GUEST BLOGGER: Libby from pinkshirtsandcarwrecks

hello again! to follow up on my last post about closet-sized workspaces, here are some great examples of how to keep yourself inspired in your studio/office, even if it's teeny tiny. i love the aesthetic of "inspiration wires" and how they can be adapted to fit any space, large or small, but of course any method will do. there's a great inspiration boards pool to visit for even more ideas, but here are some of my favorites. 
[above] a truly lovely board featuring vintage tickets on a string by dawbis of  lovely paper.

jennifer of swallowfield's inspiration wire. (check out her great exhibition with matte stephens at nahcotta, too.) 

i think the inspiration wire that started it all: maria of port2port press has her inspiration wires chronicled here

i love the soft colors and the white lights in koreana's studio.

a wire by jördis!

a couple clotheslines wires by molly of orangette.

a nifty chicken wire inspiration board by arugula press.

one of simplyphoto's beautiful shots of her inspiration wall.

and finally here are my inspiration wires. i think it's time for a seasonal shift. 

how do you keep yourself inspired?

Just wrote a couple of entries on my blog about inspiration. Please stop by and tell me what you think:

I am soooo inspired by your collection of inspiration boards, wires, and walls. I do believe I'll start me one tomorrow! Thank you for sharing.

This is such a cool idea! That top photo is my favorite.

Oh, and Koreana's Studio with all those lights.

My inspiration is usually in desktop folders. I miss having an inspiration board and am promising myself I'll make one in my home office when we move. Sort of tough to do when your home office is the crack of the couch;)
