Inspiration Ideas!!!

We have all suffered drom Crafters Block at one point or another, and it's not always easy to overcome. So I've compiled a list of top tips to help for when inspiration eludes you.

1- Visit haberdashery stores, the different textures, colours and patterns of the fabrics is sure to inspire. (This can also be done online for those of us who are a little lazier)

2- Reread old craft magazines. Magazines that have been gathering dust for months are full of ideas you wanted to try but never got round to. (Also craft books)

3- Visit blogs online. You can adapt any project to suit your own requirements by changing the colours, patterns, etc.

4- Craft fairs and shows. There are always lots of new products and demos to inspire.

5- Go through your photo albumn. Pictures of friends, family, nature, special occaisons, trips away etc will give you ideas.

6-Flick through your paper stash. Sometimes just looking at the different papers in your collection will get your creative juices flowing.

Hope this helps
