inspiration from you

i just can’t express to you the appreciation and gratitude i feel for each of you who read my things i’m afraid to tell you post earlier this week. your comments made my day.. no, my week.. no, my year!

many of you say that i inspire you, but the truth is that you inspire me. above are just a few of the comments (or excerpts from comments) from you all this week that i found incredibly inspiring. i swear i have the best readers in all the blogosphere!

i loved putting this together so much, i might just have to make this a regular column as well. you.all.are.so.inspiring. thank you!

love, bonnie

design inspired by the latest vegnews magazine.

to kick things off, i’ve got two special features coming today from blogs and shops that i found during comment time yesterday. they are so splendid i had to share them with you!  yes, i click over on every shop or blog when you comment, and am always blown away by what i find.  i’m sure you’re tired of hearing me saying “oh, cute bloggie” or “love your shop!”- so today, i’m going to do something to show you that not only do i adore, appreciate and love you, but that your talents absolutely astonish me! here’s to you!

middle row :: keys coaster, bird’s nest, crafty mouse card

bottom row :: free spirit bicycle notebook, nico initial mug, bicycle card

i found rock scissor paper yesterday and have been obsessed with their *adorable store ever since.  this sister-sister team has some of the cutest items- and they are all right up my alley! i’m talking owls, woodgrain, woodland animals, and feel good sayings.  they are affordable and the perfect solution for gift giving, invites, coasters, cards, and more!


yup, you guessed it.  not only is their store amazing, but they have a fabulously inspiring blog to accompany it.  make something happy certainly makes me happy! every post is filled with inspiration, craft projects, art, recipes and the like. grab a cup of tea and go get inspired!
