inspiring home garden

I don't know if you have a garden, a balcony or maybe only the passion for gardening but I found that nice way to make over a simple corner of the house into the greener side. I love the idea of Twinings metal boxes that become pots.

animal bag

Those bags are beautiful. They have been hand printed in a Bavarian Forest workshop that is over 400 years old, these 100% linen bags are sure to delight. Each piece is slightly unique (due to the handmade nature) and shows traditional motifs from the Bavarian Forest. You can buy the bags on Horne.

crafty superstar

The other day I was surfing on the net and I found that book: Crafty Superstar: Make Crafts on the Side, Earn Extra Cash, and Basically Have It All. I think I'm going to buy it, because I am interested to the subject (I have a DaWanda store that doesn't work too much). The illustrations are nice and the themes are helpfull.
The business guide for part-time crafters includes advice from craft superstars such as Jenny Hart, Jessica Manack, Grace Bonney, Jenny Harada, Cinnamon Cooper and many more.

anna: an interview

Another interview for you! She is Anna Niestroj and her blog is Blinkblink, I found her on the net looking for blog of people that lived in Berlin. By now she moved from Berlin to Zurich.

Me. I have tagged your blog into my bookmarks with the tag " lifestyle ", if you'd give only one tag to describe your Blinkblink, what term would you use?
(I tagged you as " lifestyle " because you write about your life through your picture)
Anna. Various - but " lifestyle " fits as well :)

Me. What is the triggering reason that makes you create a blog? Anna. My blog is more or less the only constant thing in my life and represents all the things that I like.

Me. Today do Blinkblink's project coincides with your daily-job? If so how much time has elapsed before that could happen?
(I've seen you're a designer, what kind of? You work on product design or graphic one? You also got a DaWanda shop, does it work for you?)
Anna. Blinkblink has nothing to do with my " daily job ", so far. Except the fact, that its often about design. I'm a BA in Visual&Motion design (communication design), used to various design-techniques. I actually love design and everything related to it. I moved to zurich a week ago for my master of arts at zhdk (field of excellence: trends). My DaWanda shop worked very well, so it came to the point that due to the rights I am no longer allowed to act as a private seller. Next step is to make blinkblink official, what is my aim for 2010: more blinkblink, its not really a profit thing, it takes way too much time, but you see, some people are doing yoga, I am doing these little handmade things, they keep me up.

Me. Tell me a little bit about the process of reserarching inspirations for your blog, where do the ideas come from?
Anna. Blog posts of mine always consider special things that I am busy with, things that I do / see / hear / buy / make / … at that very moment. I like to tell my personal stories, showing images. but sometimes I prefer just words, it depends on my mood. My blog is personal, without showing too many intimate details. Its mainly a place for things that I like and do. Mostly uncomplicated or without a special sense.

Me. How many hours do you dedicate to the blog daily/weekly?
Anna. It changes. Sometimes one hour per day, sometimes one hour per week. It depends on my mood, employment or even on the weather. Blogging is something I like to do in my spare time, I don't want to feel forced by it.

Me. What does a typical day at work involve for you?
Anna. As a freelance designer I do not have a typical day at work. Busy and lazy days come and go. At the moment I am a full-time student again, but the past year I managed at least 3 jobs at the same time. Sometimes in home-office, sometimes outside in studios agencies. But never before 10 pm ;)

Me. Do you collaborate with mag or other blogs? If so, which one?
Anna. I sometimes participate at the ehrenwort-blog, due to my recent changes in life I unfortunately had not much time for any submissions of this kind...

Me. How much time do you dedicate by reading other blogs?
Anna. Too much I guess ;D. No, I really love reading blogs of all types. Rather the creative ones. I do not read a lot of books, I have always been this magazine and cartoon type, just flickering, thats why I love blogs, looking at them is free, fast and I can give my reactivies… I often see more in an image than in a bunch of words. But I admire intelligent texts with some good thoughts.

Me. What tips can you get to someone that will start a blog?
Anna. Just do what YOU like to do. Its your time & space. Create your own images and stories.

Me.Which are your favourite blogs by the moment? What tag describes them in a better way?
Anna. Have a look at my blogroll ;) you will find creative people from all over the world.

Me. What are you looking forward to?
Anna. Spring, an inspiring and successful time in zurich at zhdk, bathing in the rhein, limmat and zurichsee in summer and fresh handmade stuff for my shop.

Thank you Anna!

chelsea: an interview

Chelsea Fuss from the blog {frolic!} has happily answered to my questions. One of the reasons why I love her blog is because it is really an inspirations notebook.
The picture on top comes from her styling portfolio ElseaChelsea.
Let's start:

Me. I have tagged your blog into my bookmarks with the tag " inspiration ", if you'd give only one tag to describe your {frolic!}, what term would you use?
(you say that your blog is your daily inspiration notebook)
Chelsea. I think the name Frolic! is extremely appropriate. It's a little gander through all the pretty parts of life. Some real. Some I dream of.

Me. What is the triggering reason that make you create a blog?
Chelsea. I was looking for a creative outlet and a place to file away and share all the lovely things I come across.

Me. Today do {frolic!}'s project coincides with your daily-job? If so how much time has elapsed before that could happen?
(I know that you are a floral designer, but sometimes blogging can be considered as a job - and you got a lot of sponsors)
Chelsea. Blogging is half my job. The other half of my job is floral and prop styling and sometimes floral design. I was blogging for almost two years before I took the leap back into freelancing.

Me. Tell me a little bit about the process of reserarching inspirations for your blog, where do the ideas come from?
Chelsea. I am researching products or styles for a client or a photo shoot and the posts are actually a result of that research. Other posts are resources I've had on file for years. Other bloggers and creatives inspire me as well. I am mostly inspired by the changing seasons and try to let my posts revolve around whatever I currently love.

Me. How many hours do you dedicate to the blog daily/weekly?
Chelsea. It varies depending on what other freelance jobs I have. Some weeks It will be a few hours a day and some weeks blogging will be like a full time job, 8 hours a day or more. I seem to always be behind on emails and ideas that I want to incorporate into the blog.

Me. What does a typical day at work involve for you?
Chelsea. As stated previously, because I am a freelancer it can really vary week to week. Some weeks, it's all day on the computer like an office job. Other weeks, I quickly check into blogs and emails in the morning and then spend the day location scouting, prop shopping, putting together ideas, photographing articles or styling a set.

Me. Do you collaborate with mag or other blogs? If possible, what?
Chelsea. I write articles for Project Wedding and in the past have created DIY articles for Once Wed. I love collaborating with other bloggers and will hopefully be able to do more of that in the coming year.

Me. How much time do you dedicate by reading other blogs?
Chelsea. Sadly it has decreased a lot over the past few months. I get too overwhelmed to read all my favorites every day. I love blogs but I truly think they are best when taken in doses and I think it's best to read them when you need inspiration, not just as an escape or a way to pass time. That said, I love the community and try to check in and comment on my favorites at least once a week. It's probably anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour or two a day.

Me. What tips can you get to someone that will start a blog?
Chelsea. Blog about what you love. Do not try to be like anyone else. Don't start a blog to make money. Do it for yourself.

Me. Which are your favourite blogs of the moment?
Chelsea. Olivet, Sunday Suppers, Katy Elliott, Fortysixth at Grace, Ill Seen, Ill Said, Ruby Press, The City Sage, so many more!

Me. What are you looking forward to?
Chelsea. I just moved into a new apartment and I am excited to see if I can conquer some interior decorating projects. I think Interior Design is one of the hardest disciplines and I hope to prove to myself that I can put together something I am proud of and like to live in.

Thank you Chelsea, I love that interview.
