It's a process...

You have seen The Odd Sparrow's final products on our website but you have rarely seen something actually in progress. Why?'s not that it is a huge secret. I confess. I am not the neatest worker on the planet. You see, I have this tendency to get into one thing...then another...and then another...all while doing my best to stay on track with my first project. I know, it sounds a little crazy...and it is. But I love what I do and I get excited about each and every idea as they roll down the pike.

Where do I get these ideas? There are a lot of answers to that question, but the quickest and most accurate answer is that they come mostly from "conversations" that I carry on with a dear friend. These "conversations" happen exclusively online via private chats and they occur with one person and one person only. Who is this mastermind? None other than Francie of The Scented Cottage. Whenever an idea pops up in my mind, it is usually refined and sometimes transformed through the daily conversations that Francie and I share. It is such a blessing to have a creative friend that shares and inspires me in my crafting adventures.

So who inspires you? Take note: I did not ask what, but rather who. There are many ways to be inspired, but for many of us there is that one person that can get your creative juices flowing and push you on to the next level. Even if you are not a crafter, you need that someone in your life that moves you onward and upward.

For me, upward to the things of God is not just important, it is crucial. In my spiritual life one of the greatest blessings I have is my son, Alex. Today I would like to share his blog, STAND, with you and I do hope that you will follow it regularly. It will inspire you in your walk with Christ and transform your thinking ...from the ordinary to the extraordinary! Meet him here at: Enjoy and be blessed!

And one last note: Tuesday Treasures is once again upon us and we are celebrating SPRING!!! So hurry on over to The Odd Sparrow for some great spring savings of 20% off our Tuesday category and don't forget to shop at Shabby Lane too!
