Inspiration boards

Recently, I started an e-class called Blogging Your Way. It has involved a lot of "firsts" for me--first e-class, first attempt of being a part of a forum, and a first attempt at an inspiration board. You see our homework this week was to create an inspiration board which might reflect our moods, our passions, our interests, and the direction we see for our blogs. Since, I blog primarily about my life in London, I decided to make a stylized version of the Union Jack flag, and then add some snippets of things I enjoy talking about on the blog. Since being in London, I've loved sharing about the history, the pop culture, the architecture, our travels and some British "home-grown" products and their stories. Hope you're enjoying the journey with me, and if you'd like to take a look at the creative blogs of our instructors, you can find Holly at Decor8 and Leslie at A Creative Mint.
Make it a great week!


  1. you certainly inspired me!

    and i just saw your scripture for haiti's chldren. so perfect.

  2. Ohhhh, I love this so much. Brilliant idea on the flag, wonderful colors, icons and special things about my favorite city!! Fantastic!

  3. Very well done Debi! It's good to be challenged, huh? I finally posted on my blog again today. It felt good and I've already had a comment from a new reader (actually the person who commented on this post of yours right before me)!

  4. Hello Debi! I'm coming over from BYW...Great inspiration board! I really like how you used the flag you created as the background, such a good idea! Thanks for sharing it!

  5. love the flay style, is a good picture for your blog...very well done...;)...and all these little tiny details...wonderful...;)...

  6. Wow I love this! So great how you planned it out and included different elements of London, it has a wonderful overall aesthetic. Its very eye-catching and graphic!

  7. Wow, this is fabulous! What a great idea. I really love your finished creation-it is so "you"! I will have to look into this idea-thanks for sharing it.

    Just had a good look at your previous posts too. I love the picture at Stonehenge. We also went on a freezing cold day (Winter Solstice was the next day) but I think that made it even more amazing for us. So glad I didn't run into any Griswald-like people! Did you see their ad on superbowl night?

    Enjoy the rest of the week and best wishes,

  8. Hi Debi,

    Your creation is so inspiring as it should be.
    Your scripture for Haiti's children is spot on too! I see you are a Beth Moore fan- me too.

    big hugs,

  9. Hello dear Debi, On my post today I have presented you and a few other of my favorite blogs with a Best Blog Award. I don't know if you are a no award blog, and I hope this is not a problem. I honestly just enjoy your site and love to refer anyone that might stop by. Thank you.

  10. Hi Debi, I am also a BYW student. I like your inspiration board. Very symmetrical and really like the colors that you picked.

  11. Hi Debi! What fun your blog is -I want to jump right in and visit these places with you!!! I love your post on the Harry Potter location. I did watch a few of the movies and remember this amazing place.
    Your inspiration board is really fun too. I love the idea of taking the flag and using it as a departure point -it is a great way to visually interpret a country. Wonderful.

  12. Hi Debi! The pastel collage flag is brillant!
    London is probably my favorite place ever, so I'm glad to see so many symbols of it in such a pretty composition!
    Thanks for sharing!
    Teammate @ BYW! :)
