I'm So Crafty // DIY Desktop Inspiration Board


Fact: Between assisting clients, writing blog posts, returning emails, and general dicking around on the internet, it's safe to say that I spend a majority of the day staring at my computer screen.

I recently replaced my desktop image (sorry Brutus) with a digital inspiration board of beautiful images and quotes, and it's truly been a wonderful way to kickstart my day and stay focused on 'the important things' throughout it.

I am a firm believer in the power of positive thinking, and that you attract things into your life based on your thoughts, so I chose the images that I wanted staring back at me all day very carefully.

What I love about my desktop inspiration board is that there are no scissors or glue or piles of magazines involved - I simply gathered images that I love off the internet and Pinterest, clicked on this website to find out what my screen resolution is, used the collage feature at PicMonkey, and went to town creating. I completed this project in under thirty minutes, and you can too! 


Have you ever created an inspiration board?

Do you believe in the power of positive thinking?

  1. Well look at you Ms. Fancy Pants. Love this idea! I truly believe what happens in our life is a direct reflection of how we go about our days and how we react to certain situations. Sure, there are things that happen our of our control, but in the end, it's all about how you handle those things.

  10. I absolutely believe in the power of positive thinking! It's something that I'm pretty proud of - I always try to see the good in a situation, even if it's hard. My boyfriend is the exact opposite so it's been a struggle sometimes to convince him that it really does help, but we're getting there!! Love the inspiration board too, it's so beautiful to look at!!

  12. I love this!! I need to sit down one day and figure out what quotes I want where and either make the print or buy them. Pinterest has quote the hoard of inspirational quotes. I am a firm believer in positive thinking and saying affirmations. Why not put your affirmations on the wall as art??

  16. My roommate and I used to do these all the time when we were in college. I think I might need to make up a new one! I believe in positive thinking for sure. Negativity, or stinkin thinkin as Boomer calls it, will only drag you down.
