I am so inspired by the world around me--in every aspect of my life. I'm inspired to dress better after looking at fashion magazines. I'm inspired to be a better cook after reading cooking magazines. I'm inspired to keep my house looking beautiful after reading home magazines. And of course I'm inspired to be a better scrapbooker and photographer after reading magazines, blogs, websites and more on a daily basis. Seriously. I soak it in.
So I thought I'd share a few places to go online that are inspiring me right now.
- I'm continually amazed at the talent of my fellow board members and check each of their blogs every day. For links, just look over to the left.
- I check HER blog and HER blog and HER blog and HER blog every day for inspiration. And believe me, I get it!
- Some places I like to go for inspiration (that I don't think too many people think of) are sites that feature "best web design" such as www.coolhomepages.com. Click on the links that say "Color schemes" or "Photography" or "Very Clean" or "Typography". Just click through some of the thumbnails and you're sure to find something that inspires you.
- And of course my most favorite place to go is the Simple Scrapbooks Gallery. Oh my word, you guys are so amazingly talented. I just click thorugh that gallery and I'm SO ready to get my scrapbook groove on! Here are a couple of layouts that I'm in love with right now:
"How To Be Merry" by Stephanie Howell
"Smile" by SoBlessed (awesome use of type!):
And this Christmas ornament by Davinie:
The talents that other people posses just amaze me. Wow.
And as far as photography goes, there are a MILLION places (literally) that you can go to see beautiful photos. But I wanted to share just one site that I recently discovered that I'm addicted to! It's http://boston.com/bigpicture/. Whether you're a photographer or not, you'll love it.
