Le Animale
I was immediately drawn to Laura's work after being introduced through Jessica Swift's blog. I dream about animals, paint animals, and I love symbolism.

 

Jessica Swift
Her work just inspires me to keep painting. And I love hat she started a Get Brave Facebook—a place for us all to share our bravery.

This post will always remind me how far I've come this past year. I'm so thankful to have my blog to document life.

  content in a cottage   Guilty Crafter

Heidi Swapp
I remember seeing Heidi Swapp's Christmas tree many years ago and it's stuck with me ever since. I was inspired to realize that even something as traditional as a Christmas tree could be artful. She stood my idea of Christmas decorating on its head. Literally.

 

Content in a Cottage
You know that question, "If you could have dinner with anyone famous, who would it be?" I can never decide between David Sedaris, or his very, um, fun/wacky sister Amy Sedaris. When her book "Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People" was released, I was thrilled. I love Amy's tongue-in-cheek humor and the idea that you can be irreverent about crafting and still love it but see the humor in it. Plus, I am kind of in love with her craft room.

  No Pants 2011   Guilty Crafter

Olive and Love
I recently met a (rare for my area) fellow blogger in my neighborhood. Her blog is full of amazingly creative ways she's decoratehd her home. Knowing her and following her blog has rekindled my interested in being more creative with my own home. It's nice to have someone local who says, "YES- you should TOTALLY buy that industrial sized wooden spool!" Laura is most known for her amazing DIY shutter wall in her dining room (recently featured in Country Living magazine) but I love this DIY skirt-to-curtain she made for her little girl's room.

 

No Pants 2011
I really love when a blogger sets a challenge for him or herself. I enjoyed following along Amber Clisura spent all of 2011 without wearing pants. Not once. And she added in tutorials for some of her skirts along the way.

The Baby Guy Gear Guide
Finding a great crafting tutorial on a non-crafting blog is like finding a hidden treasure. This site usually rates baby gear but the author (a childless guy, interestingly) decided to get crafty and I'm so glad he did.

 

Foo Foo La La
I don't always feel justified in taking the time to keep completely up to date on reading daily or weekly entries. Blogs are, however, a great time *saving* way to keep up with friends and what they're working and you can do this at 2 in the morning without calling them and waking them up. I loved seeing this beautiful quilt tutorial my friend (and Craft Wars assistant) recently put on her blog.

  the lunch tray   Guilty Crafter

Etsy
When I need to relax and just get lost in creativity, one of my go-to activities is to shop Etsy by color. It opens me up to just enjoying a world of color and inspiration without having a singular focus.

 

The Lunch Tray
I love making my kids cute lunches. Stems from my memory of getting something from a thrift store. I was 4 and my mom picked up a Partridge Family lunch box (which she later used to store her painting supplies before I reclaimed it as a teen for a funky everyday purse.) I still have mine.

Mark Montano
I love meeting fellow crafters who are generous with their ideas.
Mark Montano is at the top of this list for me. I love his
easy-to-follow tutorials.

 

Uncommon Goods
Many times, I find my crafting inspiration from shops and catalogs. Sometimes something I see for sale helps spark my creativity. Take this example from one of my favorite sites.

Criando Seus Moveis
Here's a great example of how art can bring people from different backgrounds together.

 

The Spotted Fox
This wonderful idea kills me a little. After using my vintage TV for a few photos, I donated it back to Goodwill when I could have done THIS. *Sigh.* Is it any wonder that crafters sometimes walk a fine line between using their supplies and hoarding them?
