I feel blessed to be among some very creative minds and encourage you to check out the blogging chain. The previous post was from Papers & Packages and tomorrow's will be Paris Hotel Boutique.
1...my surroundings. While my bathroom doesn't look anything like that, a girl can dream, right? And why not create some paper goods based on those design elements. Where I live and create also plays into the design process. The bottom image is the view from my studio and where I often find myself looking during design pauses. And of course, my family is the biggest inspiration and most important surrounding.

2...magazines. While I do frequently visit wedding and design blogs, there's nothing better than buying a magazine that catches your eye and flipping through real pages. I especially love the way Surfer's Journal uses color on their covers.
