Many many years ago I started collecting images and cut outs of magazines that gave me any sort of inspiration. These were mostly cloths and hairstyles. I collected them in a thick yellow notebook.
My husband was always joking that he needed to replace my yellow book with a nice brand new one where I can continue my style inspirations...but I could not let go of my beloved book. It had been with me for over 10 years by then!!! (I wish I had a picture of my sweet book, it was like a dear friend to me) Then when there were no more blank pages in it I had to move on. Moving on is always hard;-)
I now have two large ring binders full of collages. It has been my own Pinterest. My kids can't figure out why I find so much joy cutting magazines to pieces and putting them in my book. They think it is the weirdest habit and seems boring to them.
Again a very long time ago I started doing the same thing digitally (my very own digital Pinterest). I have thousands!!! of pictures of craft inspirations, pictures of cloths, jewelry, hair styles and home decoration. I take screen shots of images, colors, color combos...anything that I "can't live without" or strikes a chord in my heart and organize them in folders.
I will feature many of them here. I will also import them all (ok, maybe just the BEST ones, since I have thousands) into my Pinterest page.
Hoping you will too find some inspiration with these!
Here are just a few examples of my dream style:
[PLEASE NOTE: I love love giving credit to people. I collected these for my own inspiration. Some of them a very long time ago and I did not record the source. If any of these amazing creations are your very own, please let me know and I will give you the appropriate credit for it! And in the meantime...THANK YOU for inspiring me!!!]
