Today I’m inspired by…Thanksgiving. I am so thankful that I have a loving and supportive family. Here’s to a happy holiday for you!
Today I’m inspired by…Anthropologie. They just opened a new store near me and I’m SO excited! I usually oogle their eye-candy on their website (they have some fabulous web-designers!) but now I can gawk in their store. Here are some inspiring things I’ve found- look at all the details! Here is their website for more inspiration: Anthropologie

Today I’m inspired by…team jerseys. Have you ever really checked out team colors on football jerseys? Some of them are really cool color combinations.

Patriots) should be pretty good! Here are some inspiring team jerseys I found online and the coordinating Bazzill Cardstock (I tried to find one as close as I could!) for each.

Today I’m inspired by…scarves. Strange, but true. I’m wearing one today that I love because it is so soft! Here are some other inspiring scarves from around the web.

Here are three different tutorials for scarves you can make yourself out of old t-shirts:

Today I’m inspired by…Numbers. I teach first grade and my brain has been swimming with numbers as I teach the kids subtraction. Here are some cool pieces with numbers from around the web.
Calmly It Goes Wood Type by Green Chair Press Inspiration point: This Etsy shop is amazing! There are tons of letterpress items for sale and I liked the colors and typeface in this one.
123 Tag Books by Three Potato Four Inspiration point: Are these darling? It looks like a manila tag with some paper stapled inside- so cute!
Top Ten Signature Loop Stitched Notebooks from Russel+Hazel Inspiration point: I love the idea of these notebooks. It would be great for a collection of school memories or anniversaries for each year.
Tabletop Splat Mat by Sugar Booger Inspiration point: The adorable animals caught my eye but I also like the idea of making a counting book or activity for T. These colors are great- not too masculine and not too feminine.
Spierkermann House Numbers featured on Mid-Century Modernist Inspiration point: This already looks like a piece of art but they are actual house numbers. I love the mix-and-match numbers…perhaps I will mix some of my number stickers that I have laying around…it would make a cute birthday card!
Fabric Remix Scarf by Melbry Inspiration point: I really like the mix of patterns and colors on this scarf- it would make a great background or border on a page.
Today I’m inspired by…rugs. Seems a little random but we’re looking for one for our dining room so I’ve been weighing my options. We have a pretty neutral color in there which is good and bad- it is hard to make a decision. Here are some inspiring rugs from the web.
Circo Chenille Rugs from Target Inspiration point: I couldn’t decide if I liked the “boy” version or the “girl” version of this rug. Both have great color combinations!
Hippo and Dot Fun rugs from DwellStudio for Target Inspiration point: Again, I couldn’t decide between these two rugs. I love the colors on both and the striped dots seem quite interesting!
Handmade Ferns Rug from Overstock.com Inspiration point: I like the overlapping leaves and flowers in this rug. I am thinking I could do a similar look on a card- especially a sympathy card which are so hard to find inspiration for.
Pixar Green Rug from Overstock.com Inspiration point: I love this rug. If only I had a few hundred dollars to drop on a rug that I don’t really need, this is the one I’d buy. Dark teal and spring green- love, love, love.
Rust Rug from Overstock.com Inspiration point: I really think these patterns look great together- I’m always looking for ways to use my patterned strips together and here is a great use for them!
Seventeen Flirt Daisy Rug at Target Inspiration point: I like these colors and flowers on this rug. It would make a great card if turned on it’s side.
Seventeen Swirls Rug from Target Inspiration point: I really like these dots in a swirly pattern- it would be easy to make with come colorful markers.
Round Embroidered Rug from Urban Outfitters Inspiration point: This teal, orange, yellow, and cream scheme is great…very summery!
