I love it when you look around a corner on the web and find a whole community of bloggers that you somehow haven't run into. And its even more exciting when they're local craft bloggers full of humour and inspiration, great photos, great ideas and cool crafting.
Just lately that seems to be happening to me a lot. Almost every week I've been adding great new blogs to my already groaning google reader roll.
Which got me to thinking it might be nice to have a regular feature on local bloggers on flower press. To learn more about these talented people, share some of their images and ideas. Of course I'd love to feature the whole world and all the fabulous international bloggers I love, but I thought an Aussie list would be an interesting perspective and make it a more manageable project!
As usual life is way beyond busy at present so it might take a little while to get off the ground. But I'm excited about it, the idea has been rolling around in my head for quite a while, and I couldn't wait any longer to share it!
I'd love input from everyone (not just australians) about questions I should ask, or people to feature (I already have a long list off the top of my head!) a name to call it or any other ideas. I'd love it if you left a comment or emailled me - (see my profile for my email address, I hesitate to put it here in case I'm offered even more Viagra!)
I'm not neccessarily looking for established bloggers or people with shops, I'm open to all suggestions. Exciting!
For something else exciting, have a look at Jesse's new Print Specs blog, where she's asking printmakers to share their secrets about tools and inks etc. It makes fascinating reading for new, experienced and aspiring printmakers. I'm going to write up my Gocco and fabric printing resources (such as they are!) soon. Come and join us.
