    Creative people that inspire you

    A while ago PTM linked to Katwise's stuff which really really inspired me to make stuff and all the time I see stuff that makes me want to create more.

    I know there's a links section to put in shops and sites you like etc but i thought a thread where we show stuff that inspires us would be great. I love seeing other people's work.

    if you click on the images you will be taken to the photostreams on Flickr

    So I'll start. this is eviegreenpixie on Flickr. She makes the most wonderful patchwork stuff

    Beautiful-looking food... I have never seen anything quite like that before.

    If someone has their images publicly available on the web in an online shop or other commercial setting, and you credit them, I see no reason not to post. You're sending business their way. If you were claiming it as your own, that would be a different thing.

    Yes, bento making is addictive. Even if you're not too much in cute food. I try to keep them first healthy and if time I'll add a little fancy face or so.
    I was sometimes quite surprised by some tips as to glue your cheese on your rice with honey...yuck! So, this calmed me a little! But, each time I go and check their blog, I'm just astonished! It's so prettily made!

    - He takes beautiful photos from all around Dorset, but particularly Portland and Weymouth. He does a lot of HDR.
