Get Inspired: Two

A bit of sad news folks: our beloved indoor cat has been missing for the past few days, so it’s been a bit hard to focus. Despite everything, however, the images for this week’s Get Inspired were still able to knock me off my feet!

Tommy Perez's A to Zoe(A to Zoe by Tommy Perez)

Playing with food has never looked so elegant! Artist Tommy Perez teaches his daughter the alphabet through typography in his series “A to Zoë”. See all of this works, and many other drool worthy font projects, here

Although this links back to a hair tutorial, I’m more taken in awe of this photography. The image simple yet striking not to mention, how beautiful is that color pallet?!  Okay, you got me, the hair is pretty amazing too.

Smoke by Floto + Warner(Smoke by Floto + Warner)

You may have seen the Colourant series by the photography duo Floto + Warner floating around Pinterest, but this shot is from their “Smoke” series done in 2009 has totally caught my eye. Perhaps it’s the surrealist nature of this shot, or the vivid colors, but regardless, I can’t stop staring!


P.S. Any tips you can share about finding a lot cat would be greatly appreciated!

New Column: Get Inspired

I’m starting a new column here on The Crafted Life today called Get Inspired! Yahoo! So much of what inspires me to make comes from non-craft related sources that I think it’s about time I share that side with you.  And what better way than with a new column?!

Mixology Series by Sonia Rentsch(Mixology by Sonia Rentsch)

I couldn’t dream of this type of styling even if I had to! It’s clean, clever, and beautifully shot.

Peonies #2 by Emily Faulstich(Peonies #2 by Emily Faulstich)

Sometimes the simplest photographs can be the most powerful. And I think we could all agree that peony season is much too short.

Asparagus by Nicky&Max(Asparagus by Nicky&Max)

Not only is the styling and light for this image gorgeous, but the recipe also looks like it’s absolutely delicious! Cooking is not something I do very often (or very well), so I’m always blown away by those that can.

So what do you think?! What has been inspiring you lately?
