Creative Resources We Love (and You Will Too!)

Things I Use/Look At Everyday
TeuxDeux - A list to help me organize my life. If you're an organized creative, please, email me. I need you. 
PicMonkey - This is what I use for quick editing photos! It works great and it can now make collages. Whoopy!
Pinterest - No explanation needed here. Unless you don't know what it is, then you need to click on it, sign up, and you can thank me later. (Or kill me. Definitely one of the two.)
Instagram - An un-intimidating way of taking pretty pictures of your everyday life. Do it. It will get your juices flowing. 
Crafting a Life - I read this girl everyday. She's a creative genius. And funny. You can get her delivered to your email inbox. 
My Smashbook - I've started putting my ideas and scrap papers and napkins ideas in this book. I have one at a time. Part of me wants to have one for every "segment" of my life, but that's just not realistic. So I have one, I put everything in it and I love it. LOVE it.
