Being creative is what we love. Sometimes it's the easiest job in the world, when ideas keep coming like running water. But it'll happen that you run dry, or it can be hard to get the ideas together, form and create anything.
In general it can be hard always to stay creative, both when making things or crafting, but also in daily life. This is something that requires you to feel inspired. I believe it's the single most important thing to anything and everything you do in life. You have to feel inspired to be creative.
So where do you get inspiration? I don't think there's a single solution to this, it's very much about what triggers your emotions, but it can also be very personal. It might be the smiles on your kids faces, nature, old ribbons and materials, your home....really it can be anything.
Like me feeling inspired to write this post, when I read a draft, for an "about" page to a website, my partner had written. It really inspired me, when I read his words on how he sees our partnership and visions for this company him and I are starting. And it made me want to create something.
This weekend Sussi and I are going to Formland
, a home accessory fair, to be inspired by the coming trends of 2012. It's going to be exciting and it's always fun to discover new things for the home and hopefully to be inspired to create some snazzy, fun projects we can post here on the blog for you guys
May you all have a great weekend! /Annika & Sussi
