[inspiration]

Art is the desire of a man to express himself, to record the reactions of his personality to the world he lives in.  ~Amy Lowell


Expressing myself? Oh, yeah. I'm all over le artistic expressions, darlinks. That's why you can often find me elbows-deep into a DIY, working on an outfit, a house, a graphic design, a photography collection, a recipe, or even a hairstyle. 


In no particular order of importance. I take 'em as they come.


As time marches on and I log in more blogging hours, you're going to see some of those random projects pop up around here. So nice of me to share, right? *ahem* It's just the nature of the bloggy beast, though. [The beast is a puppy, I've decided. Sweet and adorable with REALLY SHARP TEETH that cut away at your patience when you're, oh, say, modifying something important on your blog. I'm just sayin'.]


Before you start to wonder [if you haven't already, that is] where I get some of my inspirations, I'm going to give you my #1 resource pick for each category below. I'll be adding more resources as time goes by, but for now, this is as good as it gets.


'Til, you know, I add more. =) So check back!




[HOME AND DECOR]


Ana White's Knockoffwood. DEFINITELY. I cannot tell you how awesome this site is, you're just gonna have to check it out yourself. 


[FOODIE LOVE]


Currently loving Bakerella, which is, of course, the last blog I should be dwelling on. ;) I can't help it, though - since I have allrecipes for a bestie [their app is a lovely thing.] I can dream about things like cake pops ALL I WANT. =)


[GRAPHIC/WEB DESIGN]


Pixels & Ice Cream inspired my current layout. I LOVE that they have free PS brushes, too. So nice of them to share, yes?


[FASHION]


Love, Maegan. Great eye for outfit coordination and blending styles. You can find references to her on le blog, too, 'cause my fashion sense gave me a serious side-eye when I found her page. Gotta love it!


[HAIR AND MAKEUP]


Kandee Johnson. Hands down my favorite - check out the YouTubes for her tutorials, 'cause they kind of really rock.


[DIY]


P.S. I made this - Um, LOVE THIS SITE. I like to pretend I'm crafty, but there is no way I could do with an old hair roller and a piece of string what this gal can do. #1 fan here, for real.
