I take it as a sign of an active mind when I see someone or something that sends me into fits of excitement. Finding inspiration is thrilling! Inspiration doesn’t necessarily need to relate to one specific subject; in fact I just enjoy other people’s zeal and zest for life. Inevitable that spices my up own day to day. Here are some people to watch if you are looking for a little (or quite a bit) of extra color in your life.
Tim Bengel– this young German guy who, it turns out, can do some pretty amazing thing with a creative eye and some sand. You might have seen some of his YouTube videos floating around of the process he goes through to create each piece. I have no way of getting to New York to see his upcoming exhibit, and no way of flying to Stuttgart any time soon to see his other work, but one can dream, right?
The Travelettes, and especially Katja. These woman have made a career of exploring the world and telling people about it! Katja is the founder and seems to have just a fountain of good ideas about life, travel, art, and fashion. Not to mention she does it all with her adorable little toddler by her side.
Rebecca of A Clothes Horse is a blogger I have avidly followed for a year and half now. I stumbled across an interview with her on Modcloth’s blog and fell in love with her style right off the bat. Not only that, though, her blog is tastefully refreshingly and full of gorgeous photos that she takes herself. She posts fun lists of old movies to watch at Christmas time, and even involves her husband in some of her sillier photo shoots. I just never seem to get tired of her posts.
It’s a short list, but trust me, these people have enough content to keep you gazing at their pages, slack jawed, for quite some time. Enjoy!
