Trend: Owls

Hello everyone, it's Kayleigh! Thank you so much for all the feedback about our blog. We needed to hear that people are listening & want us to continue. Here is a new kind of post for you to be inspired from. I thought it would be cool to focus on owls. I am noticing a few owls around places & even used one on a recent page i did of Makenna in her little Gap owl shirt.


This is the kit from designerDigitals I used by Mindy called Sweet Owl Collection:

Here are a couple other items from the DesignerDigitals store:
Andrea Victoria:

And the paper to match:

Pattie's felts are always stunning & a perfect compliment to a page:

Here is a cute page of Doris aka echogirl who used a cute owl to accent her page:

I frequent Etsy quite often & the other night i got a little carried away. A few things should be arriving in the next couple weeks.
I think this wall decal is adorable!! If I could just figure out where to put him.

You may have noticed that Makenna has a *wee* bit of hair & this cute hairclip would be perfect!

And to keep your coffee warm:

This mom & baby owl pendant is so adorable. Plus I am a sucker for green.

The wall canvas would look perfect with Makennas room, that stripy owl is too cute!

And how stinkin' cute is this room!? I have added this cool site to my faves.

I am feeling inspired & hope you are too. If you use an owl on a page or find something cool on the net, please link us to it! I could have spent hours linking to all the fun things I have found. And I am thinking that owl wall decal could look cool coming out from the side of her window ... hmmm. - kayleigh

And the inspiration continues ...

Thank you everyone for responding to us. We have chatted & the blog will continue!! It was a great confidence boost to read each of your sweet comments & emails to us. Thank you for taking the time to respond. I think we each needed to know that people were being inspired by us.

So ... be prepared for the inspiration to continue. We have decided to have less structure which we think will allow each of us to post various things at varying times. We will also post more of our pages & pull inspiration from what we are doing. As you know we each have young kids & busy families so if there are times we haven't posted: this is why! Thanks so much for the feedback! ((Group hugs all around!))

Feedback Required Please!

This isn't the easiest post to make but we are thinking about shutting down this blog. We are feeling that there is a lack of inspiration happening week after week. I guess we are stuck in a rut. Each week we post challenges trying to inspire people with their scrapping & we are not sure that is happening. We are willing to give it another go but we are asking you to let us know what you would like to see from us. New challenges? No challenges? Random stuff? Guest bloggers? ... the sky is the limit really! Please shoot us an email at creativeinspirationblog@gmail.com to give us your feedback. Thank you!
