Where do you find it? How does it impact your creativity?
I have a stack of books and magazines with pages tabbed and web sites saved in a folder called, "Inspiration". The web sites stay in that folder continually growing as I see something new and exciting. The books and magazines sit on the shelf or in a drawer (the books on the self need to be moved out of Liam's reach, but that is a story for another day). I think I've only made one thing from sewing books that I own and maybe 3-4 items from the knitting books and magazines.
The problem is that my inspiration is tucked away in a folder on my computer or on a bookshelf, or in a drawer. I think, "Oh, that would be cute to make." But, I never get around to making it.
My inspiration needs to be more visible, so when it catches my eye, I'm reminded that I really did want to make that item. So, I'm going to go through my Inspiration folder and print out pictures of the things I want to make, go through the books and magazine and copy the pictures and post them up on my wall.
Then, of course, I saw these this morning and added it to the folder instead of hitting print. Maybe I'll start printing tonight, after work.
