One way to help regenerate the creavite juices is to make an inspiration board. I've been slowly filling up a folder on my computer with images that I've spotted on blogs, in magazines & such that speak to me. I complied a file with my top favorites. This has really helped me stay focused in what I'd like to achieve in our house.
Take a look at the kitchen & Charlie's room. We've got lots to do...but one day we'll get there! Rome wasn't built in a day, right?
I have room to place paint swatches once I get there.
Hardest part of the process if you ask me.
Here is where I found some of the pics & inspiration. The 2 women's blogs I think are super super creative women & very inspirational. Ohdeedoh is just a playground for ppl w/ children. I look at that blog DAILY!! It's like my "smokebreak"!
