A cup of Coffee and a Cookie

After a full day at my day job I come home (on most days) make dinner and paint for awhile...........and then it's time for a good cup of coffee and a cookie! This usually happens between 8:00 - 8:30pm. That's when I am ready to take a break from painting and just sit and relax. I get alot of ideas at this time, most of them designs for coffee cups (I wonder why)!?!
We have a Kuerig Coffee Maker and although it's a little pricey I love the way the flavored coffees taste from this machine. I feel it's one of the greatest inventions they could have ever come out with. My favorites are blueberry & creme brulee'. But recently we have found a new place called One Cup Joe. They have some of the best Kcups around. Bannanas Foster, Italian Crème cake, Tiramisu Twist and the list goes on and on! Some people say that I'm not a real coffee drinker ......but I say whatever floats your boat and makes you happy is what's right for you!
So the next time your enjoying your favorite cup (no matter what it might be) with your favorite cookie, hop onto your computer and visit Morning Glories. You just must find a beautiful coffee/tea mugs to make your drink break special.

Love HGTV Magazine

This is the best home improvement magazine ever!

If you do decorative painting like I do, this magazine is a must. I get so many ideas for my painting and my home from the many expert designers. I am usually talking to myself out loud while going through the magazine saying "why didn't I think of that"!

The things that help me the most with my painting are the color combinations, some that I would never think to put together myself. When you go to the back of the magazine (as shown in the picture above) they give you a list of all the colors that have been shown. They also have a home section that gives you combos that work well together too!
So pick one up at your newsstand if you don't already get one.  I subscribe, I think your gonna like this magazine.

Someone once asked me "how do you get your inspiration"? Well I never really gave it much thought but this question got me to thinking.
I would say that I am inspired by what surrounds me in my daily life. The weather, the seasons, colors, flowers and discussions with other people about my craft. I get some pretty fabulous ideas by just talking to other people. Magazines give me alot of inspiration and information on what's trending also. 
So........what inspires you? However you get your inspiration please put it to good use to color your world and bring special meaning to the life that surrounds you.
