I am officially saying "Sayonara" to the Daily Etsian. It has been a wonderful, wonderful opportunity to meet so many creative people and share the love of creating together. However, I'm ready for a new... direction... venue...
Sooooooo.... I'll be blogging from
my poor, neglected blog. I want to be able to share more personal creations and not simply focus on Etsyolgy and Etsyisms. :)
We'll still be friends. Right? :) I hope so too.
Since I've graduated from college, I miss fall-time school supplies shopping. I pick up pretty pencils or blank notebooks with excitement, only to realize that I don't *really* need to buy them since I don't go to school anymore (which is why I'll be going shopping soon to buy a bunch of discounted school supplies for disadvantaged kids in our area... at least someone will get to enjoy cute school supplies!).
ANYWAYS, here are some great finds on Etsy. Can you smell the graphite from here?
I recently found Curly Girl Designs (see above) at a local store. I love Leigh's collage style with bright colors coupled with witty (and true!) sayings. So far, I've only bought Leigh's cards for other people, but that is soon going to change! Also check out Leigh's store, here.
Correction: the curly girl shop is located here.. Oops. Thanks, Leigh for pointing that out! :)
I'm back. Finally. I got married. We moved into an apartment. I got sick. I got better and then sick again. It's been a crazy couple of months, but awesome because I'm married to a great dude. Anyways...
I wanted to feature a couple of great resources for inspiration on Google books. I've never really utilized this part of Google except for college essay resources. Here are few of my faves. Most of these books are "previews" (due to copyright issues, I guess) and will only let you see part of the book. Just a little fyi.
Remember a while back we discussed what makes a good avatar? Well, I decided to show you some awesome examples I noticed around Etsy, Twitter, and the bloggersphere. What do you think makes these avatars so effective? Keep coming back for updates. xoH
So, a week or so ago, I asked you readers if anyone was interested in participating in the new feature: "Dream Feedback." J. Christina Huh responded, asking for ideas on how to improve her blog.
Soooo... wanna help a fellow creative? Please comment below with 1) one (or more) things you like about the blog. Be specific (design, color, font, layout, etc.) 2) one (or more) things she can do to improve the blog - again, please be specific. Thanks, guys!
PS If you're interested in being up a critique, just contact me here or comment on this post.
