PSST - Have you discovered Pinterest yet? I am in love. It's an easy way to "pin" your favorite photos you find on the internet, and it saves not only the photo but the link where you found it. You can also search for other photos to repin. It's like a huge, categorized inspiration board, but it keeps track of all your sources for you. Check out my pins here.
