Well I haven’t blogged in ages – have been busy with trip planning, housesitting and sorting out my computer after the motherboard blew up – long story, deserves a whole post on how I’ve become entirely too dependant on my pc (yes I am a pc and always will be).
So today I want to blog about the fabulous Pip Lincolne and how her blog inspired me to… well blog!
Travelling down Brunswick St. in the mornings on the daily commute, the ‘meet me at mikes’ sign always caught my eye and I had absolutely no idea what the store was – I thought it was another quirky little Fitzroy cafe with a smart little name and vowed I would have to one day meet someone at mike’s for coffee and check it out. Every time I passed it I would wonder “what goes on in there exactly?” but then forget in the daily grind to google it and find out.
Well as fate would have it I stumbled across the ‘meet me at mikes’ blog while trying to learn how to crochet a granny square. You can imagine my joy and excitement to find this mystery place I’d been curious about for weeks was handmade heaven, with a fantastic blog! Since then I’m experiencing my own little craft, blog, photography revolution.
Immediately Pip’s blog became a part of my toolbar and I started checking back regularly to see what was being posted, to be honest it’s the first blog I’ve actually kept up with – (aside from going on arthur ‘i’m a douche’ kade to have a good laugh). So I think that’s really saying something about Pip’s ability to draw people into her lovely little world.
You can literally spend hours on this blog, it’s a wealth of information for any of us out there that love crafting, cooking, reading, photography and the list goes on…. too much to mention here.
The thing that I love most, is all of the ‘tutorials’ and information on how to get stuff done. It was the post on starting you own craft blog that finally made me start this blog, even though this isn’t just a craft blog.
I could probably write the longest post on how much I’m in love with the ‘meet me at mikes’ blog and shop, but it would be far easier for you to just go check it you for yourself - so go there – now! Also head down to her lovely little shop – 63 Brunswick St, Fitzroy, you can’t miss the red and white sign.
OH- AND! (how could i forget this) Pip’s also released a cool book with heaps of awesome projects for you to work on at home! Check the blog or shop to purchase this one – it’s high on my list of craft books I absolutely MUST purchase when I return from Japan.
