WIP Wednesday - Catch Up

Am on hold again with my latest book (long, sad story. Waiting on publisher) -

-so I am using this brief reprieve to catch up on any number of long-delayed projects, such as assembling my 'treasure'/scrapbooks of awesome imagery. I have a number of these; differently themed, full of photos, postcards, images, quotes, sketches, etc... - that are used for inspiration and jump-starting creativity when needed.

Quote on the page in front of me: "It's the questions we ask, the journey we take to get where we're going that's more important than the actual answer. It's good to have mysteries. It reminds us that there's more to the world than just making do and having a big of fun."   Charles de Lint

How do you organize your sources of inspiration...?

Oh lord, I must do that! I've got, let me see (counts quickly) about 34 scrapbooks and a folder of things to put in them! (I have been keeping them since I was 17, hence large amount). I do like nosying at pics of your studio and workspace and in my opinion, there aren't enough of them...

Only one folder of things to put in them?? My 'to file' box overfloweth... (many of the postcards that are going in are signed Gretel on the back. Just sosyou know...) I haven't done this in a few years, and it's interesting to see what has already become outdated. Going to need to start all new ones next go!
