Liberty Post

I know it's been hit and miss with my posting lately. Life gets busy, as I know you all understand that one. My post today is all about getting a lot of bang for your buck.

I find Liberty Post not only full of fun things to look at, but she leaves me with thoughts to ponder. I love her attitude and tell it like it is personality......only to be true to herself. She bold, she's caring......she has something to say.

Her site has a full array of information........crafty things, bargains, photography.......great photography, food.........I leave feeling good every time I visit.
At first when I saw this photo, I thought...... "this girl is serious.......she keeps her magazines in plastic sleeves?.......really?" but what she really does is tears out the pages that inspire her......then places them in plastic sleeves for later viewing. Sounds like a great idea.......although that would require more time than dropping them into a basket like I do. :)She also knits.......but what I love about this photo is the bag. I love that bag.

So many things going on with this bottom photo.......first of all, just let me say.......anyone who can pull of wearing these rings has gotta be cool. Me? I would just look like I was wearing my mothers jewelery........I couldn't pull it off. Then of course the blue water, the shell AND those rings.......another great photo. It's the kind of photo you can stare at for a very long time.
I mentioned that she takes great photos? This q-tip photo is so cool..........Yes, I know it's only q-tips......but sometimes the coolest things are already around us, we just have to find them.The symmetry pulled me in.

There is no doubt she has style.........would love to see more of her home. hint hint.I hope you enjoy Liberty Post. Really, there is something there for everyone, really! Fashion, Food, Crafty stuff, and she even directs you to a few great blogs. Finding more blogs is always good.

I will leave you with something she has on her side bar. I love this girl.

My Dream
"My dream is to drive around the world pulling a shiny Airstream behind me. My Golden Retriever sitting in the passenger seat reading maps. A decent-sized purse. All critical travel items tossed inside. My camera. Baby-Cam. Laptop. My journal. My gouache paints, brushes and fine-tip sharpie pens. My sunglasses. Comfortable shoes. A great pair of jeans, long-sleeved (white?) man's shirt, suspenders, silver jewelry and push-up bra just in case I find a cake baker or coffeehouse on the side of the road along the way. I would pay someone to stay home to wash my baseboards and I wouldn't feel guilty at all for having a minimalist mantel. I would just keep on traveling until all the stories that I need to tell were complete. Then I'd go home and have a bath." - Liberty Post

Hey, I save my inspiration in sleeves, too! Unless it's online... I have a butt-load of bookmarks/favorites, believe you me! *B

I do the notebook thing too. I have them sorted out in different notebooks; like one for decorating, one for photography, one for crafting, etc. The only magazines that I keep all together are my beloved scrapbooking mags.

And for online journals, blogs, and various other sources of inspiration....I print a good portion of those resources out and save them in notebooks too. Or I save the web page as a digital file and burn it to CD for further use later on. That way I'm not so confined by my favorites list (bookmarks).
