteen Days of Crafting.  I'm sharing a little earlier than planned as my initial date coincided with the weekly linky party, but I didn't want to miss out on the fun...

Today I'm blowing kisses your way with these adorable little favours.   Super easy, yet very sweet. 

1. Print the labels below (right click and save to computer)
2. Cut a label strip and then wrap/adhere around bubble bottle (used at weddings and can be found at the Dollar Store)
3. Shape pipe cleaner into a heart shape wand and hold in place by wrapping a ribbon around neck of bottle
Optional - I trimmed the little doves on the cap of the bubble bottle and glued a pink heart in its place.

Easy peasy, right?

 Nothing says happiness like bubbles and these are sure to put a smile on someone's face.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the great ideas being shared throughout this week by these amazing ladies.  

And for even more Valentine's inspiration, please check out my Valentine's Pinterest boardThank you so much for stopping by.  Have a great day.

much love,

A Fresh Bloom - Crepe and Watercolor

Sometimes inspiration is born out of nowhere.
Sometimes you need a little spark to ignite it.

The picture on the left was my spark (via Pinterest)
I love experimenting with unique techniques...
...unexpected materials that when placed together form magic...
...and bring that initial idea to life.

And all it took was a tiny little spark.

What ignites your inspiration?

Thank you for visiting today. I wish you a beautiful day!

much love,

ps. I am also sharing a different type of bloom over at FOLKI would love for you to stop by and say hello.
