A Glimpse of my Inspiration
I love seeing the pin boards, mood boards or inspiration walls of others, nothing quite like a glimpse into someone else's special keepsakes or creative thinking.
My board is right next to my desk on a windowsill and it's full of things that I really love seeing. It is formed from a collection of business cards, invites, tags and random knick-knacks that I like. The frame is an oldie that I bought years ago, I also used it for our wedding inspiration board.
Let me tell you about a few of them:
oh hello friend tags: It's no secret that I love Danni's work. When I order stationery from her shop it is always beautifully packaged. Looking at her work inspires me to be creative.
Lauren Wallett's Malva Card: A couple of years ago I went to Malva in Joburg - seeing little Jozi Star's (that's the doggie) face is just the cutest thing.
The Pretty Blog's Card: I am a big fan of the blog and how hard their team works. Plus, I love the chevron print.
Sarah from Urban Lace's Invite: Sarah got married last year and I worked on a range of goodies for her wedding. The invite is designed by the talented Amelia of Whimsy fame. The colours, layout and 'prettyness' makes this one a keeper.
Charms and Trinkets: Scrabble letters, a magnet or two, cabochons and a range of knick-knacks. I love these random bits and pieces. A few of them are from the Hey Cherry girls when they had a market stall, others are really just odd finds or gifts from friends.
Do you have a mood board or special things that you keep?
