BE... Inspired: Day 4- C. Jane Create

Happy Thursday friends! I hope you've been enjoying all the guest posting that's been going on over here... so much inspiration, it's making me sew/craft each day so far (and that isn't a bad thing!) Today I want to introduce you to Christa, from "c.jane create"... what a fun blogger Christa is! She has some great DIYs, some beautiful journals and other items in her etsy shop, cute kitties, and I think you're going to love her inspiration that she has for us today!

without further adieu... I introduce you to... Christa!

Hello! I'm Christa from c. jane create! I am a graphic designer by day, and a blogger/crafter/sewer by evening. I write about creative crafting,sewing, photography, design inspiration, recipes, and sometimes just life. Recently, I opened an etsy shop filled with embellished journals, fun coasters, and flower hair pins. I live in Columbia, Missouri with three boys - one human boyfriend and two cats. Of course I find inspiration in my every day by just observing the things around me, but I'm going to share a few of my favorite tangible places to gather inspiration. :)

Flea Market Style is my new favorite magazine and they have a blog, too! I personally love antiquing and decorating with the items I find. This magazine helps me find ways to pull it all together. It also makes me wish I could find some of the items they feature!

Design Sponge is an amazing website full of inspiration and fantastic DIY ideas. I just completed one of their projects myself! I could probably spend hours browsing this website.

Browsing Etsy can fill your head with tons of inspiration, too much if you're not careful! I will often re-create things I see, like I did with this wall art for my bedroom. There are so many creative sellers on etsy.

MADE is a fantastic sewing website. I learn so many tips and tricks from Dana. I even used one of her projects to make my valentines this year. :) You are guaranteed to find a project you can do.

I know there are many more places I have gathered inspiration from, but these are the recent ones that I can think of. I hope this helps inspire you!


Thank you so much Christa for stopping by and for sharing some of your inspiration with us! I told you she was great, didn't I? Stay tuned for my inspiration tomorrow... with another guest blogger.
Pin It!
