Someone asked

Where I get all my ideas from for my plaques. I can't remember who asked the question and I'm too lazy to look it up but I will answer.

I do a lot of searching.

I search Pinterest. If I have no particular theme in mind I just do a general search for mixed media ideas. If I don't like the results I may change the wording up a bit.

I also do google searches the same way and look at the image results

If I see something that catches my eye I think about how I could copy the idea. Sometimes I have a specific theme in mind so I'll use that word in my search such as coffee or birds.

I wish I could say that everything I do is my own original ideas but that just isn't the case.


  1. It is not good to not give Gibbs the credit he is due. I am sorry for being away so song. I am now around 2/3 done with the processing for the new directory and am starting to see some light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.

  2. Anything we can use can be a good inspiration for an idea. I exclusively use the internet if I need to identify an animal or something else related to that.

  3. I usually find inspiration on Pinterest and in magazines. And recently on instagram too!

  4. you know i am the google queen and i love that we can all get inspired by what we find on WWW.... i find jokes and quotes by searching for what my subject matter is, i find them on FB to. and in others blogs, i have been known to borrow from a fellow blogger quotes.

  5. What you find mirrors you and your humor.

  6. I love them no matter they are original or not!

  7. I would do the same thing if I were crafty. You have to get ideas from somewhere and I'm guessing the ideas you get they got theirs the same way.

    Have a fabulous day. Big hug to you and my very best to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

  8. First, you have to have the imagination and desire to do these things in the first place!

  9. I think Grace is right...it begins with you. Oh sure, you can find inspiration and ideas, but successfully creating the things you do takes a lot of talent!

  10. LOVE Pinterest! It's great for finding quotes too!

  11. Pinterest is my go-to place for inspiration as well. I love it.


Thoughts, opinions, constructive criticism, it's all good to me.
I will delete all spam comments however, so don't even bother trying!
