Organized Inspiration

I'm a magazine-aholic. . .

I'm a blog-aholic . . .

I'm constantly clipping images out of magazines and adding blog posts to my favorites lists.

For years I've kept a inspiration notebook filled with magazine clippings of images I'm drawn to.
 I'm sure many of you do something similar.
But what do you do with all your online finds?

A while back, I started organizing them by using Tumblr.

A quick post highlighting my favorites with a link to the original blog post and I've got an easy way to keep track of all the things I'd like to remember.  

No more trying to remember where I saw something or who posted what!

I've added a button to my side bar if you'd like to have a look at some of my favorite things.

Hope you have a great day,



  1. Hello! I wanted to stop by and say "thank you" for visiting my blog. Also, thanks for your tip on organizing favorite web images. I always see something, say "I'll have to remember that", and then promptly forget! I also like your cat silhouette on the plate. In fact, I love everything in your blog! :)

  2. I checked out all of your saved ideas, they are great. I am not sure about the tumblr, is it what you have your blog through? I like the organization of it.

  3. Hi Robin,
    I was on your site earlier this morning but got sidetracked when the kids got up...so I am back now and off the check out tumblr...
    I hope you have a great weekend!


  4. We are in the same boat Robin. I bookmark everything online and try to keep the folders organized, but still it gets out of control. Great ideas.


  5. Glad to hear other people have this problem as well!!I have an overflowing folder of magazine pages..but my computer is a mess with things I've saved..probably 1/2 the stuff I can't remember where it came from...I'm a disorganized mess! Something is gonna have to be done about that!

  6. I haven't heard of tumblr. I will check it out! I keep a folder on my desktop full of shortcuts, but that gets cumbersome. I need to get organized. Love your inspirations, by the way! Happy weekend!...hugs...Debbie

  7. I keep my magazine clippings in categorized folders but I do need to start using Tumblr for my blog ideas!

    Have a wonderful weekend!


  8. Cool! I've never used Tumblr, but I've started to use Pinterest for the same purpose. It's so handy to have a system - invaluable.

  9. What a great idea, Robin. I haven't checked out tumblr yet--it seems like there's always something new to check out(!). I'll take a look at your account.

  10. Yes! I do the same thing. Forever I have been cutting things out of magazines and save them for ideas.Now with things online I just have been putting them in a folder then burn it to a disk. I love your idea!

  11. Tumblr seems great if it really helps keep you organized--I clearly need to check it out!


I love hearing from you. Thanks for stopping by!
