Sweet Spring Inspirations

Last week’s bead giveaway had a wonderful turn out, and as always your answers to our inspiration question were wonderful. Reading about all of your favorite spring sights, smells, and sounds definitely makes one long for an end to snow.

The winner of the Spring Jewels giveaway is Emily. She says: “Spring is endlessly inspiring, but my favorite Springtime activity is a hike in the forest to stimulate my creativity. The new fern fronds curling out of the leaf littered soil and the first wildflowers opening get me thinking of dangling earrings and coiling bracelets in yellow-greens, creamy white and shades of pink and lavender. Brown is always a favorite with me. I have to stop myself from using it in every thing I make.”

I love this vision of soft colors and budding growth - just imagine a beautiful palette of creamy pearls, purple silk, and green glass!

Thank you so much to everyone who entered the giveaway. May you have amazing color inspirations this spring!
