Make Your Dreams Come True Day

Today is Make Your Dreams Come True Day!  What are some of your dreams that you want to come true?  Some of mine are incredibly... far fetched, haha.  But one that I hope to reach is to have an actual store where I sell handmade things from all over the world (including stuff that I've made, and some that some of you guys with great Etsy stores have made!) and I would love to have at least one night a week where people get together at the shop & work on projects.  Maybe have some classes (how to knit, crochet, sew, pottery, etc.) and things like that.  Here are some bloggers that really inspire me to help me make that dream come true and to create (and just inspire me on a daily basis!):
  • Elsie from A Beautiful Mess - I'm sure you have heard of Elsie before, she is behind Red Velvet Art and has recently opened up a new shop filled with vintage clothes and her sister Emma (who is awesome!) runs the Sweet Shoppe!  If you (somehow) haven't heard of Elsie or Emma before, be sure to check out both of their blogs!
  • Lehua from The Girl and Boy -Lehua is such a sweet girl and she is extremely creative.  Last year she got married and put together a beautiful wedding.  She made so many different things herself and documented it all on her blog.  She also recently started making journals and selling it in an Etsy shop.   I know nothing about scrapbooking, but she has such a unique style about her, I love getting to check out some of her scrapbooking pages when she posts it.  She has gone through a lot in the past year, but she has managed to come out on top and still be incredibly inspiring.  
  • Kim from Art Equals Happy -Kim is SUCH a talented artist!  I love when she posts photos of her day at school and we get to see things that she has been working on.  She sells a ton of awesome things in her Etsy shop (I actually have some of her work sitting next to me!)  Be sure to check out her blog, you will walk away totally inspired! 
  • James from Bleubird Vintage - James is awesome.  She just had her third kid (who is adorable!) and she has an awesome vintage store.  Recently she started taking "What We Wore" photos of her and her entire family.  Her daughter who isn't even in double digits yet dresses better than I do!  Haha.  Be sure to check out her shop & her blog, she's definitely a huge inspiration!
  • Rachel from Elephantine -  Rachel creates BEAUTIFUL jewelry, and she has made over 2,300 sales on Etsy!  She's such a sweet girl and I love getting to check out her blog and see what is currently inspiring her. 
  • Elise from Elise Joy - Elise got married last year (and you can follow along and see all of the different things she made for her wedding), has a section dedicated to goals (and is very motivating!!), has a booming (small) business and tons of tips on how to help you with your small business, and is just an extremely talented girl!  Check her out to learn a TON of stuff and be inspired! 
  • Leigh Ann from Freckled Nest -Leigh Ann is awesome!  She has
Okay, this is already a long list!  As you can tell (because it's in alphabetical order, haha.) I was going through my Google Reader when I picked this.  I will have to do part two (and probably part 3 and 4 and 5!) later. 

Here are some other links that I found while searching "Make Your Dreams Come True", haha.

What are your dreams?  What are you doing to try and achieve them?  What websites do you go to for inspiration?  Or what else inspires you?  Let me know!
