Inspiration Places Around the Web

By Danielle of The Merriweather Council

Besides the usual cruising of Etsy and visiting my favorite shops, I have a few other daily stops where I get my creative wheels turning and start to feel inspired.

My number one place to find inspiration online is We Love Indie, which catalogues posts from art, design, and lifestyle blogs in one place, you can either click through to the "source" of the images on the home page or just browse. It's also a great way to find new blogs to follow. There is always something new to look at and it's updated frequently. There are tabs on top to narrow the categories as well!

Paper n Stitch is also full of great inspiration. There are two pages for Paper n Stitch, the Boutique and the Blog. The boutique is a collection of featured exhibitors, and is basically a shopping page, while the Blog highlights some of these sellers and their work, and provides useful tips, tricks and ideas for makers, artists and designers.

There are tons of beautiful blogs out there, I find this one, All the Mountains, to be very simple, easy and full of wonderful things including fine art, sculpture, craft, and photography.

For friendly pick-me-ups, isight and a fresh burst of color, I like Heartmade Blog, run by a wonderful lady named Mayi Carles. She posts great handmade finds, interviews with makers, and business tips as well.

I also like to save images from these and other places to a folder on my computer to look at when I need some quick inspiration or a little burst of happiness.
