Today I noticed a Unidentified Yellow Object in the sky! I am not quite sure what it is, but it is making for some warm weather thats for sure! I think its about 2 weeks since this object has made its appearance in the sky. I am hoping that this phenomenon lasts a while longer.

Anyway, I was looking for motivation today! I wanted to scrap but I think I am blocked. Then I was reading A Designer's Eye (for like the 3rd time) and I came across this quote that I have placed on my computer moniter:

Mu ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living. Anais Nin
And sure enough, not 1/2 hr later, my ds lost his first tooth. Naturally I took a picture and I printed it and its going to be one of my next pages. Then my dh looked at me and said "You can find inspiration in ANYTHING!" Maybe I'm not blocked, I am just spending too much time looking at my computer screen. I have been blocked for a few days and I was spending so much time online looking at other los hoping that they would inspire me that I forgot to look at my little inspirations sitting at my feet. I will definitely have to post the lost tooth lo when I get finished.

Thanx for listening to my rambling. I really feel like I don't have alot to say, but I say it anyway! Have a nice day.

I love that quote, Mona! I too have changed my SB philosophy. Everyone in the family is getting tired of me with my camera everywhere, I think.

Thanks for your sweet comment on Heather's blog! ((( HUGS )))

Great quote! And oh, so true!! I have found that lately, I have been more inspired by life around me, than from what I see online.

Congrats to your ds on his lost tooth!!
