Recently, the subject of inspiration has been coming up a lot for me. Several people this week have asked me how I come up with the DIY ideas for this blog (and beyond) and it’s so hard/yet so easy to put my finger on it because the littlest of things will inspire me to create something. Sometimes it’s a raw material, sometimes it’s a color scheme, and sometimes it comes to me in a dream (yep, that really happened – this is the post I dreamed about). I write everything down and take lots of photos (always have your camera phone with you).
The point is… I am inspired by so many things around me (online and off) and I’m sure you are too. We all have our go-to systems in place when we feel stuck. So, I thought, today, it would be nice to have a conversation about inspiration. Where do you find inspiration? How do you take ideas from paper to real life? What kinds of things are you feeling most inspired by lately?
So in the comments below, please feel free to share something that’s inspiring you right now. And once you do that, scroll back up to take a look at a few things that are currently inspiring me…
