Have you considered creating an inspiration board? Perhaps you have one already... I've thought about making one numerous times, but I just haven't made the time to put one together. It sounds simple enough....
Step One: create a base for your board (bulletin board, wood, metal, fabric)
Step Two: collect small items that you find inspirational
Step Three: attach your collected items with pins, glue, magnets or whatever makes your board work
I must admit I'm a bit apprehensive when it comes to thinking about putting one together. I am not particularly fond of the idea of just jumbling a bunch of random things together in a square or rectangular fashion. I like the idea of color coordination and keeping things relative to each other somehow, with even spacing all the way around.
I feel like I'm over-analyzing. There is a key word that's popping out at me in that word... analyzing. Did you spot it? Anal. Which is what I can be when I want to be. And, that's actually what I am when it comes to planning an inspiration board.
Perhaps I'm zapping the possibility of becoming inspired because of my over-analysis.
What are your thoughts on finding inspiration? Are you good at finding it anywhere you look, or do you prefer the option of having a space for collector's items that will inspire you and your level of creativity?
