My solution is to keep a DIY list in my style notebook.* I list projects I’ve invented or stolen. (When I'm away from home, I jot ideas in a smaller notebook, to later transfer to my list.) I add inspiration pictures or sometimes whole pages from magazines. With my ideas tucked safely away, my mind is freed to dream again.
Today, my Saturday morning plans were rained out, so I opened up my book and completed two projects. I sewed a piece of broken jewelry to a beret and made a new owl brooch.
How do you organize your ideas?
*I don’t think I’ve properly documented the rest of the style notebook. Stay tuned!
