“really appreciated the “take a week to think about it” part of the post. Amazing what a little time does for creativity @MoxiePear” – @allisajacobs
“something Im coming to grips with – notebooks arent just for looking at, they are for filling with wonderful ideas” – @nisseworks
“Yes! The first point in Lisa’s post was about keeping a notebook to “dump” all those extra ideas into-I couldn’t function without mine” – @ohmyhandmade
“this morn I actually organized my multiple notebks all partially used, they are all now labeled for whatever usage ex: ideas, clients” – @ChicagoFnThreds
“@nisseworks I have this problem too. Helps to stockpile ideas when they’re flowing so you have something to work with in famine times.” – @sparrowscript
“I have so much craft stuff- I should pass it on to people who are passionate about them and focus on my passion” – @etsyshawlshop
“… I also keep a clipboard with a fill in style form so I can keep track of product and design ideas :)” – @atouchofwhimsy
“A collection of coloured #sharpies is also a must” – @myCHILDish
“…I keep 3 moleskine’s in my purse at all times! It’s great when I’m waiting to pick up the kids from their activities.” – @rebecca_jones9
“I think as creative people, we need creative business tools to get us motivated…plain old spreadsheets and lists just don’t help me” – @MoxiePear
