Things are moving a bit slowly as I'm trying to get back in the groove of things after the Gem Show and after being down for a few days with a bit of a cold.

I was able to finally get some jewelry pics edited that I've been sitting on for a while (some older than others!) and have been learning more of my Elements 10 (Editing with Elements Class from Brandi - it's awesome!) and also using some online editing sites such as Pixlr and PicMonkey. I'm getting quicker,....or less picky,....not sure which is the case actually.
I've noticed that at different times of the year my design style seems to go all 'Southwest' with a major Bohemian flair. With maybe just a dash of 'Gypsy' style (or whatever you want to call it) thrown in for good measure. I'm wondering why?
What influences us with our trends and tastes?
I wonder if, at times, it's something subconscious (??)
How about you? Do you find that your work, your art, your wardrobe, or the styles of things you like seem to go back and forth through out the year(s); possibly with the seasons, the different moods of the year(s), with different events around the world, or with age (gasp!) and things like that?
There's all sorts of Art Deco stuff that's been going on for a while now (it was everywhere during NY Fashion week) and there's some things about it I like and some that I really cannot stand.

Personally I'm drawn a bit more to rugged textures with neutral and/or deep colors than I am to geometric designs in mint green and lilac with silvery-mirrored accents!
(I know - I'm exaggerating a bit there - but you get what I mean!)

(This is more me,...well, sort of!)
It's interesting to see things as they come back in style again and again and how there's modern twists and takes on them, isn't it?

(I actually think these are pretty funky and cool!!)
That said, what time periods affect your designs, your art work, your style or clothing, your home decor or your travels?
I'd love to hear what influences your style, your tastes and what things you're most drawn to and why.
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Stylin' Through the Years,....
