Natural Inspiration from Attic24

Hey there and happy Monday to you πŸ™‚ One of the biggest things for anyone that creates is finding inspiration and motivation to do so. Sometimes inspiration can come in the most unexpected moments or items, and sometimes it can come without you really noticing, sneaky little thing πŸ™‚ There is however one constant source of inspiration for me, and that is the natural world. Whether it is the beautiful tones of an autumn leaf, the texture of an animals coat or the simple practicality of needing to wrap up warm against Mother Nature’s frequently changing moods, the natural world never fails to inspire, motivate and even sometimes overwhelm me with it’s beauty and elegance.
