Perhaps above all other things, I'm deeply inspired by music.
I was, after all, an aspiring rock star:
Its not a small leap to from get "inspiration" to "oh, yea, MUSIC!" under these curcumstances.
So, I set to work with my Scrapbooking From The Inside Out Kit - INSPIRATION kit to make a layout about how music inspires me...
But, where to start? With the music that I write? The music I listen to? The music that I go searching for when I need some inspiration? The way I click-click-click through i-tunes looking for something that makes me tingle?
I settled for the music that I reach for when I'm creating, which is surprisingly low key compared to a lot of what is out there today...its kind of a 70's or 70s-inspired, mostly acoustic, highly meaningful lyric, girls who rock and guys with long hair, sing along with me sort of music plus the things I grew up on, like U2 and Aerosmith. I like to be able to sing along, sort of mindlessly, as I work.
I have a radio station on Pandora that is exactly the perfect mix: I call it "Lifes Been Good To Me So Far" radio...you know...after the Joe Walsh song.
Anyway...I've never really thought of myself as a pink and yellow kind of girl, but it all worked out rather amazingly:
That shirtless picture with the guitar slung over her back that Melissa Ethridge put on her cover is so seriously sexy. I love that shot!
REALLY in love with these pinwheel things...they are just the right kind of playful and fun, I think.
What is your favorite music? What do you listen to when you need to be inspired? Anything fun you want to share with the rest of us!?!!?
