you made it so: la Vie Nouveau

blog noise.

you know that scene from the movie bruce almighty, when jim carrey is suddenly able to hear everyone’s prayers in real time, and the result is deafening and overwhelming?

that’s sometimes how i feel when floating around blogland. there is a lot of chatter out there, a lot of noise. there certainly are people out there doing what they believe in, and doing a really good job of it too. but they are often hard to hear above all the noise.

but then sometimes you come across something that rings true. someone going about their biz, doing their thing.  you can sense the difference instantly between someone doing something because they are out just for the money*. or exposure. or popularity.  and those who are doing something because they truly enjoy what they are doing.

* let me be clear. i see absolutely nothing wrong with bloggers making money for blogging, as long as they are upfront about it. anyone who blogs seriously enough knows just how much time and work goes into each post. if you’ve managed to earn money for the time and energy spent doing something you enjoy, good for you. now, be a dear and let me know where i can get such a gig ;-)

when i visited la vie nouveau’s blog, it seemed to hush all that noise. her photos are great.

she writes about what she does,


what she likes,


things she makes,


things she bakes.


i think some of my readers here may enjoy her post about making her own stamps, since we all just had a little chat about it here on iMadeItSo.

if you have the chance, take a moment and visit la vie nouveau.

follow her bike to her website, and see if you agree.  i think you might enjoy the quiet.
