Friday Friends: Alli


Name: Alli

Location: Cincinnati, OH


Blog Address: www.onepearlbutton.com


What are some of your hobbies? Crafting is the big one! I sew, embroider, knit, crochet, and take photos, along with dabbling in other creative pursuits. Running my blog is also a major hobby. Beyond those, I love to practice yoga, read, and spend time with my friends and family.


Tell me your favorite...

Food: dill pickles, sushi, chocolate of any form.

Drink: I try to drink mainly tea and water, but I love coke, Gin & Tonics, and red wine.

Movie: The Royal Tenenbaums, I heart Huckabees, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, the original Star Wars trilogy (I’m a nerd!).

Band/singer: The Velvet Underground, the Beatles, the Flaming Lips, David Bowie.

Color: Grey, yellow, aqua, and raspberry.

Crafting supply: Vintage fabrics, yarns, and notions. I love thrifting for my supplies, and giving things a second life in my projects.

What is your current obsession? Definitely photography, especially Polaroid photography.

How would you describe your personal style? Feminine and a bit nerdy, with a dash of inspiration from the past.


How long have you been blogging? Nearly two years, which is hard for me to believe!

What made you decide to start a blog? When I discovered blogs, I couldn’t believe how much creativity and inspiration was out there on the web, and how many amazing people were contributing to it. I had to be a part of it.

What do you like most about blogging? I love the community. The ability to meet incredible people from all over the world is absolutely what keeps me blogging.

Give me a couple of your favorite blogs to read! Oh my gosh, there are so many (I subscribe to wayyyyyy too many blogs!). I love A Beautiful Mess (http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/my_weblog/), the Bleubird Blog (http://bleubirdvintage.typepad.com/blog/), Doe-c-Doe (http://doecdoe.blogspot.com/), Freckled Nest (http://frecklednest.blogspot.com/), Inside a Black Apple (http://theblackapple.typepad.com/inside_a_black_apple/), Orchid Grey (http://orchidgrey.blogspot.com/), Smile and Wave (http://racheldenbow.blogspot.com/), Sweet Jessie (http://www.sweetjessie.com/), and Floresita: Things I’ve Made (http://unafloresita.blogspot.com/) to name just a few!


And finally, what's your biggest goal for yourself for the next year? In terms of creative goals, the biggest ones are to continue refining my photography style and technique, and to continue making One Pearl Button a more complete representation of my creative life.


And something special!
