I took some time recently to update my inspiration board.  When I first posted the board on my wall, the idea was to change it frequently, as I collected bits and pieces of inspiring ephemera.  I had a baby- so that plan changed!  However, during a recent nap time, I took an hour, and sat down with a pile of magazines, and started cutting.  It was a playful and relaxing process, and it was actually a great exercise in seeing where my inspiration is coming from these days.  Lots of beautiful pictures with great light, images of artists, perfectly styled still life and rural settings.  I highly recommend indulging in an hour of this sort of play- it can lead to some interesting revelations!

    I love the inspiration boards, too! I keep an inspiration book full of clippings and colors and quotations, but I've wanted something…bigger for a while. Might try this!
