WOYWW: My Little Town of Inspiration

This week is already chocked full of creative projects and homework deadlines.  So, yesterday I thought I would take a break to film a recent doodle inspired by the online class I've been taking via Lisa Congdon.  It was a fabulous 4-week class and I look forward to more from her this year.

You'll see in the first image a little (and brilliant!) contraption in which my step-son built for me as a Christmas pressie.  What is it, you ask?  It's an i-phone holder that allows me to create time-lapse videos, eliminating the shaking motion I was getting previously when creating these.  With that said, enjoy my little time-lapse video of my "Little Town" the music of Simon & Garfunkle's "Our Little Town. :)

For more creative desks of inspiration, make sure to visit the lovely Julia Dunnit. Happy WOYWW!

  5. How cute are those little houses you created there
    The little file boxes on my desk are red one holds my 6 by 6 sheets divided up by colour and some companies that I use a lot of and beside it in the green one are images ready to be used divided by some coloured and companies and the rest of the box holds scraps by colours
