Creative Inspiration and a Summer Sale!

Hi friends!  I am currently on a family vacation this week with my family and so the blog has been a bit quiet.  My family has enjoyed a longstanding tradition of gathering together each summer in a rented beachfront house on the Florida Coast and filling a week with sun, sand, and tons of silliness. I'll give you a few pics when we get back. Here's a bit of beautiful beachy art to enjoy until then.

I will be back to work on my art later this week, but I found myself with a rare few moments of quiet to myself today, and I thought I would share some fun and inspiration with you.  

I have learned that I have to play music that inspires me anytime I am creating.  It helps me work better, find my creativity, pulls my thoughts away from all the things that I have to do or have done that day.  I definitely have phases of different music styles that I am digging on.  This month it has been all about indie-pop, soulful singers, and fun beats.  What do you listen to when you feel artsy these days?

Here are two gorgeous songs that have been frequenting my play list these days.  I hope you enjoy!!

OWL CITY - FIREFLIES (this is my ringtone I love it so much!! makes me incredibly happy)
