Inspiration Board

I know many of y'all are on Pinterest, but I was wondering if y'all also have a physical inspiration board.  I keep mine in the art studio.  Sometimes my eyes need to rest on something other than my current project, so I find it helpful to have an inspiration board to give my eyes and brain a break.

I display ideas for projects, notes and cards from friends, Bible verses from my child's Sunday School Class, or anything else that inspires me or makes me smile.  Look carefully; you might see something that you have sent me ;P

My inspiration board is made up of an Ebay-found memo board made from printed burlap, string, and upholstery tacks.  I bought the tabletop easel from Exposures almost twenty years ago.

I keep a small bowl with push pins on my work table.



Please share with me what you display on your inspiration board!

Until next time...

Blessings!

  1. That is SO cool. I don't have an inspiration board (not even on Pinterest yet!) but I love the idea of it. maybe I'll start one. The most that I do is tack my favorite quotes about creativity on the wall by my art desk.

  2. Pretty cool, Ricki:)
    I need one of those in my office. I think it's always nice to have a visual, so often we use our computers for that, however to feel fabric, texture etc, so much more inspiring!

  4. I adore your board. I've been looking for another one. I have one and it's almost full, but I don't want to remove anything so I want another one. Love the burlap.

  12. That is so very organized of you. I have inspiration but it ends up all over the house. I wish I were as organized as you.

  13. Wow, your inspiration board is so nice and organized. I have one too, but doesn't look as neat as yours. Hope you're feeling better my dear!

  14. That is some great inspiration board! I have a handmade bulletin board in my new Studio (my latest post) & it's almost bare right now, but not for long. I also have an Inspiration Book (here's the link: http://cas-anoasisinthedesert.blogspot.com/2011/04/my-inspiration-journal.html), & it's one of my favorite things.

  16. Ricki Jill,
    Yes, I do have an Inspirational Board. Yours is so cute. I have so many things on mine, but one of the things you might like. It is a DAISY made out of hard paper, and it reminds me of Daisy Cottage, the very first blog that I ever had the pleasure of looking at. I loved that blog and visited it every day. It is where I actually found you, my friend. I think it is a wonderful idea to have an inspirational board. Thanks for sharing yours.
