We think of ourselves as pretty creative individuals around here but often we get inspired by what others think are great, cool, new, hip or cutting edge. and you know what? That is perfectly fine. Sometimes an idea arises from something that has nothing to do with what we originally thought might work. Being creative is a process but mostly a journey.
What do we get or do for our awesome Mother’s on this day?
With so much information at our fingertips, we are often left being stumped as to what we are exactly looking for. What do I search for when needing ideas for our moms? If you don’t know yet, how can you search for it?
Lately, our first stop is Pinterest instead of a search engine. You cannot beat this site for inspiration. Often we go in searching for one thing and come out on the other side with a whole new project, diet, lifestyle and a new manifesto for living. Trust us, minutes have turned into hours once you get started on this site.
Pinterest is the ultimate in idea organization. Pinterest is the uber digital dream vision board. Pinterest is the best online bookmark for inspiration.
For Mother’s Day, it can be a way to:
find a unique gift for her
a beautiful idea for a heart felt letter
a way for her to improve herself
finding an easy how-to for the perfect Mother’s Day brunch
find a great mom weekend get-away
