The first thing I did was go through all of the sheets and decide what was relevant to my design and decorating tastes and what wasn't. This was a great exercise for me -- really taking a look at a photo and deciding if it just appealed to me, or if I would want it or an aspect of the pictured design for my own home. I figured that anything that I like to marvel at from afar but not use within my own home, I would recycle.
I made three categories with my tear sheets -- Interiors, Vacation Cabin, and Details -- and realized that these would make great coffee table books, full of all of the pictures that I love to look at. Grey and I dream to have a cabin in a woodsy area someday, and I have tons of ideas for that, so I'm really glad that I included our hopeful home in the categories. The Details book was to hold many things -- ideas for place settings, holiday decorating, how-to's, color schemes... Anything detail-oriented.
I found a beautiful canvas book at Michael's, and I decided to start on that particular afternoon with my Interior tear sheets. I'm sure you can guess how this went... You just need a glue stick and a book of your choice, and, of course, your inspiration. :-)
There is still a lot of room left in the book to fill as more inspiration falls into my lap, and I have two other books in the works. I have already flipped through this many times while waiting for my husband to get ready for a date, or passing the time between appointments. It just makes me happy to see all of the aspects of what makes my decorating style unique in one place. :-)
