[who inspires you?]

It's an interesting topic, something that i've always pondered over. I would love to hear who inspires you to continue pursuing life the way you've led it - be it in the creative line, or just on the homefront. 
In the meanwhile, gotta post some pics! :)
Some blankies on order and a little sneak peek at a recent layout using the latest CHA papers for OA

Here's my take on my inspiration:

Being half of a creative duo, i've always been inspired by couples who are both in the creative line. I loved reading about how the worked together, how they kept the creativity alive, how they talked about their work together, and most of all, how they inspired each other. The most famous of these creative couples whom i'm greatly inspired by has to be Eames. This legendary modernist couple were inspiring to me, not just because they produced seminal architectural legacies, but also in the way the approached design. They were not just architects, they embraced design in all aspects - the eames furniture range, the eames playcards etc.... The best thing about them was how they brought design into their household as well. How Charles Eames used to design little games for his daughter, how they would travel widely and document all that they saw, how the little letters to his daughter demonstrated his love for design and also fun. Design wasn't just a job to them, it was their life. Their quirky approach to design and life is best represented in their most famous video clip "Powers of 10". 
So, i would love to be like the Eames, surrounded by creative people, living and breathing art and design, having creative experiences with my girls..... :)
