Idea Journal

Magazines and catalogs are a great source of inspiration for me. Whether it is a faucet, storage solution, or an entire home, I love seeing how other people do things. But you can only have so many magazines laying around at once. Eventually all of my dog-eared pages full of great ideas are no longer a usable resource, and I end up tossing them. 


I needed a convenient place to organize all of that great inspiration, and came up with my "Dream Home Journal."


I simply used a notebook with blank pages inside, decorated it with scrap booking paper and embellishments (I was so happy to find this door knob embellishment, since I am collecting home ideas) and added tabs for all of the categories. Now when I come across a great idea that I would like to implement in the future, I cut it out and place it in the right section.


While I use this for home inspiration, I would love to have more books filled with sewing and crafting ideas as well. Do you have any creative ideas for "idea storage?"

Hey Krista! We are really looking forward to this weekend; the kids are CONSTANTLY asking when we will go.

I got the door knob forever ago at that big scrapbooking store in Frisco (I can't remember what its called). I thought I was with you when I got it, but I might have been with Autumn.

And as for how I find the time, its called being a night-owl. But then comes the morning, and I hate myself for staying up so late!
