What Inspires Me...


I stand on the beach here in Freeport with my toes digging into the warm white sand.  I look out over the crystal clear turquoise water of the Atlantic ocean.  I feel the cool ocean breeze on my face, the sun warming my already tanned skin.  I breathe in the familiar smell of seawater and salt.  I see children building sand castles, couples flirting on their beach towels, people napping on beach chairs, locals buzzing through the water on jet skis.  I hear the waves breaking on the beach, the reggae music bumping in the snack shack up the way, and the rustle of palm trees as the wind rushes through the fronds.  And I think, "Wow...what a lucky woman am I?".  For 16 weeks I've had the privilege of living here on Grand Bahama Island, and it's almost time to go back to "the real world" for a while.  So many parts of me are intensely excited about coming home, but there is still a part of me that will always respond to this picturesque seascape that is the Bahamas...

When I go back home, I will definitely be in the creating mood.  Sometimes I just have to take a step back from my inspiration to really be able to capture the beauty of it in a new design.  I have to take a mental snapshot of it, mull it over, create and recreate the piece in my mind, and THEN I can sit down and put it together.  When I'm really inspired by something, I just want it to be PERFECT.  I want everyone else that sees the piece to reckon back to that beautiful seascape that's in my mind.  Maybe even conjure up an image of their own.  In short, I want my inspiration to inspire others!  Not such an easy task...


So in closing, I wanted to share a few pictures of this inspiring scene.  I wanted you all to see at least a glimpse of what I see.  And when my new designs come out, I hope you will be as inspired as I've been!  Cue Caribbean breeze...

    1. Hi Janna! Oh yes, I will be rested, and my weary hubby will be in MUCH need of some. He has to endure med school while I get to soak up the perks of the Caribbean!
