Some Nice Pictures

Today it's so sunny, it smells like Summer. I should be thankful, I should feel content,  I should be happy... but I'm not. :-( It's just one of "those days", you know. I feel really stressed, restless, anxious... about work, about my family, about feelings, about me... At first I wasn't in the mood for a cheerful post, but then again I thought I should post some really cute photos that put a smile on my face whenever I see them. So, less words, more images. Some photos are from last weekend and some are random.
I'm sorry for my bad mood... :-(
Savritsa & Bo-boy
They are playing like little kids
I like this photo. We are so colorful.
"Run Forrest. Run!!!" - LOL
When nature is painting!
No words.
Sooo sleepy!
Me & my sis.
Afrodite & me.
We are so funny together! 
How are you these days?

I've Been Featured On One Pretty Thing

One of my creations has been featured once more on One Pretty Thing. I'm so excited! Well, that's not really MY idea, I've used some templates from Crafts-Beautiful, but the whole decorated creation is ALL MINE!
As a background I've used this template
Crafts Beautiful Jan08 inc Backing Papers & Templates
and for the box & the butterfly I've used this template.
Butterfly Fold Template
First, I've printed out the background and then I've printed once more the box template on it. I've cut, folded and glued everything. As a final touch I've hot glued a fabric flower on top of the butterfly. This box was a birthday gift for my friend Annie's last year's birthday. Inside there was her special birthday present.
You should look around on this site.
You'll find many beautiful ideas for any kind of creation.

Blog It Forward - Things That Inspire Me

Finally, my turn has arrive to blog about the Things That Inspire Me. It's a part of the Indie Blog It Forward Project. This is a way for some of the students in the Indie Biz class to support each other. This means that each day one of us posts on our blogs about what is inspiring us right now, and then link to the next person on the list. It's really fun to see what is inspiring everyone lately and the truth is that I've found lots of new inspiration on each and every of the previous blogs on our list. You can check the Blog List here.
So, let's start my own list of Inspiration.
I can find inspiration anywhere!

I'm mostly inspired by images that I find through
(If you know the sources you can e-mail me so I can give credit)

I'm also inspired by the stories of successful people.
Elsie Flannigan
And all of her creations... OF COURSE!
She has accomplished so much although she's so young.
She's my everyday inspiration & modivation.

But above all, I'm inspired by...
That was only just a hint of all the things that inspire me. The truth is that I can never define it exactly. It can be found everywhere, anyplace, anytime. Somedays I feel so "dry" of ideas and suddenly -oops!!!- that's when it hits me! 
Tomorrow don't forget to check Eleise's blog
for all the things that inspire her.
Until next time...
