Most artists want to inspire just as much as wanting to be inspired!

I love how something so small can make one's mind run wild with much so, that you can't wait to get home and start creating!

A customer came in today and noticed a wire garland we made from vintage buttons...purely decorative. This got her mind going and creative thoughts flowing...
If you need some inspiration and help with the creative process ...try taking a workshop, this can open up your creative mind and inspire you!

In Gayle We Trust

In Gayle We Trust is the web show that is being filmed at Belles Nest. It's amazing to see the amount of people it takes to put on a production...this is just a two day shoot, and by the looks of things, one would say it's a big movie! This is great for our small town and for the store I hope! Parking was tough, the sidewalks were crowded with the crew, so opted not to stop...but I want to post some pictures, hopefully on Monday!
