Finding Pinspiration

I can't believe I haven't done a Pinterest picks post (say that three times fast) since last July!  When I started doing them, people weren't as familiar with Pinterest as they are now, so it was new and exciting for me.  I'd get all pumped up to share the images I'd pinned and publicly profess my love for my newest obsession.  I think that eventually, I kind of assumed you guys wouldn't be as interested now that Pinterest has become sort of a staple for creative people.   Whatever the reason, I sure did let a lot of time go by without mentioning it here. I was in need of an inspiration boost yesterday, and after spending a good hour lost in Pinterest-ville, I decided it was officially time to do another Pinterest-themed post.

The images above are some of my recent favorites.  Isn't it kind of amazing how so many completely unrelated images can come together in a certain way and make you feel inspired?  I think that's one of the coolest aspects of Pinterest.  Although the different boards and categories keep things semi-organized, it's still a beautifully chaotic sea of random goodness that serves as a gentle reminder of how easy it is to find inspiration in the everyday.
