Good old fashioned magazine reading and cutting out!
I love the snip, snip, snip of paper and how you can create a pretty patterned display of your findings.
Pinterest is brilliant because it’s so instant, it appeals to my organised side and it orders everything nicely for me. You can’t snip in the virtual world and I can get lost into Pintrest for hours without making a single bit of mess! I love that Pinterest is so easy to search and that one idea leads to another and another…. You can start with searching for one idea for a rainbow themed children’s party and end with a whole host of children’s planning ideas! And then there’s the whole ‘connection’ side of pinterest you can follow people and peek into their brains and inspirations without them noticing! You can get excited when a random stranger over the other side of the world repins something you did- it’s like someone personally saying “hey! We love your idea!”
But there’s something so tactile about snipping. Sitting down with pile of magazines and just a snip, snip with the scissors and a blob of glue and you can create your own little inspiration journal. There’s nothing that beats flicking through those pages. And notebooks are so pretty, I’d like a whole room to display pretty stationery. I don’t have a room …. But I do have a board…..and the whole cyberspace of pretty notebooks to scavenge.
And what could be better than that?
