y friend Gabriela Delworth is always coming up with new and interesting ways to inspire us. This week she is having a Mood Board Blog Party.

My creationMy mood board is a small one that I can carry from room to room...


My creationto hang on the wall of my art room, or sit on an easel.


My creationSince I am often in the mood to create at my kitchen table, my board is usually plain in sight.


My creationEach bit and bobble, old letter, swatch and sparkle are pinned to my board and represent a reminder of a design idea.

My creation I am working on, here I have it at the bottom of my bakers rack. Whether I am cooking or creating it is in plain sight to remind me of projects I need to finish.


My creationSo here is my mood board ready to inspire me.


My creationMusic also inspires me to design. Since I am in a mermaid kind of mood, the song for this post is Legend of the Sea.

What a wonderful idea to put your moodboard on an easle like that so that you can take it with you. It looks wonderful!

So timely -- I'm cleaning out my workspace/office and have just hung a board of my own on one of the walls to clip my inspirations on!!

What a great idea! I am going to do this in my classroom and see what the kids come up with! Bisous, Anita

Vee said...

Oh my! How wonderful...I am sure that I don't have the kind of mind that could create such a thing...I'm delighted to oooh and ahhhh over your mood board. Then is the board used to pull the project together? I hope that we get to see the final product.

I love that easle, what a great idea to have a take away moodboard! And I love the idea of using the vintage pins too! I use ordinary sewing pins, but only the ones with pearl or chrystal bead knobs. Thanks for inspiration (I will certainly use the idea of the pins and brooches in the future!). Have a nice day!

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

It is as lovely as all of your things are. Have a Happy week...m.

Hi Karen I have missed visiting you lately. Between threes days a week of therapy and my dear cousin visiting, not much computer time. sadly she goes home on Sun. but hopefully life will get back to normal. She has been here for two weeks already.

Your mood board is a great idea as a reminder to work on your projects. I for one, need reminders. BIG smile. Yours is colorful and interesting. Gabriella is full of great ideas. You are the perfect artist to carry her ideas through.

Have a great evening.

I love the idea of a portable board. Your board is so pretty and I was especially taken with that beautiful pink ribbon with green edges. It is divine!!!
And way to go on the multiple posts. Yikes that is a lot of work.
