Reading & Creative Inspiration


Hello lovelies :) As the days pass by quickly i try and get chances to stop & get a wee break in from the hustle every now and again. One of my favorite ways to get creative me time is catching up on some light reading. More like flipping through beautiful spaces & creative photography is what i love. :) One of my favorite magazines is anything by Somerset magazine. I've been featured in this magazine before and simply love looking through the creative features & articles. I love easy "how-to" DIY projects and get a thrill from all the amazing artists they feature. It really is such a beautiful magazine.


In this issue i love the visual storytelling. I love love love the photography. I keep every issue i have and flip through them whenever i get in a bit of a creative rut. Or simply need a little creative pick me up :)  Its so fun to have a magazine that is packed with paper, photography & creative inspiration at hand. I think you would fall in love with it too :) 


Another thing i love is getting creative. A new to me scrapbooking product are flair badges. So so awesome! What's even better is that i had the opportunity to design a few Inspire Lovely edition badges for you through Scrapbook and More


My very favorite is "YOU MADE MY DAY" shown above. I LOVE these little bits of goodness.
You can purchase these badge buttons and more via Scrapbook and More. They have such an amazing exclusive collection with other awesome artists I know you will love them too :)

I get my inspiration from Mother Nature, my travels, a poem or book I've read, seeing a particular scene in a magazine or a movie or finding a special fabric. Really just about anything can be inspirational if you keep your eyes open!!

Hi, :)
I get my inspiration from everyday objects - things with fun colour combinations or patterns or cute sayings, blogs and of course instagram posts (where I found out about this giveaway!)
I'm a scientist by trade so I love spending my downtime trying to be a bit creative!
