Breaking Designer's Block: Introduction

Ever find yourself wanting to make something but fighting Designer's Block?  I have, and I know many, many others have.  It doesn't matter what art medium you use be it painting, ceramics, jewelry, or any other art/craft.  We all have moments of Designer's Block and the places to find design inspiration are numerous and more or less the same for all mediums.  Below are some of the places you can find design inspiration:

-Nature
-History
-Technology
-Colour
-Other art forms
-Texture
-An inspiration morgue

This is just a brief introduction to a topic I'm going to try and discuss in more detail over the next few weeks.  I will address each item of the above list in more detail and explain how they can help you break Designer's Block.
