Oh To Speak French!


I found a bunch of blogs I wanted to search through so bookmarked them. As blogs and the internet go, one blog led to another, then another and then another. And I found gold! One of my starting points was Glitter and Grunge a website that has member artists and a blog. The blog had some links to French crafting blogs. Anyway, to make a long story short I happened upon Angel Melie a beautiful space with lots of wonderful things to look at. It is written in french, but I think the eye candy is well worth the trip and the mind of a maker can always assess how something is made and do it in your own way.

I was interested in French blogs because I love the magazine Marie Claire Idees. It is a quarterly that is just filled with the most beautiful photographs, craft ideas, beautiful food and a very different sensibility than American magazines. It too is in french but I highly recommend a look. I have happened across it in Barnes & Noble and Borders. It is a little pricey, so depending on how prosperous I feel I sometimes just look through it in the store. If I'm feeling flush and buy it, I always go through it and take out the inspirational pages for my idea files.

One more thing...I'm working on my first tutorial and I'm really excited about it. Stay tuned!

Thanks for the links Susan. I learned some French when I visited there, but I guess I have forgotten all of it. Too long ago! :)
