some of my favourite online tools

since I'm one of those people who spend a fair amount of time online, its only natural I would come across some amazingly helpful resources. i love all of these and use them quite often. happy clicking.

if you're looking for fun, chic and simple. this is your place. p.s. nutella ♥

textures are something I've only started to play with recently, but the possibility's are endless! 

mevChZ on Make A Gif, Animated Gifs

remember this? well, this online tool, is how I made it. shhh, i just revealed my secret.

See how everything looks so tiny, like little dollhouses? well its called tilt shift, and now you can give this effect to your photos! right here

originally was introduced to the icon finder from how about orange, and now i cant get enough. 

Agence Eureka has pages and pages of swell vintage ephemera. i could spend hours here.

Laurens Guide to >> a little thing called Crafters Block!


correct me if I'm wrong, but crafters block is really troublesome. That moment where you think to yourself, "I'm so not inspired to do anything". here's my little guide to overcoming this, (its usually what I do)
#1 Music
source
one word will do. happy! i suggest this mix. its perfect
#2 Movies.
source
Pretty vintage, happy, just those movies that make you feel warm and fuzzy
#3 Get away from the Computer.

source
Seriously, stay away.
#4 The Library

source
Since you're being so good about not touching your computer, you'll need somewhere to get that inspiration flowing! I say hit the books. Craft section please
#5 Food

source

whole-hearted, healthy food'll do the trick. green kitchen stories is a must read foodie blog.
#6 be YOU!
just be positive, remember the things you love and you'll be back to your blogging, crafting etc...in NO time!
have other "suggestions", do tell me! leave a comment!
