Creative Inspiration…

Where does your creative inspiration come from?

I LOVE to browse scrapbooking blogs, magazines, Pinterst…but I always feel inspired when I can see texture and color in person.

Like last weekend. I traveled with my mom, sister and daughter to visit my grandmother in Utah…a girls weekend.

I love these little getaways; our outings always provide lots of creative stimulation.

During this particular trip, we stopped at Thanksgiving Point, they have the most beautiful shops.

I’m probably not supposed to…but I pulled out my camera phone and snapped some photos.

I love the fringe on the blanket in the photo above, the crushed yo-yo’s on the quilt, and of course the pillow. But I was thinking more along the lines of scrapbooking and paper crafting. How fun would it be to line a layout with fringed-style trims? I also loved the paper chandelier (pictured below); I invision papers pinned up along a scrapbook layout.

We’ll have to see what I come up with using these photos as inspiration.

Where do you find your crafty inspiration?
