Last year I found something that I thought was pretty cool – the fact that some people keep a cork board (or something similar) in their craft/quilting studios with little things pinned to it as a way to get design inspiration.
Quilted Cupcake podcast introduced me to the digital equivalent of this idea! Pinterest is a fun way to make one or several inspiration boards as you browse the internet and organize them in a really useful way. Your boards will save the photo, any notes you make on it and a link back to the original page where you found the photo. Caution if you are using Google Images – it won’t save the link to the page where the original image is from unless you click through to that page.
It is a really simple way to keep track of design inspiration online. Let me know if you want an invite to Pinterest and I can send you one! It took a few days for me to get an approval since I didn’t get invited directly by someone else.
Tip: Highlight text on the page before you click “pin it” and your notes will automatically be filled in with the highlighted text!
