    That is so pretty! I love your blog. 🙂

    What inspires me? Everything! I can be outside and get so many ideas usually for my bath goodies for my company…lol….the names, the ingredients. Even looking at food or watching a movie I’ll be inspired to create something new.

    These two quotes really inspired me when I was creating my company,”Margarita Bloom”…they are just so true!

    “In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.” ~ Coco Chanel

    “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”
    ~ Coco Chanel

    That which we persist in doing becomes easier, not that the task itself has become easier, but that our ability to perform it has improved.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson

    I play the notes as they are written, it is God who makes the music.

    J.S Bach

    OK, there are two of my favs! TINIEL

    There are so many things to be inspired by in life both in the beautiful and the horrible, yet I find what is horrible to affect my vision the deepest as it forces me to seek out the beauty.

    Here are a few quotes I enjoy:

    “First say to yourself what you would be;
    and then do what you have to do.”

    “You cannot dream yourself into a character: you must hammer and forge yourself into one.”
    Henry D. Thoreau

    My favorite inspirational saying is:

    “Do more than belong: participate. Do more than care: help. Do more than believe: practice. Do more than be fair: be kind. Do more than forgive: forget. Do more than dream: work.”

    William Arthur Ward

    I believe that all good inspiration comes from God. I also believe that we must share it to be of any worth. I am inspired from so many that share their talents that it would be impossible to name them all.
    My favorite (creating) quote is “necessity is the mother of all invention”. That seems to be the main reason I create–out of necessity, sometimes to create something I need, or out of the need to create.

    ok, I know this is a cheesy thought, but I still like it.

    “We may not have it all together, but together we have it all.” I guess it just fits my life . . .

    The bag is darling, too : )

    cheating a little, but this inspired me. Don’t know who wrote it, it came in a kit of Bare Escentuals makeup I just bought…

    “I need to stop taking each day for granted. I need to live in this very moment. As the warm sun hugs my shoulders and the high tide washes against my feet, I am reminded…life is beautiful. My life is beautiful.”

    I’ve found many inspirational quotes to inspire me over the years, but there’s always one I come back to: “Smile, it makes people wonder what you’ve been up to.” It used to give me a laugh in high school because I knew it actually worked, but now I’m older and a Mom I’ve found new value to a simple smile.

    “Rise to the challenge.”

    It’s not much, but most of the time, it’s all I need. Well, that and this AWESOME bag! Girl, you have more talent in your little finger than most people I know!

    WOO HOO i love a good contest!
    You have brains in your head.
    You have feet in your shoes.
    You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
    You’re on your own.
    And you know what you know.
    You are the person who’ll decide where to go.
    ~Dr. Seuss
    It’s a little cheesy and I am no sure if it’as inspiring to you but to me its all the inspiration i need :)!

    My two favorites come from Albus Dumbledore (actually J.K. Rowling 🙂 If dreaming up and writing that series isn’t inspiring, I’m not sure what is. 😀 BIG FAN!!!

    “The time will come when you have to make a choice between what is right and what is easy.”

    “It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”

    by no means inspirational, but Kayla and I had a good laugh over it.

    A man works from sun to sun
    but a womens work is never done.

    “The only way to get through life is to laugh your way through it. You either have to laugh or cry. Crying gives me a headache.” Marjorie Hinkley.

    “Try a little harder to be a little better.” Gordon B. Hinkley

    Doing vinyl as a business gives me the oppurtunity to hear/read a lot of quotes. These one’s seemed to stick out today.

    So many good quotes to choose from. Just one of my current favorites……

    “Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.” ~~ Mark Twain (1835 – 1910)

    Trying to work thru some fears to really step out of my comfort zone and change my life. In doing so I am reading this book… “Kissing A Frog, Four Steps to Finding Comfort Outside Your Comfort Zone”. by Sharlene Hawkes (great book!!)


    “You are the only person in the world you have complete control over. Excuses will never make you successful, no matter how good the excuse might be”.

    A couple of favorites:
    Life is one crazy thing after another…
    Love is two crazy things after each other!

    Happiness is a place between too little and too much.

    Have a nice day!

    I am going to have to say the most dear thing to me is my birth mother. She inspires me and motivates me to do better everyday to give our babies all they deserve and more. I found this quote for mother’s day that I gave to her and it touched my heart, so I thought I would share it for this. Its by Cheri Call.

    “When we both get up to Heaven I hope that we can say we delivered this child together. And will meet you there someday!”
