Crafty Friday 6/10 - Inspiration

Where do you find inspiration for your crafting? I'd really like to know.

I get asked that questions a lot, but it mostly applies to my colors. I get asked how I choose colors and how I decide what colors to put together. Sometimes I have no idea where the ideas come from, but other times I can pinpoint an inspiring moment.

One of those moments came to me yesterday. We spent the day at the Toledo Zoo and as I'm walking around snapping pictures I realized I could translate these animal pictures into yarn, rovings and batts. I can see the browns and blacks, greys and greens. Not to mention the colors from the fish and birds. Can you imagine a clown fish batt? Where's Nemo? :o)

Just today I made a Tiger inspired batt. I'm having a hard time deciding if I can let it go. These animal inspired fiber goodies are going to be so much fun!

So where do you find inspiration?
