Organize your Stuff: Week 7 (round 4): Ideas part 1 & WOYWW

For those What's On Your Workspace Wednesday-ers...Here is my workspace… chaos as usual!
 
This week is Ideas and Inspiration... and how to store it.  Where do you get your creative ideas? What gives you your mojo the ability to go-go?

When we started scrapbooking, Creative Me and the Inner Hoarder were the Magazine Queens! However, these days, not so much. (However, do not even think of touching my Simple Scrapbook collection, or the Inner Hoarder will carve out your heart…with a spoon! (vague Kevin Costner Robin Hood reference…sorry)).

Today’s Card inspiration is from Tuesday Trio. This is my Design Team entry for Sketch # 67... a love card.



This is Sketch # 66 (as we did not post it last Tuesday!) ...a blue and white card.

This is where we get most of our inspiration these days, the net. There are hundreds (if not thousands) of talented people and sketches and challenges out there to help you get out of that rut and get crafting!

Speaking of which, Memorial Weekend, we will be partnering up with always inspiring Operation Write Home for their card blog hop to support the troops! There is still time to join, if you want to share too (registration deadline is May 25th).

Good thing I'm not taking a picture of my work area today...it's a jumble of red, white, silver, football madness. Did manage to get one LO completely finished yesterday...and DD helped come up with journaling ideas for a couple other ones that just need title and journaling and some frou frou (yes, I decided I can do frou frou on a girl's football album!). Oh, and the CD of photos in the back of the album is a great idea! I also have video montages that we bought at the end of each season that can go in there, too!

Your space is sooo organised - love it. I have lots of drawers and space but everything ends up on my desk in heaps.
your Cards are good too

I use to be the same way about magazines, but I had to say ENOUGH! I now have my problem under control :) Love your cards! Sketches are pretty sweet.

Looks like you have some good creative stuff going on. :) I love the blue on the second card - the flowers just pop right off the card. So pretty!

Nothing's better than scrappy chaos, though, is it? Love this!

Tracy said...

Your desk is tidy compared to mine right now, lol.
Pretty cards, like your take on the sketches.

Yah, the blogs for me I guess, and a deadline - very inspiring! Your acrylics collection is huge. Got any wood mounts?

I remember that quote! Alan Rickman at his very best. I use sketches - lots! And magazines with post it notes. Lots! Lisa-Jane #111
