When Bored and Needing Inspiration...

Grab some of your favorite catalogs, a sketchbook, pencil, and a hot chocolate ;) And turn up the Christmas music. And put your comfy plaid pjs on. :) perfect!

I've been so super busy I haven't had any time for just relaxing and sketching. And I was 3 months behind on my Anthro catalogs... so I grabbed everything on my list ^ {up there} and hopped on my bed. :) Blasted Christmas music while looking through the catalogs and sketching things I liked / could DIY :) Made me feel much more crafty again!

And just for the record... I am starting to highly dislike Anthro's clothes/the styling and pairing of them. There were a few I just hated. Haha so I flipped to the back to look at decor ;)

{these were all my 'DIY' knock off ideas. let's see if i ever get around to them!}
OHMYGOSH this model's face drove me nuts in a few pics. No offense. Haha she looks better smiling....

Alrighty, well that's it! moral of today's post:

When feeling un-inspired... pick up a catalog and draw mustaches on all the models. Ok... not really. The moral is you should take some time for yourself and i've found that finding things to knock off is very creatively inspiring. :) It gets your brain a-thinkin' about how to make stuff. :D

Hey, I just found your blog from Confessions of a Graphic Design Student. I love your sketchbook! I think I'm going to put drawing in my sketchbook as one of my New Year's resolutions :)
