They say location, location, location but I say inspiration, inspiration, inspiration. Today I have sourced five inspiring finds that I share with you in hope that it sets off a spark and inspires...
Wherever we look these days, certainly in the UK there is talk of mindfulness and the benefits of living in the moment. Something that is becoming increasingly hard in this fast paced world we live in and we should take a little more down time and refresh our brain. Hence this year's big seller at Christmas were colouring books for adults. Did you get one? Did you buy any as gifts? The talented duo of Kay and Ann over at Mason Dixon Knitting came up with the genius idea of creating a book for knitters. Hit the link and have a look.

In case you are interested here are a few free sheets to down load for mindfulness colouring though not specially for knitters or crafters... Mindful colouring
Instagram as I have mentioned many times is a source full of inspiration, it's fabulous and someone I have been following for a while is Sam over at Sam She has an innocent charm to her drawing and draws mostly on beach stones. Often making a collection and putting them together in little bags as story prompts. A wonderful gift and idea for little ones. Just take a look. It wouldn't be difficult to create this for yourself and a small person in your life,
or even just to sit on your own desk, no, no, no, I wouldn't do that, would I?
|Sam is known for making story stones. A set of stones to |
create your own stories with, how great an idea is this
Continuing the theme of colouring and beaches look what Barbara has been up to...
|Using a sharpie pen and shells|
Clever use of a single colour, Sharpie pen and shells she collected from the beach. She has somehow created almost a Ming dynasty of shells. This wonderful picture was shared on the Facebook page Darn Good Yarn Lots of inspiring things happen over on that page too.

As an odd little snippet, I thought I would share with you the latest trailer form Midsomer murders, this episode, as many others before is filmed in and around our market town and surrounding villages.
