THe Beauty Of Nature..

It's that time of year when I get the itch to de-clutter my surroundings... The Biggest task I think is going through the hundreds of photos on my computer... I have been telling myself I need to organize all the photos and get them on discs.. Mind you I have been debating with that voice in my head about this for years.. You see I am one of those people that was afraid to switch to digital a few years back.. The thoughts running through my head, what if the computer crashes and I lose the photos, what if my memory card malfunctions and I lose all the photos on it... I had some pretty crazy schemes going on in my head.So with those thoughts came the need to save and store every photo taken on the computer and lets just say I own 3 memory cards filled to capacity..Anyways, that is why this organizing task is well overdue.I am still waiting for my photo/computer expert/goddess to come to my rescue, HINT,HINT...(you know who you are!) Being easily distracted when it comes to a task I start, I took a break from organizing and played around with a few photos I had taken at the botanical gardens in Rockford, Illinois... I think there is a certain magic to the outdoors, it offers limitless options for inspiration.If you really stop and think about it we are all lucky to be able to step outside our door everyday no matter the weather outside and find some little hint of inspiration for life and decorating.. So tomorrow, take a moment and just admire what nature has given us. Whether it be the patterns frost makes on your windowpanes or the beauty of a blooming flower on a warm summer day, I bet you can find something that makes you smile.. So many of my own projects are inspired from the simplest of things. Inspiration is all around us.. So that's my two cents for today.  So what are your "inspirations" from nature?  I'd love to know!
