i’m jealous of… something other than art.

I have said {many times} that when jealousy is kept inside it can become toxic, but when it’s said out loud, it can be turned into something incredibly positive. Thankfully, I have managed to do that for myself with art… the reason for starting this blog in the first place! It truly has been life-changing, and unbelievably cathartic. Well, somewhere during the past 2.5 years of writing these posts, I’m no longer only an artist… I’m also, officially, a blogger. So, you guessed it, now there are bloggers that make me jealous! I follow a bunch of extremely talented, intelligent, inspiring, and driven women {kick ass women to be exact} and I’ll tell ya, it’s hard not to be just a little bit jealous of their many fabulous successes. So I’m going to take my own advice… I’m going to say it out loud. Here’s a list of amazing bloggers that make me think Damn, I wish I tweeted that!

Top 5 {+ 2, because I couldn’t control myself} bloggers that make me jealous, and why:

Bri Emery ~ DesignLoveFest : one word. blogshop. Amazing, fun, sold out around the world, blogshop.

Victoria Smith ~ sfgirlbybay. Oh Victoria. Every time I talk to her she’s involved in something beautiful! I’ll just send you over to her press page, and you’ll see what I mean. Sigh.

Erin Loechner ~ Design for Mankind. Ok. This list could get way too long. Oh, I know… check out her own “Life List”. Note how many amazing things are already crossed off! I have no doubt that they will all have a line through them in the very near future!

Joy Cho ~ Oh Joy! She has her own lovely lifestyle blog, she’s the market editor at Anthology Magazine, and she has created/produced all sorts of beautiful products, including this stunning wallpaper. Gorgeous!

Tina Roth Eisenberg ~ Swiss Miss. Again, the list is far too long, but the short list goes something like this: she founded and runs CreativeMornings, TeuxDeux, Tattly and her coworking space called Studiomates. Exhale. I saw her speak at Alt Summit last year and I was beyond inspired… I’m not sure when she sleeps. Seriously.

Grace Bonney ~ Design*Sponge. She has a huge, dedicated following, and her very own, beautiful book that everyone either already has, or desperately wants: Design*Sponge at Home.

Tif Fussell ~ Dottie Angel. She has just put out a beautiful new book with Uppercase Gallery, she teaches crafty workshops, and then of course there’s her house… Yes. I want to live in her super cute, doily covered, DIY house!

Ahhh… there we go. It’s out of my head and into the world! And yes, I’m already feeling much better!

    that’s a much better way of putting it actually… but “the inspired daily curator” just doesn’t have the same ring to it ; )

    Sigh…I’m “inspired daily” by these bloggers too. And I’m inspired by you! 🙂
