Inspiration: Scoutie Girl

I’ve mentioned this blog before…and it’s worth repeating…Scoutie Girl rocks!

What is Scoutie Girl? In their own words…

Scoutie Girl is the blog with a penchant for the passionately handmade. We feature original design – from both emerging and established crafters – to enrich your life.

Here’s the big whoop & why you should care:
Mindless consumption of mass-produced consumer products is ____________________ (fill in the blank). On this side of the fence, we’re tired of the (usually) substandard & (usually) overpriced inventory available at Big Box Marts. We prefer unique, handmade items made in the USA. By nature, indie designers are selective and purposeful – there’s no glory in gluttony in the indie market. We’re proud of our one-at-a-time, one-of-a-kind production methods that yield fabulously original goods. And there are plenty of them out there! Keep checking back to see what Scoutie Girl has dug up for you.

Their mission statement  (a.k.a. “The Dirt”) truly rings a chord in my heart, and describes well what and why I do what I do. I love all that they do to support us indie artists, and am so happy that in a recent Craft Nouveau poll, they came in as #1! Actually, this whole list is definitely a who’s who in the world of awesome craft blogs, so if you’re in the mood to do a little surfing, sit back, relax and have at it! Thanks Craft Nouveau…I think! 😉

  1. There’s my doggie!! Hooray for both Scoutie Girls – the blog and the pooch! Tara is doing a great job at the helm, and I’m so happy for her early, awesome success!!! I wrote The Dirt more 2.5 years ago, and it still strikes a chord with me, too!
