~ Lace and Light ~
As I’ve mentioned before, for a long time now I’ve been lacking in creative inspiration and if I’m being honest, actually a bit tired of the internet. I recently discovered something however that has got my creative juices flowing again and opened a portal to a whole new and beautiful world. Pinterest.
I’ve always been a magpie for collecting ideas and images that inspire me, sorting them in files and latterly, saving them on my computer. Recently I wandered on over to Pinterest and I have to tell you I was immediately smitten. At last, somewhere to gather together all my ‘pretties’ online, a place to find other creative souls with similar tastes, and a chance to regularly become absorbed in all the beauty and innovative ideas that are out there to find but so often missed. I love it. Think of it as a place to make ‘virtual world mood boards’ if you will. It’s a great resource if you have new creative projects in mind, or if like me you’re just a beauty and design junkie! Interaction with others is not expected but optional. (Er, just reading this back, I should perhaps say that this is not an ad and nor am I a Pinterest employee). :)
I’ve been happily putting together design and inspiration boards and it’s definitely sparking my enthusiasm again. I’ve put a Pinterest link to my art boards over in the right hand column here. Do, please, wander on over to see what I’m wibbling on about. The only slightly odd thing about this site is that it’s ‘by invitation’. I know that I have some hugely creative friends here in Blogworld so I thought I’d give you a heads up. Anyone wanting an invitation, please just give me your email address (my address is on my contact page at the top of the screen) and I’ll be happy to invite you. Anyone already with art boards up on Pinterest, please point me in your direction.
