You're The Inspiration (Board)

I mentioned in my previous post: Getting Inspired and Board with Cinderella and The Monkees that I wanted to create my own inspiration board for my crafty space. Right now that board is a box where I toss odds and ends I want to use so I thought I would share a couple of awesome finished boards that have caught my eye recently. :D

And the fabulous Anya from Couture Millinery Atelier recently wrote a post with pictures of what is currently on her inspiration board. Check out her post My Inspiration Board for 2010.

If you have an inspiration board or know of a groovy one I need to see, I wanna know! :D Just leave me a link in your comments. :)

**side note: the Wonderland Swap is in full swing! And if you missed out this time, I have a little surprise for you coming soon that is for you crafties AND non-crafties. Yes, it's another swap but for right now the theme is Top Secret. Wonder what it could be? Hmmm...

Have a great day everyone! I'll see you tomorrow night after The Bachelor! :D


  1. Oh what a brilliant idea - I may have to put one together. I saw an AMAZING one on Happy Zombie a while back. I'll see if I can find it... found it :P Admire and drool.

    Am wondering what the new swap could be... hmmm... I'm definitely in though. Save me a space. A comfy one near the fire if you don't mind ;)

  2. Such a great idea! Thanks for sharing these, Maggi!

    Hope you're having a wonderful weekend with your sweet family!

  3. what a super idea, thanks for sharing:):)
    (...i'll send you asap the rak you win at yyam her blog...i've received your address from her)

  4. Okay my dear, whip out that board and lets get started- first grab everything and anything you have that's pink in your stash- flowers, rhinestones, material-(can you make yo-yo's), yarn (tie it into a bow!)- anything with dimension- these will be your accents. Then start going through your mags for pics you love that inspire you. The more pink the better- you love pink, so go for a pink theme! Add a little pInK glitter and maybe some pink paint around the edges and voila, your inspiration board will be done! Of course you'll neeed a photo or two of Toot, Chris, Alice (and Jake, can't forget him!!!) I wish I wa sthere to create one with you! I need to do this! xOxO

  5. They are all so fab! Love the Anything Goes board.

    Curious about your next swap, wonder what you are up to Sweet Maggi?????
