Blog Spotlight: Artful Living on the Bluff

This blog feature segment began as a way to say Thank You to all of the wonderful bloggers that visit me every month. Today I want to share a very special blog with you: Artful Living on the Bluff, by Cindy Caraway.

I’m not usually a fan of fancy HTML graphics and layouts, but there’s always an exception to the rule. Artful Living is gorgeous, without being over the top. I love the rustic blue background, and there are always plenty of inspiring images to see.

With just one glance along the top of the page, it’s pretty clear what this blog is all about: Live Simply, Make Stuff, Play Music, Save the Planet. I can certainly relate, and plenty of other faithful readers do, too. Although Cindy is from Iowa, near the Mississippi, there is a real beach bonfire/Saturday farmers market vibe to her blog that reminds me of the locals here on Vancouver Island. West Coasters like myself will feel right at home.

Cindy uses this space to share news from her beadwork and vintage Etsy shops, her creative process, plus treasuries, nature and landscape photography and more!
