Saturday Inspiration 7/19/14

Favorite Things, From the Heart, Projects

Over the last 10 years I’ve been busy. Duh… Full time work, three kids, college, home schooling kids, carpool mom. I just keep throwing my magazines in a pile. I keep ordering them and then throwing them in that pile thinking I’ll read them as soon as I have a chance. Seeing how I never have a chance I began scheduling magazine reading into each week. Right now I’m reading new magazines along with magazines from 2011. I absolutely love reading magazines but I do have to admit I’m not actually reading them. I’m looking at the pictures. At least 80% of my inspiration comes from pouring through my favorite magazines.

So while I’m sitting at the gym with Emma on Saturday mornings I’m looking and tearing through the pages of 3-5 magazines. I tear out what grabs me and then I file all the tear sheets under various categories in my filing cabinet so I can refer to them later on.  I’ll use them when I decorate a room or want to try a new do. I refer to them when it’s time to try new recipes, or photo shoot ideas. So many of my ideas start from a picture in a magazine.

Here are five of my favorite sheets I tore out this morning. Maybe they’ll inspire you too!

What a cute dooo! I'd like to try this one on Emma or even myself. Tear that one out!

I really want to panel some of the walls in my house as a feature. I love the walls in this master bedroom. I'm totally going to do this.

I'm hoping to repaint the inside of my house my house this summer and this Light beige is the perfect color!

This was my favorite off all the tears today. It is a list of 16 things to do to get your yard ready for summer. I realize Summer is here but it's never to late to get these things done. We are going to revisit this one in future projects, for sure.
