Where do get your inspiration?

After browsing Etsy this morning (yes, I'm procrastinating again!) I found myself thinking how many talented people there are on Etsy. I wondered where did they get their inspiration? For me, I love Alice in Wonderland, so I am drawn to anything which invokes this.

I came across the clock (above) by CyberMoon-isn't it great?

I recently went on a surprise trip to Chester Zoo with my lovely boyfriend and I was very inspired! Lots of weird and wonderful animals which would readily lend themselves to being immortalised in gorgeous paintings and jewellery.

So what inspires you?

Love for stumbleupon!

OK, so I am totally addicted to stumble upon having never heard of it until today! After deciding with myself (these decisions need a second opinion!) that I should spend the day making stuff/ tidying and sorting I have actually spent the day in Etsy forums and looking on stumbleupon!

If you want a bloody good excuse to waste a day, check it out! Here's my latest addiction:

I have stuff to do, so why am I not doing it? I woke up two and a half hours ago. I've checked my emails and had breakfast. That's it. I could have packaged my Ebay stuff ready for the post office. I could have de-creased my pile of ironing which has been sitting there for over a week! If there was a magic pill to take to stop procrastinating, I would take it (as long as there were no side effects such as growing a beard, of course)

So it's decided. I'm going to drink my brew then....well, what should I tackle first??
