There seems to be an endless amount of people out there doing something inspirational. Some we’ve been fortunate enough to run across andÂ so many more that we have yet to see.
We are inspired daily. Here are just some of the sources that inspire us.

Bloggies, blogger, blogs…Ofcourse I would be remiss if I didn’t devote a little time to all those out there who are inspiring me on a daily basis. Without you sometimes I would be bored but most of the time just distracted.
Dinner & A Movie postings at From Me To You, Jamie makes me want to cook. Thats some serious inspiration, ask most people I know and they’ll tell you I don’t cook. Food aside, the rest of From Me to You is a visual feast of Jamie’s photography work and pretty darn inspiring. I haven’t made any of the dishes yet but it is a very attainable goal of mine. Jamie don’t ever stop doing what you do.
My favorite dinner combo to date is the Arugula & Goat Cheese Ravioli AND Revolutionary Road.

What gets Betsy…
At times, inspiration washes over me with an inertia. It requires no effort and I am indulged in every direction. It is in these moments that I feel I am at my most creative. Motivated. Unstoppable. In these moments I think. I think. I think. and I write. I think and write about the following.
I’m inspired by beautiful rooms (especially when they have big gypsy dogs lying around in them). I love looking at magazines and also cruising the other blogs to see what the rest of the world is doing. Culling images and thought processes from other bloggers makes me want to make my home a beautiful and meaningful place to live. I’m still working on making my new home beautiful. Here’s some pics from the last one.
Besides beautiful rooms, I’m inspired by a large view in my face. I snap at them with my camera sometimes and then play with them on my iPhone apps. No picture ever does a vast landscape justice. I’ve seen mountains that will break your heart.
Family, Friends & Loved Ones
These people meet me on planes that inspire introspection and inspiration. I’m grateful for them eternally.
Color and Pattern
These are the driving forces in decision-making when it comes to my own choices for making my home a beautiful place to live. I have love affairs with colors and patterns, sometime brief and fleeting, sometime deep and long-lasting.
I love to hit the road. Before I moved to LA, I was working with my Dad to fix up a 1968 Vintage Shasta Camper Trailer. My goal was to turn it into a traveling gypsy adventure (working my internet based job from it). I don’t require a camper for travel of course, but I am inspired by the thought of the lifestyle!
I’m moved to the core by music, inspired to say the least. I choose to share the video below because I’ve watched it one hundred million times these past few weeks, but also because I’m inspired by the subject matter. I tear through a lot of music, you can catch my musical inspirations on my AudioMuffin Twitter page: twitter.com/bootsy42
