Inspired Quotes + Giveaway!

If you have not looked at Pinterest then you have not seen all the wonderful inspiration for designs and crafts. One of the things that I have found are awesome inspirational quotes that help me remember to be grounded. But be warned once you start you can't stop.

Sometimes we get so wrapped up in the everyday business of getting through the day we forget some of the most important things.




Karen

I love the bulletin boards! I think something like that would be perfect in my scraproom to keep inspiration up!

I liked the bulletin boards- so many I've seen are over the top with decorative fabric. The burlap was perfect! And, it surprises me, but I liked the fashion update. My upscale fashion these days is a "dressy" tshirt. Yeah. Pathetic. But, I found that some of the upcoming "looks of fall" are things I actually have or like. Unusual.

I thought the bulletin boards were really neat.

Scrapycandy said...

I have to admit that "Go Big Red" was exactly like something I would do. What a wonderful idea! But all the blog pages were terrific! Thanks Karen!

Maggie Muggins said...

Loved the Fall Fashion update. All perfect colors for me!!! I'm not daring enough to try bamboo though. I want to. But it scares me.

Nathalie said...

The Fall Fashion was a great post and the Burlap boards were a great DIY idea!!! Thank you for the chance and the inspiration!

SaraBug said...

I thought the custom team onsie. Great idea thanks for sharing.

Bcambron said...

I love the scrapbook wall, great idea and great way to display lots of precious pictures and change the beautiful SEI papers out. It is so hard to pick out which papers to use and this is a great way to use them all.

donna ellis said...

I am creating a new scraproom and love your inspirations bulletin boards are superpecki

Bcambron said...

The onsie is really cute and of course the beautiful model. Love the tumble dye.

Leanor said...

my absolute favorite was the onsie. Looks better than anything I would find in a store for sure.

Gwen Aldredge said...

This was a great week, and I was impressed with each idea. however, the large "scrapbook" bulletin boards are m y favorite. i have two children in college, and this would be a great step up over the typical plain bulletin board.

Here's hoping I'm lucky; I'd love to win.

Abby said...

I love Tuesdays, what a great idea. I am going to have do this in my scrapbooking room, when I get one. Thank you for sharing.

amy dudrey said...

I love the quotes, i use the " all who wander are not lost' as my signature in my email, I have a very gypsy like soul.

sammies02 said...

The Team Onsie or the Bulletin Boards, it's a coin toss. Love them both.

Lynne said...

The custom onesie was definitely my fave!! Love how you used the Tumble Dye to make this cute outfit!!

valjacks7 said...

Actually, I found that you have a very gifted mind! I love the Bulletin Boards, but the Inspirational Quotes are so cool! My mini-bulletin board is always decorated with quotes that inspire me for different areas of my life - and now I have another source to pull from... Thank you for sharing.

LynnSevillana said...

I love the onesie idea! Very clever!

Christa said...

Angelin Week said...

My fave are the bulletin boards. Such a great idea! I did love the post on the clothes too! Excited about pulling out my warm clothes for fall & winter. And doing a little shopping for some new things too. Thanks for the inspiration!

littlen said...

the bulletin boards were my favorite.

arspoetica said...

I usually avoid 'seasonal colors' because their limited palettes feel so uninspiring to me. But the grouping you put up? Now, that was color! Phlox, honeysuckle, emberglow, bamboo . . . even the names sparked, then flared and finally blazed in technicolor! Inspiration galore!!!!!
