Amazing Way to Design Your Home, Fashion, and Art Like a Pro!

Before I begin… let me warn you… the following information could be VERY dangerous! Please continue at your own risk!

Actually, what I mean is… you’re going to love this website & the service that they provide so much, that it could become extremely addicting if you’re not careful 😉

It’s called: Polyvore

Let me try to sum up the service that they provide their members… they give you the technology to digitally arrange all of your favorite items into one beautiful collage.

It’s very simple to get started. You just enter a few bits of information to become a member (free), and then you are able to start creating right away!

After you log in, you will see a few examples of the completed collages that other members have made. I like looking through these, as they are great for ideas! Then, you can begin pulling all of your bits & bobs together to form your own new little pieces of art 😉

You can choose from the huge selection of images already at the site, or you can use their “clipper” tool to snip bits from around the web. If you do choose to snip something, the item is always linked to it’s original location, so it also helps bring the original owner some great publicity. For example, say you make beautiful jewelry and you list your items on Etsy. If someone where to clip your item & add it to their collages, not only would they be able to use it, but now it would be available to all the other Polyvore members as well. Now think about what might happen if several members used your item to build their collages… 100s – 1000s of people will start seeing your pieces & want to click the link to see where they can buy one!

* I’m thinking of all of my wonderfully talented friends (Madai 😉 out there who make such beautiful pieces! Now… I have some more ideas to help “spread the word” about their products!!!

I can think of several uses for this wonderful service without even giving it much thought, so I thought I’d share a few over the next few days to help get you started on your creative way!

I’m sure that you will be able to come up with many other great uses for this service… so be sure to share them with us in the comment section below!

Today, I want to share some ideas about planning out your wardrobe.

Now, you can pull all of the pieces together, and see how they look before you buy! And, since the links are all in tact for each item, you could simply purchase online & have them shipped to you – instead of having to actually go shopping 😉

Look at some of these examples found at Polyvore.

Next up? How about planning your wedding, special party, or room deocr using this tool?

  2. Wow!! What fun! Thanks for the link. I went over to Polyvore just to check it out and ended up playing around with it for about an hour. The possibilities are endless. Love your blog!

  3. Hello! I’m new to Polyvor. You seem to have mastered your collages! I can’t seem to save my collages in a normal size. They are so small and when I try to resize them, they get blurry. Help? Thanks! Cindy

  4. Oh my I have never seen anything so pretty as what you designed.
    I loved it and now I will go diving into your blog to see what else you have been up to.
    This is going to be fun.

  5. Just stumbled on your blog – this looks like a lot of fun, and I’m happy you pointed it out as a marketing tool for us Etsy folk. I’ll definitely be book marking and trying it out. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I have this on my facebook and you are right…IT IS TOTALLY ADDICTING! You have made some beautiful collages!!! I love how you work the backgrounds in! Hmmm, do I see fashion magazine layout in your future?? 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  7. I’m having so much fun with this I’m so glad I you found it! I’m still trying to get it right but once I do I will try to remember to get you a link to see what I’ve done.

  8. I’ve been on your site for all of 2 minutes after reading a review of your book in the Victorian Trading Company Catalogue. I’ve never had absinthe, but upon seeing your site I imagine this is what a few tiny nibbles on an asinthe soaked sugar cube would make me feel like. I am a psychotherapist by profession and work with human trauma each day. Savoring beauty is my antidote to internalizing all the pain. Bless you for sharing what is imaginative, exquisite, and elixir to the soul and senses. Gotta go, cause I’ve only just begun here, but have signed up for your e-mail list….Thank you.
