Graphic Content

Did you know that Google Reader is going away?! If you are currently reading this in Google Reader, then you already know what a big fat bummer that is. I’ve heard Feedly is a suitable substitute, but I haven’t tried it out yet. Anyone with feedback on that? Of course, you can always still visit me here.  I’m not going anywhere! I’m not a fan of change!

But speaking of change, you surely know by know that the Catholic church just got a new Pope, which was what inspired Marian at Savvy Salvage Girls to create this papal-themed wine-rack.  Before: not worthy to hold crayons in the church nursery. After: Redeemed! Check out her page for up-close picture; the detail in her graphic is really mind-blowing.

And for some more graphic-goodness, check out this table from Melissa, aka The Friendly StripperFURNITURE STRIPPER, that is. She hand-stained this lotus flower on the top, then distressed it just enough to fade out the edges.  Great effect.

  1. I haven’t found any reader yet that allows me to reorder the blogs INSIDE the folders. I like to order by preference, since I have scores inside each category. :( I’d love to hear any suggestions!

  2. Feedly (http://www.feedly.com) is a great alternative to google reader. I’ve been using it now since google made their announcement. They say they will be making weekly updates. They’ve already had 500,000+ new users since google decided to shutdown reader. Check it out. You won’t be disappointed.

  3. I have been using FeeddlerRSS for reading my blogs. I have heard a lot of people using Bloglovin’ but I can’t say I’m a fan but It could be that I can’t figure it out.

  4. I found feedly a bit cumbersome and distracting at first but it’s really starting to grow on me. It’s a bit on the slow side right now but I’m sure that’s just because of the big migration and they will grow with us in the long run.

  5. I’ve been using feedly for a week or so now. It’s really easy and I would definitely recommend it :-)

  6. Love your blog and all the inspirational pieces! The wine rack made from a dresser you have featured is AMAZING. Can’t wait to go check out all the details. I’m now a follower and would love for you to stop by and visit when you get the chance! So glad I found you!!! Blessings ~ Judy @ vintagestreetdesigns.com

  7. I am still using google reader but did sign up with feedly. Seems pretty straight forward but of courser there are difference and a small learning curve to get it tweaked the way you want it.

    However….. I use igoogle as my home page and THAT’S going away in Nov – huge bummer! Does anyone have an alternative for that?

  8. I’ve switched to Feed Demon since it’s the only one I’ve seen that will let me organize my folders. I took some getting used to but now I think I like it more than Google Reader.

  9. The Savvy salvage girls link just takes me straight to my own facebook page. What’s with that? Oh, and I like the project of the make over.

  10. The transformations are unbelievable!! Thanks for the tip on feedly. I will look into it.

  11. I’m currently using bloglovin. I read reviews that it does work on android phones, but so far it has been working great on my motorola droid 3. I set it up online first, and I love that it has folders for different categories. I also love that there is a tab to browse new, popular blogs (not that I need to add to my blog list lol!). Also a huge pro in my book is that I can easily leave a comment on a blog post, such as this, without having to click a million things and wait for browsers to load, etc as I did with google reader. I haven’t tried any other new choices, but as for bloglovin…I’m lovin it ;)

  13. AWESOME!!! Love these!

  14. I’m trying to import all my contacts to “The Old Reader” right now, as it was highly recommended by another blogger. Of course I haven’t tried it yet, I’m just hoping it works out well. So not happy about the Reader situation.

  15. I just converted to NetVibes Reader, the interface is similar to Google reader (www.netvibes.com).
