Sometimes being a creative has its drawbacks. For me, it really came this week as I thought about narrowing the fields for how I am creative. But, all of it flows together. And comparison isn’t good – but if you don’t see anyone ever better than you – how can you improve?
Well, I wanted to share some websites with you – ones that inspire me to be better at what I LOVE to do. I am a creative person in most every field: from parenting, our weekly and daily schedules, photography, cooking, handlettering, cards, etc. So, enjoy these websites and let me know some ones I can look at too!
Griffin Gibson Photography – a local to me photographer that I hope to contact soon (a friend mentioned her name to me) and take some lessons from.
Mallory Ward Photography – another young photographer that has an eye for special people and the every day. I am having time with this girl this week.
Holly and Flora – this budding wine expert and foodie takes beautiful photography of the special and unique and fresh and local foods and spirits she makes in her home in Denver. I always love any time I get to chat with this long-time friend.
All She Wrote Notes Calligraphy – I get the honor of hanging out with this girl in Chapel Hill in July. Looking forward to a mini photo shoot and learning about her craft! I love that she does it all free hand – she doesn’t print out what she does.
Adventures in Cooking – Her photography and inspiration behind her food is amazing. Simple, rustic, beautiful.
Elyse Fitzpatrick – Her writing. Straight forward, gospel centered. That’s how I like to write. Oh, to write like her (one day, maybe, ha!)
Laura Hooper Calligraphy – The travel, the style, the flare. Love it.
One other note: You’ll hear more about this in the days ahead….but I love living creatively. I have thought about that this year – fighting the mundane, living and dwelling in creative beauty. There is beauty all around us – so make every moment beautiful. Glimpses of our Creator are all around us. And beauty reflects him too. I’ll be doing a series of blogs and photo sessions that reflect this theme as I introduce a new direction for this blog.
Be inspired. Live Creatively. Dwell in Beauty.
