As I find inspiring ideas for home decor, gifts, and such online I copy the picture and stick them in a folder on my desktop titled "creative ideas". Its my little inspiration folder that helps get my creative juices going when I need to make a last minute gift or want to (as I am doing now) begin making Christmas gifts.
I never use them exactly as-is but find many ideas already out there are great launching points for new ones. Here's some of them inspiring me for the upcoming holiday season.
Applique Tee Shirts
Embroidered Dish Towels ala Anthropologie
And thats just a few of them. I'd better get to work!
