Things to think about. Thinks to look at and awe over. Things to laugh about.

  • Bloggers: a lot in this article about process optimization applies directly to blogging.
  • Phenomenal portrait photographs.
  • Fiction writers: why do you write fiction? This article gave me perspectives I hadn’t considered before.
  • My favorite job (not): revising.
  • A very good article about perspective (as in visual art).
  • Couldn’t get to the International Quilt Festival in Houston? Me neither, but my friend Frances went and posted a quick overview.
  • If I lived in New York City, I’d be looking for these origami sculptures in the garment district.
  • Whimsical stuffed creatures.
  • I love what Nathalie did with rubber stamps in her vintage ledger.
  • Illustrator Lee Gatlin recommends that artists post their work online.
  • Are you stuck in your story? Here are 10 tips to get it going again.

The Artist's Perspective

I see gorgeous old wood peeking out from behind peeling paint; what should be transparent, isn’t; the missing pane of glass is a portal into darkness.

4, 6, and 7 are especially beneficial for the new year.

  1. I’ve read a bunch of these memoirs and found a few to add to my TBR pile.
  2. Natural fashion.
  3. For all the writers. Especially the freelancers. Do you deserve a reward today?
  4. How to be a good father.
  5. I love The Frugal Crafter! Here’s an upcycling project she recently posted. I love the video as well as the instructions.
  6. Ways to put failures and setbacks into perspective. (Warning: the F-word is used liberally in this article.)
  7. Using the Da Vinci Schedule to increase your productivity and prevent burnout.
  8. I think my next quilt project for myself should be a red-and-white Christmas quilt. Some of these done up in Christmas fabrics would work very nicely.
  9. I’d love to see the tools this artist used to cut this lacy octopus.
  10. Why art matters.
  11. I find this sculpture particularly moving.
  12. Your creativity requires structure.
