Morning you guys — happy weekend! Do y’all go through phases where you feel more inspired than usual…when you just can’t get enough of new ideas, novel projects and things of beauty? The last few days have been like that for me. If you follow me on Pinterest, you might have noticed a bit of a pinning rampage this week as I devoured magazines, books and blogs, searching for images that made my heart skip a beat. I’ve of course been pinning like crazy to my Food, Glorious Food board and Setting the Table board as I work on recipe and entertaining concepts for my book, and my Kids’ Parties has recently become a personal obsession. When does this feeling of out-of-the-ordinary inspiration strike all of you? Is it from traveling to new places? Looking at art? Seeing a great film? There really is so much beauty all around us, and I find that it’s easy to get inspired if we just take the time to open up our eyes! Here are a few links that are inspiring me this week:

And if you’re planning a Cinco de Mayo party, don’t miss our fiesta guide from the past week! I invited the girls over for an early celebration, Chanel crafted Jumbo Papel Picado and Beaded Appetizer Skewers, and we rounded up the 10 best tacos you’re going to want to make.

    My husband is a huge inspiration for me and since we got married in 2010 I find myself being more creative and having more “bursts” of creativity that u speak of. He encouraged me to start my blog on fashion *my secret love* and I find myself thinking of ideas for the blog even when I’m trying to whined down for the night. A good coffee shop brings out hours of creativity of new posts, networking with bloggers, thinking up photo shoots. I love it and totally understand where ur coming from!
    Love the photo btw!

    I used to be really creative. As I grow up and become more focused on “grown-up” problems, I find it more and more difficult to come up with creative ideas. I love reading your blog, Camille, because it encourages me to look for inspiration every where. My problem is translating all these inspirations that I gathered into a creative idea.
