I am often inspired by things I see on the web. And I wanted to share some of those with you today. And we will do this “Storytellers” style so I am explain what I find so darn inspiring about them.
First – let me say that I long for organization. I love the process of organizing but I am HORRIBLE at the upkeep. Which means I am organized and not organized at the same time. So when I see pictures of terribly organized spaces, I want to follow suit – and I also know that mine will only look like that for a day or so. But still I aspire. So here is something I found today that gave me goosebumps.
This picture from Martha Stewart Crafts Department is full of crafty goodness. 500 boxes of crafting supplies – labeled and in some cases color coded (!!!!) and waiting to be used for some upcoming and as yet to be discovered crafting genius. This is like Nirvana to me – to have all of this available for use and ready to go and easy to find and – ok I am getting a little too excited about plastic boxes you can find at the dollar store. But oh my goodness I love this.
The second bit of inspiration for today came from an old blog post by a favorite scrapbooking blogger named Dawn McVey. She posts these color challenges called Raspberry Suite Color Challenges. Part of what I love about these challenges is that the inspiration always comes from somewhere other than scrapbooking…like this one is a vase of flowers.
Now think of the possibilities of this. You can take these colors and use them in a variety of ways.
You can make a card:
You can decorate a room:
See how the walls were the green and she accented with the “raspberry” color??? Cool right?
Or you can take and use it for just one element in a room:
What inspired you today?
