Every creative person instinctively collects things that inspire them. Music, art, quotes, newspaper clippings, photographs, cats, clothes, or kids.
These are mine.

- ALL CAPS is a great band starring Kristina Horner and Luke Conard. I’ve been following Kristina’s YouTube channel for a long time and I enjoy her vlogs. I think I found her from Nerdfighters, but I can’t even remember anymore. Some of my favorite songs:
- World of Warcraft Ruined My Life:
- “I’m losing my boyfriend to World of Warcraft
He said he loved me and I thought it would last
We used to go out but now I’m just here waiting
He never calls back he is too busy raiding
I hate that stupid game”
- Don’t Unplug Me (Hint: It’s a robot love story) This is actually a video by MeekaKitty, not ALL CAPS, but I like this version better.
- Victoria Caswell- OK so you’ve probably seen her comments on my blog, but I’ve spent a ridiculous amount of time scouring her blog lately and I really love her inner excitement about writing. Mostly because it mirrors my own and it’s so awesome to know I’m not alone in this journey.
- But wait! There’s more! Her blog Hairnets and Hopes is really great, sure, and all her artwork is inspiring. But her website is where I was totally blown away.
- Folklore (Go. Go now. Go look!) Excerpt from her website:
- When sixteen year old Haley Martin discovers a homeless boy sleeping in her shed, she begins to realize that the little town of Linney, Kansas is not as innocent as it seems.
Hidden rooms, creepy journals, ghosts, and secret societies take over her life as she is drawn into a secret battle between the sinister forces that have controlled Linney since its inception and the scraggly remnant that still resists them.
- I would LOVE to read this story. It is right up my alley.Her website is awesome (Sort of makes me want to kill her when she says it’s her first website ever. It’s so good!) So when she gets picked up, her agent and publisher are going to be very, very lucky to have her.
- I love papercraft, and none have done papercraft as well as this young man at a college in Tokyo: Wataru Itou. He created an installation piece called A Castle on the Ocean and it is made entirely of paper. There is even a little train that goes on a track. I can’t even imagine the sheer genius in the engineering of this beautiful piece of work. What I wouldn’t give to see it in person.
