Inspiration is everything.
As a crafter, designer and event planner, every idea starts with that tiny spark of inspiration. That feeling in your gut that u can do it, which rises into an image in your head of exactly how awesome whatever you are going to do its going to be. I always get a sense of urgency, my pulse quickening my lips forming into an excited grin, for those that live with me sometimes a shriek of excitement is even involved, and if I really think its going to be cool, I might even jump around.
That being said, it can sometimes feel hard to get that flash, or feel motivated to get up and get supplies, or start on something you aren't sure you will be able to pull off. I try to surround myself with things that make me happy and keep me inspired.
I came upon this awesome website called busy building things, through lifehacker, They are motivational prints for supa cheap!
$20 for a print, and $40 to get it with a frame! They are all really well designed and would look good on any wall. Belated Chanuka gift anyone?
Another cool way to go about it is a dream board of sorts.
I got the cool paperclip thing here. As you can see I use it for inspiration - pictures of my nieces, my most recent card design and some flourishes. It's also pretty great for things I need on hand - the stamps and gym schedule. Plus...it looks cool which is always a plus!
How do you stay inspired and motivated?
That's all folks!
