Hello from Moscow

I just wanted to do a quick update.

I am able to get internet at coffee shops here in the city. It is totally gorgeous! You would never have guessed that they have only had capitalism for 20 year based on the amount of shops, cars and restaurants. It is amazing!!!

I have taken lots of pictures and I plan on having a 'moscow-inspired-blitz' full of cards that were inspired by things here in Russia. The city has so many cool buildings, textures and sculptures that I feel totally artisitically inspired.

Have you ever felt that way about a trip or a city?

We head to St.Petersburg (Leningrad) on Wenesday, which is supposed to be every more inspiring. I can't wait to share all the pictures with you!!!

Don't forget that the 20th starts Little Paper Shop teasers and Julia really outdid herself this month!!!

Well I'm off to explore,

Elyssa

You lucky girl!! I am so happy for you to hear you're having a fabulous time. I felt that way about the art/ creativity/ inspiration when DH and I went to Italy. All that amazing stuff to see, architecture, even in shops and the attitude of the people in the cities and towns -- the feeling of being "foreign" makes you view things differently. I am babbling. It is just a sensory dream -- I can't wait to see what you create when you're home.
