  1. Great advice…I agree that you should write ideas down. Otherwise, poof, they’re gone! 🙂

    • Yes Sherri, ideas are like butterflies. They appear for a few seconds, but then they fly away quickly. It’s hard to remember them, unless we capture them in writing, or sketches.

  2. Thanks so much Elsa, need to keep reminding myself of some of these. Now I am off to clean my workspace!

    • You’re welcome, Ana! Have fun cleaning your workspace!

  3. Perfectly perfect list! And yep I keep sketch pad’s and notebook’s everywhere. I find I need them mostly in my purse, to whip out anywhere I am inspired,and by my bedside, where i browse through mag’s and my computer, and have the occasional midnight brainstorm.:0

    • Me too, Dawn. I keep sketch books and notebooks everywhere, including my car. I use them all the time. I’m glad that you liked this list!

  4. the most difficult for me, nowadays, is to stay away from the computer…! besides being a work tool and a way to get lots of inspirational sources, it’s also a way of getting feedback and colaborative work… hard one, #4! 😉

  5. Wonderful list! Great video! And all sorts of follow-up reading. Such a gift! I will be sharing with followers of Mosaic Art NOW. Grazie!

  6. Hi great list! The video link says it no longer exists though.
