I am going to be make this a regular part of my blog: Inspiration Ripple and have it once or twice a month. I love when I come across good things other people share so I want to pass it on too. My first thing to share is the black marker that wrote on the piece above.
Sharpie Professional – I picked this up at Home Depot, but what caught my eye was the package. It is blurry above as I forgot to take a photo of it before taking it out of the package. It says it marks on oily or wet surfaces. I am so impatient when it comes to writing on paint. I have ruined so many pens and markers that way. Well, I can tell you this one writes on wet paint! Yay! It wrote on that top piece when the paint was slightly wet still. I tried using it over oil pastels and it wrote, but not as well as it did on wet surfaces. It isn’t a fine point, but it is easy to write with on rough surfaces as I had texture to the paint. I am going to have to buy a few more as I see myself going through them quickly. I can’t remember the price on them, but I believe it was under $2 which is nice in comparison to some of the Sharpie brand markers. I have always wanted to try their Paint markers, but they range from $3 to $5 each. This is a nice alternative for now.
Art of Everyday Photography – A book by Susan Tuttle. Susan takes amazing photographs and is a great teacher. I have a photograph in it so I am especially excited about this book by Susan.

Fall Intensive Class – Kathie has always been my go to guide (read expert) on Homespun Seasonal Living. I took Kathie’s summer class and it was so inspiring and informative. Kathie is knowledgeable and open in teaching people to connect with the seasons. I am not really what I would call an outdoorsy person, but I do like to connect to nature and the cycles of each season so Kathie’s class was perfect for me as she taught me more ways to infuse the summer season into my daily life. I believe all levels of knowledge and interest would find Kathie’s seasonal intensive classes encouraging as well as useful in connecting with the season and making it a daily lifestyle.
