Inspired by creative momentum

The month of May has turned out to be a bit of a whirlwind taking me from Surtex 2013 in the heart of NYC to the wilderness of Vancouver Island B.C. for a week of camping.Its been busy and it’s been fun.

I am really enjoying the app PicCal.( A big thank you to Sam Osborne and her Month in the life of a designer series for introducing it to me)

I often get a bit to caught up in my creative life and have that crazy feeling that I am one step behind and  not accomplishing all that I have set out to do. By arranging a visual diary of my month, I realize that I actually have been super productive and on track!   Below are some of the bits and pieces I would like to share with you.

The making of my handmade business cards is slowly coming together. How much fun is it to create your very own, one of a kind, business cards?People love them. It’s like giving a tiny piece of your art to someone.

I will post more pics when they are finished.

My #365patterns  project continues.I thought this pattern was kind of fun and perfect for a summer BBQ!  I have to admit that due to the circumstances I didn’t create a pattern every day for the month of May, however, I did make an effort to at least sketch a motif daily. Lots more over on Instagram.

Finally, a little something I had fun with while camping in the rain in the wilderness of B.C. A reminder to just get inspired by whatever the circumstances. Create daily! Keep the creative juices flowing.

Its been a busy and very productive month! I feel a sense of accomplishment~ a good motivator to just keep at it.

Thanks for dropping by!
