Hats off

Blogging has provided me with unbelievable inspiration. Inspiration to follow a new career path. Inspiration to create beautiful spaces. Inspiration to take huge leaps of faith. 

What is even more amazing and inspiring is to see bloggers accomplishing MAJOR things through the internet. Just this week, I've been blown away by two of these people.

First, Jess (a follow Chicago blogger) created her own line of handbags. She already has a gorgeous line of jewelry, and now added to her portfolio... purses. And they're not just any bags, they're gorgeous, lust-after-for-months bags. 





Also, this week, Jen from MadebyGirl opened Cocoa & Hearts, a shop where all of her original paintings are now being sold. I am in absolute awe. This is the kind of artwork that MAKES your house. In her first week open, shes already sold quite a few pieces too!


Congratulations to both of these ladies for inspiring other bloggers to do what they love!
