This week was all about family for me...going to visit family, looking at old photos and reminding those I love that I care about them.
It made me think...Mother's and Father's Day will come before we know it! I know I know...it's months away...but if we find inspiration now...we could be setting up our shops to really target customers already seeking the perfect gift for their Mother or their Father.
This week, I found inspiration by looking for items that reminded me of my family or a family memory.
When I start thinking of special memories or things that my family and I like to do together, I get inspired. Don't you? Here are some items that reminded me of my family and got me inspired to start working on Easter, Mother's Day and Father's Day illustrations and art.
Little known facts about me & my family:
1.) My dad was a potter when I was growing up. He can center and throw a bowl in less than 30 seconds. Zoom!
2.) My parents and I have collected over a million vintage buttons...glass, metal, shell and original plastic. :)
3.) My mom has always been into knitting and making textiles with yarn...we have a large loom in our living room.
4.) My dad has a degree in Ceramics but also a minor in Marine Biology, Jewelry Making and Marine Biology.
5.) My Grandmother was a Tule Painter and spent time teaching decorative painting classes in her spare time.
I'd love to know if any of the items in your shops were inspired by your family.
