I usually look for inspiration online on blogs. Quite often I don’t have to look for the inpiration though as it just pops out at me from all the wonderful blogs. :)
I check out blogs and Pinterest! But HGTV.com is pretty clicked on…..

one of my many magazine subscriptions – real simple, martha stewart, family circle, better homes & gardens…
Jaclyn B. says
Love magazines! But love Pinterest too! My favorite though, is a trip to my favorite antique shop.
For me its definitely blogs
maria Alvarado says
I love that dish towel. If I am trying to get ideas I hit the blogs, pinterest, and magazines. I become so obessed I lose sleep looking and reading everything. Shhh dont tell my family… lol…
I mainly go to blogs and Pinterest. So much inspiration out there, so little time!
My biggest source of inspiration anymore is Pinterest and the many blogs I subscribe to. I also read several magazines, but told my husband not to renew my subscriptions because I’ve already seen all the ideas they give on Pinterest. I am currently redoing my kitchen in a vintage red & aqua theme (95% of the ideas came from Pinterest), and that sketchy bicycle dish towel would be perfect for my kitchen :)
For most inspiration, I go to blogs and Pinterest. I also love linky parties.
Lisa Cooper says
Pinterest is my new go-to inspiration!
I get the majority of my inspiration from blogs (Like Flamingo Toes) but also from online groups like Tracy Weinzapfel’s Ustream group on Monday nights and from online classes as well. Thanks for the chance to win and for showing follower love!

Heidi aka Digital Misfit says
Yay Bev! I want my own sketchy tea towel!
I am all over the web for crafty inspiration. Pinterest guides me around the best blogs (such as Flamingo Toes – yes, I am sucking up, but it is true still). Etsy is another source of creative inspiration, both supplies and crafty goods.
Now if I could just find an online source for MOTIVATION in addition to inspiration, I would be rockin’!

Hi, just found your blog. New follower
Annie K says
I use them all, but I am more inspired by projects from blogs I follow, because 1) I already like the blogger’s style, or I wouldn’t follow them, and 2) there’s generally going to be more photos, more closeups, and sometimes even awesome, step-by-step tutorials, written by people you can actually e-mail a question to, and get an answer back!
Thanks for the giveaway! I tried leaving a comment yesterday, but couldn’t so hopefully rafflecopter still worked :)
Love you Flamingo Toes, your Fridays always crack me up. I will never, ever stop following you!
Thanks for a great giveaway Bev! I LOVE the retro bicycle dish towel :)
Christine Kiehl says
I normally go to the web and magazines or books for my inspiration. I am more of a writer so the visual crafts I tend to reach out for ideas on how to get started.
Generally the internet, for jewelry FT is my first stop!
Being a follower of Flamingo Toes is great; being a follower and a giveway even greater!
Thanks for the chance,
