The Lopsided Frog - cool chicka Etsy seller who made the neat-o dragon hats and our so generous sponsor for the "Walk the Dinosaur" giveaway.
Leonie Dawson - kickass business woman. Tons of freebies on her site. Kickin' mama, fabu hippy chick! The best creative dream helper I can refer you to is her yearly planners. A wealth of information, inspirational and practical. Best business tool I've ever used! I own both "Business" and "Life" editions.
Henry Rollins - a grandfather of the "follow your dream and be a good person" movement. So tickled that I got email from him. His spoken word is hilarious and unifying in a world that tries so hard to divide us.
Sam Keen - awesome writer. I own all of his books. Also tickled to have gotten a email from him. Do yourself a favor and go and buy every single one of his books, right now. Fire in the Belly, To a Dancing God, To Love and Be Loved and Learning to Fly are my favorites.
Sandala Moon - fabulous Etsy seller. Maker of custom Ren-Faire, fantasy, super-beautiful accessories. "Fashions for dancing under the moon."
Lillybet Clothing - neat-o Etsy shop. Upcycled patchwork skirts galore! And, from now until the end of March, Lillybet is partnering with me and offering all my readers, exclusively, a $10 discount toward the purchase of any long skirt that she makes. All you've gotta do is place the order, then send her a message saying that Visionary Bri sent you and Boom! The discount is yours.
Simply Recreated - the oh-so-wonderful craftswoman responsible for the Simply Sweatercoat Giveaway. Her creations are the perfect fanciful accessory to your bursting creative life.
UberKuchi - your Etsy source for all things Kuchi - jewelry and accessories galore
The Roaming Peddlers - whimsical and fanciful customizable kids toys - I love their stuffed dragons!
