Loves and Beauties

Last month, I signed up for Susannah Conway’s absolutely brilliant Unraveling E-Course.

Susannah is a beautiful and inspiring teacher and she’s been gently coaxing out my secret artist.

In the process, I’ve grabbed the camera that my son abandoned, and found two Polaroids hidden in the vast clutter of my husband’s office. Woo hoo!

Which leads me to Inspiration Fridays, a new weekly blog feature in which I will share some of the wonderful people and websites and videos that inspire me. Here’s the first collection. Please let me know if you like it, or if you have any suggestions for next week! xxoo

A video that I keep going back to: Say Yes! Andrea Gibson’s incredible spoken word poem. (Hold on to your hat – this is fierce!)

Mrs. Mediocrity. Anything but mediocre, I have always loved Kelly Letky’s beautiful blog. With a photo and a few words, she always inspires.

Brilliant. Susan Powers’ magnificent new restaurant blog. Shooting the Kitchen, features lush back of the house photos of chefs at work – featuring some of the top restaurants in the world.

Talk about fierce! Elizabeth PW unveils her lovely new website.

Mindful Spending – As I earn more, I’m becoming more awake/aware of the power of money, and how to apply it – surgically – to ‘vote’ for the world that I want to live in. Here, Tara Gentile explains why buying locally, and buying from artists is a good thing.

This made me laugh (quite a lot): My blackberry is not working

Here’s Susannah’s “Something for the Weekend” roundup, which inspired my own

And here’s another list of goodies: Tribe Love from Roots of She curator, Jenn Gibson. (Delighted to discover, when I went to get the link, that my post is mentioned here! Yay!)

My friend Lynn wrote a post about obsolescence. Got me thinking: What did I used to do that I no longer do? What do I miss? I posted my list on her blog. How about you?

    this is the second time this week that I have finally visited a site that I haven’t been able to make it to lately and received the same lovely surprise!
    Thank you so much, Amy, I am honored.
    I almost took Susannah’s class, and I still plan to at some point in the future.
    Can’t wait to see the expressions of your secret artist here!

    Amy, I am lucky to have unravelled with Susannah a couple of years ago. The incredible “consequences” of those weeks still amaze me after all this time.
    It’s quite impressive how her lessons really made me feel closer to myself, even to parts of me that I was completely out of touch with.
    Enjoy it, it’s a true gift you are giving to yourself.
    A big hug from Mexico
