The ladies in these blogs are giving me a big doze of inspiration today (and yesterday). Let’s start with my most favorite one; a blog I discovered last evening:
The Craftberry Bush belongs to an extremely talented woman. She breathes and emits talent at every turn, and makes things with great ease – as if it’s only normal to make beautiful things at a whim. She made some Panda-oriented cut-outs for her church summer camp, and I cannot believe she did not even use the computer or Photoshop to doctor her originals. She actually drew up Pandas with bamboo backgrounds using real colors. Wow! I don’t think this lady realizes just how much talented she is!
The Centsational Girl is another blog with a multitude of ideas; it has an amazing archive. It took me a whole week to skim through so many pages and ideas – and still I was not able to reach back to her post number 1. This blog can really be a creativity library for anyone looking for new, fresh, and current ideas to update their furniture with cool painting tips, and to decorate with a twist of good taste and personality.
Holy Craft! is another cool inventory that takes you in a crafts tour around the web, it basically refers you to craft projects from other blogs (or so I gathered). You can check out the tutorials page for lots of fun, chic, and creative crafts. Be ware, though, you might get stuck forever while skimming thru this blog; the ideas (and the photography) are just too awesome! The mirror above comes from craft & DIY guru Martha Stewart’s Crafts Department, an awesome place for ideas, projects, and inspiration.
In the “Hints and Tips” section right at the end of the this tutorial, the crafter in Sew 4 Home blog had this to say (hahahahahah – if you were a cat owner you would totally relate):
“I had a lot of help from one of my kitties on this project. I kept stashing all the sharp stuff in a drawer, but I still had to re-cut a couple pieces because after she sat on everything, I lost the nose and one eye. It’s a little easier, not to mention safer, to shut the door during construction.”
