of course friends and family blogs are going to stay on my radar. so i am carefully weeding the rest from the good (good meaning, worthwhile) blogs from my google reader. it is currently exploding with over 1,000 blog subscriptions. that's insane. no wonder i get so sucked in. i was totally suffocating with other people's ideas; i couldn't come up with any of my own. so i'm whittling down and making the most of what i read and am inspired by. i thought i'd share a few favorite blogs that seem to have stuck with me.
scout's honor co. and design love fest / new-to-me designers i admire. i love designers who have a voice. these two have nailed it.
a cup of jo, creature comforts and design mom / longtime favorites, still daily reads.
into the gloss and the beauty dept. / best beauty blogs to get my glitz and glamour fill.
papercrave and ohsobeautifulpaper / i love bloggers who have a passion for paper.
ali edwards, elise joy, and kal / continue to inspire me to create art. with my own two hands.
cjane / it's ironic that i read very few writer-ly blogs; but hers is addicting. her stories remind me of the magic (and power) of weaving words together.
pacing the panic room / wordy and honest; ryan writes it all out on the page. a writer and photographer. his blog is inspiring in the way that it is a genuine document of his life. the tumblr site is like stepping inside his world for a minute.
caitlin creer interiors and little green notebook / dreamy house ideas for safekeeping.
simple song and oh joy / lots of eye candy and inspiration to scroll upon.
pugly pixel / fantastic freebies and enthusiasm about graphic designey stuff. love it.
the rockstar diaries / my fashion idol; the lipstick, her sparkle, the bikes. she's unstoppable.
blue lily blog / living vicariously through their adventures. always glorious pics.
jolie jolie design, design for mankind and oh hello friend / stylish, cheerful, inspiration all around.
