1000 Creatives I found in 2011
So two weeks ago I mentioned on my blog that one of my resolutions this year is to discover 1000 New Creatives Online. By 'creatives' I mean anyone/ anything online whether it's a blog, musician, new website, crafty person on twitter, an artist blog, a handmade shop on etsy etc. It could just be a new idea, new art by an artist I already know. As long as it's someone/ something new to me in 2011. I'm hoping you can all help me along my journey and suggest on the comments below a website, song, blog, video, online store or creative individual I should check out. Every Monday I will list any new creatives I discover and enjoy on my blog and will 'countdown' my list to keep me on track.
