I’m a big believer in inspiration boards (or mood boards) that put me in a great sunny mood or give me an extra boost of positivity. We all need a little assistance every now and then. Imagery is a great helper in that regard since most of us are visual creatures. Of course, music, exercise and being around loved ones are great ways to create good vibes too. I’m getting ahead of myself! Back to inspiration boards. In our home, B and I always have images that make us feel good placed in various spots around the place, which never fail to leave us feeling inspired at the sight of them.
I might see a particularly gorgeous hue of pink and set to canvas with that colour in my mind to paint with. Or I might see a really cute picture of a cake (there’s one in this gallery I have completely fallen in like with!) and think, “Oooh, been a while since I baked”. Cue a very happy afternoon spent baking. Images of nature never fail to soothe me and make me feel at ease. And tell me who doesn’t get gushy over photos of puppies, bunnies and kittens? WHO?!
If you haven’t got a board in some shape or form, then you can feel free to have a sticky beak at what mine tend to look like to get you started! These are just a couple of pictures which I just bookmarked on weheartit.com because they bring a smile to my face every time I see these images.
We’ll talk about my OBSESSION with weheartit.com another time, maybe in a post on sites that I just keep going back to.
I’ll keep updating this page as time goes by, and if you have any suggestions, feel free to share them with me and I’ll try to add them here.
