I'm a mixed media collage artist that loves everything vintage.  I went to art school, owned a brick and mortar store and now I enjoy the freedom of selling on line.  I use old photos, fabric, etc. in my art.  I live in an old house in Irvington, Indiana just a stones throw from downtown Indy with my nerdy husband and our little basset hound.  Vintage mixed with new and handmade makes for a warm and interesting home.

The College Tourist is building a national community by connecting college tourists and their college towns across America through our Million Postcard Project. is a fun interactive site which allows college students to post a virtual postcard of the great things about their college towns. We embody the spirit of being a traveller both nationally and globally through uniting student's experiences of their college towns and global studies. In addition, our blog, speaks directly to the smart, savvy and fashionable college students who embrace the adventure of travel, life and fashion.

I have owned my retail store 'Out of the Blue' for 12 years. I also run The Mermaids Mercantile, a one of a kind, vintage and handmade flea market that takes place on the last Sunday of every month. In my spare time I am an aspiring actress working toward hosting my own design show. I have been creating and selling my handmade designs for 20 years. My work has been featured in several magazines and on TV. 

My name is Jules and my little blog is about all things cute. I write about my favourite things in life : being happy and living life in a positive way, living in toronto, my travels/adventures, baking cupcakes, hopes & dreams, love, and trying to spread a little sunshine in to everyones day!

My name is Rachele from The Nearsighted Owl and I like to draw, crochet, cook and take photos. I have more than a few tattoos, have been pescetarian for more than a year and am a fat acceptance activist and short hair enthusiast. I blog about lots of things from the digital portraits I create, thrifting, our cats to the outfits I wear and our adventures in Oregon.

My name is Maryam and I am a former elementary art teacher turned stay at home mom to baby Margaux.  I live in Dallas with my husband, baby and two doggies, Marzipan and Spock.  Pamplemousse1983 started as an online diary of sorts, became a more cohesive blog where I shared things I found to be interesting and relevant and eventually evolved into what it is today.  Since having Margaux I have included bits about her growth and development as well as my growth and development as a new mother and the trials that sometimes come with the territory but I try to keep the mom talk to a minimum.

Hi there lovely friends of Jenny! My name is Juli and I'm the glitter pixie wild thing in charge at Dear Sweetlings. My blog focuses on manifesting and finding magic in daily life. I love to share my hobbies and passions such as spinning my own wool, my crochet and felting projects, drawing, vintage and thrift shop finds and sneaky peeks into my secret garden (usually you can spot a shy brachiosaurus or bold faerie somewhere!) Join me in my adventures with my dashing Owl Prince and my rat babies Gandalf, Severus and Kingsley in our hobbit home. Pull up a toadstool and stay for some tea, I'd love to have you.

Hello! I'm Kate and I blog at Scathingly Brilliant -- a mish-mash of personal style, music, movies, cats and astronomy. I spend most of my time working on my etsy shop, Flapper Doodle, where I sell my illustrations and things with my illustrations printed on them.

My name is Laura McHugh and I love sharing my art, passions and creations on my blog.  Vintage2Glam is my idea of reusing colorful vintage finds, salvaging items most would consider old or used and turning them into something Glam. I Love recycling the past and incorporating these items into my own vintage inspired accessories and artwork with a modern twist.

I'm Robyn from England and Pixy is my little corner of the internet! It is a blog about all sorts of things, so even the most different of people may find something they like on there! I've been seriously blogging for about a year and a half and I love the people I have met, and I'd really like to meet more! Drop by and say hello some time. Pixy covers a lot of different subjects, from films to music to beauty to fashion and beyond! I have an unhealthy relationship with 80s action films and Ryan Gosling, collect My Little Pony and VHS tapes and LOVE new friends. I hope you like my blog!
