Inspiration Is Everywhere!

I'm always been inspired by the blogs I visit and the people behind them (that would be you) and wanted to share a couple of of the ones that have (inadvertently) added to my mile long "To Do" list. (This is a good thing by the way) So be on the look out for future posts on these topics:

1. Jessica at Chronically Vintage has a weekly snapshot post where she shares vintage images found on Flickr. This has inspired me to scan in and share a few of the hundreds of family pictures my in-laws gave me during our recent trip to New York.

2. Carmen at Whoopidoo...ings recently posted about going back to her scrappy beginnings. This post really inspired me to refocus my scrapbooking on the pictures, not the paper and embellishments.

3. Lemondrop Marie at Lemondrop Vintage wrote a lovely post on coats recently. This got me thinking about 3 particularly fabulous vintage coats I have in my possession so I'm going to get them out and try a little photo shoot. :D

4. Molly at A Bit O' Shine posted about her recent creative (and cheap) closet makeover. This got me looking at my clutter in a whole new way and I hope to get more creative in my space very soon!

So what has inspired you lately? Do you have enough links to share with the rest of the class? Share them in your comment, I love finding inspiration!

And now for a little fun. For all of the "Mad Men" fans out there, here's one for you courtesy of Saturday Night Live:

"Don Draper's Guide To Picking Up Women"

Have a great day everyone!

Awwwwww, you are too sweet for words, Maggi, thank you very much for listing Chronically Vintage's Saturday Snapshots as a source of inspiration for you. Knowing that has truly brightened my day, and means so very much to me.

Thank you for splendid inspiration that your site always provides me (a "hope to get into scrapping one day" gal) with.

Huge hugs,
♥ Jessica

Ha, that clip is too funny! I love it.

I wish I was inspired to mom is a scrapbooking addict. Her house has a full scrapbooking room. She just finished my sister's life anthology (10 volumes) and mine's coming up next :) I think that's why I'm not motivated more to scrapbook--she's doing it all for me! Oh well, she's a pro!
