One, Two, You Know What To Do

So, I've got the inspiration, the idea, the frame... It's time to make my version of an inspiration board!

I headed to the hardware store for some wire. I've seen this done with chicken wire, but I was attracted to some wire with a grid pattern:

I stretched it across the back of the frame then drew some butterfly shapes on poster board and cut them out:

Then, using wire and straight pins (I used multi-color pins for fun) start arranging the butterflies let them cluster and stream in a fluid arrangement...

Et voila! My inspiration board full of butterflies like wishes for all the things I'm loving, appreciating, and working for. It's not a "real" inspiration board, but the project made me feel open again to putting my dreams in the room so I can see them, and more, believe in them, again!

And my super cool business coach, Kim Kuhteubl, is pushing me to go for it again too- to create an inspiration project with defined goals and dreams. I promise, I'll do it! And you'll be the first to see it.

Now, stay tuned tomorrow for more work by the artists who inspired this project. You'll be amazed by their work.
