For when you need to get your gears turning…
For the crafty folks out there…
- Country Living Magazine
I don’t read it often, but when I do, I get so many ideas. It’s great. It has craft ideas, decoration ideas, food, stories- everything I love. If I weren’t a student on a budget I would totally subscribe. If you aren’t subscribed already, or just want to browse every now and then, click here.
- Pinterest (duh?)
Pinterest is an Internet safe haven. For me, it is nothing but crafts, nice quotes, pretty pictures, decorating ideas, and recipes. It’s where I go for inspiration, thoughtless entertainment, and help around the house. When it doubt, don’t Google- Pinterest.
That reminds me… if you don’t already, follow us on Pinterest at Making With Texas!
- I Love Texas on Facebook
They aren’t as crafty, but they have lots of stuff on their page. Several of my friends on Facebook follow it, including myself , obviously. They have history, tourist destinations, jokes, pretty pictures, and more. It’s a fun page to scroll through to plan vacations, have a laugh, or whatever. It’s just fun!
For my friends who do markets and have other personal business ventures like that, this is for you. Not much to do with crafting, but with how to sell your crafts!
- Being Boss Podcast
This is a podcast for creative entrepreneurs (in fact, those are the exact words they use when introducing the show every episode) hosted by Emily Thompson, web developer and owner of Indie Shopography, and Kathleen Shannon, branding expert and co-owner of Braid Creative. I love it so much! Every episode addresses some sort of business- or self-care-related topic, from broad topics like fear to very specific ones like SEO-optimization. As a bonus, the hosts are hilarious.
Find them on iTunes or wherever you get your podcasts and at beingboss.club
- Girlboss Media
I have listened to the podcast GIrlboss Radio for a year now, but the new version just came out at the end of summer 2017. The podcast is hosted by Sophia Amoruso, the CEO of Girlboss Media and former CEO of Nasty Gal. Her podcast began as a more business-centered podcast and has evolved into more of a female-empowerment podcast, which is cool. Her media company, Girlboss Media, has grown into a site full of articles about women, business, beauty, self-care, and so much more. She and her team usually have some pretty solid content, however, I don’t necessarily agree with all of it. But, in Girlboss’s defense, that’s the exact sort of content they should be publishing, based on their audience. I know that going in, so if I read an article that advocates for something against my beliefs, I get over it and read something else that I will enjoy.
Where do y’all go for entertainment, news, and more?
