This past weekend I was excited to receive my pre-ordered copy of Creative Bloom by Jen Swift, a fellow Kelly Rae Robert's flyer. I've truly enjoyed all the artists and blogs I have found by way of Kelly Rae Robert's past e-course. Sometimes it's hard to explain why we gravitate towards one blog or artist, but Jen was one of them. Her blog is well written (and updated regularly--something I'd like to be better about), her wire art was something new (and I seem to collect hobbies), and it was just really fun to see someone "real" in the final stages of getting a book published (I just LOVE craft books). She's been a great inspiration. Her success makes me feel as if I can dream big, too. So I knew I wanted to get her book when it came out, if anything just to be supportive of a fellow flyer. So I snatched up one of her pre-order packages and I'm so glad I did. The package arrived beautifully wrapped with precious wire art gifts and her book. I have found the book to be wonderfully inspiring, both in it's words and projects. The flower pictured here is my attempt at her first project. It turned out pretty neat. So thank you to Jen for your creative inspiration!
