I know right know there was a collective Huh? among the bloggerdom.

Inspiration is a very fluid word and means very different things for very different people.
What inspires you? An athlete, your parent, your faith? I have a little story to tell you..

Way back when in art school... ::Entering dream sequence-insert chime music::

I now sit back on my rocking chair, roaring fire in the background with large golden retriever at my feet looking on at me basking in my sheer wisdom...well more like I'm typing at my desk at work at the one quiet time I have here) ...sorry back to art school, YES art school we had a class on how to make sketchbooks-this time I'm really not kidding-there were many who were miffed at the fact that they dropped a grand and a half to pay someone how to tell them to cut up paper and stick it in a book.

But I took advantage of this ridiculous excuse for college credit. Not only did I stick cut up pieces of paper in a book, I glued them down, burned them up ( I only set of the fire alarm that one time), sprayed them down and found things in the street to stick in my book too.

Pictures from mags and that I took
The one random POLICE LINE DO NOT CROSS tape that I found on my block (although in hindsight not a good idea to pick that one up so easily)

It's not only what inspires you, but what you do with your inspiration.

So I know you all are wondering what this has to do with anything?

Well generally in fashion you need an inspiration to make a collection. So what inspires me now?

Honestly, I'm not quite sure. It can be one picture, a color, five colors and I'll ride that horse until its dead. There will be a texture that I feel, some yarn that I see and I'll keep going off of that until something shinier comes along (kidding). So now I know all of you are wondering what this means for QVQ? I know it means there will be heather grey, burnt orange, mauve, eggplant purple and a hint of line green involved. It all makes sense in my head

You will just have to wait and see what comes out.
