Where oh where did my inspiration go?

Apparently I can't create in a neat and tidy (do those mean different things) room!
So after many hours of fretting and cutting out and making a FEW stacks around me, I was finally able to do something worth showing or at least mailing out!!! I have two swaps coming due involving valentine banners .... and I have been totally BLOCKED creatively. But I think I do like my little floral bouquets. I just stopped and thought "what is it that I've done that I really like...just go with that and stop trying to create the wheel." So I reflected on a Pam Garrison class at Silver Bella and found some inspiration.
Then I also whipped up a little birthday gift for a friend and popped that in the mail (talking to those British people a lot is effecting my vocab) ... hee hee!

Linda, there are adorable! Oh, how I wish I could play too. I love the pinks and browns and the little nosegays are just the perfect touch with the little banners.

I will share my chandelier with you soon. The pic is on my other computer at work. I promise!

Hugs,
Christine

Love your banner with the little flower bouquets! Are all of those little flowers vintage? If not, where do you find the little velvet ones? Love those!
