I'm absolutely crazy about this print from TheatreClouds.

This embroidery hoop art is absolutely gorgeous, I want it in my room now!

I love this knee patch for tights tutorial from Ron, I've got so many ideas for different shapes I could try out (paw prints, yes?)

I wish I had known this when I was a teenager, it would have prevented to much heartbreak, from Rocketrictic

Live An Inspired Life: Emma's post about living an inspired life every day really resonated with me, especially her points about attitude not circumstances.

The Publishing Process: This made me laugh, and then made me kind of want to write a novel.

My Top 5 Free Ebooks For Creative Entrepreneurs: Ok, so I'm not actually planning on starting my own business (well, maybe one day, but no big plans currently) but I do always appreciate some free advice so Nesha's post was really useful.

Lessons Learned From My Hero, My Dad: Mandi's post was absolutely beautiful, and was another kick up the butt to get on with my own life.

The Januaries: Alli managed to describe perfectly how I have been feeling lately, so glad I now have a name for post Christmas slump.

6 Simple Vintage Alterations: This advice from Bekuh might just help lower my piles of clothes awaiting alterations.

  2. Great list - I particularly loved Mandi's post about her dad.

  3. Alice, I look forward to this list every week.  The Anais print is lovely, and Emma's article on living an inspired life was beautiful and motivational for me.  Definitely on of those articles I will keep going back to, to refresh my mind, spirit and drive.  Everyone needs a little encouragement now and again, and the encouragement you get from the person you don't know, might actually do more for me. 


  4. Paw print knee patches would be just about the cutest thing ever!! Lots of lovely links here - I loved Bekuh's alterations post too - I'm just after getting a sewing machine as a present and her post had lots of simple ideas for alterations I just hadn't thought of removing the sleeves from something. It's given me a keener set of thrifting eyes too now that I'm aware of the possibilities!

  13. Yes, that print is great!  I'll have to check out what else they have.  And I wish I was bold enough to do something like the embroidery hoops.  I love the colors! I'm working on a gallery wall for our living room at the moment.  Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)
