So do any of you follow any blogs that aren’t strictly related to your craft of choice? I have a collection of bear-making, sewing and cooking blogs that I follow, but also some design ones for more generic inspiration. The two main ones I follow are Design Seeds, which is great for colour combinations such as these:
The other one is Design Sponge which I only found recently, possibly through a Pin, and which has a range of inspiring posts each day, from business promotion to collections of cool, trendy and sometimes funky things to drool over. One such collection that I saw on Monday contained examples of trendy ‘cosy blankets and throws’ such as these:
Hmm, I thought, those look an awful lot like potential quilt patterns, and so many basic shapes that one could easily whip up. If one had the time *ahem*
So what sites do you follow for eye candy? Link me up!
look at all of this eye candy!
Nice b & w stuff. My main non quilty blogs would be cooking.
Repeat after me – I have 38 UFOs, I have 38 UFOs.
I'm a bit one dimensional on the blog front so perhaps I need to spread my creative wings a bit more (sorry that was a bit Oprah)…love Design Sponge – very cool!
Awwww, now I really want a sunny-side up egg! And that's all I can think of, so no designy linkies from me. :}
Yup, since there are only a few teddy bear blogs I follow some doggy blogs, kitty, dolly, YOU, Jock, Jack, The Clan, Sebastian, Wil, Wilbur, Honeypot Lane bears, Bellamine & Wendy – gee, there are move bear's blogs than I thought. Yippee.
I love design sponge! And thanks for the tip about design seeds – I'm off to check it out!
Lol at Sheila. I think she's right! Therefore I'm not telling you any of the design related blogs/sites I follow, mwah ha haaa.
Chez Larsson – Benita is another of my design/home crushes xxx
I can't keep up with my favourite bloggers as it is, I am not looking at this post.
I follow How about Orange
There is always something fun to see,
will definitely have to check out those two too though.
Lol at Sheila's comment (although its probably less now knowing you!) Love design seeds, but otherwise it's just quilty goodness for me :o)
Design Sponge is fun! I like Print&Pattern. I must admit I have trouble keeping up with visiting my quilting blogs so not much room to add more.
These are lovely sites! Haven't used anything like these before! Jxo
I'm not so good a finding inspiration, it either comes or it doesnt! By the time I've read and commented on blogs I dont have any more time to find new things 🙁
I love bears, raggedy dolls, Love love seeing what everyone is making and of course I love kitty and doggy blogs. I would love to have more time than I do to see more and more blogs. So many beautiful things out here to see.
I saw all your blankets on Pinterest! I follow quite a few revamp your crap type blogs. Don't think I'd ever make anything, but I like the ideas
Eye candy indeed! I love the beaded lemon yellow throw! I need to follow more design blogs. As of now, I just use Pinterest (not very helpful, I know) to look at pretty photos, but I should definitely check out these sites! Thanks!
too many blogs, not enough hours in the day! I check pinterest but just follow quilty and cooking blogs right now…and Paleo blogs
I can't stop looking at the last two images of this post. Just gorgeous.
I dont follow any blogs or specific sites but I gotta say since I found Pinterest Ive found a ton of ideas for home decor that I want to do !
I saw some these on Pinterest when you pinned them a while back and had to snag the first image of blankets for a quilt idea I am working on. 🙂 I like to peruse the design category on Pinterest when I need a little non-quilty inspiration. I also follow the blogs of a few surface designers and illustrators.
