Polly from Counting Your Blessings always has the most ingenious ideas for repurposing things. Her Friday Flea Markets are fabulous. One of my favorite things are the Victorian styled wallets she creates from vintage fabrics.
Cerri from Little Pink Studio sells the most fun and original things. Her original works of art are magical. I love her buttons, but my favorite thing is the vending machine plastic bubble that is filled with vintage bits and bobs of fantastic fun.
Andrea at Velvet Strawberries is just lovely. Her blog is lovely. Her store is lovely. She herself has kindness and talent wrapped up in one big silk bow. Her shop, One Hundred Wishes, is filled with frothy goodness. I love the Coccoina glue. I will not use anything else. But my favorite things are her ribbon and millinery. It is such wonderful quality.
Heather at Present Past Collection is another favorite of mine. Her blog provides such creative inspiration. She is such a wonderful photographer. Seemingly everyday events become priceless bits of beauty when captured by her lens. Her store is currently being restocked and I am checking daily to see when it reopens.
Is there anyone who inspired you to begin blogging? For me it was Candice at Peacoats and Party Hats. Back in January of 2008 I was in a serious creative funk. I attended one of Candice's scrap booking and crafting events: a vintage valentine banner. During the course of the evening my creative spirit was restored. I shared with her how much I loved to scrapbook but that in this season of my life I don't have much time to do it. She told me to upload my photos to a blog (what's that? :) and jot down thoughts so that when I was ready to scrapbook, none of the memories would be forgotten. And so I began my little blog, thinking it was only for myself. Now here I am 200 posts and many new friends later.
For those of you who cannot attend one of Candice's events, she sells the kits (with detailed instructions) in her shop. They are sooooooo wonderful. I love this recent party hat kit.
