My Vision For You

Feeling inspired lately? What makes your heart beat quickly, or fosters your mood to create? Do you have a special place you go, a person you call, or do the images in your mind push your magic button?

Share with us the tools you use to bring out your inner muse. Who is she? Maybe she is lurking inside but trapped behind a stone gate. Open that gate and let her creative juices flow.

How about an inspiration or vision board? It is very easy to put together and if you are like me you have stacks of magazines that you just can't bare to throw out.
Put them to good use and search for images that inspire you. It can be a table that you would love to add to your dining room or a place that you have been just dying to visit.
What ever sets off that spark within your mind.

I use words and quotes to mix in with the images on my board. I glue images that I want to remain permanent and tack on those that I may want to change. If you don't have a handy magazine supply you can just as easily google or flickr for your muse.

I recently found a flickr group for inspiration boards. Check it out here. If you decide to use flickr then you can go here for a handy tool to paste in the url and make a Mosaic board of your inspirational images. Just paste and print, now what could be easier than that?

Sometimes inspiration comes from the muses all around us. Slow down, take a deep breath, open your mind, then open your eyes and really see!

Life imitates art (or vice versa) and sometimes your muse is no father than your own back yard.

Drop me a line and share with me your inspirations. Tell me about your favorite photos or an inspiration board that you would like to share.

Inspire me!

Thanks for your visit.
I hope you feel inspired enough to bring your inner muse out to play.

Follow your bliss!



  1. Mya, I am inspired by life itself. I just like to take the time to enjoy all of the wonders around me. All of that beauty inspires me to keep my life and my home beautiful.

    Just like now, I am sitting at my computer looking out the window at our rose garden and listening to the birds sing. It just makes me smile.

    That little angel of yours looks like she is enjoying the water.

  2. I have binders full of pictures that I've torn out of magazines over the years. Sometimes it's fun to just sit and look through all the things that are my own personal pick of beautiful items. Blogs are more inspiration that nearly anything but Flickr is pretty wonderful too. In fact, I sat at Flickr for a good half hour today just browsing. Have a wonderful Monday. Blessings.. Polly

  3. Mya, I am inspired by your post and music. I want to learn how to use Flickr. I'm not sure I spelled that correctly. I don't think I can correct my comment, once it is posted. So I'll live with it. I do have magazines I just can"t throw out, who doesn't. Maybe they will come in handy.

    Thanks for visiting my post today.

    Take care, Jeanne
