I have a lot of friends who are talented. Very talented.
I know that I am biased, but I really do know some amazingly creative individuals. After all, that is the legacy a good art college leaves you with.
Some are well established designers, and some are just starting out. But if you are interested in design (particularly textile design), they are all well worth checking out. Which leads me to this, the idea for my latest blog:
A small number of these incredibly talented folks have blogs that help to give their work some exposure. However, there are millions of blogs out there, so it is pretty unlikely that you will discover their talent through sheer chance. So, I’m going to make things easier for you and share my friend-blog community with you.
“How?” I hear you ask. Well isn’t it obvious? I’m going to make a list 🙂
Stop sifting through the vast blogosphere for a moment and check these lovelies out:

cutiehoots.blogspot.com will put a smile on your face if you like children and cute clothes. As a bonus, the blogger makes and sells very cute shirts.
There you go. Have a look at the blogs, have a look at their work, and then you will see that I’m right.
A very talented lot.
