Inspiration Friday - Inspired by the Olympics

Tonight, Rio welcomes us all to the Games of the XXXI Olympiad. I don't know about you, but I enjoy the Olympics a great deal. It allows us all the chance to cheer for our country, celebrate victories, agonize over defeats, and learn about the world around us. And isn't it funny how we all become experts in sports we know nothing about? I love that!
Here at My Favorite Things, we have a pretty impressive team of our own — the MFT Creative Team. And one thing that's awesome about them is that they hail from all over the world. So today we inspire you with a parade of nations (Olympics-style) featuring our 22 crazy talented design team members from eight countries around the globe.
