Inspiration for Your Thursday

Well hello there! I am so thrilled that the weather here in Southern CA has been so nice and summery! Not too hot, not too cold, not too June-gloomy...perfect! Today I want to share some links to things/people/ideas that are totally inspiring me these days!

First of all, I love Ali Edwards and all her fabulous ideas and such. So I am especially thrilled about her new "Tuesday Tutorial" series! My favorite thus far is this one from Heidi Swapp!

This blog packs a huge visual punch in the home decorating arena! Check out Desire to Inspire if you are in the mood to see some serious eye candy!

Some gorgeous layouts: love the arrangement, love everything she does, love the clustering, love the simple color scheme, and love how magical it is

Ever since my boyfriend taught me how to put YouTube videos on my iPod, I have become obsessed with finding awesome crafting tutorials and then watching whenever and wherever I want! Kristina Werner has an amazing library of card-making videos that I definitely recommend for your viewing pleasure.

The Simply Handmade blog has such great crafty ideas, not to mention a FREE mini-book download (Gen, isn't just heavenly??)!

This cute little jewelry display

Seeing people's workspaces is almost more inspiring than seeing the final product! I also love this one and this one too!

The teacups and carousel make me want to create another Disneyland album! Speaking of Disneyland, John and I need to renew our annual passes soon! Eek! It is always a huge investment but in our little world, it is worth every penny! We are such Disneyland-aholics and have now become spoiled for life! haha!

Right now I am reading How Starbucks Saved My Life and I have to say it is such a good read. Very inspiring to someone who is quickly becoming disenchanted with the job market...

Joann's is currently having a huge sale! I've already been there twice this week, where I bought some gorgeous tulle for all my tulle needs (hahah) and this because I have a sudden urge to incorporate paper into my jewelry :)

In other news, I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has so kindly purchased hair accessories from my shop. You have no idea how much it means to me to know that other people "get" what I'm all about! So thank you, thank you, thank you! :)
