My Snow Day of “doing nothing” turned out to be creative and inspiring

It just goes to show you…there’s always something to inspire you.  All you have to do is look for it.

A couple weeks ago, during the “big blizzard” JUNO, we decided to play it safe and close all our Hammertown stores.  That left me with a whole day of no real commitments so I decided to spend my snow day doing nothing at my daughter, Dana’s, house with her and my granddaughters.

Of course, regardless of the weather or ANYTHING else, I always have my iPhone with me.  Suddenly, I found myself looking at everything in Dana’s house with a fresh eye and I started taking photos of all the things that inspired me.  Obviously, she is MY daughter so we do share a similar design sensibility…no doubt some “Hammertown” rubbed off on her.  But, our tastes in some things are very different and I’m always pleasantly surprised by her creativity.  So, with all that said, here’s my “Snow Day in Pictures”.

So…the next time you’re stuck anywhere — on the train, at the doctor’s office, in an airport, even in your own home — take a look around.  You’ll see “design” everywhere…you’ll see creativity and inspiration.  All you have to do is look for it.
