I'm Not A Poser Challenge Submissions

I want to thank everyone who felt inspired by the "I'm Not A Poser" Challenge. It got such a great response, and I think from time to time we need to be reminded to get up and DO something that we are dreaming about.

So today I want to share just a few of the many submissions I received (I wish I could share them all!).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I'll start off big. Sam decided to stop daydreaming about being an interior designer and took the leap and enrolled in design school. She's working at a residential interior design firm while she studies too. Making her dream a reality. Go girl.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Eileen just needed a liiittle push (nothing like being called a poser, right?) to give a DIY jewelry tutorial a try. Check out this gorgeous Anthropologie's Stormy Seas inspired necklace that she made!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jessamie noticed that a good portion of her pinterest boards had one key element, pink interiors. So she decided to start living her pins and add some pretty pretty pink to her living room. I love it, don't you?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Emily has started incorporating the beautiful things she finds online into her real life in a series called, Inspired to Incorporated. What a great idea, she does outfits, hairstyles, recipes... you name it. Check out this example she did inspired by a net-a-porter outfit.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Megan wanted to spruce up her daughter Madison's bedroom. She enlisted the help of her mother in law and made this gorgeous pelmet box for the window. She also painted that beautiful abstract art (she's an artist but usually sticks to figurative pieces). Awesome job, Megan! Madison is a lucky girl.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Julia decided to step out of her comfort zone of neutrals and bring some color and excitement to her office. So she recovered her chair and painted up some pretty art! Gorgeous, don't you think?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Last month, Anna made time for a past hobby of hers and painted a canvas inspired by Cocoa and Hearts. The color and movement in the piece put such a smile on my face. I think it's the perfect addition to her breakfast nook!


Aren't these ladies inspiring?! Thank so much for sharing your projects with us.

Love this idea! As a fashion/design blogger I find myself gravitated to sooo many disparate elements, it's hard to keep focused! Just a reminder to tackle one thing at a time and move on from there...next up, a bright colorful sofa instead of the stalemate beige one I've been living with forever! Thanks for the inspiration...love your blog!

Peace. Love. LOL!

Funny for 2 seconds, i thought Anna's piece was one of mine. Pretty!
The only time i have issues with this is when someone starts to mimic another artist's work & SELL it.

That really is giving me a little nudge (okay fine, it's a giant SHOVE!) to get in to gear and jump on some of those projects I've been stockpiling...nothing like a little project envy to get you going, yeah? (c:

I'm so inspired! I need to go DO something, but first I need to lay in the sun - it's pool time. ;)
