It happens to all of us. We all get in a rut, in one way or another. Life has a funny way of piling up and it can really block your creativity! We are curious to know, where do you turn for inspiration?
I love Instagram or Facebook for new ideas. When I'm stuck and don't know what to sew, or I just want to look at other people creating pretty things, those are my first two stops. I follow many of the pages of the brands or designers we carry, which is a great place to start. Pinterest is also a great place to look, but I can get frustrated by too many dead-end clicks.
Here's a few of my faves! I hope you'll add them to your follow list, and please share in the comments below on Facebook, what sites or pages do you follow?
