As you know from reading this blog my family is creative, fun and totally supportive.
When I was home recently I talked to them a little bit about both how great it is to have this business and to write this blog . But I also confessed that sometimes project ideas were few and blog post inspirations were occasionally hard to come by.
My sisters, Paula (charming, vibrant and extremely youthful*) and Phebe (smart, clever, creative and equally young and vibrant) came up with a great idea. They would scour the net looking for fun and interesting ideas and put them on a shared Pinterest board. Then, once a week, I could do a post called…..
…..well, we weren’t sure what to call it.
I tossed out “Sister Sunday!” but we decided that might make people think it was a nun convention.
I also contemplated “Stuff My Sisters Found Online When They Probably Should Have Been Working” but, strangely enough, that too got voted down.
Finally I settled on Get Inspired!
They’ve actually provided me with a lot of choices but I just want to show three of them this week.
This tin ceiling tile end table from One Shabby Old House looks terrific and gives me some great ideas for two little end table I have:And check out this amazing Ikea makeover from Better After. I have a dresser quite similar to this in my bedroom and it may get this treatment soon.And finally, in the “that’s insanely clever” category this magazine holder used as a shelf from Design Sponge!
OK, I’m ready to attack the week with new ideas and inspirations. Thank you Phebe and Paula!
