Organising Inspiration

Collecting inspiration is one of the most important parts of being an original blogger. I've learnt that your completely original ideas are always the best and most popular. But in the blogging world, we are overloaded with inspiration so where do we put it all. I have many ways that I jot down ideas, organise and re-make inspiration....


Journal
I'm always journalling ever since Chloe wrote her amazing tips on notebook keeping. I love to draw up ideas and plan them out visually because I am such a visual person when it comes to planning! I spend so much of my time just drawing ideas and making them come to life even more than in my head. I love picturing the colours and looking at fabrics - possibly sticking little bits of it into the journal and creating little mini-mes of such an exciting project for me.



Blog Post Book
If you are a long time reader, you might remember my post on my blog post planning notebook. I use this book when I have a great idea and need to scribble it down quickly. I throw the sticky note into the right section and when I have no ideas, I go a see my trusty book of sticky notes. Obviously they don't always work out quite right so the note goes into the trash - but it might spark a new idea. All ideas should be kept even if you have doubts on it.


Inspiration Wall (mood boards)
On a wall in my room, I have an inspiration wall. I guess this is kind of a mood board for no reason, just lots of things that I love. The colour patterns always give me an idea for a colour story for my latest project which I might possibly have drawn out in my journal. Sometimes the objects of my wall, don't go together, but they never look bad because a bit of colour or shape make it all work and I always feel happy looking at the board.





Pinterest
Pinterest can be self-explanatory but I LOVE it. I generally have lots of boards on public with crafts, home ideas, food ideas (oh so mouthwatering), as well as boards of summer pics, style, plants?, patterns and just a board called 'I Love'. You can follow me here for lots of inspiration for your organisation.

Other Ideas + Tips
- Type out notes and save on computer if you work on your computer a lot
- Print out inspiring images and stick them anywhere to look at them all the time
- Sticky Notes explain themselves

I hope you enjoy these four little tips on organising inspiration. I know that I spend way too much time thinking about inspiration and organising it in a million different ways.

If you have any other ideas or ways that you organise inspiration, please leave a comment so I and others can see!
