july 10th ~ 11th

Ooh, I couldn’t be more excited to be kicking off my weekend guest series with the fabulous, and always inspiring, Erin Loechner. The list of reasons why I’m jealous of her is pretty long, so I’ll just give you the highlights…

1) She is the creator and author of one of my favourite daily reads, Design For Mankind 2) Not only does she write all of the content for her own blog, but she is also a guest blogger on several sites, including HGTV.com, where she is documenting her home renovation project {also something to be jealous of, by the way!} 3) Her taste in art, design, jewelery, etc. is consistently fantastic  4)  And on top of all that, she’s really nice and pretty damn funny!

So there you go. That’s why I’m jealous of Erin. Want to find out who Erin is jealous of? Read on…

I’m jealous of… Miranda July

Face it; anyone who was once a Pop-a-Lock employee and is now an established filmmaker/author/performance artist wins a big, lovely trophy in my book. And when that someone encourages you to follow your dreams? Even more so.

Miranda has taught me to re-read my favorite fifth grade book, take time to braid someone’s hair and shown me the beauty of a quality landing page. She makes me laugh, cry and inspires like no one can.

Miranda, I salute you.

… and I salute you, Erin. Thanks for stopping by ; )

    Miranda July makes me so jealous! How can she be cute, brilliant AND funny? I love everything she does. Her website all written on her stove top is one of the most fantastic low-tech things I’ve ever seen.
