My creative journey is often inspired by products. I am giddy about new product releases and collections from my favorite brands. As soon as I have new goodies in hand, I find myself on a beautiful creative journey. New products are so great for refreshing my creative juices.
The web is also a great venue for finding a consistent stream of inspiration. Pinterest alone is the perfect playground to discover an array of resources that stimulate creativity. So many color combinations, patterns and designs that inspire the creative mind. Lurking on the web can lead to a surge of inspiration.
Creativity also comes from others. Many times seeing something from another designer becomes an inspiration item for me. I often can reimagine the item for my own creations. I strive to add my own spin on each design being careful not to copy the original design. I am constantly seeking innovative styles and techniques to try out while crafting. Seeing ideas from others often stimulates my creative juices.
My craft room is a wonderful place of inspiration for me. Vibrant and bright colors bring me so much happiness. It is my own space that I use to create, experiment and tinker with products. It's a dedicated space that is well stocked with paper, my die cutting machines and loads of embellishments. Here's a peek at where all of the crafty magic takes place.
