Sharing is Caring

I thought I would share what I do when I get stuck for ideas because everyone can get stuck for ideas every now and again. Whenever I need that little bit of inspiration I will of course go on you tube (who doesn't, right?) and as I ooh and aaahhh at all the wonderful talented ladies that have posted their beautiful and latest paper creations. I also turn to "my deco file."  What is this deco file I speak of you may ask? Well its only the greatest idea I have ever borrowed from the beloved DOMINO Magazine (may it R.I.P). The idea is, every time I come across an interior decorating photo that I absolutely love, I save it to my deco file and later when I am in the mood to re-vamp my place or in some cases I am assisting a friend with theirs I open up my little file and dream up a million and one possibilities (o.k. so I'm exaggerating but it does help!). Another one of my little obsessions is the Anthropologie website, need I say more? I am fortunate to have an Anthropologie store near my home and I am almost embarrassed to admit that I can't help wander into it every now and again just to soak in the displays. Here are a few of my favorite pics from my "deco file." Enjoy!

Well I hope you found the pics above as adorable as I did?  I would love to know what are some of the  ways you get your creative wheels turning? See ya soon!

A little Intro...

Hi Everyone! Starting up my first blog ever!!! Yippy! I had considered opening up a blog some time ago but I don't know exactly why I never went through with it? Oh well, I am doing it now and I suppose it would only be right to intro myself. Let's see?......Addicted to all things scrapbook/craft related,  I have a passion for home decor and a love for crafty DIY projects. I adore almost all things vintage. My idea of a perfect La-Dee-Da day consist of a visit to Anthropologie and all my favorite local craft stores (after I've had a great cup of coffee of course!) and stocking up on inspiration, glitter, ribbons, paper, ink and anything else that might catch my fancy. It's amazing how one artsy craft can lead you to another, but it's all so much fun that I can't help myself and so I keep playing and exploring because you never know what you might come up with next. A few years ago I decided to take the plunge into scrapbooking and I haven't looked back since! Yet I must confess that before pretty scrapbook paper made its way into my heart there was pretty fabric and beautiful paint and so Interior Design is my first love. Well enough about me but before I go let's just say that one day its all about paper and the next might be all about home decor, who knows? one thing is for certain, I hope to inspire and I hope to be inspired in the days to come so keep checking in to see what I post next! Bye!.
