Inspiration for a Moody Monday

Winter Blues are in full force around here lately with cold winter weather, a battle against a bodily cold and a tiring of the hibernation mode. I've been needing some escape, and the other day I happened to see the images that I'd been pinning lined up together on Pinterest- they seemed to fit perfectly, so I thought I'd create a small grid here to show you what's been catching my eye. Perhaps I'll just get lost in these images to escape the humdrum...

Building Community on Pinterest

Since I started on Pinterest, it has always acted as a personal mood board for me to find inspiration, as I'm sure it does for a lot of people. But recently I began to ponder on how to engage with in a more communal way, to find inspiration with and alongside others. There's something about bouncing our ideas off one another as a community that gets the inner wheels turning for new projects and ventures. Unfortunately, that's a hard thing to do when your creative community is not physically in the same room. So, I came up with the idea of sharing in our mornings with one another by creating a group Pinterest board for inspiration. It's a place where we can share images and words to set the tone for the day, specifically relating to simplicity and reflective beauty...a place where creative minds can connect. Here are just a few of the images that have been popping up lately:
