stumbleupon.com (looking through fashion, diy and the craft sections)
pinterest.com
Hitting the random blog button on blogger
Tumblr.com

One of my favorites, is going to the mall or something and looking around at what people are actually wearing, less so what's on the shelves. When I see those people who make me say to myself "What happened there?" I try to figure out how to improve it.
I can pull inspiration out of anywhere.

This site, random "I'm feeling lucky"'s from Google, random blogs, deviantART... Oh, and things I want. Like.. if there's an adorable japan import Pikachu doll on Amazon that I really want, but the price tag makes me feel dizzy, I just study it and make it myself for hardly a fraction of the price, haha. Oh, and I also use things I need for inspiration. If my trashcan were to break, for example, I would make another one, maybe a cereal box one or a magazine roll one. And then of course there are just the random "Hey, I should make *insert item here*" moments. Those are probably the best, since they're completely original and just spur-of-the-moment. If you look hard enough, though, you can find inspiration anywhere and everywhere =)

I shop ebay in the vintage section and collect pictures of great vintage details and clothes I love. I also browse google images, read the message boards and see what other's are looking for and I flip through pinterest (although very little inspiration comes from there).

My inspiration comes from mainly magazines. I will see a necklace or a centerpiece i just have to have and i will make it with my own twist.
