After much thought, I've decided to change up Inspired By: Fridays to include not just interiors, but people, places, and things that inspire me as well. To kick off this newly vamped feature, I would really love to share with you the ways my March sponsors have been inspiring me.
I've been blog buddies with Michelle since I first started this journey and wrote mostly about scrapbooking. She has such a warm spirit and her creations are so full of life. Lately she has been creating some amazing home craft projects, like a granny square blanket, a quilt, and even some custom needlework pieces she designed! I'm so impressed. But most of all, I really want to find more time for scrapbooking after seeing this post she wrote!
Jenna and I are actually sort of neighbors, ya know! She lives in Columbus, Ohio, which is our state capitol. She is a graphic designer who blogs about lots of inspiring things, but this post really made me smile. In Ohio, we are finally experiencing warmer weather, but I've been cooped up in this house almost every day! I think Jenna has finally given me that extra push I need to be more purposeful about experiencing the great outdoors. I mean, come on, doesn't that look like so much fun?!
Kari is not only a blogger, but a fashion designer too! You may or may not know this, but I went to interior design school, and truly, truly loved being forced to draw sketches and come up with new, inspiring ideas on the daily. Kari does this on her own, and stays motivated in keeping up with her projects. Seeing this post by her has really motivated me to pick up my old pen set and start sketching out ideas. It's a great way to get the ideas flowing!
I really can't get over how generous Katrina is. She is really quite a brilliant web programmer and designer (a one woman band, so to speak!) who puts a lot of time and effort into helping those of us who are less knowledgeable and gifted in those departments. For instance, she has free downloadable graphics that she not only gives away to readers, but also teaches them how to customize them for their own purposes. What a swell gal. Makes you want to pay it forward, doesn't it?
I hope you enjoyed this little inspiring peek into my sponsor's blogging lives! If you would like to be featured on this blog, or would like to appear in a small ad, please check out this link (or click the image below) for information.
And don't forget to take a peek at my small sponsors for the month of March! They have a lot of fun things to offer as well.
