I love Burdastyle!  The members are so fantastic and have the most inspiring ideas to share.

My son loves to eat popcorn…  In fact he can eat an entire bowl by himself!  This project is perfect…  Now to get my unfinshed projects out of the way so I can whip one up for his birthday in February!

Dance Like No Ones Watching

Dance Like No Ones Watching.

William W. Purkey

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”

Vogue Vintage

Now this is an inspiration to look at!

V8687

It’s been a few years since I took a look at Vogue Patterns’ website.  Took a stroll there today and I never even made it past the first page!  This outfit grabbed my attention right away, so much so that I had to share!  I have already added the pattern to my shopping bag, $3.99!  Could it get any better?  I would have paid full price for this one, but am thankful for the discount.  Check out the link V8687.  The set even includes an adorable matching belt… Now to find the perfect fabric to create this stunner!

It’s getting cold in my part of the world

but I don’t want to always wear pants!   Well look what I happened across the other day…My Sock Theory.

The following is part of her post from May7/10, just love the quote she used!

In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different – Coco Chanel

I am sure you have heard this Coco quote before, but it came to the forefront of my mind while studying the new styles on SockTheory and when considering how best to get acquainted with them.

Her styles are inspirational to say the least~!  I have already sent in my request for her catalogue.  Her styles are not the only thing I love however.  Her prices are very affordable for those of us who don’t have the “model/heiress/princess” size wallet!

Inspiration is a Marvelous thing…

What inspires you?  What do you do with that inspiration?  My aim with this site is to share inspiration I find and how I use it.

My biggest inspiration comes from my children, animals, nature, God, Audrey Hepburn and sewing…  On this site I plan to share my sewing creations and hope to inspire others to create their own.

Now who isn’t inspired by this Givenchy dress?!  I for one, have wanted my own for as long as I can remember!  There once was a pattern available for making it.  Vogue Wardrobe 2396 (scroll to the bottom of the page). Unfortunately I missed out on acquiring one before it was discontinued.  Last week I found a clever seamstress who not only drafted a pattern inspired by this dress, but selfishly shared her technique with her readers!   I was INSPIRED by all means!  I hope to find some wonderful fabric for it after the holidays and look forward to creating my very own Audrey-Givenchy inspired dress…
