Inspiration Found

Everyday I read a wonderful blog called Treasures Found: Inspiration is Everywhere written by Erin Prais-Hintz. It's truly one of my favorite blogs. Erin shows us, as we journey through life, to find treasures everywhere we look and how to gain inspiration from them. This blog is beautiful and informative. I love Erin's writing style, and her jewelry is beautiful!

I have taken her lessons to heart, and I have tried to find inspiration in what I see. In this case, I think I did! Can you guess what I used? Are you ready?
>Here's the answer!

Paper Towels----------------------->

Not just one paper towel, but another one, as well!

Here's how they inspired me!

These butterflies ------------------->
are for Beads of Courage. This paper towel inspired the new wing shape.

This paper towel inspired thoughts of spring and button flowers!

Isn't that wonderful that something so mundane and everyday can inspire a bead or two or three or four?

Erin, thank you for your guidance and helping me to learn to see that there truly are treasures everywhere. With those treasures is inspiration!

Oh Miss Mallory! You have really honored me with your post! Thank you so very much! I am writing to you with tears in my eye...because I have always said that if I were to inspire just one person than it would all be worth it. You are my "something good" today! I think that paper towel design is the tops! I love those little fluttery flowers and how you translated them into glass. I am intrigued by the process of how glass beads are made as I don't make any components myself. I think that these are just lovely, and so is your soul for sharing your talents with the Beads of Courage, which you alerted me to. Thank you so much for being someone that I treasure! And thank you for sharing YOUR inspiration! Enjoy the day! Erin
