My Inspiration Board


Thought I would show you a little snapshot of my inspiration board. I like to fill my board with bits and pieces of my life and little things I love. I include notes from friends, photos of my family, paintings my 4 year old does for me, scraps of fabrics I like, patterns and pictures of all sorts of things which inspire me. I like to change my board every month but sometimes there are just some things that I never remove - I just move them on the board and continue to treasure and love them.

Very inspirational!
I always wanted to start an inspiration board as well, I have tons of things I've collected and have stored but never got around to it. When I get my office re-decorated in the next few weeks I plan on making that a priority!
Thanks for sharing!

Love the colors! Definitely recognize some favorite patterns too. I started to say, "hey, I have the same notecards," but then I remembered :)

I spy Fifi, a pink Smeg, a merc groaning with chrome and friendship.

Yes Courtney, that notecard is one of the things that never gets removed; it just gets moved around on the board each month. It's special!

Thank you Marta! Some months it is so jammed full of things I love and sometimes I find it hard to take it all down at the end of the month! But I make myself and I do take a photo before I take it down as a record.

You can submit it to Holly from Decor8 for her 'Mood Board' contest. Deadline next Monday, June 11. I guess you know...

An inspiration board is such a great way to keep everything you love in one place. I think people save all the little things that they love, but it just gets put in a drawer. The board is actually pretty as well:)
