In need of inspiration?
Me too, for some strange reason. Thankfully, we have amazing customers and friends who are doing incredible things; I've decided to feature some of them over the next several weeks and months. They won't all be people who are working with our fabrics and yarns, but they will all be making things that can be made using eco-friendly materials should you choose to do so (and we do, of course, assume you will).
Today's choice? Living Creatively, "The Online Community Dedicated to Creativity". From Australia, there's inspiration galore in this web site, with articles, profiles, reviews, and more. My favorite part? The projects, of course.
(Read on to learn more about the projects on their site...)
From the Piggy Bank Purse for your favorite little person (they claim it's for a little girl, but I think it's much more unisex depending on the child) to the absolutely glorious knitted frog (and how that could not inspire someone, I'm just not sure!), from an easy placemat to great sewing projects that range from simple-but-cute stuffed birds to several different styles of apron, there are ideas galore. And with new issues coming out monthly, I hope to see even more ideas regularly. I can't wait until the promised crochet patterns are posted!
Living Creatively bills themselves as:
"your place to discover what’s happening in the world of creativity, and to unleash some of your own. Every issue, we uncover the best on offer in the worlds of art, craft, design, urban living and fashion from around the world or right next door.
Significantly, we understand today’s creative crafters and artisans, because we’re craft-makers and artists, designers and fashion-fiends ourselves. We know our mums and our nannas, bless them, aren’t alone in contributing to today’s crafting picture. We know that the new generation arts & craft-maker is young or young-at-heart, stylish and loves handmade creativity in all its forms. We know the simple joy that comes from living creatively."
They may not be my only place to discover what's happening, but I can definitely see adding Living Creatively to my list of sites to visit when I'm needing inspiration and ideas. If you're in a rut, as I've been, check them out!
