We’ve been re-arranging, decorating and cleaning our humble home recently. The blog Apartment Therapy and their guided “January Cure,” (a task-a-day kick start to a year of clutter clearing and nesting activities,) got us going and now we’re off on all sorts of projects and improvements.
When we get on this sort of kick, the ideas start flowing. There was one brilliant idea we were super excited about that was going to revolutionize our space and make our lives easier – but we can’t remember what it was. During our burst of creativity and inspiration, we neglected to take out pad and pencil, (or Ipad and finger) and write it down.
Do not follow our example with your wedding planning light bulb moments! Write EVERYTHING down that inspires you. Later on you’ll combine the decor idea from your co-worker’s cousin’s buffet with the recipe you read in Gourmet magazine at the dentist’s office, the classical music you heard driving after admiring a scene in a Bollywood movie with gauzy fabric and a zillion candles. But it will only come together if you keep paper & a pen (or your favorite way to make notes- Ipad, voice memo, etc)
- in your desk at work
- in your purse
- in the car
- next to your fave spot to watch TV
Another great (and quite common) source of inspiration? Your dreams. So don’t forget one more pad by the bed. Sleep tight.
Live well and love well.
