inspire co.

Thank you! Seriously...... Thank you for all your support. It's nice to get back on track and focus on like minded people. People who are forgiving, people moving forward. Every comment and email brought a smile to my face. Amy.....the owner of the blog I'm featuring today was one of those emails. So thoughtful. Thank you.
During all this, I have solidified my belief that no matter where or what we come from, we can all find that warm spot with creating. My wicked sense of humor has toyed with the idea of having Felony Fridays. Creating is healing, creating is restoring..........so if you've got a criminal past.......let me know. :) Cathy sent me this quote. I love it! "Let the refining and improving of your own life keep you so busy that you have little time to criticize others."
inspire co.
I have had Amy's site, in my future feature file for a very long time. I would have featured her a long time ago, but frankly........she intimidates me. She's just so.........so........stylish and inspiring. Her site is ...........is.........stylish and inspiring from the get go. It's all about being stylish and inspiring from every angle. The simpleness of her site design draws you in. I was afraid I wouldn't do her site justice.........I kept waiting.......the waiting is over.Very easy to navigate with the illustrations along the side bar.......very cute and so many places to explore. You KNOW you're going to like it there the minute you arrive. And I have an idea it's like that if you were lucky enough to visit her in person. Her house looks like the type you can just plop your bottom down and really relax, get a few belly laughs in and feel like you've been her best friend forever. Don't sit in that chair........I've got dibs.Amy specializes in helping you find the perfect gift. Not just any gift. These are original, fun and perfect...........I'm sure she'll help you if you're stumped. She made this above. I always love that sugar look. She sells some of that sugar on her site. "Poor some sugar on me!".........I couldn't help it.

Fun little "grab bags" she has. I want one just for the packaging. This is NO ordinary suitcase that you might see moving along the conveyor belt.......Isn't that darling? It's in her online store. Who hasn't seen these in a thrift store? Now you know what to do with them. Decorate, get crafty.

Now onto the really fun stuff.

Snooping.

Doors to her office.........her creating space..........her studio.I'm gonna sit here.........and watch the magic happen.I gotta go back and read up more. I wasn't sure if this was in her HOME studio, or a shop. But regardless........isn't it stunning? This has got to be the most perfect cabinets for craft spaces. Now you know why I was intimidated. And now you know why I'm just gonna sit in the chair.Inspire co. is another blog full of lots of great photos! Her site gives off a nostalgic feeling, the feeling of good times, simple times, safe times.

Go and visit her.......please let her know how you found her.........and then come back and let me know how much you enjoyed yourself.

So glad to hear that you're feeling back to your usual self! 'Cause how would we discover new ways to waste time without you?!? I've seen inspireco before, but it's been a while. I like it because everything has this sort of "fun" feel to it. Makes you want to redecorate your entire house in white and candy colors. Thanks Kim!

Amy is a delight. She is one of the main reasons I started blogging in the first place, her blog and website were so (aptly named) INSPIRING! She hosts a regular "Club Little House" miniature swap and it is too too cute. Everyone has fun when they visit Amy.

I know I've seen her somewhere before. Maybe I've stumbled onto her blog, but I think she must have been featured in a magazine or something. I remember thinking the same thing of her---it must be so nice to be so creative that it just obviously oozes out of everyone of your pores! Great feature!

Holly said...

Fabulous find! Thanks so much for featuring. Just ordered a few of the lollies for a little birthday party in June. =-)
