Monday's Muse - Kudos to Creative Moms

There’s a woman at the beginning of all great things.
- Alpohonse de Lamartine


There is an abundance of creative people "out there" & oodles of Mom's so the combo is only natural. Some are on my blog list - please visit if you have the time. I've met many wonderful creative ladies on Etsy , ZNE & in blogland. The question "how do you do it all?" comes up a lot. (Though lists & babysitters are suggested, caffeine & late nights seem to be the most popular responses). Tips are shared on topics from Pink-eye to Polaroid Transfers. The advice to "get some rest...take some time for yourself..." is often heard & given.

I just want to say Kudos to all you generous Moms! Now here's a chance to get something for yourself! Kristine of CelticKnot.etsy.com has kindly donated 2 pairs of her Origami Lucky Star Earrings in the winner's choice of colors!
1 random winner will be drawn on Valentine's Day. To enter this giveaway just leave a comment here by Saturday at noon EST. (& no you don't have to be a Mom to enter)

Couple of other Creative Mom notes today. The documentary Who Does She Think She Is? looks very cool - hope it comes to my town!

Some people are still unaware that reality contains unparalleled beauties. The fantastic and unexpected, the ever-changing and renewing is nowhere so exemplified as in real life itself. - Berenice Abbott

  3. I love the quotes, and would love to be entered in the drawing for those darling earrings! I, too, rely on caffeine and lack of sleep to indulge my inner artist. Thanks for all of the great links! :)

  9. Such cute earrings. And YAY to caffeine! I don't think I could keep up with my over active 6 year year old son without caffeine. And, yes, the caffeine helps get the creative juices flowing. Thanks for the fabulous giveaway!

  19. To do it all, put on those cute and sweet earrings, of course!
    I always feel better wearing jewelry..

    Also, make lists to keep sane...! Sometimes I move my days around on my lists, and the sky doesn't fall!

  20. Love those earrings! So cute, and they would be light and comfortable, which is a big plus!

    I always try to squeeze in some classic sci-fi myself, especially Orwell and Bradbury.
