I love to get inspired by browsing through my old photos of people, places, and things. I love to pair up old photos with new scrap materials!


I meet with a group of friends on a Friday to craft. I usually find that if I need inspiration for my project, a friend can Suggest something for me to try. I come home inspired for the weekend.


I love to look through my scrapbooks to get the creative juices flowing again. Just sorting pictures on line or into my file drawers also helps!

I'm so excited about this book. (I have quite a few from ella- they are all superb!). One thing I do to boost my creativity is flip through the pages of Pottery Barn or Chasing Fireflies catalogs- I love the textures and colors used!


It doesn't really count as an "activity" cuz there's nothing active about it, but I love to blog surf. I am always inspired by the creative people I find on the internet!

It may sound strange, but I meditate each day to calm myself and get centered. It does help me to get the creative juices working. Of, course, a book with some new ideas would also be a great help.

Melissa Rhodes

I listen to music! It always gets me going!


I'd love a copy of this ebook! I would like to be more creative with my photo displays - other than regular photo frames. I'd love to have pictures of my family around me.


I am so excited about this book! Of all the things I do to get inspired about creating, I think the most effective is when I sit back and take a deep breath, let all of the "busy-ness" of life fade away, and let my eyes see my world around me with a new perspective.


i clean...somehow doing what i don't like gives me inspiration to do what i love!! having this ebook would also inspire me!


Working with my Girl Scout troop and seeing what they come up with in their crafting always surprises me - and gives me inspiration for fun projects of my own! Looks like a great book!


I would love this book- I look through my scrapbooks and my pictures, and that usually spurs me on to creativity. Also, watching my boys do things really makes me get excited about scrapping.


I check out other blogs to spark my creativity. And I go thru my "Idea Book" - which has cutouts of layouts I like & other things that inspire me.

I would love to win a copy of this book. Whenever I need a creativity boost, I visit the galleries of some of my favourite websites, or pick a few selections from my "creativity jar" (a jar with things like use paper tearing or use 12 brads on a page, etc) or just sit in my scraproom surrounded by my supplies and let my mind float free.


I love looking at blogs and taking classes at BPS gets me in the creative mood.


An activity I do to boost my creativity... That would be talk and share with a friend anything about the latest thing we have heard about or tried and ideas just start flowing. Before I we know it we are blurting out several possibilities of what we could do with a piece of cardboard! LOL


I love your approach to scrapbooking! I am excited to see what this new publication has to offer. So I can't wait to dive in. You have helped me organize, plan, reorganize and actually do so many projects. Here I am again looking for a kick start. Perfect timing! :)
Thanks for all your dedication to this wonderful craft.


Check out some of my fav blogs and go through my photos...makes me want to scrap! :-)

Whenever I am having "me" time. That could be walking home (after dropping the kids off at school), reading a book, listening to music, drinking tea (or a glass of wine) - basically ANY time whenever I have the luxury of it just being me !!


Wow, the colors here are just amazing and already have me feeling creative! When I want to boost my creativity I browse blogs, skim through my Tumblr account, or just start creating, which for me lately is usually something digital. =)


I love looking though catalogs and magazines to gain creative inspiration.

Blog hopping and browsing my old LO's. It's amazing how inspiring they can be!


I go outside and sit in the sunshine for a few minutes and just let all the sights and sounds soak in. Usually a good breathe of fresh air and sunshine gets me going. If that doesn't work, then I do something messy in a different medium. Whether it be baking sugar cookies, finger painting, or drawing on the driveway with the kids in chalk, usually just playing in a different medium is all it takes to jump start my creativity.


I try to boost my creativity by going blog hopping!


I'd say that what I do to boost my creativity is to do arts and crafts with my daughter who just turned 11. She doesn't think about the rules and just creates. It's a good approach for me to remember.
