When I got married and we moved into our house, one of the very first things that I got for the house was a bulletin board. Drew and I covered it in torn out pages from Guitar Player, etc. We used it to collect our concert ticket stubs, photobooth pics and more. I wish that I had a picture of it, but sadly, I do not.
I don't think that there has ever been a period of time where I have lived in this house and not had at least one bulletin board. Right now I have three. I love how its a contained space to add those little bits of life that seem to collect, that you don't want to get rid of, memories you don't want to forget and the inspiration that you have found.
Of my three boards, two are for momentos and inspiration and various found odds n' ends and one is for my ever growing button/flair collection.
This one is the one that you see when you walk into my room, it's on the door. It is also a project that I made for the A Million Memories Birthday crop. You can find the instructions at the A Million Memories forum in the birthday crop section.
And these two are right by my desk when I am scrapping and on the computer.
I asked my dear friend Kristin to share her Inspiration Board and luckily she said yes! Be sure to check out Kristins blog Reclaiming the Home to see more of her crafts (she spins her own yarns and way more!), recipes and all about her wonderful little family.
What Kristin had to say about her board : "The first one is the whole board. One shows a closeup of a painting I did (Embrace the Everyday). The hearts I sewed myself. The picture with the 3 hearts at the bottom is one Abbi and I did together doing potato stamping. The last one shows a card with a tree, a heart on a chain, a piece of cute horse fabric, part of my hanging...thingy (sortof a chime, but no sound?), with some of my handspun camel on it. I tried to just put things on there that remind me of the things I love. There's still a lot to add, and some space to add it, but as you know- these things are a constant work in progress. :)"
Along with these, I've also realized that sites like tumblr and weheartit.com are basically online inspiration boards. I use my tumblr account (link on the left side bar if you're interested) to save pictures, quotes and thoughts that I find inspiring and may want to use in my scrapping, decor, etc.
I would love to see pictures of your inspiration boards or any that you have found online and love!
