How do you catalog your ideas? Do you rip inspirational photos out of a magazine and put them on a bulletin board or notebook? Do you sketch out the design after seeing something that catches your eye? Or do you do it virtually with sites like Pinterest (there’s even an app coming soon for your iPhone)?

Personally, I’m totally excited about Pinterest. With me being able to read so many of my favorite inspirational magazines on an eReader, I’ve lost the ability to rip out favorite photos and look at them for inspiration. Now I’m not limited by magazines, I have the whole internet to pin!

    I am loving it too and I have suggestion for you, you can try internet marketing for your ecommerce site. It is 50% cheaper than conventional methods plus it influences the right target audience.

    I have a folder on my computer for inspiration pictures, and I organize them by categories. I really like the idea of that pintrest site though, with tags and such. Looks like a much better way to organize things. I’ll have to give it a try!

    Interesting! I need a better way to organize. Takes me FOREVER to find anything in my Google Reader starred items queue!

    My pinups are all digital. I save pictures of things I like on the internet digitally, filed according to their subject matter. I’ve been to Pinterest and I didn’t like it. It was too difficult to find some things I wanted to know more about.

    I am really loving Pinterst! I could never bear to rip up my favorite magazines, so I’ve never had a style board before. It’s so interesting to see the things I like coalesce.
