inspiration monday

here's a great way to add a lot of inspiration to your workspace using a minimal amount of supplies.  first, you'll need a metal wire structure...it can be any shape or size that you choose.  mine is about 28" tall, and i found it in the home decor section at hobby lobby (click here, and then on "weekly specials", for coupons!).   i've also seen these at target and other fun places.

next, you'll need something to hang all of your goodies. these are called "dangling clips"...most craft stores sell these in the jewelry supplies aisle.  if you can't find these, you could also use small clothespins, or anything else that will help you attach your items to the structure.


lastly, just clip whatever inspires you and hang it from your structure!  some ideas are greeting cards, bookmarks, business cards, small pieces of artwork, ribbon, photographs, love notes, post cards...the sky's the limit!  have fun!

Ooooh, I love it! I've been wanting to have an inspiration board but didn't want all the messy push-pins. This is a much better idea. I'm headed to Hobby Lobby today! Thanks Lori!

This is a great idea! We have a string of beads and clips that does the same but I like the idea of making a sculpture piece with cards and photos :)

This is just the best idea! Too bad it would take up about half of my workspace! ... I need a room! xoxo Paulette ;)
