Inspiration Friday - Inspired by Treating Yourself

Sometimes our lives get so bogged down helping others that we forget a very important person — ourselves! Take some time and treat yourself for a better way of life. Your family and friends will thank you for taking time out for YOU!

I searched the web for a variety of images pertaining to treating ourselves, and here is a look at a few of my favorite finds:

My Favorite Things has some fantastic products that will allow you to relax and create. Let's take a look at some awesome projects that will inspire you to create designs dedicated to the taking time out for yourself.

Yoonsun knows that a cup of tea will give you the chance to unwind and reflect. The Bold Blooms stamp set looks so pretty with the Cup of Tea stamp set and Tea Party Die-namics!

One of my favorite ways to treat myself is with a bouquet of flowers. I just LOVE scouring the discount flowers at the grocery store. As Julia's card featuring Bold Blooms says, "You deserve to be celebrated!" So grab a bouquet and enjoy.
