Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice

As promised I am back to share a look into my Ark of Inspiration.  These images surround me daily in some shape or form and add the sauce and spice to my life.  The simple, crisp look of Paloma’s Nest pieces are my much needed visual rest and these two are in my direct field of vision for at least 12 hours a day (hung or resting against my monitors).

My personal space is a different story.  Color is everywhere.  Rich, saturated vibrant color. Southwest textiles and artwork can be seen throughout my home meshed with vintage, baroque inspired furniture and wall treatments.  When I am home I feel energized and comfortable.  These surroundings feed my mind and satisfy my heart.

I challenge you to ask yourself these questions.  What feeds my mind? What satisfies my heart? Write it down, build a bulletin board, paint your walls.  Whatever you do, make a move big or small.

“Even the wildest dreams have to start somewhere.  Allow yourself the time and space to let your mind wander and your imagination fly.”
– Oprah Winfrey

    “Write it down, build a bulletin board, paint your walls. Whatever you do, make a move big or small.” Love this! I need to make sure I find time to create these items of inspiration and wonderment (no matter if they are big or small). Always sounds so exciting, but I need to make it a priority to break away from the daily grind.

    I hear ya! You should blog about your inspiration. It feels good to get it out in the universe and let that be your first move. Thanks for reading!
