Creative Toolbox

Today we are posting our creative toolbox. We got the idea from TJ at His little lady.

So here are some ways that we like to keep the creativity flowing. Enjoy!
1.//Farmers Market. Nothing like a farmers market to get your creativity flowing. 2.// A walk. One of the best ways to get us going on the ideas. 3.// Dancing. We love to dance, what can we say It's relaxing. 4.//Office. Sometimes you just have to set time aside to really get your creativity going. 5.// The beach. When you live in Southern California of course you're going to the beach for inspiration. 6.// A bike ride. Do we need to say anymore? Bike rides are fun and a little freeing.

What are some things you do to get inspired?
