I'm working on new painted and stitched designs for kitchen, entertaining and holidays. My designs are inspired by words and inspirational quotes and I'm certainly not alone! (see end of post for cookie info)
Another Designer friend is inspired by words to create her art and loves to research the meaning of the word, the feeling it conveys and additional words to get a message across. KELLY HOERNIG, says; "I have to create and words are an important part of the inspiration. Discovering new "out of the box" ways to put the two together are always a challenge for me. I want to take you on an artistic journey so you can discover your own imagination by seeing things differently and through my eyes."

While not a new trend, the use of words and inspirational quotes is incredibly popular in home decor, stationery and design right now. Maybe it's the need for hope and happiness in our society, maybe it's the new year and a need for change, or just the desire to make your feelings known. Whatever the reason; my Trend research this month allowed me to find several wonderful ways for you to get your own message across.

Oh! 2 year old Isabella and I made the cookies at the top of this post using Sillycone molds. Even though the cookie weren't perfect, (someone got a little zealous and overfilled the molds) we had a great time making them. I like making ice cubes with the molds for parties to really personalize the decor.
I do have a few of the molds left in stock. If you're interested in purchasing a set, email me for information at: CindyRippe@gmail.com or watch for them in my CHERISHED STUFF shop . What words would YOU create with them?
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD...Psalm 19:14
