{Think Outside the Blog} Lil Luna

Hello! This is Ashley's friend Rachel, from Family Ever After. We all love and adore Ashley. While she is taking some time off, I've organized a series involving some of her favorite bloggers. Over the next couple weeks, you can check in with some of the internet's most adored bloggers, and find out what makes them think outside the blog. We love you Ashley, and look forward to your return!

Hi there Mommy by Day, Crafter by Night Readers.
My name is Kristyn and I blog over at Lil' Luna.
I adore Miss Ashley and am happy to be filling in for her while she is dealing with the loss of a loved one. No words can express the sadness of losing someone, but I'm praying that Ash can find comfort during this time of need (Love you, girl!)
I love the idea of "Thinking Outside the Box" for this Series! I've tried to think of all things that inspire me, and I don't know if I can pinpoint it to one thing because I find inspiration EVERYWHERE!

One of my fav places to find inspiration is just at the STORE... Hobby Lobby, Target, you name it! I love raiding the dollar bins and putting things together like a puzzle to form awesome creations.
{BHG is by far my FAV magazine - SO much inspiration, especially their holiday issues!}
I also find so much inspiration in MAGAZINES. I LOVE hitting up the magazine section at Sam's Club and buying all sorts of magazines at a discount to scour and use for future ideas.
I also LOVE getting inspiration from my KIDDOS!! Seeing the things they love and need has helped me to come up with lots of kid projects like our Eating Charts that have been super helpful. :)
Last of all, the best place I find inspiration is from all of the talent in Blog Land (YOU!!) I find most of that via Pinterest and Link Parties, but I LOVE, LOVE LOVE seeing new ideas and featuring them or using parts to form my own creations. I've always said that there is SO much talent out in blog land and it's just a matter of finding it! Once I find a blog I really enjoy I try to reach out and let them know how much I like them. I'm glad I've done this because it's helped me form great friendships with these bloggers, and I wouldn't give it up for anything. My blog friends are my best IRL friends!!
In the end, inspiration can be found anywhere. You just have to be looking for it. :)
I'm so glad I was able to be here today and hope Ashley can come back soon with all her cute tutorials.
In the meantime, here are some fun St. Patrick's Day Ideas you might enjoy. :)
Come on over and say HI!
XO - Kristyn
