a little help from my friends.

clearly i'm not a very diligent blogger, these days. but there are a few folks out there who are keeping rather interesting and refreshing accounts of daily life and the joys held within. while i don't think i'll be able to live up to the goodness of these weblogs, i'm happy to call these folks friends..

first off is a new-ish blog dedicated to featuring independent artists and designers. san labels looks promising so far, and i can't wait to see what new things she discovers.

you can't bring up indie artists and designers without giving props to the ever-awesome taryn hipp. her blog, aptly titled one girl, lots to say is a collection of awesome indie links, personal anecdotes, and witty observations.

one of these days, i'm going to actually make it up to portland to visit my dear friend summer. but until then, i can follow her lovely world by stopping by design is mine, her oft-updated, always amazing collection of favorite things. design is mine is chock-full of things you swear you didn't know you needed- until now!

if you're anything like me, when you're not drooling over handmade goodies and tasty art pieces, you're probably thinking about food! sure, lots of people like food. some people even love it. david takes things to a whole new level with his blog, horny for food. don't let the title scare you; this blog is totally work-safe. while you won't find questionable images of your favorite dishes, you will find smart, irreverent commentary on the state of consumption. david touches on all sorts of topics- from primers on choosing wine and a "how-to" for amateur diners to restaurant reviews and an exploration of the link between california cuisine and gangsta rap. go, read. really, i promise you'll love it.
