“We are the music makers, and we are
the dreamers of dreams…”
Willy Wonka - Willy and the Chocolate Factory
I am in awe of the colors, the shapes, the perceived textures presented in the movie. I know that as a set designer I would have had a hay day working on the candy garden. I probably would have gained a few pounds as I bought/made candy looking for inspiration too.
I am trying really hard to lose weight right now and can’t afford to gain. That is why I like to take inspiration for my craft from my surroundings, quotes and insights.

But it's not limited to those either. I receive some of my strongest inspiration from my family and the lives that they lead/led. There are many attitudes, graces, work ethics and stubbornness, that I emulate throughout my week: my grandmother's patience, my grandfather's work ethic, my father's love of fun, and my mother's persistence.
Where do you find inspiration?
