For the last couple of years, I have been collect magazine clips, design postcards and other tidbits which I tack up on the wall behind my desk. It is a growing, constantly changing work in progress, but sometimes tends to look more like a teenager’s bedroom wall than an office.
I love these office spaces as they show ways to collect and display inspiration while still looking polished.

I often get asked what blogs I followed for inspiration when planning our wedding. If you are elbow deep in planning, you know just how many wedding blogs there are out there! To help wade you through the load, here are some of my favourites:
Style Me Pretty: A pretty obvious choice as it is one of the most popular wedding blogs. I loved SMP because they had tons of inspiration pictures and have categorized them well to help narrow down your searches.
The Collection Event Studio: The go-to resource for California wine country weddings. I met the founders of The Collection last year while doing some contributor writing pieces for them and they definitely know their stuff!
Oh So Beautiful Paper: Great inspiration for wedding invitations, save the dates and other paper goods needed for the day of.
100 Layer Cake: Another fairly popular blog, similar to SMP but has a great DIY and Marketplace section.
Snippet & Ink: Another daily inspiration blog filled with colour boards, real weddings and themes.
I finally received an invitation to join @Pinterest on Monday and have been playing around with it since. Haven’t heard of Pinterest? From their site: “ Think of Pinterest as a virtual pinboard — a place where you can create collections of things you love and “follow” collections created by people with great taste.”
So far it is has been a great place to get ideas from some of my favorite bloggers without having to search their individual sites. I like the bookmarklet that allows me to pin items from whatever site I happen to be on. It is a good place for me to organize my ever changing wedding ideas.
If you are on Pinterest, be sure to add me!
