Super Saturday Selections – Inspirations and Motivations


(day 15 abc)

The focus of this little blog is to pass on tips/advice/suggestions to help you sell your hand-made crafts.  Every now and then I like to take a break and feature other crafters along their adventures in selling.  Today, I’m actually going to dive a bit off the normal and showcase a few different crafting blogs that I think need to be checked out.  They at least offer some pretty good inspiration when you are low on ideas yourself 😀

Gift Ideas for Poor Creative Souls is just so full of creative creations!  From painted rocks to dixie-cup strand of lights and different uses for mason jars…they are all just so much fun.  Positively anything can go into making wonderful little creations (anyone recycle to save money AND resources?)

Haha.nu isn’t necessarily a blog about anything in particular.  They seem to highlight or showcase other blogs or pictures that can serve as motivation.  A lot of them seem to be found in nature, which can serve as an amazing source of inspiration if you are ever really stuck hard.

Make: Technology on Your Time isn’t necessarily a “crafting” blog like you might think.  I would categorize it as a “geek” blog because of all the techno blabber you will run into.  Although they do offer some pretty unique solutions to common creative problems.  It might be worth your time if you enjoy watching a 3d print of Yoda’s bust being made.

Popular Mechanics has a How-To section that offers lots of DIY projects for around the home.  Not necessarily something that you can sell, but it’d still be pretty handy to know about some of these things.  I think that DIY is great in that it can save you lots of money and your guaranteed to create it the way that you want it (unless you just bomb the whole project, in which case, maybe hiring a professional would be a better bet).

The Cotton Monster is just so stinking adorable!  They recycle different fabrics and make these cute little monsters and other things out of it.  If you are in need of a cute fix, I definitely recommend clicking over here for a few seconds.

This is actually my first time to use StumbleUpon, so I’m hoping that it will spark some ideas in myself as well, and that you enjoy what I’m sharing.  I like to share, and if you want your own blog/shop/whatever to be shared, just leave a comment and I will most certainly be glad to do that.
