That being said, sometimes I run up against a mental block. I can't think of the colors that I want to combine when decorating my bedroom, I can't think of a way to use the giant stack of chopsticks I purchased for next to nothing (certain that there was some creative use for them), I have hoards of fabric with no specific intent other than I liked the texture or the pattern. This is where my creative tools come into play! Here are a few that I use that I hope you find helpful as well :)

Nature - I am VERY fortunate to live in the Northeast. We have 4 very distinct and beautiful seasons to draw inspiration from. This time of year, I like to collect leaves, sometimes I fill up a bucket with acorns, then spray paint them gold, silver and bronze, fill a mason jar with them and stick a candle in the center to create a fall centerpiece. In the winter I draw inspiration from the silhouette of bare tree branches against the sky, the different shades of white and blue in the snow, the beauty of ice formations. Spring brings a riot of gorgeous colors and Summer usually finds me at the ocean wondering at the colors and textures at the beach.
There are so many different ways to get your creative juices flowing! (Now motivation..that's another story altogether ;)
How do you inspire yourself?
