Arrow IC377 ~ Designs by Lucinda {02-23-13}

Inspiration Challenge 377 ~ Designs by Lucinda

This week’s Inspiration Challenge site ~ Designs by Lucinda ~ was suggested Mary ( stampercamper ) who owns several of Lucinda’s pins … and I was thrilled at the idea, since I too own some of Lucinda’s art work that I purchased to support a local non-profit organization.

In the early 1980’s due to unforeseen circumstances Lucinda Yates and her young daughter found themselves homeless. Knowing there was something she could do to help herself overcome poverty and homelessness, Lucinda used her creativity and drive to launch a successful line of fashion jewelry. One day she designed a simple pin in the shape of a house. That was the moment Lucinda knew she could help others. After 20 years, we still refer to this as the Eureka moment.

The first House Pins would become the perfect fundraiser for a local shelter. The idea behind the pin was to raise money for the homeless, and at the same time, create a greater awareness of homelessness in her community. The pin was a success on both counts. Lucinda’s experience of homelessness would come full circle and a company with a conscience was born… Designs by Lucinda.

Lucinda created a cause-related business dedicated to creating affordable handcrafted jewelry of the highest quality for the purpose of bringing financial help and awareness to non-profit organizations and their causes worldwide … true inspiration.

For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I've uploaded five of my favorites … so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration.

The rest of you, remember to let us know which item from Designs by Lucinda that inspired you.

Use the keyword: IC377 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.

stampercamper’s sample ~ Bloomin’ Marvelous

My sample ~ Follow Your Heart

IC377 Gallery

How to Play ~ View the attached images. You may be inspired to recreate the pieces ~ but that isn't necessary ... get your inspiration from the colors, layout, style or 'theme'. Just enjoy wherever your inspired creative journey takes you. Remember, if you are inspired by the creation of another artist, please do not use print-outs of the art in your creation or directly copy their work. Make the inspiration piece your own. Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong' and there is no time limit for uploading your card for the challenge. There are no rules, so let your creative juices run wild ~ be *inspired* and go get stamping!

Don't forget about No Upload Sunday - Let's give the gallery moderators a day off and not upload on Sunday (unless, of course, you are a Fan Club member - yet another reason to spend a little money on your favorite site). Also, remember to link to your SCS gallery on this thread. Thank you for joining me on this inspiration journey.
